The Syracuse football team had an opportunity to play a tune last heard around these parts in 2001. Instead, it put on the same old broken record and tortured itself, its coaches and his fans with it for four hours Saturday afternoon.

In winning the Huskies earned the league' auto-bid for the NCAA tournament and they will learn where they'll be seeded on Tuesday.
