In a dome, no less.At Syracuse, offense is an illusion.
Honestly, it's offensive. :rim shot:
This is so exhausting.Uh yes it does ... which is why a majority of the top defenses in the NCAA are above .500 ... because defense travels well and is a consistent presence even on the road. Ohio is above .500 for crying out loud and a top 20 defense ... not Ohio State but Ohio, we would kill to have their record with our "offensive" guru.
Why do you believe Syracuse can consistently game by game field a top flight defense that "travels?" What gets us there? What advantage does our program have that it can leverage to stand out on defense? People point to the factories but they can get defensive talent we can't and won't.
Keep in mind, if you think we've had good defenses recently, we still have not had the same coach take us to bowls in consecutive seasons since Pasqualoni. So they haven't accomplished much. And I'd argue that's because the tradeoff isn't actually that we get good defense. What we get is coaching that favors the defense. And that's a losing way to play on college football today.
