Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

Report Card: v. Rutgers

It’s official: Watching Syracuse play football is better than a car wreck involving a semi plowing into a hybrid causing both drivers to be thrown clear and raging fires to ensue.

Basically, it’s the stuff that RealTV would cover. It’s almost schadenfreude, but unfortunately, the joke is on the Orange masses.

With the loss to the Scarlet Blight Saturday afternoon, Syracuse has put itself into the awesome position of retooling for next season. Coach Greg Robinson alluded to this fact during comments made after Saturday's embarassment when responding to a question posed about the team moving backwards:

“I don’t know that. It looks like it, but I don’t know if that’s part of the deal. I don’t know that. It’s not looking good right now. I can tell you that. We have to get the offense rolling. We have to. Defense is fighting to hold their own. And to keep pulling like that, the other side has to turn the corner. That’s the bottom line.”


If I were in the Salt City, I’d be organizing a lynch mob at this point. Anyways, this weeks edition of the report card is an homage to the thesuarus and, consequently, is pretty truncated. While I wish I could've written more, when you hand out this many "F's", there isn't much that needs to be said.

Quaterbacks: F

Runningbacks: F(umble)

Receivers/Tight Ends: F

Offensive Line: F

Defensive Line: D

Linebackers: D+

Secondary: C+
Save Anthony Smith’s performance, this probably would be a big, fat F.

Special Teams
Carney: B
You broke my heart.

Punt Return Team: F

Offense: F

Defense: C
