2008 Big East Football Prediction

Everyone think UConn will take a big step down this year. But why? The Huskies return a ton of starters, including a solid quarterback. Everyone is very high on Pitt. But why? Other than beating West Virginia, they were terrible last year. And their coach isn't very good. Their running back, LeSean McCoy is neck-in-neck with Noel Devine for the title of best running back in the Big East, but their quarterback lacks skill. Either way, it will be interesting to see who finishes second to West Virginia this year.

Big East Standings
1. West Virginia
2. South Florida
3. Connecticut
(HUUUUUUUGE dropoff)
4. Pittsburgh
5. Cincinnati
6. Louisville
7. Rutgers
8. Syracuse

- I'm putting UConn at No. 3 by default. Even if people think they won't be as good as last year, they're still good enough to finish third in this league. West Virginia will lose a game, to who, I don't know. They just seem to find a way to lose games they aren't supposed to in this league. However, they won't lose to the Bulls. All the preseason talk about how the Bulls have WVU's number means the Mountaineers will beat them by a lot of points.
