Not Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer. In fact, he reference ISIS to discuss just how lucky he is.

“I’m the luckiest guy alive,” Scott Shafer said via Stephen Bailey of “I see ISIS is out there cutting people’s heads off. The real world has got some major problems, some major problems, and we’re just so doggone lucky to be coaching and playing a sport, and being criticized for not getting a call made with a couple seconds left in the game or being criticized for not catching a dead pig with air in it.

“So to me, life’s pretty damn good and I’m so lucky to be having to field these types of questions. I feel so blessed to be a football coach and living a dream. Every once in a while it’s uncomfortable, but that’s what makes the highs that much better.”
