Good morning, welcome to Thursday, its hard to believe that the New York State Fair opens today, the summer is heading out the door, let's get to some links before it disappears.
In Syracuse football news, true freshman wide receiver Marcus Sales is showing progress, as he looks to make an impact this year. We wish Marcus nothing but the best and hope he has a Mike Williams-like freshman year, but a wide receiver wearing 5......it's just weird. Other topics included in the link above include a video report on Doug Hogue, a slideshow on Dan Conley and the linebackers, and Orange great John Mackey has been hospitalized.
ESPN says Arthur Jones is a bright light for SU - we couldn't agree more, the man is a beast.

Tony Fiammetta is relishing his time in the spotlight. He's a player I'm really interested in this season, will he be utilized? Will he produce? He certainly is ready physically.
More coverage of the fiasco that is the early screenings of The Express.

And finally, one more note about our new shirts. Yesterday Sean over at TNIAAM did this post on our new gear. From there, Matt at HoyaSuxa suggested we add the schedule to the back of the shirt. Since it was such a great idea, I quickly added it and it's now for sale here. I'd like to thank Matt for the idea and Nick for buying the first one. ....and if SU miraculously turns around their fortunes this year, it can easily be converted to a Greg Robinson Redemption Tour.
