    Re: Big East Football

    The Big East bumped the ACC for the #5 spot among the 6 BCS conferences this week according to Jeff Sagarin. The ACC had an absolutely atrocious weekend with Miami losing to K-State, NC State getting drilled by UC, Maryland getting thumped by Temple (!) and UVA losing to USM. The funny thing is that moving Pitt and Syracuse over to the ACC column in the rankings actually widens the Big East's lead in the rankings.

    Is it wrong that this made me laugh out loud? Probably, but I might as well laugh now; things could be about to get very, very bad.

    I'm a big time Marquette fan and Im a bit worried as to what the demise of the Big East will mean to their future. My advise to Marquette- find 20 guys on campus and form a football team. You can't be any worse than Syracuse.
    Then join the ACC.

    Wait, isn't that what Villanova did?
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    A suggestion was made in another thread that I like.

    The basketball only Catholic schools in the Big East (minus Notre Dame) should band together and form their own basketball only conference and add other Catholic schools (Xavier)

    Marquette
    Georgetown
    Seton Hall
    Providence
    DePaul
    Villanova
    St Johns
    Xavier

    It would be a small conference, but not too geographically taxing and would provide some great basketball.

    Re: Big East Football

    UConn seems to have called this meeting of the football presidents Sunday. First rumors from Sporting News is that its to vote on Temple being invited for all sports. Others are saying its a call to tie up any loose ends on a mass exodus of the Big East:

    WVU to SEC
    UC, Louisville, TCU, USF to Big 12
    UConn and Rutgers to ACC or Big 10.

    And thus making the buyout and waiting period a moot point as there will be no big east football if the mass exodus is true.

    After seeing Pitt, USF, and WVU play this year I don't think any of them are head and shoulders better than Cincinnati. It'd be nice to win the conference again.

    I think WVU is the best by a large margin. After that, I see 7 teams that are all capable of beating/losing to every team in the conference.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    Maybe 6. Unfortunately I think Louisville is worst by a relatively wide margin. Hope I'm wrong, but I'll be pretty surprised if Louisville wins more than 2 league games.

    WVU isn't going to the SEC. They have no TV market, no recruiting base, horrible academics and a fan base that has a dismal national reputation. People can keep dreaming, but it's not going to happen.
    Pessimists are well informed optimists

    TV market I grant you besides the fact we get more of Pittsburgh than Pitt does and a share of DC. Not to mention most of the SEC was built on such outstanding TV markets!

    Yes Maryland, Tidewater (Va), Ohio, Western Pa, Jersey don't ever produce anything for Division 1 football.

    Dismal National Reputation? I saw an article (don't have a link) that we were top 20 in highest merchandise sales in the nation.

    UC's O-Line is terrible. The RT just completely whiffed and gave up a sack. I get getting beat every now and then, but how can you just totally miss a guy that's coming at you?

    Very carefully....

    This game has been tough to watch though.

    Yeah you just gotta wonder what Collaros could do with a real line to protect him. Every single time he drops back he's having to avoid the rush before he plants his back foot.
