Syracuse? Really? Oranges and apples ...



I'm now indefinitely in the Charlotte airport, which means bonus blogging for you guys. US Airways is changing planes, which is a good thing, but there's no word on how long that will take.

This gives me time to reflect on the craziness that is Cincinnati-Syracuse. If you were worried about USF losing standing in the polls because the Bulls gave up 37 points to Pittsburgh, you should be able to rest easier. Syracuse -- the same Syracuse that rolled up 291 yards in a 41-10 home loss to USF -- is down 35-31 to the Bearcats not even halfway through the third quarter.

Orange quarterback Andrew Robinson has thrown for 367 yards and three touchdowns, and that turnover-crazy Cincy defense has yet to force so much as one. Cincy's Ben Mauk's been about as good as you can get -- 23-for-28 for 372 yards, four TDs, zero picks -- and he's only up four on the worst team in the league.
