Syracuse.com’s Stephen Bailey calls in to preview the 2019 Syracuse football season with host Wes Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse podcast hosted by SNY.tv. TJO editor in chief Brad Bierman then calls in to chat about the basketball team’s upcoming trip to Italy.
Here are the highlights from the show:
Wesley Cheng: There is more expectation for this Syracuse team than any for at least the last 20 years. They won 10 games last year. FanDuel, for whatever reason, put them at 5.5 wins to start the season. Where do you see them ending at for win total?
Stephen Bailey: This is a team if it avoids injuries in the wrong spots could win 10 games. It’s not that hard to draw it up. If they find a way to beat Clemson, nothing is off the table. But if you suffer an injury or two at the wrong positions, maybe you’re looking at seven or eight wins. I think they’ll go 9-3 and I’ll stick with that. This is easily the softest schedule Dino Babers has faced in his four years on campus. They should be 4-0 non-conference. Florida State should be better this year but not the Florida State of a few years ago. Louisville is in a serious rebuild. The ACC Atlantic isn’t what it was a few years ago. The opportunity is there for them to put together another very successful season.
