Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

Hoops Season Starts in T-Minus . . . .

Before the weekly "Glaude at the FanHouse Update," this blurb from the Cincinnati Enquirer demands a cursory review:
When the Bearcats entered the Big East, Syracuse was a team UC officials saw as a drawing card because of the Orange's winning tradition. This is a program that won the national championship in 1959, has played in 23 bowl games, produced 42 All-Americans and ranked 13th nationally in total victories entering this season.
And now Syracuse is in the midst of an 11 game Big East Conference losing streak.

Thanks, Paul Pasqualoni!

Now, on to the business du jour. To read the essays in their entirety, click on the highlighted text above the excerpted piece.

Syracuse Report Card: Cincinnati
It is not easy to lose 11 consecutive Big East Conference games.

Syracuse, in an apparent effort to disprove the idiom that "every dog has its day," managed to achieve such a feat Saturday against rapidly improving Cincinnati.
Poliquin: Syracuse Must Transition to 2007
And now, a brief interlude from the seminal American comedy Animal House:
D-Day: War's over, man. Wormer dropped the big one.

Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Otter: Germans?

Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

Bluto: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough . . .

[thinks hard]

Bluto: . . . the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!
Bud Poliquin, the proverbial "half-empty" columnist for the Syracuse Post-Standard, apparently never heard the above-mentioned sage advice from Senator John "Bluto" Blutarsky. With Syracuse's 2006 bowl aspirations rapidly evaporating, Poliquin today called for Orange head coach Greg Robinson to employ a "cut-and-run" mentality and immediately re-tool for Syracuse's 2007 campaign.
Rahme: Syracuse Must Look to the Future
The passionate plea requested by Syracuse Post-Standard columnist Bud Poliquin has apparently found footing at the local Central New York daily.

In a meandering piece appearing in today's edition, acclaimed staff writer Dave Rahme argues that Syracuse neophyte head coach Greg Robinson must assimilate his young talent into the Orange playbook during the current Syracuse bye-week.
