I like the ranking and her justification. It is funny that she believes we'll be favored in at least four of our five remaining games, citing Cincy's performance at that time. She obviously missed the Vegas line having us as dogs.
This is to be expected. Imagine you're UConn or Rutgers. UConn goes to the Fiesta Bowl, wins the hoops national championship, then gets left out in the cold. Rutgers beats Syracuse and everyone still thinks SU is still better.
Those fans have to be thinking what do we have to do?
The answer, of course, is that there is nothing you can do, other than maybe find a less upsetting hobby.
I do give her credit for clarifying that the weekly ratings are based on the performance over the weekend primarily, nothing more. These are her opinions and she will remain the one ESPN blogger who refused to recognize Syracuse' improvement last season leaving us off her bowl lists. Still, it is good to see us near the top instead of the bottom of the list.
