Let’s face it Syracuse is a weak team period. Struggles against powerhouses Rhode Island and Toledo speak for itself. The USC Trojans treated the Orange like an unwanted & unloved old Barbie doll, removing the head and one arm before tossing the remains in the local dumpster.

Mike O'Brien: UT Accepts Ruling From Big East, NCAA on Syracuse Game - University of Toledo Rockets Athletics Official Site - UTRockets.com
"While we are obviously disappointed for the student-athletes, coaches and fans that an officiating error played a role in the outcome of our football game at Syracuse, we accept the ruling from the Big East and the NCAA Football Rules Committee that the final outcome of the game cannot be reversed. We appreciate the efforts of those who looked into this matter. We consider the matter closed and now look forward to the remainder of the Rocket football season."

Poliquin: As Doug Marrone is a football coach (and a good one), we must forgive him his odd behavior | syracuse.com
More specifically, Marrone -- who seems of the opinion that bloggers and tweeters (never mind newspaper types) can only hurt the cause and, therefore, must be neutered -- is afraid that even the slightest analysis of his club’s wounds could only help Rutgers as the Scarlet Knights prepare for this Saturday’s affair at the Carrier Dome. As such, he’s manipulated the situation because he can.
