The Idiots once again look into our respective crystal balls (cough - empty pint glasses) and offer up our game predictions for tomorrow:
Who shows up this week, Jekyll or Hyde? I'm going with a win by the Orangemen, 17-9. The WR's need to come up big again with the Syracuse running game missing in action. One way or the other I know this, Syracuse will remain undefeated in the Big East after this week as the 'Neers lick their chops.
Few things irk me more than political correctness in sports. It drives me insane when schools change their nickname, just because it may be slightly offensive to one group or another. So what if it is --- offending people is what this blog is all about. This Saturday’s opponent, the Miami of Ohio (they hate being called that) RedHawks, used to be nicknamed the Redskins until 1997. That is when their Board of Trustees’ balls shriveled into nothing after swallowing an elixir brewed up by the Miami Indian Tribe. Thankfully, Syracuse would never do something like that…ummmm…onto the score: Redskins 29 Orangemen 23. Grob still has some convincing of this idiot to get done.
Andrew Robinson had a breakout game last week against Louisville - 423 yards passing, 4 tds, national acclaim and attention from the likes of USA Today. Hell, I even heard a talking head on ESPN call him by the wrong first name this week (at least it was a mention). Young Andrew comes out firing on all cylinders this week - too bad his receivers revert back to earlier form and drop everything in sight. Not too worry cuse fans, the defense, using smoke and mirrors, keeps the team in the game against a BAD Redhawk squad, and ARob leads a late drive to set up the game winning 43 yard field goal by Pat Shadle - the cuse wins 23-20.
Afterward Shadle celebrates by eating 43 burritos - no one sits near him on the plane ride home.
