Syracuse Football: The Twelve Days of SU Football Part 3
This is a four-part series by our Staff Writer, Paul A Esden Sr. If you missed any previous parts you can see them here. What does 2017 hold?
On the seventh day of Christmas my true team gave to me a top twenty-five recruiting class. I know I know, it is hard to recruit players to come spend the ‘Glory Days’ in central NY. Cold, snow and the Orange has not done too well over the past few seasons.
However Cuse did pretty well with the latest recruiting class ranking 51st in the nation. This was ahead of some quality teams: Stanford, Purdue and Texas to name a few. So I am hopeful that with the combination of Version 2.0 of Orange is the New Fast and our Heisman hopeful Eric Dungey we will be looking at an awesome recruiting class next year.
On the eighth day of Christmas my true team gave to me a diamond in the rough. In short I am looking for the next Amba Etta-Tawo. When Amba elected to transfer to Syracuse there wasn’t much fanfare. A transfer from Maryland that frankly had fourth string receiver written all over him.
However with a little pixie dust from Santa (Dino) he transformed into the first All-American at Syracuse since Dwight Freeney, breaking all the Orange’s single-season reception records along the way. So this is a shout out to all the under appreciated, low on the depth chart receivers that want a chance to excel … hop on The New Fast next stop a bro hug from Goodell on a May date to be named later.
On the ninth day of Christmas my true team gave to me patience. This is both for the students,

fans, and the Athletic department. Rome wasn’t built in a day. I fully understand we haven’t been too successful in the win-loss column lately but anyone that watched the games this year can’t say when the game was over that they were excited by what they saw. Anyone who watched the highest scoring games in college football history against Pittsburgh and said they were bored better pick up bungee jumping.
