With the end of spring ball at hand, Syracuse coach Dino Babers figures his Orange are farther ahead than when he took over the program just over a year ago.
"Anytime you learn a new system, there's going to be difficulties," Babers said as he prepared for Saturday's spring-ending scrimmage in the Carrier Dome. "I think the biggest thing is the guys are being more physical. They know where to go ... and I think they're having a lot more fun doing it."
With quarterback Eric Dungey healthy again and packing more muscle on his 6-foot-3 frame, the offense is poised to become more efficient after an impressive first season under Babers.
