In light of that AMAZING performance yesterday, I got to thinking, if M. Vick had come to Syracuse (like he was supposed to) would SU Football continued to have gone to the crapper in the 2000's???
He Redshirted in 1998 (which he would have done here too as DM was still here.) Lets say he would have stayed for 2 seasons. I know VaTech embarassed us in 1999 (Believe Bullock said they were going to make him look like a frosh) and proceeded to lose 62-0 at Lane Stadium in front of a college game day crowd i think??
The 2000 game in the Dome was a better battle even though we still lost. I was at that game, and seeing him rip off that 50+ yard run to seal the game in the 4th, you couldnt help but think he would have put up even BETTER stats on the carpet inside the dome if he played for Cuse.
That being said, lets say we would have gone to the Sugar Bowl in 99 and the gator Bowl in 2000. Would our recruiting have increased, program have continued success??? or would vick just have delayed the inevitable by 2 years?? Thoughts???
