R.J. Anderson completed just 43 percent of his passes and the Orangemen proceeded to stumble to a 1-6 start. Granted, a defense that allowed 34 points a game didn't help Anderson's case much -- but maybe some of Troy Nunes' accuracy will rub off on Anderson.
Nunes threw for 57 percent and performed well in the last five games, averaging more than 200 yards. Anderson needs to step up next year, because Nunes won't be around to bail him out.
Walter Reyes and Damien Rhodes were two of the bright spots on this otherwise terrible offense. The two split time and Reyes ended up with 1,135 yards, fourth most in a single season by and Orangemen while scoring a school record 17 touchdowns.
The two should combine for a deadly tandem for the next two years.
Johnnie Morant is running out of time.
Once the No. 3 receiver out of high school, Morant was the No. 3 receiver on this team. Morant had just 327 yards and zero touchdowns this year.
Off the field, he's even a bigger headache, being suspended for eight games in his tenure at SU.
Jamel Riddle's back for next year, but gone is David Tyree -- the two combined for 1,185 yards and eight touchdowns.
Once expected to be the weak point of the Orangemen offense, the offensive line provided Rhodes and Reyes with an opportunity to run for 201 yards in a 50-42 upset of Virginia Tech.
They struggled early and turned it on late. While 28 sacks isn't anything to brag about, a young core can only get better.
