SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Scott Shafer enters his third season at Syracuse somewhat under the gun. He's not fazed.
"College football is about pressure every single year," Shafer said. "They're just going to look at the bottom line, year in and year out. I understand that."
Named head coach after Doug Marrone bolted for the NFL, the Orange's former defensive coordinator also understands his team is coming off a 3-9 year in which it won only one Atlantic Coast Conference game in eight tries.
