Dungey makes Davey O'Brien Award watch list

Syracuse QB Eric Dungey has been named to the 2017 Davey O'Brien Award watch list. This year's list was selected based on player performance during the previous year and expectations heading into the 2017 college football season. Dungey threw for 2,679 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2016.

The always quoteable Dino Babers was back at it at ACC Kickoff on Thursday, saying quarterback Eric Dungey was in charge of an up-tempo, fast NFL-style offense and not a Ford Pinto. "Don't get Ford mad at me. I know Ford doesn't make the Pinto anymore. But he's not driving a Pinto, he's driving a racing car. And when we go around corners, the tires need to sing, and that's the way we handle our offense."

Dino Babers ran into Lamar Jackson in the hall and put his hand on Jackson's arm. "I just had to touch you to make sure you're human," Babers told him. Jackson had 610 yards and 5 TDs vs Syracuse last year.

Dino Babers thanked every usher at the Carrier Dome after last year's win over Virginia Tech because they let the students storm the field. "That's something those students will remember for the rest of their lives."

Syracuse QB Eric Dungey played varsity basketball, baseball, football & track all 4 years of high school. "Kids that only play one sport, it's ridiculous. You lose the passion for one sport. And if you're a competitor, why wouldn't you want to compete all year?"

Syracuse announces a home-and-home series in 2018-19 with Western Michigan, coached by former Orange assistant Tim Lester. Syracuse will play at WMU next year, home in 2019. The latter game rounds out the Orange's non-conference slate for 2019.

ACC commissioner John Swofford said he expects the revenue gap between his conference and the Big Ten and SEC to close once the ACC Network launches in 2019. "That's why we're doing the channel," Swofford said. "We fully expect a gap with particularly the Big Ten and SEC here for a couple of years but that's the very reason we've signed to do what we're doing. We fully expect that gap will narrow considerably when we get the channel up and running."
