Can anyone identify this frame

Small and bad pic, but it's all there is. Any rough identification would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like a Cannondale 3.0 or 2.8 road frame.

Guy knows nothing about. He lives close to me so I'm looking to go measure it soon. Just trying to get a rough idea of what it is. I don't even know if it's a mountain or road frame.

I'd be highly skeptical of a lone cannondale road frame from that era which has been in the hands of someone who knows nothing about it. They are not the most robust frames and crack easily when subject to non-intended use and storage.

Looks to me around '92 was when they had the seatstay junction way ahead of the dropout and the split seatstay tube wrap on the joint:
