Partially attributing to the 18-13 season was the program’s self-imposed, post-season ban in response to ongoing NCAA investigations into past infractions by the team. This is the third season that Syracuse has finished with fewer than 20 wins...

Syracuse Football: Ex-Syracuse Star, Patriot DE Chandler Jones Shouts Out Orange Freshman Jake Pickard For Wearing Number 99

Defensive end Jake Pickard was one of the top signees for Syracuse in the 2015 recruiting class, and the number he was issued for his freshman season reflects that.

Despite all of that, Orange fans still turned out in a big way this season, edging out Kentucky for the national lead in average...

Christopher Fredrick Could Surprise This Fall

With the Syracuse University football class of 2015 having recently arrived on campus over the holiday weekend, it feels like a good time to start looking ahead at players who might get on the field early in their careers.

Could This Be Jim Boeheim’s Last Year At Syracuse?

Now that it is officially official and Mike Hopkins will be the next head coach at SU, maybe Coach Boeheim’s time will come to an end sooner than expected.

I’ve long held the belief that this would be his final year, and in fact thought he would have retired...
