Gregory returns to starting role

Steve Gregory
He was the starter last year and did a decent job. He also was suspended last year for PEDs and somehow stayed away from the wrath of AJ Smith. He is better at coverage than Mr. Glass, but he will not bring the run support or the BOOM like Mr. Glass could have. He is probably our best option right now, but some fans just want to see something new.

Steve Gregory will be the Chargers' starting strong safety going forward. Bob Sanders (knee) is predictably done for the year. Gregory played every snap against the Chiefs last week, recording five tackles

Nice to see we are in it with Logan. Hasn't it been rumored that UConn is a major player here? Would love to see Abner in Orange.
 
Scott Vallone - “But if both teams are winning, they are probably on the same level as far as tradition and appeal.”

Gotta give Schiano some credit. For ANYONE to say this, especially someone that allegedly grew up a Syracuse fan, is amazing to me. If Vallone took the word "tradition" out of the above sentence, it would make sense to me. It would be an individual's subjective opinion as to the appeal of either school. However, when you put the word "tradition" in that sentence, you've added an objective term (for all intents and purposes). There is no frickin' way Rutgers is even in the same stratosphere as Syracuse when it comes to football tradition. No frickin' way. If you want to define the word "tradition" as something that only includes the last six years - which is a complete bastardization of the word - I suppose. But when your claim to fame is playing the first ever college football game 100+ years ago, doing absolutely NOTHING for the next 100 years, then having a modicum of success with best ever 2nd/3rd place finishes in the Big East and glorious bowl games in Toronto (I think), Houston etc. defines a football program that is not worthy of a second sentence beyond "first game ever" in the encyclopedia of college football.

Exactly. on the point of
"tradsition. The real sad part is that their idiot fans don't even have a clue about some of their big names in history of their school. I can't tell you how many Snookies I asked about PAUL ROBESON. and got a dumb look of total ignorance like I just asked them about the third law of quantum physics.:confused:

Completely agree with your post except for one thing, Vallone is young and his memory probably doesn't go back much more than 6 years with tradition.
