The men's soccer team must replace eight starters from last year, while playing its toughest schedule in eight seasons.

Change is inevitable in college athletics. Players have four, maybe five years with a team. And if they are lucky, they have three years of playing together as the core of the team. After that, the team must rebuild. The men’s soccer team at Syracuse University is no exception.

The Orange have to replace eight players next season, which is no small task for any school.

“It is a big challenge this year, because of the turnover in the roster,” said head coach Ian McIntyre.
