Watch- #TheOrangeZone breaks down the SU players' waiting game for a bowl

The Syracuse Orange accomplished its goal of making a bowl game.

The question now is, what bowl will the Orange call home? And how does the waiting game affect the players?

For that perspective, we call on Damien Rhodes. Of course he's our co-host for The Orange Zone (7pm, Thursday night) but in 2004 in his junior year the Orange was in a very similar position.

The Orange had defeated Boston College to clinch bowl eligibility, and had to wait to eventually find out it'd be playing in the Champs Sports Bowl.

This year, the feeling is strangely similar, so we ask Damien what that emotion is like. Watch the video player to hear his take.
