Of all the teams in the Big East, I think the only one that could hang with an SEC power would be South Florida.
Speed is the name of the game in the SEC. Rich Brooks made the comment that when he took over at Kentucky, he didn't have a player who could run under 4.40, now he has fifteen. WVU for example has speed on offense, but doesn't have it on defense. If you want to see how to stop Steve Slaton, watch tapes of the South Florida game.
The real question is, has teams from the Big East played anybody out of conference?
