Well these sleeper blogs are starting to get a little old to write, but you have to do what you have to do.
My sleeperr for the Big East is (Drum roll please)................ The Rutgers Scarlet Knights,
Rutgers lost Rayrice, but are still going to have a good running game, look ofr themto use a 3 man combination of backs in Kordell Young, Jourdan Brooks, and Jabu Loveance. The combination of these three will makeup for the second best rushing attck in the Big East. What you really want to watch this season is the assing game, they are bringing back a great senior at QB Mike Teel. And to help him out they are bringing back all 3 of there leading WR from last season. Look for Tiquan Underwood to be the best WR in the Big East this season. Rutgers also made it aparant in there spring game that they wanted to try to get the ball to Senior TE Keven Brock alot this season. Look for Rutgers Passing Attack to be much better than in previous years this season. Rutgers is also bringing back 4 of 5 starters on the O-line, so don't be suprised if they poundit out on the ground alot this season.
Rutgers is bringing 8 starters on the defensive side of the ball, that will make for a great defense considering that Rutgers ranked 17th in the nation in total defense last season and is getting most of it's players back. The Biggest stregth is gonna be the secondary. They ranked 5th in the nation last year in preventing the pass and are bring back both corners and two senior safties. On the D-line they will be a very dominant squad, look for Rutgers to have 5 capable players who all sub in and out. Rutgers will have the best defense in the big east.
Let's take a look at Rutgers schedule, as you know a star by potential losses.
9/01Fresno State W9/11North Carolina *9/20@ Navy W9/27Morgan State W10/04@ West Virginia *10/11@ Cincinnati W10/18Connecticut W10/25@ Pittsburgh *11/08Syracuse W11/15@ South Florida *11/22Army W12/04LouisvilleW
My worse case scenario for Rutgers is a 8-4 year, but they could very well go 11-1.
