Syracuse Orange Top 10 Football Players Of All-Time


 

Syracuse University used to be a football school, you know.   Back before Jim Boeheim and the Carrier Dome ruled the SU Hill, it was Archbold Stadium and running backs that symbolized Syracuse University athletics.

We decided to start our reboot with Inside the Loud House with a top 10 list of all-time Syracuse football players.  Let’s clarify a couple rules to the list.  We are only ranking players who played post-World War II.  So, we apologize now to Hall of Famers Joe Alexander and Vic Hanson.  There is no doubt these guys are legends and would be considered for the list.  But it was a different era of football and honestly, we don’t know much about these players in terms of people seeing them play live.  Also, we are judging them on their Syracuse University football careers, not what they did in the NFL.

When compiling the list, we took into account the era they played in and their influence on the Syracuse program at that time.  Although stats were considered, they were not the driving force behind the list.  We would love to hear your opinion on the list and your memories of the players and their playing time with the Orange.
