My three favorite philosophers are Dick MacPherson, Jim Boeheim and Marcus Aurelius not necessarily in that order.

Some reporter asked MacPherson a question about recruiting against PSU. MacPherson looked at the reporter like a moron who just peed on his own shoes and replied, "Let's be clear. We'd be tickled pink to have any player Penn St. recruits at Syracuse."

Jim Boeheim was asked a question about the importance of courtside coaching. He replied, "The team with the best players off the bus almost always wins."

The question about Syracuse football since the Golden Era of Schwartzie, is how do we recruit against the big state university programs. If we can't recruit top quality linemen we'll be mediocre forever. We don't do a bad job with skill players, but they can't make up for losing the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.

My take is we have to sell Syracuse as a different kind of program. "We are family". We have coaching continuity. We promote our own. You're an individual at Syracuse not just one of a herd.
