College football rarely disappoints on a week-to-week basis, but sometimes the slate of games is less sexy than others. Many thought this week would be one of those quiet ones, without a single ranked vs. ranked matchup on the schedule and not a true marquee game to be found. Well, it's not even noon on Saturday and week seven is already LIT.
On Friday night, No. 2 ranked Clemson and No. 8 ranked Washington State went on the road as heavy favorites, Clemson by over 20 points at Syracuse and Wazzu by 17 points at California. They both lost their games outright in shocking fashion.
Syracuse fans that packed the Carrier Dome were rewarded with witnessing arguably the biggest win in the program's history, and the first over a team ranked that high in over 30 years. Understandably, head coach Dino Babers and his team were pretty excited about it in the locker room after the game, and Babers delivered possibly the best postgame speech by any coach so far this season:
OK, so maybe it was just an awesome chant in worship of the color orange, but you can't tell me you don't want to throw on a Syracuse helmet and run through a brick wall right now. For Babers, this is pretty standard procedure, and not the first time he's gone viral for a postgame speech:
Can Dino Babers come wake me up every morning and prepare me to attack the day? That'd be great, thanks.
