SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse quarterback Charley Loeb is a self-described football junkie. That explains why he knows all about Todd Philcox, the Orange's starting quarterback two years before Loeb was born.
Philcox was a rare breed, starting only during his final year at Syracuse because a guy named Don McPherson was firmly entrenched. The wait was worth it: Philcox was 141 of 234 for 2,076 yards and 16 TDs with 11 interceptions in 1988, becoming one of only seven quarterbacks at Syracuse to throw for more than 2,000 yards. He went on to play for nearly a decade in the NFL.
Loeb's career path is similar. He's watched both Greg Paulus in 2009 and then Ryan Nassib excel at the position for the Orange, who have two bowl wins in the past three years. This is Loeb's final year of eligibility, and he's vying with John Kinder and Terrel Hunt for the starting job.
