Orange shirts and empty seats.

When Syracuse University officials put the word out that game day Friday for the big Atlantic Coast Conference 2014 opener against Louisville was going to be marked by an Orange Out, I had hopes for something pretty cool in this city of ours.

Hunt needed to be helped off the field after getting hit twice during the fourth quarter of Syracuse's 28-6 loss to Louisville.  He initially waved off SU training staff, but struggled to put weight on his left leg.

Cardinal Sins: Poor Execution Costs Syracuse in 28-6 Loss to Louisville

“It’s always great to play Louisville,” safety Durell Eskridge said.  “I’m happy they’re in the ACC. They were one of our top opponents in the Big East.”
