Syracuse.com football beat writer Stephen Bailey calls in to talk about the 2018 Orange football season with host Wes Cheng. The Juice Online’s Brad Bierman then calls in to give his predictions on this season.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wes Cheng: Do you see Syracuse making a bowl game?

Stephen Bailey: I’ve been going back and forth between 5-7 and 6-6 all offseason. You hear everyone talking about who’s going to be god and all these good things are happening. It’s just natural being. It’s a part of being around any team and my win projection bumps up at that point. I think it’s going to be close. I’ll say 6-6. I think Dino’s history of success at Eastern Illinois and Bowling Green causes me to lean that way a little bit. It’s going to come down to November again. It’s going to come down to how healthy they are. So I’ll say 6-6 but they’ve got their work cut out for them for sure.
