cincy is breakin in a new qb; dont know why you have them 1st

dont know why you say you have a rugters bias; thats right around where they're predicted to finish

i think it comes down to wvu vs usf

1. UCONN
2. USF
3. Cincinatti
4. WVU
5. Pitt
6. Rutgers
7. Cuse
8. Louisville

I think Uconn only loses one game, With lesean mccoy, and many other talented players like devine, white, teel, etc...Big East is tougher than most give credit. of course i may be bias, i just think UCONN is cooler than the other side of the pillow....Lots of youth, speed, talent, and now EXPERIENCE.....after USF, Rutgers, and Cinci makes a name for themselves, the Co-Big East Champs return to do damage....

To do this...look for Dixon and Brown to EACH have 1,000 yards.....
Lutrus continues to show his 1st team all american freshmen talent improving to become the Big East Defensive player of the year...Darius Butler plays both ways and scores mult. TDs on O and D

So you'll beat USF, at home, in late November when the games mean most? Pretty tall order.

maybe uconn can beat wvu if they hold us to under 30

maybe under 60 this year

lorenzen is nothing more than a bus driver; wvu's defense is faster than last year and you saw what happened; it also is designed to stop the run

and your back-up qbs are nothing special; frazier hasnt taken a snap, and endres isnt that good

dont they still have that guy from last year with the weird name?

Well I always wanted to go to JMU since im from Va and my grades sucked so I did a year of Community College. Then I went to WVU to visit friends and I said theres no way I'm not coming here, haha. Im going to enter as a sophomore in Broadcasting I think and am living in a town house with some friends who already go there. Do you go there?

SU is winning 5 games this year. I don't know where that puts us, but we are getting 5.

man you guys dont like UofL. But im telling you all, we will not be that bad next year. we will be top three. no question. Brohm now has complete control of the offense, English is kicking *** on defense. we have a RB that now fits our system. we have the pieces in to succeed. im not saying that they will make a BCS bowl. but we will not be in last place.

Brohm was drafted by the packers....English's first year, and your D is still in shambles.

Hey Kwilk my friend told me they carry all the steelers games there but I know thats on cbs do you know if they carry the skins or eagles games mostly on fox?

roidrunner
04-30-2008, 04:06 PM
be have beaumont and spillman taking over at those positions, plus Urritia's brother is also on the team, who i hear is faster than his brother, and not as much of a head case

yea, 2 cbs stations--channel 2 is the pittsburgh one, channel 5 is the baltimore one

mostly skins---we're pretty close to washington

its good though, cuz theres always 2 games on

lawlz at anyone putting RU not top 3. srsly, it's a 3 team race between WVA, RU and either USF/Uconn(but I'm leaning towards UCONN)

and cincy? really? psssshaa yea, ok. and louisvile is gonna be worse this year than last. Last year I called them having a very off year, and everyone was like "lolz, ur just a dumb n00b RU homerz" but I was right. THeir D is still poop, they still won't have much of a running game, and they lost their top 2 WRs and starting QB. And it's tough to win games when you're too busy kissing your teammates, which means RU is the easy favorite since we're the only Big East team who doesnt do that. (except maybe Cuse, I feel bad for them)

With no defense, and no OL to speak of.

With no defense, and no OL to speak of.

Ryan Durand is solid on the O-Line and a good NFL prospect but I agree our o-line as a whole is pretty terrible. Our defense has potential though. Our D-line is the strength of our D with Jones and Gilbeaux and our LB core should be alot faster this year (major problem last year). DB's are solid with Holmes and AJ Brown. I think we can give you guys a good game this year.

Memphis and ECU add nothing to the Big East.

roidrunner
05-18-2008, 06:26 PM
i think the belief would be ECU for football, and Memphis for Basketball. The would atleast make one hell of a Basketball conference

Forenci
05-18-2008, 11:58 PM
Memphis would give us the best conference in basketball by a mile. I personally still feel it's better than the Pac-10 despite what some people say, but in terms of basketball we would be superb.

By the way, does anyone NOT have their team ranked as the top ranked team? Lol.

Personally I see UConn finishing third or fourth in the Big East, but who knows? We beat most of your team last year. Hah!

I'm not over doing it when I say this, but we probably have the second best football facilities after Oregon. They are that awesome. I really think that it will go a long way for our recruiting in the near future.

uconn got very lucky vs ul and temple

also outscored on the year (i think)

i think they have a drastic falloff---like 5th/6th

behind wvu, usf, pitt, rugters, and possibly ul/cincy

Meh, people said the same thing last year, and luck has nothing to do with winning. Good teams make their own luck. We're just overlooked because we're not a power house in football right now.

We'll surprise I would say.

UConn also got "lucky" in the sense that our ST were terrible last year. We will convincingly beat them this year.

and will never be a powerhouse

if luck is getting a help from the refs on a fair catch call leading to a td, then yea thats luck

if luck is the refs clearly saying no td, when the receiver clearly has a foot inbounds, then yea

Cool thanks, the espn definetly is missing a lot. But for the most part I knew most these guys, more excited about the 2009 class but overall we are bringing in some talent at the rb and o-line posistion this year.
