The Twelve Days of Orange Christmas



Here's to you, Coach Robinson.
With Syracuse's 2006 football season having experienced its sunset almost a month ago, there has been much discussion concerning the Orange's most recent gridiron effort. As it is the Christmas season, I thought it would be fun to memorialize and recapitulate head coach Greg Robinson's second effort in song.

For the 2006 campaign review, I chose the seasonally appropriate The Twelve Days of Christmas. Some of the verses require a bit of rhythmic shoehorning, but you should get the picture.

The worst team in the Big East.


On the second day of Christmas, GRob gave to me,
