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.
