Imagine if you will, a 6-1, 248 pound running back charging through the line at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse New York. Orange coach Justin Lustig must have. So did a whole host of other schools including Pitt, Kentucky, Coastal Carolina and more.  But it was the Syracuse Program who will get to see that image in color, on their field.
