2018 Syracuse Orange Predictions: Team Strengths
Dungey Under Center: Even though the Orange don’t win a ton of games people still tune into games for one reason, to watch Eric Dungey.
When healthy Dungey is one of the most exciting quarterbacks in the country, and can hit a homerun pass at anytime to anyone.
He is losing his two best receivers from last year, but with his arm, it doesn’t really matter who he has deep, he will have success.
At times his accuracy has struggled, and that needs to change in this game. If he can do that, it’s going to be a special season.
Dino Barber: Dino Barbers has given a new outlook to Syraucse Football and although the wins haven’t come, he has still shown glimpses of how special he is going to be.
The players love playing for him, and he can relate to them.
2018 Syracuse Orange Predictions: Team Weaknesses
O Line Issues: Eric Dungey has really good feet, and the Orange pass a lot, but the offensive line needs to be better.
So many times last year Dungey was running for his life, and that can’t be the case again this year. If he can set his feet more and throw that will be really good for the Orange and Dungey for success.
If the offensive line struggles again this year, Dungey will once again be running for his life, and the Orange might lose an extra game or two because of it.
The defense as a whole: There really isn’t much positive about the defense last year, and that needs to change.
They were the worst team in the ACC and it was because of the struggles all over the field. The run and pass defense were both terrible and although it’s expected to be better it’s going to need to take some huge steps forward.
Syracuse Orange Prediction: 7-5
This is going to be the year, that the Orange take that next step forward and get back to the bowl game, and keep Barbers job for another year.
The quarterback play is going to be good, and the defense is going to be better this year, and that will lead to seven wins.
