I'm briefly checking back in to mention a couple quick things. Football is a bit over a month away and we here at Orange::44 are already jonesing bad for it. While we will have our usual in depth preview articles that we always do come the middle of August, I was asked by the College Football Zealots to do a preview for their great site. They have already torn through many of the teams that make up the BCS and now Syracuse. You can check out my early preview here. Also check out the other previews on their site. It is a must for college football fans.
We also want to give a big congratulations to SU's own Bud Tribbey who was nominated for the 2010 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. Apparently the "most prestigious off-the-field honor in college football", we couldn't be happier for Bud. Syracuse Football has always done a lot for the Syracuse community as a whole and it's nice that an exceptional student can be recognized for that work. Good luck and congratulations to Bud. The full information about the award and the other nominees can be found here.
Orange::44 is still on our standard summer relaxed schedule for new content (unless someone in the Big East catches a charge), however we'll be back very soon. We have our standard Big East Prospectus planned for next month, along with the standard coverage of the start of the new season. John will be back with his Monday Morning Quarterback column, and we will both be back with new podcasts in the coming year. I'm sure I'll rejoin Sean of Nunes/Magician on the airwaves again as well. It should be another fun year in store for Orange::44 and you fine readers. Until then, enjoy your summer.
