Finding fun on the SU hill

Walking up the hill toward the Carrier Dome for any Syracuse University sporting event, Crouse College always stands out. The Castle, it could be called. Taking that walk for a game last month, my dear wife Karen and I spotted some kids stamping the big hill around the building as their own. They were on…

Really, Let’s Go Orange

As far as I’m concerned, the Syracuse Orange did one thing extremely right for the last home game seven days ago now in the Carrier Dome against the Florida State Seminoles.

A Funky Thanksgiving to all

Orange Out to Orange, ouch

After Syracuse handily one its first game of this 2016 college football season, first-year coach Dino Babers asked all fans to wear the home squad’s name color for Saturday’s game against Atlantic Coast Conference rival Louisville. By goodness, after wearing blue jerseys against the Raiders in game one, even the home team obliged by wearing…

Orange you glad Syracuse can play fast?

Dino Babers promised fast this Syracuse Orange football season. So far, so quick. The home opener last Friday night in the Carrier Dome left the Colgate Raiders with spinning heads. Well, after the Football Championship Subdivision squad from over Hamilton way struck first for a 7-0 lead, anyway. Syracuse sophomore quarterback Eric Dungey and the…
