Well, well, well. The Syracuse University Orange won a football game last night, defeating the Louisville Cardinals 28-21. The win improved the Orange to 2-6 on the season and kept slim hopes alive for a post season bowl game.
The game was also a likely stay of execution for Greg Robinson, as it has been talked about ad naseaum that his firing is not a question of if but a question of when. But while Greg may have survived the axe this week, there appear to be some new targets this week for executioner in the Big East.
With a loss this week to Cincinnati, South Florida coach Jim Levitt should find himself directly in the cross hairs of the exectioner. How in the world does a team that was predicted by many to represent the Big East in the BCS bowl game, fall to 1-3 in conference and tied with you know who for LAST PLACE in the Big East? While he should be given credit for rising the profile of South Florida football from backwater to BCS, the alarming losses the last two years should be a sign that Levitt is merely a good coach and not a great one. How long should he last at USF?
