Stephen Bailey recently moved over to 247 Sports from his previous position at the Post-Standard, and we chatted with him to find out more about his new position. Stephen will be expanding his recruiting repertoire at his new post, and also we’ll see him in basketball coverage.

Stephen also breaks down the affect of what appears to be a lost season on Syracuse football recruiting. The 1-4 start hasn’t helped, and Dino Babers and staff will need to pivot to hanging on to their recruits ahead of the early signing period in December.

While we’re on the topic of the brutal start, is Dino on the hot seat? A lot of things would need to happen for that to take place, and it’s important for a Syracuse fan not to come from the lens of an emotionally damaging loss to Liberty over the weekend.

I pose the same ‘hot seat’ question to editor in chief Brad Bierman, who also calls it premature given the unusual 2020 COVID year and the rash of injuries that have affected Syracuse more than other schools. Still, it’s hard not to feel the sting from losing to a team that had, prior to this weekend, never toppled a Power 5 team.

Brad closes the show by talking about families being able to come to the Carrier Dome on a limited basis, while I talk about Syracuse alum Chandler Jones, who underwent season ending surgery to repair a torn bicep.
