They have more football history in their left cheek than LSU
Silly arse statement. If anything, one might could argue their history up until this decade sort of mirrors LSU, as both teams sort of shared national heydays in the late Fifties. What LSU has accomplished over the past decade, probably exceeds what Syracuse did in the 90s (although, they admittedly had a nice run, then). You can't compare the passion of the two fan bases.
And yeah, I suppose Jim Brown and possibly Ernie Davis are > than any LSU players, but that's about it, on what you could say they have history-wise over LSU.
