NEW SYRACUSE CB INTERCEPTS QB AT 'CUSE SPRING PRACTICE. RAIN FALLS DOWN, FIRE BURNS.

New, 7 comments

Syracuse sophomore Nick Chestnut, playing in his first practice since switching from wide receiver to corner, intercepted a pass at Syracuse practice. This would be remarkable if cornerbacks hadn't been catching Syracuse passes for the better part of a year now; Syracuse exhausted the English language in redefining horrendous offense, starting out bad, going to wretched, making a quick descent through execrable and blighted before slipping into an ineffably pestilential sub-basement of deplorable we really haven't properly formed a word for yet.

The hiring of new offensive coordinator Brian White away from Wisconsin has to be an improvement on the offensive coaching staff--this is a meaningless statement, actually, since putting the XBox in charge would have been an improvement--especially since Wisconsin, in between bizarre spasms like a 7-2 loss to UNLV, has had one of the more quietly effective attacks in football over the past decade.

White, by the way, has to be wasting more expensive private education than even Mike Leach as a multi-degreed football coach: a BA from Hahhhvard, a master's from Fordham, and an MBA from Notre Dame. With that kind of profligate terminal student status, he probably really needs to the work just to stay a step ahead of Citibank.

Brian White: playah got degreez like WHOA.
