Just one month until National Signing Day and The Fizz flips the script to 2013. What new faces can make an immediate impact for Syracuse? The program graduates 17 seniors, the first four-year group of Doug Marrone’s tenure. Although Greg Adkins says the incoming SU recruiting class will be smaller than usual, the Orange brings back solid veteran leadership and a formidable roster to the ACC. There are currently 14 commits to the program, and if some dominos fall correctly (like Ebo Ogundeko deciding Friday), that number could increase slightly to 16 or 17. Regardless, Marrone and company have put together arguably their strongest class to date. The real debate is which players come in and make an immediate impact on the success of the Orange. The Fizz ranks who of the current commits have the potential to make the biggest impact.

There are two unfortunate dynamics surrounding the NFL’s coaching searches. First and foremost, at least three teams are going to interview Doug Marrone for their vacancies. Secondly, even John Clayton mispronounced it “Marrone-ey” last night on SportsCenter. Twice. Is this what Orange Nation has to suffer through these next two weeks?
Looks like Doug will get looks from Buffalo...
The Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns were two teams of a handful who either replaced their head coach, general manager or both on Black Monday, and they have already turned their focus to a college football head coach as a possible replacement.
Cool your jets, Bills and Browns fans. It is not Chip Kelly of the Oregon Ducks.
While Kelly will also likely be pursued by a handful of...
Rumors continue to swirl around the Browns’ head coaching vacancy.
From Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports, four teams, including the Browns, are interested in interviewing Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien. At 43 years old, O’Brien was 8-4 in his first year at Penn State after five years as a wide receivers’ coach, quarterbacks’ coach, and offensive coordinator under Bill...
Penn State coach Bill O'Brien and Syracuse coach Doug Marrone reportedly have interviewed this week for the Cleveland Browns' coaching job. The Cleveland Plain-Dealer reported Thursday said the Browns also will interview Oregon coach Chip Kelly on Friday, the day after his team competed in the Fiesta Bowl. All interviews were conducted in the Phoenix area, where the Browns...
Although the Browns’ first choice for their next head coach is Oregon’s Chip Kelly, that didn’t stop them from bringing in two other offensive minded college head coaches this week.
Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien and Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone both had meetings with Cleveland, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The team will interview Kelly...
Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports tweets that he’s ”hearing” that the Browns could look to target Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone and Patriots OC Josh McDaniels if they end up missing out on Oregon head coach Chip Kelly in the coming days.
Browns are reportedly prepared to make Kelly an “offer he can’t refuse,” so it’s say to suggest that they have a very good shot...
"Daryl, there's a reason I kept the orange sweater vest in storage."The internets are all abuzz with the talk of Doug Marrone interviewing for a potential NFL head coaching gig. If he does move on, the focus in CNY will turn to Doug's replacement. Following the lead of Barry Alvarez and Bill Snyder, we've assembled a collective list of reasons to bring back...
Syracuse has branded itself as New York’s College Team. Daryl Gross has marketed it, but Doug Marrone has embodied it. He’s used it to dominate the recruiting grounds in NYC, and most importantly Brooklyn. The Fizz has highlighted Marrone’s success in this regard over the last few years. In 2010, HCDM’s first full recruiting class, he reeled in just one recruit from New...
Tonight may help define Syracuse football’s return from purgatory more than any other this offseason. A pair of highly sought after New York City products could both choose the Orange, and set up the program for years to come. Four-star DE/OLB Ebenezer Ogundeko will make his decision between SU and Clemson during the second quarter of the Under Armour All-American game in Orlando...
