Friday the Syracuse Orange will play its first game of the season against Western Michigan. With little time to go, it's time to take a look at Syracuse's rank in the ACC Power Rankings courtesy of Chris Carlson, writer for Syracuse.com.
With last year's record being 4-8, I see why Syracuse is ranked so low. The one thing you can't rule out of this team is never backing down.
Dino Babers is the heart and soul and they competed even against the most formidable opponents last year. Let's not forget the win against No. 2 Clemson!
Look for them to keep the same momentum into this year. They could be a lot better than what this ranking says.
