When a football team picks up a first down, the color commentator will sometimes say that the happiest guys on the field are actually on the sideline — the defensive players getting an extended rest while their offense maintains a long drive and chews up clock. It’s a common announcer trope, but it does hold true when that offense operates at a fast pace, as Syracuse is expected...

The Syracuse Orange look to start improving vastly over the next few years with Dino Babers firmly in place as their new head coach. They can start the improvements by scheduling out some teams they should be able to beat and they did just that with a 2017 home match-up against the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders. The Orange announced on Friday that they will host the Blue Raiders...

The Syracuse football staff picked up another talented defensive prospect on Sunday as outside linebacker Kadeem Trotter pledged to the Orange after competing at the team’s camp recently.

This is a big weekend for Syracuse basketball recruiting. Yeah, we’re still waiting to find out what’s happening on the Taurean Thompson front and trying to round out the roster for the upcoming season. But it’s important to remember, the 2017 recruiting class is absolutely essential. And arguably one of the “must-get” players is currently […]
Recruiting is such a difficult topic to cover because there are so many moving parts, often words mean little and everything is always changing. Something that often gets lost when one is caught up in the latest commits to their given team is what their team actually needs. When talking about Syracuse, things get even more dicey because the holes that Syracuse has are so glaring...
If Orange is the new fast, then Syracuse is certainly living up to that motto. SU took a huge stride in the speed department after landing Class of 2017 wide receiver Joshua Palmer.
