Yes, the new lighting inside the Carrier Dome sure flashes things up for the pregame ceremonies, I thought just before the start of the season finale between the Syracuse Orange and Pittsburgh Panthers on Saturday night.
Then as I looked around minutes before game time and noted all those empty seats, I noted that some things stay the same.
Syracuse football still needs to win over hearts, minds and wallets. Box score attendance for the 31-14 loss: 27,939. Looked like less to me. Can’t really pretty that up.
