1. Best 1st Half Moment
*Van Chew's amazing TD catch vs Pitt
*Mike Holmes 90-Yard Touchdown Return vs Pitt
* "The Express" Premiere at the Landmark Theater
*Daryl Gross and Nancy Cantor get booed at halftime of the Penn State Game
The smart-ass answer is of course the last one, and boy did that feel good, but you gotta go with The Express Premiere. Even though the rest of the weekend was a mess and the Swooshgate turned the Ernie Davis statue into a laughing stock, at least we had that one night where Syracuse Football mattered again.

6. Most Likely Coaching Scenario for Greg Robinson
*Put the "Ron Zook
If they were going to fire-fire him, it would HAVE TO be after the USF game. But I think we're past that. I fully expect the Ron Zook Plan to go into effect the week before the Cincy game.

7.Most Surreal Carrier Dome Crowd Experience
*The crowd laughing as an "official" atten
It's unlikely, I know. But hey...time will tell.
