    Syracuse Football

    For Syracuse, the Dome made the difference. Victories were waiting for Syracuse, and the Dome brought them back. The Dome opened in September of 1980. It immediately signaled to people playing and watching the game that Syracuse University was unique. It had the Carrier Dome.

    It not only happened in football, but look at what happened to Syracuse basketball and lacrosse! So much of their success happened because of the Dome. The Dome is attractive to fine young athletes, who dream that they could play here. It became the greatest recruiting tool in making Syracuse football, basketball and lacrosse easily recognized as competitive teams in all areas on the national level.

    So what I was really trying to say is the Dome is the key to our success in athletics and deserves much of the credit.
