Attention, Orange comrades!
I have glorious news for you. We have won the battle for defensive line production! All over The Syracuse City-State this morning there were irrepressible spontaneous demonstrations when workers marched out of factories and offices and paraded through the streets with banners voicing their gratitude to Big Brother Doug Marrone for the new, happy life which his wise leadership has bestowed upon us.And most of all for the glorious, double-plus good return of Chandler Jones, who was not injured, despite what you might have heard in the rumor mill, but was off claiming victorious battles on behalf of Syracuse in far away lands.
"It’s been a long journey," Jones said. "A long journey. I mean, sitting back and watching my team play. Some of it was very exciting, watching us win, but losing was kind of hard. But I’m excited to be back on the field with my teammates and to be a physical and vocal leader out there."
"You know, it’s not going to be an easy matchup at all," Jones said. "I feel this is the best West Virginia team I’ve seen since I’ve been in college. I’m just excited for the opportunity to compete against this team. It’s been very emotional for me. I’ve been counting down the days. I’m just excited to release all the jarred-up energy Friday night."
Be sure, comrades, that if Big Brother Marrone has the chance to defer the coin toss, he will most assuredly do so. Deferring the flip of the coin ensures victory for our great Syracuse City-State.
Like its won-loss record, the Orange have a 4-2 mark in coin tosses this season – losing only at Southern California and at home against Rutgers.
In all six games, the coin toss winner has deferred its decision, thus forcing its opponent to either take the ball first or face kicking off to start each half.
Many of our beloved Orange football contests have gone into overtime this season. While this game is not expected to be so close, chances are that it will indeed come down a final play that may or may send the contest into overtime.
What say you, comrade? Will we see an overtime contest involving our beloved Syracuse City-State?
