It was only a month ago that Wyoming coach Joe Glenn ripped Syracuse a new one after the Orange backed out of a 2009 game at Laramie.
"I've got a new favorite team this season," Glenn quipped. "Anybody who beats Syracuse."
Austin Ward of the Casper Star-Tribune writes that Glenn was back at it Saturday after the Cowboys battered Virginia, 23-3.
"If this was a heavyweight fight, we threw the first punch and we threw the last punch," Glenn said. "We punched throughout the fight. We just out-played them in every sense of the word."
He was just getting started.
"It would have been a shutout had their punter not been so good. The Pokes were way too much for the Cavaliers. A Cowboy is tougher than a Cavalier anyway, we all know that."
Glenn's players joined in the fun after the Cavaliers were held to 110 yards.
"The only thing I was surprised about is that they scored," running back Devin Moore said. "I’m not trying to be cocky or bad-talk Virginia, but I just believe so much in our defense. It's so dominant."
To make matters worse for Virginia, our friends at Coaches Hot Seat now have Al Groh at the top of their list, edging past Michigan's Lloyd Carr and Mississippi State's Sylvester Croom. Arkansas' Houston Nutt slips to No. 4, followed by Notre Dame's Crewcut Charlie Weis, who figures to move up the list after his team gets ambushed Saturday at Penn State.
