Florida big man Patric Young had an interesting reaction after hearing that No. 1 Syracuse had lost its first game of the season to unranked Boston College. The Gators had just survived a battle of their own against unranked Auburn when Young was given the news. Via The Alligator’s Landon Watnick:
Patric Young surprised to hear Syracuse lost to BC. “Boston College? They suck.”

While Young’s Gators haven’t played BC this season, he’s clearly using the Eagles’ 7-19 record as his basis.
Florida’s two losses this season – UConn and Wisconsin – were both to ranked foes. That being said, if SU is able to knock off No. 5 Duke in Durham this Saturday, it’ll be interesting to see which program is voted No. 1 come Monday.
