If you're talking about us being prepared against Bethune, we didn't look prepared in that game, at all. Remember, it was 14-0 well into the second quarter before we exploded. At one point they showed Manny on the sideline and he looked clueless as to why we weren't burying Bethune. It was simple. We were not prepared.Babers went 4-8, 4-8, 10-3. So two horrendous seasons before his 10 win season. Syracuse had the patience because, well, it's Syracuse football. I GUARANTEE that at Miami he would be canned after year 2 if he went two seasons in a row at 4-8.
The problem with Diaz is that the team looks totally unprepared despite having talent advantage in all but 1 game, whereas Syracuse's poor record likely has a lot to do with the talent level.
