Syracuse 38, Louisville 35: Cardinals D Allows 465 Yards to 116th Ranked Offense

9/22/07 in NCAAF   |   CriticalFanatic   |   respect

Last week Louisville's national title hopes ended. Today, their Big East hopes may have died alongside Brian Brohm's Heisman. A great comeback to keep it close, but still a major upset.

The sieve that is the Cardinals defense allowed 465 yards to the 116th ranked offense in the country. Syracuse struggled to get than many yards in 3 games.

Orange quarterback Andrew Robinson had passed for 486 yards on the season; passed for 423. It can't be overstated how bad the Louisville defense has been this season.

At the very least, let's hope Kentucky will be ahead of Louisville in someone's poll.

Is it safe to say that no one will get the perfection medal for NCAAF today now?


I'm pretty sure it wasn't 100%, so who had the jugulars to pick Syracuse in this game?  I'm not talking about covering the spread, I mean straight up to win the game.


BTW, I picked Michigan to win and it just went final.  Not really big news, I just wanted to say it.  I'm just glad something finally went my way today.

Bet Notre Dame wishes they had Louisville on their schedule. They could boost their offensive numbers into respectability with just one game

This is a bigger upset than App. St/Michigan.  "Cuse was a 37 point underdog

Goes to show you how bad the Big "Least" is. So far the conference's biggest win is at 1-2 Auburn.

Maybe the Big Ten is salvaging some pride today. Both Illinois and Iowa took Syracuse to the woodshed, and the 'Cuse just beat Louisville. We won't know until the end of the season just how weak or solid these conferences are.

How is Louisville supposed to win when the opposing QB can levitate like that? That's just not fair.
