In Wikipedia We Trust

On a lark, I decided to head over to Wikipedia and see if any of our favorite Syracuse sons have pages up and what those pages might say to their accomplishments and character. The gift of Wikipedia is of course that anyone can go on there and add information or write anything about a topic.


About anything.

It so happens that I came across the
Wikipage of one Greg Robinson. The good times ensued:

Robinson is considered by many to be one of the worst college football coaches in a BCS league, often appearing on lists of coaches on the "hot seat" who are close to being fired. In addition fan support of Syracuse football has hit an all time low during the Robinson era, with most of the fans still left calling for Robinson's job. His season opener in 2007 was a complete debacle. Quite frankly, the Syracuse students believe Jim Boeheim would make a better football coach then Robinson. There is speculation that Robinson could be succeeded by ex-NFL Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis.

Nothing says "cold, hard, irrefutable fact" like a sentence that starts with "Quite Frankly..."

By the time you read this, all of that may be gone. (We can all hope the Bettis thing goes away quickest of all) That's the beauty of Wikipedia. It doesn't matter what the truth is, it only matters who told the story last.

And no, I didn't write it. But yes I agree Boeheim might make a better coach. Worst case, at least he knows the facilities really well.

(Ed. Note - As I should have guessed, DOCTOR Daryl Gross' page isn't a glowing review either)
