The Juice Online: You covered the Syracuse football game on Saturday, what were your initial impressions?

Chris Carlson: Spring games are always kinda tough because you’re going to have one team that wins, one team that loses, someone who looks good, someone who looks questionable. But the big question for Syracuse heading into this season based on how last year went was the offense. How much better was the offense going to be in year two of George McDonald and Terrel Hunt leading the way. I think you saw some positive signs there. You have to take everything with a grain of salt, Syracuse’s defensive backs in particular were a bit injured and a little depleted, but I think you saw some positive signs that they could be better and build off last season and that Texas Bowl win.
