Syracuse defeats Syracuse?

If one team beats another team (not as much in the Big East where every beats everyone) it is safe to conclude that the first team will defeat a team that the 2nd team beat. For example, if Team A beats Team B, and Team B beats Team C then it is safe to conclude that Team A will beat Team C. However, if Team C beats Team A we get a cycle. In this scenario, you cant really determine which team is better than another because they have all beaten each other.

Examples of this in Syracuse's case:

Cuse defeats Wake 36-29, Wake defeats Florida State 35-30, Florida State defeats Maryland 41-16, Maryland defeats Miami 32-24, Miami defeats Ohio State 24-6, Ohio State defeats Illinois 17-7, Illinois defeats Arizona State 17-14, Arizona State defeats USC 43-22, and USC defeats the Orange 38-17.

Cuse defeats WV 49-23, WV defeats UConn 43-16, UConn defeats USF 16-10, USF defeats Notre Dame 23-20, Notre Dame defeats Air Force 59-33, Air Force defeats Navy 35-34, Navy defeats W. Kentucky 40-14, W. Kentucky defeats Louisiana–Lafayette 42-23, Louisiana–Lafayette defeats Troy 31-17, Troy defeats UAB 24-23, UAB defeats UCF 26-24, UCF defeats Marshall 16-6, Marshall defeats Louisville 17-13, Louisville defeats Rutgers 16-14, and sadly Rutgers defeats Syracuse 19-16.

So essentially, Syracuse has beaten themselves....in the form of other teams.
