With Syracuse University’s football season done with a record of 5-7 after Saturday’s 31-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Panthers, it’s the time for the higher-ups to answer questions.
Yes, they brought back coach Dino Babers even though he has just that one 10-win season on his plus-side, and five losing seasons now to go with it. Instead they let go the offensive coordinator and two other assistants for those fans clamoring for a dismissal. Will Babers and his new hires be able to turn this program around?
Will the good players, most particularly very special running back Sean Tucker, return for next season, or enter that so-easy transfer portal and further deflate fans’ hopes?
And as these organizational puzzle pieces play out, my dear wife Karen and I will decide if we will or will not come back for another year of season ticket purchasing.
To be continued.
