Fizz 5: Syracuse Displays Its Weaponry in Response to Early Criticism

Syracuse’s coaching staff was under fire following the opening night near-disaster against Villanova. But Terrel Hunt highlighted a reassuring victory for the Orange on Saturday. SU coasted 40-3 over Central Michigan, in part to the starting quarterback’s return to the lineup. The Syracuse offense lit up CMU’s defense, while Cooper Rush looked frightened in the pocket on...

Surprise! Here’s the Eye-Opening Facts on Syracuse’s Domination

Using a well-balanced attack of power running and quarterback accuracy and power, the Orange surprised many with a dominating effort on the road. Central Michigan had just beaten up Purdue the week earlier, while SU struggled to defeat FCS Villanova.

Wake Up! Syracuse Needs Answers From Its Backfield

Courtesy: Syracuse.com There has been a lot of questions asked about the Syracuse running backs. Who would step up as the second guy behind Prince Tyson Gulley? Could Adonis Ameen-Moore make an impact after getting virtually no playing time last year? We needs more answers, but look to this weekend for even more separation.

Fizz 5: The Keys to a Syracuse Win Over Central Michigan

After Syracuse barely knocked off Villanova, the Orange try to make it two straight wins, but hopefully this one in better fashion. Two major things went wrong in the Villanova game. The defense was far less effective than last year. And Terrel Hunt used his fists (which never serves a point in football). But there’s more to it. A program that has won three bowl games in four...

Syracuse focused on tackling during bye

The punch is forgotten. The missed tackles, not so much for Syracuse coach Scott Shafer. With a bye week to get an ugly, one-point, double-overtime victory over Villanova and quarterback Terrel Hunt's ejection-causing jab safely in the rearview mirror, Shafer has honed in on an irritating issue that surfaced in the season-opener against the Wildcats.

Glass Half Full: It’s Not All Negative for Syracuse Football

The Orange looked underprepared, unmotivated, and at times terrible, against Villanova. If Wildcats kicker Chris Gough had knocked down either a 34-yard field goal or a 25-yarder the Orange would have had one of the most embarrassing losses in recent memory. We know the ugliness by now: Terrel Hunt threw a bonehead punch. Syracuse struggled to stop quarterback John Robertson, and...

Everyone Calm Down: No Reason to Panic After One Game

Lost Letterman Orange fans going crazy after a one-point win over Villanova is a little bit unnecessary. One game at this point in the season does not determine how the rest of the season will go. Syracuse’s night certainly did not go the way most had planned, and that includes Wildcats head coach Andy Talley. His main goal was to leave Central New York with a healthy team. Not...

Syracuse gets a reprieve: a bye week

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Syracuse is unbeaten after one game. That's the good news for the Orange. But there's a lot of not-so-good as the Orange have a bye week to sort things out following a precarious 27-26 victory over Villanova in double overtime. Perhaps the biggest concern was starting quarterback Terrel Hunt punching opposing linebacker Dillon Lucas late in the first...

Stay the Course: Austin Wilson is Not Ready to Start at QB

Ever since Terrel Hunt threw the punch that ejected him from Friday’s win over Villanova, there has been chatter of him possibly getting benched for Austin Wilson (including here on the Fizz). Sorry to those clamoring for Wilson, but that is simply not the answer right now. Should Hunt have known better and controlled himself? Absolutely. Was Hunt lighting it up against Villanova...

Failure Up Front: Syracuse Defensive Front Four is a Problem After Nova

Syracuse’s defense prided itself last season on not allowing a single 100-yard rusher. Friday night, Villanova’s quarterback John Robertson made sure the 2014 Orange would not continue the trend. He finished with 115 yards on 34 carries. SU’s front four had no answer for the Wildcats elusive QB. The majority of talk following this game surrounded Terrel Hunt’s ejection...

Fizz 5: Syracuse QB Austin Wilson Should Get First Team Reps

We’ve heard it all on the Hill the last few days. A win’s a win. It wasn’t pretty but they got it done. But this was Syracuse against FCS opponent Villanova. The Orange barely snuck out with a 27-26 win at the Dome.
