JEROME SMITH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Code Red: Syracuse’s Red Zone Inefficiency is Killing the Orange

Man, do the Orange miss Jerome Smith. SU’s leading rusher last season scored 12 touchdowns in 13 games for Syracuse. This year, the only Orange player who has had any success at finding the end zone is Terrel Hunt. SU’s quarterback has rushed for 6 touchdowns so far, but three of those came in the Orange’s 40-3 rout of Central Michigan. This has become a major problem for...

Ground Delivery: Shafer Must Decide How to Use His RBs

Rich Barnes, USA Today Who will take over the bulk of the Syracuse carries? Jerome Smith had his breakout season last year and then declared for the NFL Draft. Smith, one of the captains on a Syracuse squad that won the Texas Bowl, rushed for just over 900 yards and found the end zone 12 times. Smith’s sophomore season he gained over 1,100 yards, but only scored three touchdowns...

Syracuse: RB Jerome Smith Going Pro

Jerome Smith changes course and announces that he will go pro, forging his final season at Syracuse. I admit, I was surprised when Syracuse Orange RB Jerome Smith told Bud Poliquin, "yeah, I'm coming back" in early December. Considering he almost jumped to the NFL before this season, it seemed strange that he'd want to come back for yet another season in the midst...

Syracuse RB Jerome Smith: 'Yeah, I'm Coming Back'

Jerome Smith tells reporters that he's coming back for his senior season. We've kinda gotten used to the idea that any Syracuse Orange football junior who has shown a modicum of progress will go pro rather than wait around for their stock to drop. We're all pretty much in agreement that junior Sean Hickey is a goner. And I thought that most of us figured RB Jerome Smith...

Syracuse rolls past Maryland 20-3

Jerome Smith ran for 118 yards and two touchdowns, and Syracuse used a strong defensive effort to beat error-prone Maryland 20-3 Saturday. Smith scored from the 1 in the first quarter and added a 21-yard TD with 10:33 left to put the Orange up by 17. It was his third 100-yard game of the season and eighth of his career. Durell Eskridge and Julian Whigham had interceptions for Syracuse...

Long Distance Romeing: Jerome Smith is the Key to Productive Syracuse Attack

Orange Nation enjoyed watching tailback Jerome Smith last year. The bruising runner led Syracuse with 1,171 yards on just 227 carries and three touchdowns. He did it by running angrier than most Big East running backs. How will he bring that aggression and grit to the ACC? It’s pretty simple: by staying as humble and even-keel off the field during the off-season. He is the key...

Smith leading a Syracuse running game revival

When Syracuse decided to go to a no-huddle offense before the start of the season, the Orange lost its focus. The run became an afterthought. But after falling to 2-4 and with the season slipping away despite a stout aerial attack, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett decided the run was the missing link. Since a bad loss at Rutgers - four turnovers and a blocked field goal...
