Syracuse Covers the Spread
A 35 point underdog, Syracuse managed to only lose to Notre Dame by 24, 34-10. The game featured the highlight of the season when they went up by a field goal in the 1st quarter to go up 3-0.
While I don't think you'll see 2005's covering of a 35 point spread, on any of the "Great Moments in Syracuse Football History" on the BubbleTron in the Carrier Dome next year, the NBC-Notre Dame Media Gustapo gave the SU defense a "thattaboy" for a gamey effort, once they stopped calling them the Syracuse "Orangemen" (I have 2008 as the year this stops).
If your thinking SU should drop football, fear not. Committed RB Delone Carter is lighting up his high school district in the Akron, Ohio area and pretty much everyone that's ever played Quarterback on a West Coast like offense in high school, including Greg Paulus' little brother has visited the school. SU already has signed Baltimore QB prospect Andrew Robinson.
