The latest in Doug Marrone-watching

+

Did Doug Marrone force longtime Syracuse beatwriter Donnie Webb off the Post-Standard's Orange football coverage? It's just mere message board speculation, but taken into account with the Daily Orange pieces on all the various players kicked off their team in the past year and a half, and Marrone starts to come off as a figure determined to instill a culture of discipline over Syracuse football at the very minimum. Maybe that's what's needed to get over the Greg Robinson era. Marrone's staff supposedly used Webb as a conduit to leak information after first taking over, but there was some critical coverage of Greg Paulus last year IIRC Can't imagine ever seeing anything like that in Piscataway. RU football exercises strict control over practices, but the S.I.D. office is very press friendly. P.S. I wanted to save any discussion of Marrone until final rosters were released for the traditional New Jersey-Northeast Football Classic in Piscataway (which directly succeeded the old Governor's Bowl), as Dougie created the Upstate-Downstate Football Classic in Syracuse as another direct shot across the bow. However, the NJ-NE game has only released partial rosters, and U-D doesn't even have a website (with sparse coverage in the local press). Post some full rosters already so the internet can declare a victor!
