I have been doing some research on how bad things have gotten. Let me tell you they are pretty bad. Out of the 119 division 1 schools, Syracuse is rated 109. On the offensive side of the ball only 5 teams are worse then SU. On defense, seven teams. How about this Stat guess how many points separate Syracuse and buffalo, give up .50 of a point. That means if Syracuse gets blown out and buffalo wins or keeps there game competitive then Syracuse could be ranked below buffalo. Can you believe that Buffalo would be the number one team in New York State? How bout this stat, Teams that are rated higher than Syracuse who have not even one:
86 Colorado State
I never thought that I would see the day that a 0-4 Louisiana-Monroe would be ranked higher than a Syracuse team. How did this happen. I can Pretty much pinpoint the downfall of Syracuse football.
