Sal Constantino, the head coach at Niagara Falls High School, said Friday that Flynn, who played at Syracuse University from 2007 to 2009, has signed to play for the Sichuan Blue Whales in China's professional basketball league. Flynn's decision to head to China was first reported on twitter by @HomeBaseBuffalo.
Harris, a 6-3 wing, signed to play for SLUC Nancy in France's Pro A league in August, Niagara Falls High School coach Sal Constantino said Friday. The European basketball website eurobasket.com lists Harris as a starter with the SLUC Nancy Couguars.
There was a quarterback competition during summer camp between Devin Powell and Nick Montana that Montana ultimately won. Montana, son of legendary Hall of Fame quarterback Joe, has been solid so far, throwing for 702 yards and seven touchdowns to just two interceptions.
The Orlando Sentinel reported that Joseph along with three other free agents would join the Magic when the team opens its preseason training camp on Oct. 1.
The offense has only come in flashes for Syracuse.
"This place is full and it's so great to see," said Thomas, who found his father on Saturday, attempted CPR and somehow remained steadier through his eulogy than the majority of those in attendance. "It tells me that everyone cares and that my dad touched so many people."
What kind of offense does Nick Montana run at Tulane? Will Cairo Santos play? Which Tulane wide receiver is the "best kept secret in college football at his position?" Why do players on the Tulane defense keep getting suspended?
For the first three weeks, all we offered was glory, honor, bragging rights and not much else. Now we offer a $50 gift certificate to the Genesee Grande Hotel to the person who picks the winner and the score closest to the actual final score. Tiebrakers will be determined by the person who is closest to the announced attendance.
Terrel Hunt wanted a Borkowski Drawing. He got one.
NCAA rules limit Football Bowl Subdivision schools to nine assistant coaches and four graduate assistant coaches. Some schools hire a separate special teams coach, but many programs appoint one of their assistant coaches to be in charge of the overall operation while other coaches on staff assist on various special teams units.
"I know the student-athletes were extremely excited last week with the new pants, we'll have to see what they come up with this week — after all this is about them. "If it excites those young men who have made Syracuse their choice, and are putting the blood, sweat and tears into building the program — then it excites us."'
If you are a Syracuse University football fan scanning the radio airwaves or flipping the television channels looking for analysis of the Orange, you have never had more choices.
Don’t expect a Syracuse blowout on Saturday. The Green Wave isn’t great, but it ain’t too shabby, either. A win is all the Orange needs to keep its dream at a bowl appearance alive.
Grant is probably the best player on Tulane. Right now he’s really quick. He cuts in and out of his breaks ridiculously fast. Teams are having to double cover him to be able to stop him. Right now the deep ball is doing really well, especially with Montana.
Prediction time: Syracuse wins 37-20. Hunt will prove he is the quarterback of this team. He will prove how he worked on communication with receivers during practice and how that gives the entire offense the confidence to work effectively with Hunt as the quarterback.
Geno Smith enjoyed a terrific college career at West Virginia, but he struggled mightily against one school in particular -- Syracuse, coached by Doug Marrone. Yes, it's the same Doug Marrone who coaches the Buffalo Bills, whom the Jets face Sunday.
