Welcome to International Tuba Day!

As listed in Chases Annual Events, International Tuba Day was created to recognize tubists in musical organizations around the world who have to go through the hassle of handling a tuba. What hassles do tubists have? Tuba players obviously have hassles due to the size and weight of their instruments, but what is actually more of a hassle for tuba players is the prevalence of stereotyped attitudes among people towards tubists and their role in a musical organization.

Think for a minute: What does the tuba mean to you? Unfortunately, many non-tuba players think of the tuba as just being one of those big, loud instruments that go "oompah" in the back of parades - having no real importance and being easy to play - they're just there to look nice. As for tuba players, many people view them in the old stereotyped way: they have no real musical talent, no personality, just big, fat bodies with puffy cheeks and powerful lungs.

JUCO OL Savion Herring Discusses Syracuse Official Visit, Decision Timeframe (SI; McAllister)

Junior college offensive lineman Savion Herring has seen his recruitment ramp up recently and he has started taking visits. The former Irvington (NJ) High standout committed to Cincinnati during the 2019 recruiting cycle, but went the junior college route. Last weekend, Herring was on the Syracuse campus for an official visit.

"We took yours around the whole facility," Herring said. "Sat with a few of the coaches. The head coach, offensive coordinator, offensive line coach, wide receivers coach, pretty much just offense. They shared information on their careers, what they've done, what they've accomplished, their goals for this season, everything like that. They want to win, they want to build a team where everybody holds each other accountable. There's some good things on."

One of the highlights of the trip was being able to spend time with the Syracuse coaching staff.

"It was great, honestly," Herring said. "It seemed like it was family. They really care about the guys they have with them. They care to even help after they go to the NFL or even if they don't go to the NFL, they're there to help. I really liked that. I was big on that."

The Orange coaches expect Herring to come in and be able to compete for a starting spot right away.

"They told me, 'we know you're a guy that can play three positions,'" Herring said. "'Really all five.' They said I've got a pretty good chance at playing center and guard. That's something I'm willing to do. Anything to help the team. That's what they've pretty much said. I'll have a chance to play right away."

Syracuse Football: ‘Cuse enters recruitment of talented 3-star edge rusher (itlh; Adler)

Syracuse football has gotten into the mix for a three-star defensive end in the junior class.

Jordan Mayer, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound prospect in the 2023 cycle, said via Twitter that the Orange coaching staff had recently offered him a scholarship.

On his Twitter page, Mayer says that he’s a multi-positional athlete, suiting up at both tight end and defensive end. Mayer attends Thomas Jefferson High School in Jefferson Hills, Pa.


Most of the main recruiting services rate him as a three-star player in this cycle, and Mayer does possess multiple national rankings in the 2023 class.
Let’s look at the recruitment of Syracuse football 2023 target Jordan Mayer.

His bio on some recruiting Web sites notes that Mayer is from Clairton, Pa., which is part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan region.

In looking at the primary recruiting services, it appears that Mayer holds more than 20 scholarship offers at this juncture, as well as interest from several other college teams.

Besides the Orange, he has received offers from squads including Wisconsin, West Virginia, Boston College, Rutgers, Duke, Vanderbilt, Cincinnati, Buffalo and Temple, among others.

Furthermore, recruiting services say that Mayer is garnering interest from teams such as Penn State, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and Nebraska.

Quarterbacks — 2022 Syracuse Football preview - The Juice Online (the juice; Sears)

After a 5-7 finish to the 2021 season, the Syracuse Orange will be looking to build on the ups of a year that was mostly downs. SU got mostly adequate quarterback play, but a changing of the guard at the position dragged on for too long at the start of the year and undercut the effect of both starters.

Tommy Devito was never really the answer at the position, and it took the coaching staff a bit too long to realize it. When you consider that SU needed just one win in their final three games to reach bowl eligibility- and lost them all- you then look back at the start of the year and wonder had Shrader been given the shot to start from the beginning, maybe some of those early losses could have been flipped around.

The Orange dropped a very winnable game against Rutgers in week 2 still trying to make Devito work, and by the time Syracuse had a huge ACC matchup against Florida State in week 5, Shrader had thrown a grand total of 37 passes. Shrader ended up being a revelation with his legs in that game but it ultimately wasn’t enough, and you have to wonder how comfortably the Orange could have won had he been able to eclipse more than 150 yards passing.

Now with nine games under his belt as a starter, Shrader is the unquestioned QB1 going into 2022 and there doesn’t seem to be much competition for his spot. As it stands here in May, the current Orange quarterback room looks like this:

  1. Garrett Shrader- 6’4” 228 pounds
  2. Justin Lamson- 6’3” 215 pounds
  3. JaCobian Morgan- 6’4” 223 pounds
  4. Dan Villari- 6’4” 237 pounds
  5. Luke MacPhail- 6’4” 217 pounds (PWO)
The first thing you may notice is Dino Babers and his offensive coordinator Robert Anae have a definite body type they’re looking for at the QB position, as all 5 players are at least 6’3” and 215 pounds. Syracuse counts on their signal caller to make plays with their legs whether it be scrambling or designed QB runs, and those guys need big bodies to handle taking hits. The similar make up of all five guys signals to me there may be an increased focus on the designed QB run game this year.

Secondly, I’ve listed the guys in order of how I expect the depth chart to turn out. Shrader is the no-brainer starter, and Justin Lamson seems to be his back-up after he got the nod to take the field first in the recent Spring Game. Lamson played well, going 7-of-10 passing for 151 yards and two touchdowns, notably a 75-yard score to Damien Alford. That kind of performance should lock the number two spot up.

Ranking the Difficulty of SU’s 2022 Opponents – Orange Fizz – Daily Syracuse Recruiting News & Team Coverage (orangefizz.net; Eads)


We are officially under four months away from Syracuse football’s season opener against Louisville. SU enters something of a make or break season with it being year eight under Dino Babers. Conversely, it’s also the start of something new with the new offensive coach staff coming in from Virginia. In any case, the Orange showed signs of life in 2021, now the expectation is a postseason berth. Let’s evaluate the ‘Cuse’s fall slate and rank each game one to twelve based on difficulty.

12. VS. WAGNER (10/1)

11. AT UCONN (9/10)

10. VS. FLORIDA STATE (11/12)

9. VS PURDUE (9/17)

Picking eleven and twelve were pretty self explanatory here. Wagner didn’t win a single game in 2021 and should be heavily overmatched. The Huskies get the benefit of hosting the Orange in Connecticut but that’s about as far as the benefits go. Uconn won one single game in 2021. The Huskies beat Yale, so yeah.

Picking from ten and on was much more difficult because every opponent on SU’s schedule was featured in the top 65 of ESPN’s preseason FPI. FSU is slotted at ten because its a Dome game and the Seminoles are still developing under Mike Norvell. Yeah the Noles have talent but until they have a serious threat under center, they don’t deserve that much respect. Purdue could be the best offense Syracuse plays against in the 315 this season. The Boilermakers can sling it all over the field. SU will need its secondary at its best in this intriguing early season non-con clash.

8. VS. VIRGINIA (9/23)

7. AT PITTSBURGH (11/5)

6. VS. NC STATE (10/15)

5. AT BOSTON COLLEGE (11/26)

A lot of the road games are sandwiched inside the top seven because Syracuse has not been good on the road under Babers, especially not in ACC play. Virginia returns QB Brennan Armstrong and will no doubt be juiced up to battle against its former coaches Robert Anae and Jason Beck. Pittsburgh was definitely a lock for a top five game in terms of degree of difficulty, but then Jordan Addison entered the transfer portal.

Syracuse football needs to worry about winning games not appeasing fans (TNIAAM; Wall)

Yesterday’s announcement that the Syracuse Orange and Penn State Nittany Lions had agreed to renew their football rivalry brought understandable excitement from fans. I recognize that I threw water on the fun and wanted to give more of my perspective while addressing the biggest responses from you in support of the two-game series

Shouldn’t we schedule big-name opponents?

I get that playing Penn State is exciting for Syracuse fans- especially fans who’ve been following the team prior to the 90s when the teams were regular opponents. It’s certainly enjoyable to be in the Dome when it’s full and there is a buzz around the game- not denying that at all. Even though John has moved on, the notion that Syracuse doesn’t help themselves with their scheduling remains. Don’t believe me, well look at this:

Bowl appearances for ACC schools since 2013

Since joining the ACC, Syracuse has the fewest seasons with bowl eligibility. Some of you commented that the ACC isn’t a tough football conference and the Orange aren’t competitive. They have had two seasons where they have been .500 or above in conference play so if you can’t consistently win those games, why are you scheduling tougher opponents out of conference?

‎Locked On Syracuse - Daily Podcast On Syracuse Orange Football & Basketball: Syracuse Football Renews a Rivalry with Penn State and Syracuse Basketball's Class of 2022 Superlatives Continue on Apple Podcasts (apple.com; podcast; Locked on Syracuse)

Syracuse football announced a home and home with Penn State, one of the most historic rivals in program history. Brad Klein explains what that means for SU. Plus, he dips his toes in the ongoing trend of picking the program's best starting five, but takes Melo out of the equation with his own little spin on it. Finally, who is the biggest flirt of the Class of 2022 as the superlative segment continues.

ACC spring football overreactions: Clemson's offense bounces back, Miami gets off to hot start under Cristobal (cbssports.com; Cobb)


Spring football is a process of starting over with new personnel, and in the ACC, there are plenty of on-field changes coming in 2022. Clemson's six-year run of conference titles was snapped in 2021, and the league is getting a hefty infusion of new coaches. As such, the conference has plenty of good storylines to follow entering a new season.

Mario Cristobal replaced Manny Diaz at Miami, Tony Elliott succeeded Bronco Mendenhall at Virginia, Brent Pry replaced Justin Fuente at Virginia Tech and Mike Elko is in for David Cutcliffe at Duke. As for the league's recognizable returning faces, many of them are star quarterbacks with weighty expectations. Wake Forest's Sam Hartman, NC State's Devin Leary, Louisville's Malik Cunningham, Boston College's Phil Jurkovec, Miami's Tyler Van Dyke and Virginia's Brennan Armstrong combine to give the ACC arguably the nation's strongest crop of proven passers.

With Clemson regrouping following a down year by the program's standards, one of the above quarterbacks has a chance to do what Kenny Pickett did with Pittsburgh last season and lead their team past the mighty Tigers to a league title.

While spring games are largely vanilla, let's overreact anyway to what we can expect from ACC teams in 2022.

Boston College

QB Phil Jurkovec is the new Sam Howell: Jurkovec landed in the first round of a recent 2023 NFL Draft mock from CBS colleague Ryan Wilson. He certainly has the tools and ability to do it, but Boston College replaces four starters on its offensive line. Spring practice served as a reminder that Jurkovec will be hard-pressed to maintain that lofty stock in 2022 because of shifting roster dynamics outside his control. Former ACC quarterback Sam Howell of North Carolina dealt with a similar situation last season as his top two receivers and top two running backs departed following a huge 2020 season for the Tar Heels. Howell still got drafted, but in the fifth round instead of the first.

Clemson

A once-stale offense will bounce back: There is a temptation to declare that nothing has improved with Clemson's offense after its sleepy performance in the spring game. With former offensive coordinator Tony Elliott now the head coach at Virginia and the Tigers reeling from a substandard 2021 season, a 2 of 5 passing performance from D.J. Uiagalelei in the spring game could be interpreted as a perilous omen. However, with Uiagalelei getting pushed by freshman Cade Klubnik in the QB battle and the Tigers' getting reps against one of the nation's best defenses, progress is sure to come on offense. Remember: Clemson ranked eighth nationally in total defense last season with only Georgia and Wisconsin allowing fewer yards per play. With a nasty defensive front that includes the likes of Bryan Bresee and Myles Murphy, Clemson's floor as a program remains high. Even if the offense isn't elite, it should be improved enough to get the Tigers back in the ACC Championship Game.

Duke

2022 will be tough to stomach: Duke ranked dead last among the 130 FBS teams last season in total defense, and making significant improvement in Year 1 is going to be tough for coach Mike Elko. The former Texas A&M, Notre Dame and Wake Forest defensive coordinator has three of last season's top four tacklers back, but depth looks like a serious issue and the offense lost stud running back Mataeo Durant to the NFL. Nothing about Duke's situation looks conducive to a quick turnaround.

Florida State

RB Trey Benson will be an impact player: The Oregon transfer tallied 77 yards on seven carries in Florida State's Garnet & Gold game and looked capable of being an impact player in 2022. Once considered a four-star prospect in the 2020 class by 247Sports, Benson redshirted at Oregon as freshman and played sparingly last season. With Jashaun Corbin departed after leading the Seminoles in rushing last season, Benson could become one of the ACC's top transfers in the season ahead. This is the definition of a spring overreaction, but Benson provides Seminoles' fans with something to be excited about.

Georgia Tech

Staff overhaul won't be enough: With Clemson up first on the schedule as a cross-division opponent and nonconference games vs. Georgia, Ole Miss and UCF on the docket, an offensive staff overhaul isn't going to be enough for coach Geoff Collins to gain traction in his fourth season. Landing Chip Long as offensive coordinator is fairly exciting, and new running backs coach Mike Daniels bringing a 1,000-yard back Dylan McDuffie from Buffalo with him should help mitigate the loss of Jahmyr Gibbs to Alabama. But the chasm between the Yellow Jackets and bowl eligibility is too wide to be closed against a schedule this tough.

Louisville

Malik Cunningham is a Heisman sleeper: After compiling nearly 4,000 total yards last season, Cunningham is back for his super-senior season. With loads of experience on the offensive line and some proven playmakers around him, Cunningham could sneak into the Heisman Trophy conversation. If nothing else, he should be able to help the Cardinals break through and build on the promise they showed in 2019 during coach Scott Satterfield's first season.

Miami

The Hurricanes will win the ACC Coastal crown: First-year coach Mario Cristobal did well enough in the transfer portal over the last few months that this team should be able to build off last season's 5-3 ACC mark. The Canes, which return budding star Tyler Van Dyke at quarterback, finished second in the Coastal last season behind Pitt. However, the Panthers are replacing star quarterback Kenny Pickett, most of their offensive staff and (potentially) star receiver Jordan Addison. And there is nothing particularly frightening about the other teams in the division.

North Carolina

Josh Downs will make new QB a star: It won't matter whether Jacolby Criswell or Drake Maye wins North Carolina's starting quarterback job, receiver Josh Downs will make that winner a star in 2022. Downs caught 101 passes for 1,335 yards and eight touchdowns last season. Improving on those numbers will be hard with a new QB, but Downs caught touchdown passes from both in the spring game. That underscores the point here: North Carolina's quarterback will be throwing to one of the sport's best sets of hands, and that quarterback will look good as a result.

NC State

Bring on the expectations: NC State is getting love as a potential top-10 team in some of the way-too-early polls that circulate this time of year. Those expectations seem awfully lofty for a program that has never finished in the top 10, but bring it on! The last time the Wolfpack finished in the top 15 was in 2002 when Philip Rivers was quarterback. Devin Leary is the best QB they've had since then, and there is enough around him for NC State to build off a 9-3 season. Leary threw 35 touchdowns compared to just five interceptions last season. The sport could use a fresh face in the CFP conversation, and NC State could find itself in the mix if things break right at Clemson on Oct. 1.

Pittsburgh

Regression ahead: Regardless of whether or not star receiver Jordan Addison returns after catching 100 passes and winning the Bilentnikoff Award as a sophomore, there is some major regression ahead for Pitt. Expect a team closer to seven wins than the 11-win total posted by last year's ACC champions. The Panthers are fortunate to avoid Clemson, NC State and Wake Forest out of the Atlantic division, but their nonconference slate is tricky with games against West Virginia and Tennessee out of the gate. Then comes a trip to Western Michigan to try and avenge last season's home loss to the Broncos.

Syracuse

Justin Lamson should start at QB: Syracuse ranked 122nd in passing offense last season, failing to reach 2,000 total yards through the air during a 5-7 season. If you flash back to Syracuse's 10-win season in 2018, it had a for more serviceable aerial attack. If the Orange want to reclaim some momentum under seventh-year coach Dino Babers, they should go with Lamson at quarterback. The redshirt freshman made his case by tossing a pair of long touchdowns and finishing 7 of 10 passing for 151 yards in the spring game.

ACC Football: Top 25 2023 NFL Draft Prospects to Watch (athlonsports.com; Kinne)

Headlined by NC State offensive tackle Ikem Ekwonu, who went to the Carolina Panthers with the sixth overall pick, four ACC alums were selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. That trailed only the SEC and the Big Ten for the most number of selections from a conference in this year's opening round.

And next year could be even better. Several ACC stars will get first-round consideration in 2023 including a slew of quarterbacks that rank among the nation's best. Here are 25 players (in alphabetical order) that will be on the radar of NFL teams in 2023.

Note: Pittsburgh wide receiver Jordan Addison would have made this list but he entered the transfer portal on May 3 and may end up at another school, outside of the ACC.

Yasir Abdullah, LB, Louisville (Sr., 6-1, 235)

First-round selection Jermaine Johnson II of Florida State led the ACC in tackles for lost yardage and sacks last season. Second in both categories was Abdullah. A player that has improved each season could see his draft stock soar in 2022.

Deslin Alexandre, DE, Pittsburgh (Sr., 6-4, 280)

On lines that featured Jalen Twyman and Habakkuk Baldanado, Alexandre has never stood out as the primary threat. What Alexandre possesses is the versatility to play inside and out along with a consistency that has been on display for four years.

Brennan Armstrong, QB, Virginia (Sr., 6-2, 212)

The lefty from Shelby, Ohio, had a huge 2021 and considered putting his name into this year's draft. But another year in Charlottesville was probably the right decision, as Armstrong can climb up the quarterback boards with another strong season.

Habakkuk Baldanado, DE, Pittsburgh (Sr., 6-5, 255)

A native of Rome, Italy, Baldonado needed some time to develop. But develop he did in 2021, registering 12 tackles for a loss and nine sacks while earning second-team all-league honors.

Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson (Jr., 6-5, 300)

Despite playing only four games as a sophomore, Bresee is projected as a high first-round 2023 pick at this early stage. One of the top players in the recruiting class of 2020, the Damascus, Maryland, product has the size, strength, and quickness NFL teams love in a defensive tackle.

Kameron Butler, DE, Virginia (Sr., 6-3, 250)

After a sensational career at Miami (Ohio), where he posted a pair of seasons with double-digit tackles for a loss, Butler has transferred to Virginia. If he can match that production in the ACC, NFL scouts will take notice.

Tyler Davis, DT, Clemson (Sr., 6-2, 300)

If Davis had been able to stay on the field, he probably would have been in this year's draft. But injuries have been a problem and he has to prove that he is durable enough to warrant a first-round selection.

Akeem Dent, S, Florida State (Sr., 6-1, 196)

After a shift from corner to safety, it took Dent a while to adjust. But that happened in 2021 and he finds himself as a possible first-round selection next spring.

Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina (Jr., 5-10, 171)

When a team selects a wide receiver early in the draft, it's usually a tall, outside target. That is not Downs, but his size should not scare anyone. His quickness, smarts, and ball-catching ability make him a prototypical NFL slot receiver.

Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College (Sr., 5-10, 172)

Size-wise, Josh Downs and Flowers are almost identical and they both are their team's top targets. But they do it in different ways. Flowers catches fewer balls but at more than 16 yards per reception during his career, he presents more of a big-play threat.

Tony Grimes, CB, North Carolina (Jr., 6-1, 197)

Grimes showed a lot of promise as a freshman in 2020 and responded with nine pass breakups in 2021. Because he re-classified into the 2020 class coming out of high school, he is young for his class and needs development in 2022 to be ready for the next level.

K.J. Henry, DE, Clemson (Sr., 6-4, 260)

Both Henry and fellow Clemson defensive end Xavier Thomas are in the same boat. Both could have declared for the 2022 NFL Draft and been mid- to late-round selections. But both decided to return to Clemson for another year. Henry, while not possessing as much upside as Thomas, has been the more consistent of the two based on his availability.

Phil Jurkovec, QB, Boston College (Sr., 6-5, 214)

His throwing motion is not textbook and his accuracy could be better. But Jurkovec is a big, strong, mobile quarterback that can make plays. Not expected back in 2021 after injuring his hand earlier in the season, Jurkovec showed his competitiveness by playing in the Eagles' final four contests.

Devin Leary, QB, NC State (Sr., 6-1, 212)

He may not be as heralded as some of the other quarterbacks in a conference loaded with star passers, but Leary's numbers stacked up with the best in the ACC last fall. His 35:5 touchdown-to-interception ratio stands out by itself and only increases his appeal as a potential pro prospect.

Will Mallory, TE, Miami (Sr., 6-5, 245)

When it comes to the Hurricanes' tight end, results have lagged a bit behind expectations. But he has one more season to show his worth and with Tyler Van Dyke throwing the ball and receivers Charleston Rambo and Mike Harley moving on, Mallory should have plenty of opportunities.

Jordan McFadden, OG, Clemson (Sr., 6-2, 310)

A second-team All-ACC selection in 2021 as a tackle, McFadden's size makes him more of a guard prospect in the NFL. He has played in 42 games during his Clemson career and was on the field for more snaps than any Tiger in 2021.

Myles Murphy, DE, Clemson (Jr., 6-5, 275)

Murphy came to Clemson as a top-five overall recruit and he has not disappointed. In two seasons, he has 25 tackles for lost yardage and 12 sacks. Equally adept against the run and pass, Murphy should hear his name called early in next year's draft.

Zion Nelson, OT, Miami (Sr., 6-5, 316)

A true left tackle, Nelson has the size and athleticism to excel at that position. He is still a bit of a raw prospect despite starting for the Hurricanes since his freshman year and definitely needs some refinement, but his physical tools cannot be taught. A strong campaign this fall could lead to a first-round selection.

Robert Scott, OT, Florida State (Jr., 6-5, 315)

Scott has started 18 games at Florida State, but this is still more of a projection based on what could happen rather than what he has accomplished. Scott didn't even make the honorable mention list among the All-ACC teams in 2021, but his frame and movement skills could push him up many draft boards.

Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson (Jr., 6-3, 230)

Like Bryan Bresee and Myles Murphy, Simpson was a member of Clemson's highly regarded 2020 recruiting class that made an impact immediately and will not only be eligible for the 2023 NFL Draft, but may go in the first round. Last season, the Charlotte product was second on the team in tackles for lost yardage behind Murphy.

Tyrique Stevenson, CB, Miami (Sr., 6-0, 214)

Stevenson spent two years as mostly a reserve at Georgia before transferring to Miami. He earned honorable mention All-ACC recognition last season and may have been drafted late this year if he had entered his name. Now he has an opportunity to really boost his draft stock with a strong season.

Sean Tucker, RB, Syracuse (Jr., 5-10, 209)

Averaging 125 yards per game, Tucker finished fourth nationally in rushing and also caught 20 passes for the Cuse. The running back position is not valued as highly as it once was but for teams that need a ball carrier, Tucker will be a top choice.

Most Delusional Fanbase? Easy! (RX; HM)

Most Delusional Fanbase? Easy!

I've met some delusional College Football fans in my time, but I'd have to say the MOST delusional fanbase has to be the South Carolina Gamecocks. Despite accomplishing pretty much nothing in the entire history of their program, they still believe that this year is going to be THE YEAR - and that's everyoff-season. I'm especially amazed at how many of them talk trash about their in-state rivals, the Clemson Tigers, despite getting blasted by them most years.

Here's a look at the series results since 1991 (the year the Gamecocks joined the SEC):

Syracuse University finished replacing the Carrier Dome roof in September 2020, part of a $118 million stadium upgrade. The iconic building will soon have a new name with JMA Wireless reportedly buying the naming rights.

JMA? Carrier? Our House? For now, SU's most famous building doesn’t have a name (PS; $; Carlson)

The most famous building in Syracuse doesn’t have a name.

At least not for the moment.

Syracuse University’s naming rights agreement with Carrier expired on May 1. A deal with local company JMA Wireless is reportedly in the works but has not been announced.

For now then, the building that puts Central New York on the national map doesn’t have a formal title, a momentary oddity in the Dome’s long story.

On Syracuse University’s news website, the building is called the stadium. On the school’s athletics website, it’s generally called the Dome. On a digital announcement for an upcoming football game against Penn State, SU dubbed it “Our House.”



Syracuse has scheduled a home-and-home series with Penn State, the Orange's second-most frequently played opponent in program history.

Details: Syracuse and Penn State Renew Series - Syracuse University Athletics pic.twitter.com/WPq5jPvm2U
— Syracuse Football (@CuseFootball) May 4, 2022

The school has not yet pulled off the Carrier Dome lettering that has been attached to the side of the building for decades.

Some secondary ticket websites continue to use Carrier Dome on their listings. Others have jumped out ahead of the school and already begun selling tickets for upcoming events in the JMA Wireless Dome. Twitter locations already allows you to send out observations from the JMA Wireless Dome.

Despite that, Syracuse University and JMA Wireless have declined to discuss the building’s naming rights over more than two weeks since the sports business website Sportico reported that the school’s break-up with Carrier had been finalized and that the local company would be installed as a new partner.

The school said it plans to share news about the building’s name soon. In the meantime, it has punted on assigning the building a temporary title.

“As of May 1, the previous naming rights concluded,” Syracuse Senior Associate Vice President for Communications Sarah Scalese said, when asked the Dome’s current name. “We look forward to sharing more news about the stadium soon.”
