Spring football is just about to wind down, and next Saturday the Orange will take the field for the annual spring game. Right around then, Syracuse fans will be able to determine whether the 2014 squad will be the best Syracuse team of all-time, or the worst, with absolutely no in between.

But the players aren’t the only guys getting things into gear, as head coach Scott Shafer is also no doubt working on perfecting his pre and post game quotes and catch phrases. So with that in mind, we figured it was time to take a look at the spring football Power Rankings for what we can only guess will be Scott Shafer’s favorite “curse” words that you’ll hear peppered throughout his press conferences. And since this is the incredibly #hardnosed Scott Shafer we’re talking about here, those words will no doubt be colorful, but completely PG in nature.
