Both have lost so many times, in such agonizing fashion, that you almost wish they'd stop trying.'

Marker Gray excited to interview for Syracuse job [5:43 PM]
AP reports: '''I'm interested in the job. I think it's a great job,'' Gray told The Associated Press Saturday. ''I'm open. I have a great job here. And if it doesn't work out with Syracuse, the worst I can do is have 10 starters back on defense next year. I'm in a great situation.'''

Marker Kelly: Bills' offense muted [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"To be honest, if J.P. had been ready this year, they would have gone to him," Kelly said. "But I don't think J.P. is ready yet mentally. Physically, he has it all. He's got the arm strength, he's a good athlete who can move around and he's a tough kid. But I think it's still going to take time for him to develop the knowledge you need at this level. I do believe he's going to be a good one when he is ready."'

Marker Bills roster will change next season [5:02 AM]

On offense, wide receiver Josh Reed has failed to impress in three seasons, nor has fellow wideourt Sam Aiken in two campaigns.'

They've seen some tape on Vinny, and even though it's all indoor tape, they think he has a strong leg and lot of potential because he's only 21 years old."'
