Syracuse 2019 spring football preview: Running backs

We already got a preview of the new backfield in the bowl game, and things look pretty positive early. The Syracuse Orange added 21 players in the class of 2019, and with that, we get to officially turn the page to next season. No word on when spring practice gets going yet (I’m sure we’ll know soon). But ahead of that and the spring game, we’re previewing each position group on the roster. Last week, we led off this series with the quarterbacks as SU moves on from Eric Dungey. Next up: Can Syracuse’s run game continue to build on 2018’s success? Who’s gone? Dontae Strickland...

Kentucky vs. Missouri Game Thread & Pregame Reading

The Wildcats look to avenge last year’s loss in Columbia when they take on the Tigers. After beating the top-ranked team in the country on Saturday, the Kentucky Wildcats are on the road in Columbia (MO) to take on the Missouri Tigers. The Tigers (12-12, 3-9 in the SEC) are coming off a 10-point loss at Ole Miss and are starving for a signature win in what’s becoming a lost season. And as you know, Kentucky is everybody’s Super Bowl, so somebody is bound to go off against the Wildcats. At the beginning of the season, everyone would’ve bet it would be Jontay Porter. But after his...

Rebuilding the DL a priority for Texas in spring practice

The Longhorns lost all three starting defensive linemen to graduation and must find the right pieces to improve. Graduation hit the Texas Longhorns hard. The Longhorns lost eight starters on defense, including all three of its starters along the defensive line. As they go, they take with them 81 career starts, 361 career tackles, 76 career tackles for loss, and 33 career sacks with them. As Texas looks to reload defensively and build off of the momentum from a Sugar Bowl win over the Georgia Bulldogs, they have to start in the trenches to get the job done. One of the most underrated...

Marsh’s Mailbag: David Feeley, faces of recruiting class, offensive line, Jaelan Phillips and more.

What’s the impact of David Feeley been? Who’s the face of the 2019 recruiting class, and more Miami questions. What kind of impact is new strength and conditioning coach David Feely going to have? For great teams, you see pretty clearly who is the strongest and best conditioned. David Feely comes over from Temple after Manny Diaz snagged him up, and you already notice the change of energy that he brings to the Canes workouts. In his previous two coaching stints at Temple and South Carolina, both programs saw winning seasons and bowl appearances each year he was there. Looking at these...

Will The U ever truly be back?

Since Larry Coker left the Hurricanes, the burning question has been if the Hurricanes can return to their glory days. In the early part of the 21st century, the Miami Hurricanes were the premier college football program. From 2000 to the end of Larry Coker’s tenure as the Hurricanes’ head coach, Miami posted a record of 71-16 with one national championship (2001) and a 5-2 record in bowl games. Since then, the Hurricanes have experienced a peculiar fall from grace. Since Randy Shannon took over in 2006, the Canes have just one bowl win (2016 Russell Athletic) and a 90-63 record. In...

S&P+ Breakdown of Alabama football’s conference schedule

What if I told you Alabama’s schedule is actually REALLY tough? The first S&P+ projections dropped this week. As expected, Alabama is No. 1. The more interesting examination is to take a closer peek at Alabama’s SOS, which has already been derided. Yesterday broke down Alabama’s non-conference schedule. And, while it doesn’t have a Texas or a Penn State on it, 2019 is nevertheless decent — two bowl teams on the card. Where the critcism will come (and probably somewhat warranted) is that when it’s bad, it’s really bad: including a below-average FCS foe and the woeful,...

So it would stand to reason that he’s literally “daddy’s boy” by way of... facts. Now, depending on who your dad is, the value of being “daddy’s boy” can probably vary. But for Buddy, the moniker has earned him a free ride to Syracuse University, Super Bowl tickets, countless trips to the NCAA Tournament from the time he was a small child, and much more. It’s also earned him the taunts of...
