Summer can drag.
Mowing lawns, sweating through polos and watching old people pee in the pool.All things a sports fan must grind through just to see the football light of day in September.
That’s why the Phil Steele college football preview guideis often met with a reception usually reserved for the Pope or Hanna Montana.
It’s not even mid-June, rosters are far from stabilized and we’re just a few weeks removed from the spring games, yet one college football junkie has declared his entire bowl slate (hint: Syracuse is not on said slate).
The first (and most respected in the degenerate gambler demographic) college football preview has the 2009 Syracuse Orange slotted for…
Last in the Big East. Again.
Phil’s Forecast: “The last 3 years Syracuse has been 1-6 each year in the Big East and also dead last in ypg in conf. play at 157.6, 187.0 and 141.0. They do have 14 returning starters and I like the direction Marrone is taking this team but they have a ton of ground to make up in the conf. I’ll call for them to finish in the basement a 5th consecutive year.”
Damn you Phil Steele!
The Fizz has almost forgotten the Orange were last in the Big East for the last four years. God, that just sounds depressing.
The good news is, there may not be anyone left from those previous four teams. Marrone is carving up the roster like Clark Griswold on a Christmas goose.
