With former Syracuse coach Doug Marrone having great success in the NFL, it got us thinking, if Marrone had stayed at SU, where would the Orange be today?
Paul A. Esden Jr. (@BoyGreen25):
“This is a great question. Since the good ole Marrone days the Orange have gone through Scott Shafer (yikes) and Dino Babers (kind of yikes). Shafer was awful and his vernacular was filled with overused coaching cliches. While Babers has been more talk than action. Although several Orange fans hold out hope that the two upsets (No. 17 Virginia Tech and No. 2 Clemson) are a sign of things to come. While Marrone was hot and cold during his four-year tenure. Bad season (4-8), good season (8-5), bad season (5-7), and finished up with a good season (8-5). Although he was clearly headed down the right path. I don’t know about ACC contenders, but I think the floor was a consistent bowl team which is more than I can say for the Shafer/Babers combination.”
