Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence.
- Simon and Garfunkel
This is what the lack on any announcement from Syracuse University regarding the future of football coach Greg Robinson has reduced me to - quoting lyrics from Paul Simon and his song writing partner, the pot loving Art Garfunkel. If this goes on much longer and I end up having to quote Peter Paul and Mary, I swear heads will roll.
As we've written for days, all signs point to a Robinson return, and we heard from sources (yes, we actually have sources besides the other voices we hear in our brains) that keeping Robinson is a done deal and it may have been decided BEFORE the Cincinnati game. Of course, according to the Axeman, only about 15,000 actual people were in the Dome for that one, so an empty building is enough to make anyone rethink things.
I will say again that prolonging the decision does NO GOOD regardless of what will be done, but hey, what do I know, I'm an idiot.
With that being said - the Axeman has been great covering this issue, his latest post is a must read for anyone that cares about the program. Donnie Webb and Dave Rahme have done an excellent job as well. Syracuse fans are lucky to have these guys covering the team. As for the the rest of the paper - I'll get into that another time.
