Found September 10, 2013 on Philly Sports Live:
Syracuse head coach, Scott Shafer, has thrown his support behind Drew Allen despite the new quarterback’s underwhelming debut in the narrow defeat to Penn State in the season’s opening game. But, while the season may not have started as the Orange faithful would have liked, the sports betting still appears to suggest Syracuse will be […]

Week 2, D.A.’s Knee-Jerk Reaction: Syracuse Pummeled by Northwestern

Drew Allen looks in over his head. The Wildcats defense completely befuddled him, and Allen has now thrown 6 picks in 2 starts. Not sure Terrel Hunt is quite as good as that touchdown drive he led late, but he can’t be a worse option than Allen right now, can he? Not to get too far ahead of ourselves here, but the math is not good for Syracuse to get to a bowl game after the 0...

Hunt Will Get Plays vs. Wagner Meaning Syracuse Opens Up QB Competition

There is no doubt about it now. The Syracuse coaching staff has officially opened up the quarterback competition again. Drew Allen is the starter against Wagner, but that’s really a formality. Terrel Hunt has been told he will get some playing time this weekend, and rightfully so. Allen has been close to terrible, while Hunt led an energized touchdown drive late against Northwestern...

Fizz 5: Syracuse’s QB Decision, Ground Game Invisible, Shafer Gets Testy

After getting manhandled by Northwestern, Scott Shafer might as well toss Syracuse’s game footage right out the window. The Orange was pummeled by the #19 Wildcats 48-27 and SU doesn’t quite look like one with a “hardnosed” mindset like the head coach preached in the preseason. These last two weeks were tough to watch. There’s been no signs of a ground-and-pound offense...

Fixing the Offense: Here’s how Syracuse Needs to Attack the Wagner Defense

Two weeks down and two losses later, Orange Nation is feeling deflated to start the season. It’s not even the 0-2 start that has the Syracuse faithful down, but the lackluster offensive production thus far. But it’s not all bad. Yes, Drew Allen has struggled mightily and the defense is still working out consistency issues, but there is a lot of season left. Luckily, Wagner...

Good Ol' Fashioned QB Controversy for Syracuse

I'm not going to lie: this was a rough weekend. Syracuse didn't look good in their woodshed loss and my Steelers managed to lose three starters for the season in one game. (An aside, HOW THE HECK DOES THAT HAPPEN??) Anyways, to the Orange. To Drew Allen and Terrell Hunt. Let's cover the basics: In two games Allen has thrown for 468 yards, 1 TD and 6 INT. That's not...

Syracuse vs. Wagner: Terrel Hunt Will Play Saturday

Syracuse Orange football fans seem to be devolving into two camps at the moment. #TeamLetsSeeHowThisPlaysOutCauseItsStillEarly #TeamPutTerrelHuntInBecauseDrewAllenSucksAndTerrelHuntIsProbablyGod That second one got some good news Tuesday. "I know Drew is going to be our starter," Lester said. "He has the most reps, he's running the offense well. But Hunt'...
