How Many Minutes Did Syracuse Have the Lead In the Greg Robinson Era?

Yesterday the 2008 Syracuse Orange football team finished their season with a 30-10 loss in Cincinnati, finally bringing to an end the Greg Robinson Era. Syracuse didn’t have any shot yesterday and never held a lead over the Bearcats.

This was the fifth time this year Syracuse never held a lead in a game, which got me wondering what the total amount of time Robinson’s teams actually held a lead during the past four years. Lets just say it isn’t that surprising that a team with such a poor record would hold a lead so rarely. Just another thing to show how bad the program was under Robinson. Home games are in caps.

2005: In G-Rob’s first year, the Orange held a lead in just over 98 out of a possible 660 minutes (or 14.87% of the time). The only game in which they held a lead for a majority of the game was the win over Buffalo.

2006: The most successful year of the Robinson Era (4 wins) featured the most time with a lead (surprise!). The Orange were in front for almost 190 out of a possible 720 minutes (26.38%). They had the lead for a majority of the Illinois, Miami (OH) and UConn victories.

2007: The Orange only held a lead 16.35% of the time in 07, never holding a lead in seven games. It did however feature the stunning Louisville game, which the Orange led almost wire-to-wire.

2008: Robinson’s final team provided some interesting numbers. They held the lead 26.35% of the time, second best in the G-Rob years. They also had the least amount of time in a victory (Notre Dame) and the most time with a lead in a loss (Pitt).

Syracuse never led in 20 out 47 games the last four seasons.
