Syracuse football picked to finish 6th in ACC Atlantic Division

A common line of questioning posed to the Syracuse Orange last week at ACC media days centered around the lack of respect it sees in the conference.

Syracuse shares how the football scheduling sausage gets made

For as long as I’ve been around this corner of the internet, Syracuse Orange football scheduling has been a bit of an issue.

Is Syracuse’s Erv Philips the ACC’s next breakout star?
