GRIN AND BEAR IT: After rocky 1st half, Syracuse rallies to blowout victory over Maine

Posted on by

first_imgRyan Nassib missed the opening. It was there, if he had just tucked the ball and ran a second or so earlier. But by the time he had scampered for three yards, the Maine defense closed on him. Fourth-and-goal at the four. Nassib stared at the possibility — another halftime deficit to Maine. And he hoped SU head coach Doug Marrone would give him one more shot to cap a momentous series that would alter Syracuse’s fortunes against lowly Maine. Nassib’s worries were soon put aside. For Marrone, down by four, it was touchdown or bust. And for Nassib, it was touchdown. ‘I was a little surprised,’ Nassib said of his coach’s decision. ‘I was hoping he was going to go for it. I’m just happy he gave me the ball.’ With the touchdown strike to Jose Cruz that ensued on fourth down, Nassib and the SU offense erased one poor half of play and shifted momentum in favor of the Orange going into the locker room. Syracuse (2-1) rode the momentum the rest of the way, never looking back in an eventual 38-14 blowout of the Black Bears (1-2) in front of 37,758 inside the Carrier Dome on Saturday. The win was SU’s first in a home opener since 2004.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Nassib had five touchdown passes, setting an SU record. He finished 19-for-28 for 260 yards on the day. Only 1-for-4 in the first quarter, Nassib perhaps best exemplified the shift in the Orange’s play in the second quarter, culminating in the touchdown pass to Cruz with 27 seconds left in the half. ‘There was no doubt that we were going to score,’ Cruz said. ‘There wasn’t even a word in the huddle saying, ‘Oh, we have to get this.’ We came out confident, and we were ready to score the touchdown.’ The touchdown marked the turning point. Because in the first half, Maine looked like the dominant, confident team. The FBS team. And the Big East team. The Black Bears started off the game with a trick play of sorts — a reverse handoff on the kickoff return that Desmon Randall promptly returned to the Syracuse 31-yard line. After that, though, Maine kept it simple. Simple and methodical. There was the 14-play, 84-yard drive that took almost eight minutes off the clock in the first quarter, culminating in a Warren Smith quarterback keeper that he took 10 yards to the end zone. And there was the five-play, 56-yard drive in which Smith found a wide-open Justin Perillo in the left corner of the end zone. ‘I am definitely not the ‘Here we go again’ type,’ Marrone said. ‘I look at things differently. I thought it was a great opportunity to see what we were made of. … There are probably some people out there saying, ‘Here we go again.’ I know I wasn’t one of them, and I don’t think our players were.’ The tide started to change when Derrell Smith forced a fumble in wrapping up Warren Smith. The SU linebacker pounced on the ball, giving the Orange the ball on Maine’s 24-yard line. The forced fumble came directly after Maine running back Derek Session dropped a sure touchdown pass near midfield. Session found himself past SU cornerback Mike Holmes and the SU defense, but he proceeded to turn his head and look ahead, losing sight of the ball as it bounced off his chest. ‘We picked up the next play and didn’t allow that play to get us down,’ Smith said. ‘It was just a mishap. I’m not sure what happened, the next play we came out and we played our defense.’ Down 14-10, Nassib and the offense embarked on the game-changing drive. After moving to Maine’s eight-yard line, SU sputtered the first three tries at goal. But on fourth-and-goal, Nassib improvised and scrambled right, eventually flinging a perfect strike to a falling-down Cruz for the momentous touchdown. Syracuse kept its pedal to the floor all the way through the third quarter. Nassib launched 20-plus-yard touchdown passes to wide-open Alec Lemon, Nick Provo and Van Chew. Two plays into the fourth quarter, SU had a 24-point lead and the game in hand. It spring-boarded from Marrone’s decision, Nassib’s throw and Cruz’s catch that Hogue said had the Orange energized at halftime. The opening was there, and this time, Nassib seized it. And going into the locker room, SU had shown Marrone enough to give them an energized proclamation at halftime. Said Marrone: ‘I told them, ‘We’re winning a football game.” [email protected] Published on September 19, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

21-year runner Harrison runs short one leg

Posted on by

first_imgSCENIC ROUTE—Every year, William Harrison joins thousands of others in the Pittsburgh Marathon. William Harrison can tell you horrific stories of his time as a 911 dispatcher. He can also take you on a journey through his rich family history, most notably holding the distinction of the most degrees from the University of Pittsburgh of any African-American family. But perhaps what he’s most proud of, is being a part of the elite 13, a group of runners who have been through every Pittsburgh Marathon, including the first two Great Races.This year’s race marked Harrison’s 21st marathon. What makes him different from probably most of the others is that he doesn’t train between marathons. In fact, he can’t train. While in high school, Harrison, 59, discovered he had non-cancerous bone growths in his left leg. Four operations and four decades later, his left leg is still the source of constant pain.“If I trained the way people are supposed to train, I probably wouldn’t be able to run the race. I don’t have the strength in my left leg that I do in my right leg,” Harrison said. “That kind of strain on my knee, I just wouldn’t be able to do it. The only thing I can consider training is the last race I ran.”As a former athlete at Westinghouse High School, the loss of strength in his left leg hit Harrison particularly hard. He has spent the rest of his life trying to show people how he has been able to overcome his disability through the power of God.“I ran the Great Race with the hope of telling my surgeon he couldn’t tell me what I can’t do. After I ran the first two Great Races, I called him up. I said is that good enough for you? He said no, I shouldn’t be doing that,” Harrison said. “I ran the first six before he stopped telling me what I couldn’t do.”The Pittsburgh Marathon takes runners on a tour of the city, confronting a variety of neighborhoods, not only the nicest ones. For native Pittsburghers, the sight of familiar landmarks is what inspires them to continue.“Running through Homewood is special. Homewood is in such bad shape,” Harrison said. “In this family you’re born Westinghouse Bulldogs. I use that because Westinghouse is right by mile 18 and most runners will tell you mile 18 is where you hit the wall. There’s no quit in me. There’s no quit in a Bulldog.”Mentally, Harrison’s weak leg has been a counterbalance for his physical shortcomings. Coupled with his devout religious beliefs, he sees his ability to overcome the odds and finish every race as a miracle.“A large part of finishing longer distance races is mental. First and foremost I think about God, I think about all the factors in my life that allowed me to run, I think about being the descendants of slaves,” Harrison said. “Clearly Jesus gave me the power to run with one and a half legs.”Harrison’s story has inspired others including his sons to begin running. Throughout each race he also serves as constant inspiration to his fellow runners.“All I can tell you now with the future of the Pittsburgh Marathon is, if I’m alive, I’ll do it. They start blending together after awhile. After number seven my body was pretty much imprinted with I’m going to do this every year. It can’t be pain because my left leg hurts all the time. Because it hurts all the time it can’t be an excuse,” Harrison said. “I talk to people during the race. I tell them, I’m going to finish this race so you’ve got to finish. There’s no reason I should be finishing this race.”last_img read more
