Here we are about ten weeks or so into the College Football season, and one of the most amazing magic acts is the Big East. West Virginia, Rutgers and Louisville have all pulled "tricks" out of their hat to revolve around the top of the BCS rankings. I'm starting to wonder if there was a secret deal in place. "Hey, WV - you win you're first set of games. Then, we'll have the Cardinals upset you so that the nation will start taking the Big East seriously. And Rutgers, make sure you lose that game against Louisville, so that they can go to the Championship game. What's that? Our teams aren't strong enough to rank 4th in the Big Ten? Don't worry - smoke and mirrors man!"
Too bad for the Big East consipirators, Rutgers accidently won their game against Louisville - spinning the conference back to the drawing room floor. But, Rutgers will most certainly accidently be beaten by WV.
Am I the only one that looks at UConn football, with it's Thursday night games and 26k attendence, poor uniforms, and think I'm watching a scene from Friday Night Lights? And the South Florida Bulls? Is Burt Reynolds on that team? There are 3 schools in that conference that should rebel and just leave the conference - Syracuse, West Virginia and Pittsburgh. As a matter of fact, how about a trade? Big Ten sends Indiana, Northwestern and Minnesota to the Big East for the three Big East teams above. Would anyone notice?
