Follow @orangefizz on Twitter for in-game updates from the Dome & DA’s Knee Jerk Reaction column right after the game How realistic is an Orange U-turn? SU would have to win five of its next eight games to claim bowl eligibility. There is a clear sense of urgency not just with the players, but with the coaching staff. The Fizz welcomed an all-star crew on Fizz Radio to break down Doug Marrone’s future. He knows every move will be examined with great detail. ”My philosophy has been when you’re struggling, the player, in my opinion, is looking for answers.

Notes Leading Up To Pitt-Cuse

Okay, busy day ahead. Have to clear out work. Get other crap out of the way. Then have to do enough that the family will leave me alone by 7pm. Someone fire the guy (or gal) who does the headlines at the P-G. There is no Pitt-Syracuse rivalry. Both fanbases know it, and accept it. Heck, read the article.
