Former Iggy Winner. I used to be somebody special

A simple combination of bread, cheese, and a little butter has become one of the greatest comfort foods ever created: the grilled cheese sandwich! Cheese and bread have been being combined since the ancient Romans, but it wasn't until the twentieth century that the grilled cheese sandwich began to take shape.
Two factors set the stage for the rise of grilled cheese: inexpensive processed cheese and sliced bread. James L. Kraft opened his first cheese plant in 1914 in Illinois. The following year he invented pasteurized cheese—cheap processed cheese that wouldn't spoil when it was being transported long distances. Shortly thereafter, in the late 1920s, sliced bread came on the market. The sandwiches made at this time often had names like "toasted cheese" and "melted cheese." Recipes had grated cheese with a binder such as salad dressing, white sauce, or mustard.
Syracuse Football set for Spring Showcase with new starting quarterback (cnycentral.com; Tamurian)
For the first time since 2013, Syracuse doesn't return its incumbent starting quarterback.
You could even put an asterisk by that year, because Terrel Hunt was hurt on the game's first possession leading to the Eric Dungey era on the SU Hill.
In 2019, Tommy DeVito takes the reins from a graduating Dungey and is set to show his progress in year three on campus and his second seeing playing action.
"I think it was important for me to be able to get on the field and really experience the whole atmosphere, especially in the Florida State game, you know, that was a pretty rowdy game, and North Carolina and the games before that, so for me to be able to go in and get my feet wet, have some experience for when the fall comes, I think that was very important to myself" DeVito says.

Clemson Football: Which 2020 recruits do the Tigers currently lead for? (rubbingtherock.com; Spencer)
The 2020 Clemson football recruiting class could be one of the best in the history of the sport. The Tigers are in prime position with several top targets.
The 2020 Clemson football recruiting class is shaping up to be elite.
The Tigers just gained verbal commitments from Sports’ Composite 4-stars Fred Davis and RJ Mickens. With the commitment of those two guys, Clemson football now has 11 commitments in the 2020 class, all of which are 4-stars.
Clemson is currently ranked second in the nation in the Sports’ Composite Rankings behind Alabama, and the Tigers have three less commitments than the Crimson Tide.
Interestingly enough, Alabama’s average star-rating is 92.11, but Clemson’s is a nation-leading 94.73.
As we head into the thick of April, here’s a list of the top remaining targets for Clemson football in 2020 and who the Tigers currently lead for.

Some Syracuse lawmakers call Fowler High School stadium ‘bad investment’ (PS; Mulder)
Some Syracuse Common Councilors are skeptical about a plan to build a $20 million athletic complex at Public Service Leadership Academy at Fowler High School and say the city should consider other sites for the project.
Tim Rudd, a councilor-at-large, said at a committee meeting today he’s concerned because there is peat and contamination under part of the land where the city school district wants to build the project. He fears the complex could sink. Some of the school’s walls began cracking in the 1980s as the building sank.
Rudd suggested the district consider other locations such as Burnet Park, the former Syracuse Developmental Center or nearby parcels where there are currently houses.
“It may not make sense to continue on this path,” said Rudd, who chairs the council’s finance, taxation and assessment committee. “It’s a bad investment.”
Councilors Khalid Bey and Bryn Lovejoy Grinnell also voiced concerns about the proposal.
“We don’t want to be back here in the not-too-distant future with some problems,” Bey said.
The district has asked the council to approve a resolution that asks the city to borrow up to $20 million to pay for the project. Suzanne Slack, the district’s chief financial officer, said the state has agreed to reimburse the city for most of the project’s cost so the city’s share of the bill would not exceed $400,000.
