Syracuse spring game review

Doug Marrone may want to keep this Doug Marrone guy around as his offensive coordinator.

The Syracuse offense showed off some explosiveness in Saturday's spring game, as fans got a chance to watch Marrone call plays for the first time. The offense won 66-58 in a modified scoring system, and the passing game accounted for 400 yards and four touchdowns.

Ryan Nassib went 10-for-19 for 141 yards and a touchdown, but he's still got some competition from Charley Loeb, who was 18-for-23 for 259 yards and three scores.

Marcus Sales led the wideouts with eight catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns, while Alec Lemon had five catches for 82 yards and a touchdown.

Averin Collier ran for 70 yards on 14 carries, and Antwon Bailey added 47 yards on 11 tries. Leading returning rusher Delone Carter was suspended for the game.

Cornerback Phillip Thomas had an interception for the lone turnover of the scrimmage.
