Syracuse football legend Brendan Carney calls in to preview the 2019 Orange football season with host Wes Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse podcast hosted by TJO editor in chief Brad Bierman then calls in to chat about the basketball team’s perfect 4-0 exhibition trip to Italy.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wesley Cheng: Let’s talk about the 2019 Syracuse football team as a whole. They lose quarterback Eric Dungey. They lose both of their starting linebackers. Three starters from the offensive line and some depth on the defensive line. Do you think Syracuse can win another 10 games and maybe challenge Clemson for the ACC title this year?

Brendan Carney: I think this team has the chemistry to make this another great season. Regarding what we’ve lost, when you look like a program like Clemson, there’s no drop off in talent from year to year. That’s one of the main ingredients in being consistently good and not occasionally great, which is what Coach Babers talk about. Babers and his staff have done a great job of recruiting and developing depth in the last few years. I think these young guys can step up and perform at a high level. I think if you look in the ACC after Clemson, it’s everyone else. There’s a solid opportunity for Syracuse to be that next team that everyone’s talking about. They really need to drown out all of the noise around them and executing one game at a time.
