2008 Big East Predictions

by Robert Ferringo - 08/23/2008

The Big East is the most underrated football conference in the country, and over the last two years I feel that it has been a better football conference than the Big Ten or the ACC.

I've been saying that for two years now, and for two years the general college football public has ignored this fact. Some might say that I'm biased or that I'm a homer. It's true that I hail from Big East country, but in my profession I don't have the luxury of "bias". I need to be an objective observer of sport and I'm simply offering up my hypothesis based on the empirical data. And what the numbers - and my own experience - has told me is that this league is still the most profitable and least heralded of the Big 6 BCS conferences.


With that in mind here's my 2008 Big East predictions:


The Challenger: South Florida

The Bulls are my pick to win the Big East and a home game against Kansas in September could give them a resume worthy of a trip to the national title game. The Bulls welcome back 10 offensive starters, including stud QB Matt Grothe, all of their skill players, and four of five members of a rugged offensive line. Defensively, conference POY George Selvie anchors the best front seven in the league. This team is suspect at the corner spots, and against a lot of experienced receivers in this league that will be something to watch. USF gets Pitt, Rutgers, and Connecticut at home this year and could be undefeated for a Dec. 6 matchup at West Virginia that could decide the conference champ.
