This list only gets more painful. The Orangemen's 2002 loss to Temple finds itself at the #6 spot on our Top 10 Football Mulligans of the HumpIdiot Era Countdown. Here's what the Idiots have to say:
Russianator, "Syracuse scores a TD at the end of regulation to tie it and Colin Barber misses an extra point and SU loses to Temple? Did that really happen? It did, and in retrospect, it was the beginning of the end for Paul P. "
Poncho, "We should never lose to Temple. Period. I don’t care if Bill Cosby guest coached them on this day and he handed out puddin’ pops. This game was the beginning of the bandwagon to get Pasqualoni out of Syracuse. Talk radio from there on out (That’s you Mr. Brent Axe) was hammering on the staleness of ‘Cuse football in the next couple years and it definitely had a feeling it was losing it’s Mojo."
Champ, "The seven people in attendance at the Vet still talk about this one."
