25 things I'm excited for in the Big East

August 27, 2008 4:00 PM

Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett

Stay frosty, people. Our long summer of waiting ends tomorrow night. While we'd all gladly take any college football right now, here are the 25 things I'm most excited about seeing this year in the Big East.

The USF-related items...

4. Matt Grothe on the run.

The South Florida quarterback says he wants to think more and make better decisions this year. But it's so much fun watching Grothe improvise out of the pocket and make plays that few other QBs would even try.

7. George Selvie on the attack.

The South Florida defensive end is a joy to watch because of his relentless effort -- unless you happen to play for the opposing offense. He has set 20 sacks as his goal this year, and I wouldn't bet against him.

13. The Big East's big finish.

There's no conference title game, but the league has done a great job of scheduling marquee games late in the year. The South Florida-West Virginia season finale on Dec. 6 looks like a classic waiting to happen.

18. Weeknight football

Who needs Saturdays? The Big East has long been at the forefront of the nontraditional game day. This year brings two games on a Sunday, one each on a Monday and Wednesday, eight on a Thursday and seven on a Friday. You can argue the merits of such scheduling -- especially what Friday night games do to the local high school scene -- but in the end it means more college football for you to see. And it sure beats watching singing and dancing competitions.

19. The South Florida Sun Dolls.

'Nuff said.
