Syracuse football: the next win will be the toughest

+

The Syracuse Orange are 5-0 heading into the bye week. They’ve matched last season’s win total and are off to the best start since 1987. Getting to this point hasn’t been easy (or pretty) but with one more win Syracuse will be able to claim this as a successful season. I know what some of you are going to say right now and let me just tell you this once again- if Syracuse finishes the year 6-6 it will be a successful season. Will it hurt to come back from the bye and watch this team go 1-6 the rest of the way? Of course. Despite what some of you might think we’re all fans here. We want to see the teams and athletes do well and have success. We are excited about top 25 rankings, appearing in bowl projection or being talked about in a positive manner by college football media. We want the Orange to keep this ride going....but we’re also realistic.
