Chop'n Knights - Notes from the Nation - Week 5 |
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.
