Dino Babers keeps making the dopest postgame speeches after big Syracuse victories

He’s now dropped one awesome speech after knocking off a traditional ACC opponent per year.

Syracuse third-year head coach Dino Babers is steadily building a successful program in New York. Over the last three years, his teams have had some pretty significant wins at home in the Carrier Dome — most notably, his team upset Clemson on a Friday night in 2017.

His other big wins include the upset victory over Virginia Tech in 2016 and the win over Florida State in 2018, which marked the program’s first win over the Noles since 1966, making it a big win even though FSU’s struggling.

After all three of these wins, Babers’ victory speeches have been incredible.

Here’s the Virginia Tech one, which marked the Orange’s first ACC win of the season:

“People don’t know what we went through. They don’t know about the Kumbaya meetings we had this week — they have no idea. We are together. We play as one, we win as one. Off the field, on the field, picnics to the classroom — we’re together!”

“They thought they were gonna come in here and just have an easy game. Somebody in Vegas told them they were gonna win by 20 to 23 points. They didn’t look into your heart, they didn’t look into my heart!”

After the win against Clemson, he talked about the environment in the Carrier Dome:

After the win over FSU, he expanded even further on that, by addressing the hot conditions inside the dome.

In case you aren’t aware, the Carrier Dome — yes, named after Carrier the air conditioning company — does not have AC. At certain parts of the game, the temp inside the arena went as high as 90 degrees, and several FSU players suffered cramps.

My favorite part is Babers talking about the weather super intensely:

“All week, Monday was in the 80s, then it got a little bit hotter, then we had the big hurricane come into the Carolinas and the heat index started raising up into Canada! The we jumped up to 89 today!?”

“Oh it was hot! Oh it was hot! somebody hand me some water, somebody let me hydrate!”

Hopefully, we’ll get some more of these during the season and beyond.
