Orange Heading to Tampa for First Road Game

It feels kind of bizarre that, here in the first week of October and five weeks into the 2015 season, the Syracuse University football team is just now preparing for its first road trip of the year. I’m sure some “witty” columnist is out there working on a joke about how Jim Boeheim must have […]

SU Football Grades Through Four Games

Through four games Syracuse football gets a B. SU enters its bye week at 3-1 after a demolition over Rhode Island, hard fought wins over Wake Forest and Central Michigan and a competitive loss to LSU. Many pundits picked the Orange to come out of the gates hot, but once Terrel Hunt went down the season could’ve taken a turn for the worse. Instead Syracuse has fought to win three...

Orange Looking at ’16 QB Zack Weatherly

With the Syracuse University football team’s quarterback group looking closer to a M*A*S*H unit over the past two seasons, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Tim Lester and Scott Shafer are looking to bolster the position with as much depth and talent as possible. After all, six quarterbacks have taken snaps for […]

Syracuse Extends Flurry of Football Offers

Today, the Orange extended numerous offers, primarily down in Florida. […]

Syracuse Offers Scholarship To Kevin Knox II

Syracuse basketball has been going after elite recruits in the 2017 class, a trend which continued Tuesday. Kevin Knox II, a five-star recruit out of Tampa, FL, tweeted this out yesterday: Knox is listed as the third best small forward in the 2017 class on ESPN, but he could easily be considered a power forward as well. He stands at 6’8” and 194 pounds, and wears a size 18 shoe...

The Good and the Bad of the Bye Week

The Orange have done as well as anyone could have expected going into their bye week, winning their first three games and playing SEC giants LSU very tough. Now, with a 3-1 record, Syracuse enters a week off, giving them extra time to prepare for their next opponent, the University of South Florida. This bye week falls at a very interesting time. An optimist can easily say that this...

The Orange Played a Hell of a Game

Bottom line: This game exceeded expectations. Fans expectations, media expectations, and my expectations. This was a fantastic game played by the Syracuse Orange and a game that could catapult the Orange ahead the rest of the season. Yes, Zack Mahoney struggled, and I continue to wonder why the Orange didn’t make a change at some point over the course of the game- after the game...

WATCH: Syracuse Punter Leaps One LSUY Defender And Nearly Punches Another

Punters are not know for making big plays. Occasionally they nail a deep punt that stops at the one or something like that, but otherwise you don't expect much out of these guys. Well--Syracuse certainly got much more than just good punting out of their guy, Riley Dixon.Dixon took off running on a fake field goal attempt during the first half of play, and rather than get tackled...

Video: Syracuse’s Punter Hurdles Defender, Gets Up, Accidentally Punches LSU Player

LSU has the lead against Syracuse in upstate New York, but the Orange certainly are giving the Tigers a game. SU punter Riley Dixon is one major reason why. Late in the second quarter, Dixon hurdled an LSU defender after a fake punt on fourth down, then accidentally punched a Tigers player celebrating. He wasn’t flagged, since it wasn’t deliberate. Unfortunately for Syracuse...

When DaJuan Coleman arrived at Syracuse in 2012, he was a five-star recruit and McDonald’s All-American out of Jamesville-DeWitt High School in DeWitt, New York, just five miles away from campus. Fast forward to today, and his time with the Orange has been marred by knee injuries. In 37 games, Coleman has averaged just 4.6 points and four rebounds over 12.8 minutes per game. In...
