The Orange had a great regular season last year only losing 1 game in Big East play. However, they failed to make the Final Four somewhere they haven’t been since 2003.

So our man Darius Kelly lets the cat out of the bag, and now the world knows Scott Shafer will assume the head coaching position at Syracuse. I’m glad the program has a guy like Kelly in the fray. Just means we’ll be getting some honesty around these parts. Ask a question, get an answer. I like that.
I also like Shafer quickly being promoted to Doug Marrone’s position. On New...
