Paulus can only help struggling Syracuse
Most highly recruited high school athletes excel in more than one sport. But except for a chosen few -- Dave Winfield and Ronald Curry come immediately to mind -- a choice eventually has to be made, and it's usually irrevocable. Four years ago, Greg Paulus surprised a...

Marrone begins rearranging 2009 Orange
This is Doug Marrone's "gimme" season, his honeymoon. Basically, he is sitting down at the table to play with Greg Robinson's cards -- and if he happens to pull a freshman ace or two out of his sleeve, so much the better. There must have been a temptation, then, for th...

Syracuse: Marrone’s Dirty Dozen, plus two
Hired in December, new Syracuse football coach Doug Marrone came to the recruiting trail late, but he hit it running. Call it "recruiting with an attitude." For openers, Marrone raised some eyebrows when he told four of previous coach Greg Robinson's recruits that he d...

Be merciful, Syracuse: Gong G-rob
Should Syracuse pull the plug on Greg Robinson at this point in the season, with five games left to play? In many respects, it would be the best thing for all concerned. It's not as if Robinson hasn't been given a chance -- this is his fourth season, and the Orange is...

Some thoughts on life after Greg Robinson
By this time, we all know that Syracuse University's Greg Robinson is a dead man coaching. Robinson was told in no uncertain terms (OK, maybe they were a little uncertain) by athletic director Darryl Gross that he would be gone after this season if the Orange failed to...

Will Ernie Davis help Orange upset Northwestern?

Ten reasons Syracuse will be better this season
Coming off a terrible season, here are 10 reasons why things will get better for Syracuse in 2008. 1. Things can't get any worse. It might not be true to call the 2007 Syracuse team the most inept in Big East history -- if you'll recall, Rutgers and Temple were pretty...

Syracuse scrambles, shuffles to ease wideout crisis
It is always better to give than to receive -- unless, of course, you're a football team and want to have a passing game. Syracuse University has, by all accounts, a decent quarterback in Andrew Robinson (although it was sometimes hard to tell last year while he was be...

Syracuse wideouts: It’s academic
Trust us on this -- Deandre Preaster is worth writing about twice -- at least for Syracuse fans. He and hometown recruit Marcus Sales are supposed to be the best pair of wide receivers signed by the Orange in years, and this is a school with a wide receiver tradition (M...

DeAndre Preaster: From three stars to Division III
A few months ago, Syracuse University was afraid of losing DeAndre Preaster to Pitt, West Virginia or some other rival Division I-A football program. Or maybe even to a Division I basketball program, considering the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Preaster played both sports equall...

Orange D-line starter joins Williams an an academic casualty
Syracuse University's football team, which surrendered 54 sacks in 2007 season, has already suffered two in 2008. Of course, Mike Williams and Brandon Gilbeaux weren't sacked by the opposition, but by the university itself. A few weeks after star wide receiver Williams...

Orange picks up second future commitment
Leavander Jones' recent verbal commitment to the Syracuse University football team was a gamble, both for the Orange and Jones. But that only makes sense, considering Jones plays his high school ball in Atlantic City. The best thing about the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Jones...

Academic casualty Williams leaves a hole in Syracuse offense
Just like that, the lone bright spot in the Syracuse University offense has turned into a black hole. Monday, the Syracuse Post-Standard reported that junior wide receiver Mike Williams, who scored nearly half of the Orange touchdowns in 2007, had left school because o...

Scouts like “new” Jameel McClain
The turnout at Syracuse University's Pro Day on March 18 said a lot about the Orange's 2007 season. Only a handful of teams sent representatives, including the Steelers, Patriots, Lions, Jets and Colts, and they were joined by scouts from the Arena Football League and t...

A-Rob confronts the death spiral
(Second in a series of previews on Big East teams). Like the elderly lady in the old commercial, the Syracuse Universty football team has fallen, and it can't get up. It was just nine years ago when only a controversial late pass interference call against Tennessee ke...

Syracuse recruits built for speed
This is the first in a series on Big East recruiting. National signing day just happened to coincide with the worst blizzard of the season in Upstate New York, but now it's too late for Syracuse University's four Florida recruits and lone Californian to change their mi...

Orange alert: Is the worst over for SU? (Part I)
This is the first installment of a series covering teams that are possibly on the rebound: When the Syracuse University football team's offensive coordinator was charged with driving under the influence recently, a cynic might have said: "That explains a lot." After a...

Waiting for Delone at Syracuse
It's rare that Syracuse University goes into a football season without a designated starting running back. Of course, it's rare that the Orange finishes 1-11. In fact, 2005 was the first time. And now, with Damian Rhodes having departed, the tailback position is wide...

Orange had red faces in ‘05
Last year at this time, optimism was blooming like spring flowers around the Syracuse Orange football program. There was no question that changes had to be made after the 2004 season. The team had settled into mediocrity under Paul Pasqualoni, and a 51-14 loss to Geor...
