Syracuse’s recent history with senior starting QBs

Syracuse’s recent history with senior starting QBs

Relive the fun from Troy Nunes to Zack Mahoney... As you know, Eric Dungey will (barring something entirely unforeseen) be the starting quarterback for the Syracuse Orange to open the 2018 season. The senior hasn’t necessarily finished up any of the three years he’s been a starter. However, we’ve enjoying his time on campus for his play-making ability and harrowing style of play. Now he just needs the winning record to cap things off. Being a senior would seem to predispose you to a chance at that — having experience is huge, and hopefully that lifts up even a young team around you...

Syracuse football: Why the Orange will finish 4-8 in 2018

Ducking from everyone who comments without reading first Ed. Note -- As has become tradition, TNIAAM writers will spend the week telling you why this year’s Syracuse football team will finish with a specific record. With that in mind, don’t get all huffy about this prediction just yet — it improves as we go. Monday: 3-9 (John) Tuesday: 4-8 (Kevin) Wednesday: 5-7 (Brandon) Thursday: 6-6 (Andy) Friday: 7-5 (This guy Sean) Syracuse Orange fans have had to deal with a number of worst-case scenarios in recent years. Unfortunately I might have some bad news for those of you thinking the...

Syracuse football 2018 position preview: Special teams

We’re potentially looking good... though an injury could provide some worry. With Syracuse Orange football kickoff less than two weeks away, we’ve reached our final position preview article. Leading up to the 2018 kickoff, we’ve been profiling one group and every player suiting up at that position this fall. Last week, we took a look at the secondary and its transition to a 4-2-5 scheme. This time, we finish off with: Special teams If you buy into advanced metrics (and you certainly should for most things), Syracuse’s special teams were a top-10 unit last year. The punt unit was...
Can Jalen Carey be the difference-maker Syracuse needs?

Can Jalen Carey be the difference-maker Syracuse needs?

Another impact freshman? Yes, please! Backcourt support was an anomaly to say the least for the Syracuse Orange last season — just look at Frank Howard and Tyus Battle’s minutes per game, and that should tell the tale itself (as you know, the two found themselves at the top of the list in the nation). With the school year right around the corner, the Orange are starting to gear up for the 2018-19 campaign, as the expectations have taken quite a leap compared to last year’s roller-coaster ride of a season. Coach Jim Boeheim is going to need his backcourt to dominate once again, but if...

SU scheduling smart, but tourney chances shouldn’t be in doubt (LINKS)

Scheduling conversations of a different kind, for once... With the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball non-conference schedule complete, we now know every opponent SU will face during the 2018-19 season. In recent years, Syracuse’s non-conference schedule and wins away from home have made the difference between the Orange getting into the NCAA Tournament and being left out. Syraucse.com asks if this year’s non-conference slate will help the team make the NCAA Tournament, and while it can’t hurt, I also think we should be firmly off the proverbial bubble come Selection Sunday in...

Syracuse football: Why the Orange will finish 3-9 in 2018

Disloyalty is a skill, and sometimes we use it for evil. Ed.

2021 recruiting target Terrence Clarke attending Elite Camp on Saturday

Terrence Clarke (pictured right) is the No. 1 recruit in the class of 2021. He’ll head to Syracuse this weekend for Jim Boeheim’s Elite Camp. Terrence Clarke is the No. 1 rated basketball prospect in the class of 2021, according to 247 sports. Listed at 6-foot-6, Clarke is a long, athletic wing who runs with Expressions Elite on the Nike EYBL circuit. He’s from the Boston area but will transfer to a school Syracuse Orange fans are surely familiar with this fall (Brewster Academy) and was just offered by the SU last month. Everything Earned Blessed and Honored to Receive An Offer...
Wildhack teases Fall decision for Syracuse endorsement deal news (LINKS)

Wildhack teases Fall decision for Syracuse endorsement deal news (LINKS)

The Orange will have a new contract with someone locked up soon... we’re just not sure who. We spend quite a bit of time complaining about the Syracuse Orange’s football uniforms around here, while most of SU’s other sports are fine. Some of that falls at the feet of Syracuse to make things better, but most of the onus truly lies with Nike, the athletic department’s official outfitter. There are no new uniforms for Syracuse this year, in the final season of its current contract. So thankfully, that means we won’t be introducing any hideous new options to compete with Notre...

Get to Know Your Orange Man: #18, WR Ed Hendrix

Let’s learn about a hopeful future Orange star in our FINAL “Get to Know” piece of the offseason. Name: Ed Hendrix Position: Wide Receiver Year: Freshman Height: 6’3” Weight: 195 Hometown: Washington D.C. High School: H.D. Woodson 2017 Stats: As a senior at H.D. Woodson, he caught 27 passes for 585 yards (21.7 avg) and 14 touchdowns while leading the team as a captain. 2018 Projections: Hendrix comes in as the most talented freshman wideout, and should spend camp competing for snaps. I’d bet if he impresses in camp, Hendrix gets early looks and if he can hold his own, gets into...
Syracuse Football: What If... Don McPherson Won the Heisman?

Syracuse Football: What If... Don McPherson Won the Heisman?

In an alternate universe, Earth-44 to be exact, Syracuse Football looks ever so slightly different than the one we know. Welcome to Syracuse Football What If Don McPherson won the Heisman Trophy? Thanks to the powers of discarded Food Lion produce and dishonored contracts, I have found a way to view an alternate universe named Earth-44. Every time I visit this place, something has changed with Syracuse Football. This series will report my chronological travels to this alternate earth and the TNIAAM staff tries to figure out what it all means, since I can only view the one game I end up in....

Get to Know Your Orange Man: #20, WR Ethan Fischler

A walk-on travels cross-country to join the Orange Name: Ethan Fischler Position: Wide Receiver Year: Freshman Height: 6’0” Weight: 175 Hometown: Orina, Calif. High School: Miramonte 2017 Stats: Ethan was a starter at wide receiver and had 48 receptions and 11 touchdowns for Miramonte. 2018 Projections: As a preferred walk-on, Ethan will most likely spend 2018 as a member of the scout team for the Syracuse Orange. His size would seem to project him as a slot receiver. How Did He Get Here?: Ethan was offered a preferred walk-on spot back in January. What Did Recruiting Sites Say?: No...

TNIAAP: ACC Atlantic Division Preview

This week, we’ve got all the ACC Atlantic preview you can handle. It’s a whole lot of Atlantic Division talk this week, as we talk about the Syracuse Orange’s most frequent ACC football opponents for an extended amount of time. Also, thanks as always, to our producer Louis for making this listenable. Some of the larger topics this week: Virginia is SUPER MAD about beer rankings Louisville’s defense could be SUPER BAD Why Boston College has no business being mentioned near the top 25 How big of a step back could NC State take this season? Wake Forest loses more than people...

On the offensive side of the ball, he also had 534 total yards and 11 touchdowns. Trill returned punts as well. 2018 Projections: He could very well redshirt, though he’s already second on the Syracuse Orange two-deep depth chart right now. Trill has a...

Can’t beat Greg Robinson in South Bend? Then copy that team in the rematch in Yankee Stadium? The Syracuse Orange and Notre Dame Fighting Irish will play in Yankee Stadium this November in Notre Dame’s Shamrock Series, instead of just playing in South Bend.
