Syracuse heads into the offseason on a down note

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Five straight losses to end his second season at Syracuse wasn't what coach Dino Babers envisioned. He remains resolute in his optimism going forward.

"I don't feel like this is the end of what we're going to do," Babers said Saturday after the Orange had lost their final game of the season, 42-14 to Boston College . "I feel like this is the beginning. I really believe that the 2018 season is going to be something we'll talk about here for a long time."

Syracuse, which finished 4-8 for the third straight year and hasn't played in a bowl game since 2013, won only two of eight games in the Atlantic Coast Conference. A season that started with so much optimism quickly began to turn sour when Syracuse was upset at home in early September by Middle Tennessee State, with former Orange head coach Scott Shafer calling the defensive shots for the visitors.
