So you're right, don't be surprised that the Bills want to select SU QB Ryan Nassib in the draft. Also don't be surprised to hear the Bills want to play a pre-season game or some kind of practice at the Dome in Syracuse.
Doug Marrone is mediocre and his record at SU reflects that.
That must be why he interviewed for so many jobs. All those teams wanted him for non-football reasons.
I know we all hate Buffalo, but try to be objective.
