Syracuse suffered a 28-6 loss to Louisville Friday night inside the Carrier Dome. During the post-game press conference, head coach Scott Shafer made a reference to ISIS that surprised many. He was asked about the emotions he feels during a game and this was his response.
"No despair," Shafer said. "I"m the luckiest guy alive. I see ISIS is out there cutting people's heads off. The real world has some major problems. Some major problems. And we're just so dog-gone lucky to be coaching and playing a sport and being criticized for not getting a call made with a couple seconds left in the game. Or getting criticized for not catching the dead pig with air in it. So, to me, life's pretty damn good. And I'm so lucky to be having to field these types of questions. I feel so blessed to be a football coach. Living the dream. Everyone once in a while it's uncomfortable, but thats' what makes the highs that much better."
