Countdown to Football Frustration

Post-Spring BlogPoll Roundtable

With my juris doctor securely in hand and some free time before all-out preparation for the Connecticut bar examination begins, I thought I'd take a minute and participate in Burnt Orange Nation's Post-Spring BlogPoll Roundtable.

For those that are unaware, the BlogPoll Roundtable is a somewhat regular discussion of issues concerning college football. Those participating are members of MGoBlog's BlogPoll, a collection of college football bloggers spanning the nation, populized (albeit begrudingly) by mostly Big Ten and Georgia writers.

Which offseason story are you most tired of, and, on the flip side, interested in? (e.g. Reggie Bush's house, Jimmy Claussen, etc.)
In short, I am incredibly tired of anything to do with recruiting. As I have noted before, I think that recruiting is one of the scummiest and pointless exercises engaged in by modern man. It truly makes me sick, especially because Syracuse is so bad at it.

The story I am most interested in is the Fulmer Cup. Every Day Should Be Saturday does a great job of tracking the stupidity that pervades college football. With three months remaining until the gridders are distracted with classes, practices, and games, more fireworks are sure to light up the summer sky.

Your head coach comes down with a mystery illness and has to step aside. You get to hand pick the replacement for the 2006 season. Who gets your vote?
I guess this is a two-prong question.

First, if Greg Robinson came down with a mystery illness (such as chronic losing) and the selection needed to come from the current coaching staff, the pick would have to be new offensive coordinator Brian White. As one of the architect's of Wisconsin's heroically efficient offense, White has all the tools necessary to bring success to the Orange. He's seasoned, he knows how to develop players, and, most importantly, the players appear to respect him.

If the selection could come from anywhere in the college football universe, the pick would have to be Steve Spurrier. Spurrier walked into a difficult situation at South Carolina and brought them from terrible to mediocre in just one season. Given the fact that Syracuse probably isn't that far away talent-wise from South Carolina at the onset of 2005, I would feel very confident that Spurrier could lead Syracuse to, at a minimum, the upper crust of the Big East, if not the top.

Morever, Spurrier is super interesting. This stands in stark contrast to Greg Robinson, who's personality rivals that of corrugated cardboard.

Lastly, we'll mix the football and the blogging together here. If you could have anyone switch allegiances and start covering your team, who you gonna pick?
Let me just say that there are a host of awesome bloggers penning pieces on college football. Instead of going through an exhaustive list of writers that are better than I (of which there are tons), I'll just boil down the answer to whom I believe would fit the Syracuse blogger profile perfectly: Brian Cook.

When I first read MGoBlog, I was almost positive that Brian had some roots at Syracuse University. His cynicism, critical tone, and affection for blaspheming the very university he identifies himself with encapsulates the Syracuse tradition. He pulls no punches, is well-written and read, and generally updates his blog on a somewhat regular basis.

In short, he's the tops and would be a welcome addition to the Syracuse blog community (which, for the record, appears to be only me).

    Great answers - and I think you got Brian down to a T. He's my choice, too.

    And congrats on the JD!

    There are three bits of advice I give to everyone entering law school:

    1. Only first year sucks. The last two years blow simply because they are pointless and you are forced by the ABA to pay for it.

    2. Watch football on Saturdays and do nothing else.

    3. Drink with your professors every opportunity you get.

    You follow these tenets, and everything else is cream cheese.
