Syracuse Target Jamal Holloway To Make Decision Tuesday

A 6’4” defensive end from Camden, NJ, Jamal Holloway put Syracuse on his top 10 list earlier this month. Around the time the list was put together, we took a look at the chances he would come to SU.

Devante McFarlane Could Be the Key to Offensive Success

Last year’s offense was historically bad for the Syracuse University football team, with a unit plagued by injury and what we’re learning more and more was ineptitude behind the scenes stemming primarily from former offensive coordinator George McDonald. It didn’t help that the Orange had one of the worst rushing seasons in recent memory, something […]

Syracuse Football used one snap cadence all year

In football, a key to success at any level is to keep your opponent guessing. The element of surprise allows offenses to test their opponents ability to think and react on their feet without being able to rely on practice or previous game film to assist their play. It’s all about gaining an edge. Or so we thought. Syracuse University’s offensive coordinator Tim Lester told Syracuse...

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. Pickard posted a picture earlier today of his locker, complete with a sign indicating he’ll don No. 99, the same digits worn by former Syracuse star defensive lineman Chandler Jones.  Ready to prove myself #OrangeNation...

Hooker Could Be a Cure-All for Syracuse

Ever since Syracuse University lost Donovan McNabb after the 1998 season, the Orange football program has been looking for the next great quarterback. In nearly 20 years since McNabb graduated, the University has had a lot of mediocrity at the position, save for a few good years with Ryan Nassib at the helm. The Orange […]

For Once, It’s Syracuse Turning Down Football Recruits

With the recent flurry of commitments, lost in the fray was KJ Gray’s commitment to Boston College. The 2016 wide receiver is relevant to SU not for his commitment, but rather, for what the coaching staff told him. Gray said that he hadn’t heard from the Syracuse coaches in roughly two months, because the staff told him that they were not accepting commitments from any other...

The Wayne Williams Experiment Fails

Well, that didn’t go as planned. Defensive tackle Wayne Williams’ Syracuse career came to an abrupt end on Tuesday when the University announced that Williams would no longer be a member of the football program. A senior who was almost guaranteed significant playing time, Williams’ time on the Hill was marred by off-field issues. Listed at 6-foot-4 and 325 pounds, he has immense...

Sean McKeon, Solomon Manning Committing Elsewhere Not a Problem

All is not green in the land of Orange. Despite having a very successful week off of the field, the Orange lost two recruits to recruiting rivals. First, New Jersey linebacker Solomon Manning selected Rutgers; it gets a little dicey though. Manning never held an offer from the Syracuse program, although he participated in a one-day camp over the weekend. Many suspect that the Scarlet...

Okay, this is the wildest of wild speculation, but stick with me here.
