College football is synonymous with traditions. It's why EA Sports went through such trouble to promote its addition of school traditions and mascots in NCAA Football 12.
Syracuse has a storied football program, ranking 15th all time in total wins, winning a National Championship in 1959 and having the nation's first African-American Heisman Trophy winner in Ernie Davis.
Naturally, the program has has its ups-and-downs over the years, but the fans remain loyal to the team. Under alum and coach Doug Marrone, Syracuse football has seen a resurgence, and he has reminded the team of these memories and long ago championships.
On Twitter, I asked some of Syracuse's most hardcore fans: "What are the some of the Oranges' most important and long-lasting traditions?"
Here were there responses.
