Any suggestions? Right off the bat the following are ruled out: Penn State (the wife is a native Nittany Lion); Boston College (Big East turncoats); Southern Cal (why root for US Steel?).
Last Saturday, the atmosphere outside and inside the Carrier Dome was electric; the tailgate parties were effusive; the streets were jammed with people having a great time before the Penn State game. Then the game started.
So Boston College is out because they saw the Big East for what it was, a sinking ship. Was it OK for Miami and Virginia Tech to bail out also??
Seems to me you are bailing on Syracuse.
