While stuck between hoping the rest of the snow vacates itself from my yard ASAP and waiting for Scott Shafer to land Syracuse’s first 2016 verbal commit (it’s recruiting season, baby!), here are some random musings on the madness that is March.
For the second time in three years, Syracuse closed a successful campaign with a Pinstripe Bowl victory, this time running over, through, and around West Virginia for a 38-14 victory at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
Prince-Tyson Gulley and Jerome Smith powered the Orange to 376 yards on the ground as Syracuse captured its second Pinstripe Bowl in two years, defeating West Virginia, 38-14, on a blustery, snowy day at Yankee Stadium.
In its last three games, Syracuse has averaged 38 points a game, while West Virginia finished 7th in the nation with 41.6 points per game, and was 6th overall in its passing attack at 340.9 yards a game.
Syracuse will have to adjust to the traveling conditions as they enter a new conference in the 2013-14 season, West Virginia football players said during the Pinstripe Bowl media day earlier this week.
