Still 11:29 left, which is a lot of time. Still, I figure Syracuse is 4 or 5 first downs away from putting this thing away.
It’s probably the biggest win of Greg Robinson’s tenure, and the guy does know plenty about defense. He schemed well against Bobby Petrino’s teams, which people forget. Still, I think he’s doing it with far less talent this season — so don’t take any credit away from them.
The fact is, Syracuse has played good competition to this point, and the Orange were completely ready for what they saw in Louisville — such as it has been.
Syracuse 19 yards for a first down. Four more first downs to victory. Might not take that, but clock stoppages don’t help.
I know some of you would like more instant opinion on this blog — but I have to save something for the column!
One thought by way of preview: Remember last year’s team slogan? Bobby Petrino gave every player a piece of rope with the words “hold the rope.”
There’s a new slogan in Louisville now. “Hang onto the thread.”
