What Can I Say About Syracuse Football That Hasn't Already Been Said About Afghanistan?

It looks bombed out and depleted.

Seriously, I can't even bring myself to go into detail at this point. We're horrible. I'm going to do a Quest-o-meter update right after this but its a moot point. This season has gone from "Can we win six games?" to "Can we win four games?" to "Can we win one game?" quicker than MiniKiss gets to Rock & Roll All Night on their set list.

As it was last week, the most entertaining portion of the Syracuse football process is Greg Robinson's postgame comments.

On whether or not the Orange are "broken."

"I surely can't argue with you. That's your term, broken."

Well, which is it? You can't argue or you don't like the term?

"Obviously, there's something in there that isn't going right."


"We've got to continue to evaluate what we're going to do, what we are doing and what we're going to do."

Yes please, keep evaluating. Keep guessing. Keep tweaking. I'm sure you'll figure it out sometime around 2024.

"I'd like to think we're doing the right things. We're just not doing them well."

I'd like to think I come home every night to Ali Larter. I'm just not going to the right house.

But finally, I give you Robinson's pièce de résistance. A blanket statement that explains everything you need to know about Greg Robinson and the future of Syracuse football. In fact, it's a statement that undoes everything you think you know about life in general. When asked if Saturday night’s performance was
Robinson’s low point in his three years at SU, he said:

"No, it wasn’t my low point because I don’t know if I have a low point."

You see! It is YOU who is the problem. You and your crazy "expectations." You and your stupid "standards." If only you could see what Greg Robinson sees. If you don't have any kind of measurable benchmarks in life, then you never have to live up to them.

Thankfully, someone actually decided to speak from the heart this week. Wide receiver
Mike Williams:

"Maybe it's a reality check. Maybe they're just that much better than us. We've got a young team. People have to wait. It might not be our year."

We're not even out of September and our starting receiver is throwing in the towel. It's sad but at least he's not bullshitting himself or us.
