Although there won’t be another SU football game inside the Carrier Dome for another five months, the Spring Game provided Orange Nation a final glimpse into what to expect this fall. Terrel Hunt shined in his debut, Prince-Tyson Gulley erased his signature dreadlocks, and Scott Shafer enjoyed every moment with the Syracuse fans.
We take the Fizz Fam under the Fizz Microscope from Saturday. Here are the team’s biggest storylines in the words of the players that shined on Saturday.

“Being behind [Alec Lemon and Marcus Sales] last year, I wanted to be the best and I was mad that they had a lot of shine. I was always in the shadow of them, so I’m ready for the competition. It was fun to make a play and then come over to the sideline and [see Lemon saying] ‘I see you out there West.’ It’s been exciting.”
This is Jarrod’s offense. He has now become one of the senior leaders that will lead the unit on the gridiron. He spent an entire season watching Lemon and Ryan Nassib ...

First off, this gives the Orange a major boost going...
Syracuse's C.J. Fair is returning for his senior season.
The Orange's leading scorer and rebounder last season announced his decision Wednesday, saying another year of college basketball and graduating are in his best interests.
The return of Fair, who averaged 14.5 points and 6.9 rebounds last season, gives coach Jim Boeheim a nice boost as Syracuse transitions to the...

Right now the three main combatants are Charley Loeb (Ryan Nassib’s backup the last three years), Terrel Hunt, and John Kinder. The Orange also has Oklahoma transfer Drew...
