14 players + 2 walk-ons have left since Robinson left 'Cuse for the defensive coordinator job in December. You'd think that players would want to stay and play under a head coach with NFL experience, but damn...nearly one fifth of the roster.
OT: If you thought Michigan had attrition issues, take a look at Syracuse
Or maybe unmentioned is a better word. With the media piling on Michigan I was under the impression that we were the only program to ever lose a kid.
Tough luck. They should probably consider dropping to D-1AA (errr... FCS). Or, better yet, NAIA.
They're going to have people coming out of the stands to play for them next year, if anyone shows up to watch their games.
My FBS chance at glory! at long last! Carrier Dome here I come...
(do they still play there?)
If you can call what they do "playing".
Surely this is because they were not recruiting the state of Michigan hard enough and are getting pummeled instate by Saintonio.
Damn that's a lot. I hope it speaks to how much Robinson engenders respect and love from his players. Or that Maronne just sucks.
Just as Samson lost his extraordinary strength when Delilah cut his locks, so too did Syracuse when they lost GERG's glorious hair.
hmmm I wonder if I can get the GERG to help me with the hair issue...but then I would have to change my login name to ImpeccablyCoifedBill.
Are any of these guys good and would they consider following Robinson or have all of them found other schools already?
"Are any of these guys good?" and "Syracuse Players" don't go together. They do not make sense in the question and answer format.
In actuality, a few of them probably don't SUCK, but certainly aren't going to be upgrades.
Considering they had a DB commit to play for CENTRAL Michigan last year, I'm gonna go with no.
Did Maronne "run off" all these players too? From all the troll BS I've seen, Rodriguez "encouraged" every transfer in a soundproof room with hot lights, buckets of water, and brass knuckles. Family values must be plummeting in college football programs across the country.
oh wow....they're losing Cornelius Buttcheeks too......they'll never recover.
I blame Scott Shafer.
start a "Maronnezized" thread.
Nobody blames it on Schafer? Nobody?
