Obviously, I don't want to stay in this version of the Big East. SEC, WVU is going to get their butt kicked a little bit until they start getting SEC caliber athletes on the defensive side of the ball, but ultimately their football program will be stronger because of it. Also, if I have the choice between watching a WVU/Rutgers game, and a WVU/Alabama game.
If I had a choice, I would want to be in the SEC.
Yes I despise the ACC that much.
Penn State isn't leaving the B10, forget about it. I don't care how much money NBC wants to throw at them to get them to do it, its going to be tough to realistically beat what the BTN and the BT TV deals bring them, then on top of them, they'd loss their affiliation w/ the B10 AAU members and revenue sharing thru research, which from reports I've read, dwarf the amount of money brought in thru sports.
As I just posted on another thread, it looks like Boise is coming. There recent history may be enough to keep the BCS bid in the Big East. I'm a Louisville fan, and generally dislike WVU, but I am cheering for the 'Neers to run the conference this year and finish in the T-op 10. As long as UofL is in the Big East, I need to keep the best interest of the conference in mind, and that is a team in the Top 10.
What if this is as good as it gets?
So much for giving Syracuse a nice ACC sendoff courtesy of 500+ yards of offense. (a friend of mine said that earlier this week, I am going to bring that up tomorrow for sure. )
The officiating sucked, but Geno was awful tonight. I don't know if playing in a dome affected him or what but his passes floated in the air just waiting to be picked.
Seemed like WVU just waited for a bailout that never came. I thought WVU would come back and win it when they marched down the field on the first possession of the second half. Once Syracuse went up on the next possession, its just like the team rolled over and quit (save Starks TD catch in the 4th quarter).
If I am a WVU fan I would be a bit alarmed right now. Rutgers isn't looking too bad right now and with road trips to Cincinnati and South Florida left to go, they could end up dropping more games than originally thought.
Either way, Doug Marrone has WVU's number.
Wow! Someone got taken to the wood shed last night.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
