I selfishly pick out what I think are key games of interest each week of the upcoming season and then cleverly demonstrate how witty I am as I write about them.Week 3 is the Big EastÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s week. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a make or break week for BE out of conference play. Opportunities abound for BE bragginÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ rights. So letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s get ready to RUMBLE!!!!! Big East week starts on Thursday night.Thursday, September 11 (has it been 7 years already?) UNC @ Rutgers - Remember how much of a pummeling we put on the Tar Heels last season? It should be interesting to tune into ESPN Thursday night to see this game. Can the Riceless Ruby Kanights dump the Heels at home like we did last season? Does Butch have the Heels ready for prime time? We shall see.Friday, September 12Kansas @ USF Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Just a little fracas down at Ray Jay Stadium on ESPN2. This is the Super Bowl, before the Super Bowl. We owe the basketball school a punch in the nose. If USF wants to be prime time, this is our game for early season Ã¢â‚¬Ëœ08 (repeat after me, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Auburn Ã¢â‚¬Ëœ07, Auburn Ã¢â‚¬Ëœ07, Auburn Ã¢â‚¬Ëœ07Ã¢â‚¬Â).Saturday, September 13Virginia @ UConn Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Woe ho, the Puppies have a REAL game this week. No more Purina Puppy Chow on the menu for the Connvicts. They better bring their good Ã¢â‚¬Å“DÃ¢â‚¬Â game to uphold the BE brand. Now FETCH puppy.Penn State @ Syracuse Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Hide your women and children. This ainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t your gandpaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Syracuse Orangemen. JoePa never had it so easy against the Orange when he could see without coke bottle bottoms in front of his eyes. I can hear JoePa at halftime, Ã¢â‚¬Å“This is Syracuse? Jim Brown, Floyd Little, Larry Csonka, Donovan McNabb Syracuse? Really????Ã¢â‚¬ÂArkansas @ Texas Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I used to love this game in the old Southwest Conference days when I was a kid. The question of today is, Ã¢â‚¬ËœWill Coach Petrino still be coach of the Hogs by the time this game rolls around, or will he have moved on to Western Wyoming JC by this point in the season?Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Western Kentucky @ Alabama Ã¢â‚¬â€œ After LaMo (Louisiana-Monroe) knocked off the Tide last season, I guess anything is possible. What makes this scenario interesting is to see if Saban will be able to invent some new excuses for the Tide losing to such a mighty foe, which will mean heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have to justify his hefty salary once again.Michigan @ ND Ã¢â‚¬â€œ YawnÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.Remember when this game was relevant? Oh yeah, I suppose we need our old buddy RichRod and USF Coaching North to win this one for their old conference friends.Ohio State @ USC Ã¢â‚¬â€œ What the f______? I thought the Rose Bowl was played in January? The big question for this game is: Are the fans of the losing team going to chant, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Rematch, rematchÃ¢â‚¬Â after the game?The other Big East sissies you ask? They have the week off to preen and try to look purdy.There you have it. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Week 3 winning by a TKO. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hope some BE teams knock out their OOC opponents as we dizzily look ahead to Week 4 next week.Normal ;D 8) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
