Colgate Will Get the Bad Taste of Colgate Out of Your Mouth

It's been rumored for quite some time, but Syracuse officially announced Colgate as the team's 12th opponent for the 2010 football season.

For those counting at home, Syracuse now has a Rutgers-esque two Division 1-AA teams on the slate, both at home. Orange fans will be treated to a home schedule that features:

- Maine
- Colgate
- Pittsburgh
- Louisville
- Connecticut
- Boston College

Be still my beating heart. But hey, over the last 5 years it's not like Doctor Gross has jacked up ticket prices for the most loyal fans (suckers) like myself. I'm dumb enough to have premium A level football seats - which means a pair of season tickets run well over a grand. And I live in Albany. Seems worth it for 14 wins in 5 years and two 1-AA teams on the home slate to start the year. Thanks Doc. You're doing a bang up job with this program.

On the bright side, with this schedule the Orange are one step closer to the Mike and the Mechanics Bowl.

So this calls for an informal poll:

So what do the 10's of readers of
T3I think the mighty Orange's home record will be.... and who do they beat.

I say 3-3
they will beat Maine, Colgate, and Louisville.

2-4. They lose to Louisville.

I think they go 2 - 4 as well, but I wouldn't be surprised if they beat Louisville and lose to Maine.

And knowing Gross, he's probably hoping to make it to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Because there's nothing like impressing recruits by playing in a 30 degree bowl game on December 30.

I say 2-4

And, an invite to the "New" Coke Bowl down in HOTlanta.
