Big East Philosophy: Cincy and Rutgers breakout on Step Up Saturday

Pittsburgh, West Virginia, and even Connecticut separated themselves on what I coined (rather successfully mind you) Step Up Saturday! Week 12 in the Big East was as big a weekend the conference has had all year. All eight league teams were in action against each other and, every game but one (the lone exception happened […]

Big East Philosophy, Week 11: Call the medic

Week 11 in the Big East will have multiple Saturday games! Unlike last ‘weekend’ for the conference, which started on a Wednesday, where one game was played on Saturday, this time we have three games to chose from! The four total games for the Big East this weekend will once again have a heavy emphasis […]

Big East Philosophy Week 9 review – DE-FENSE and a couple big injuries

It wasn’t exactly an offensive explosion in the Big East for Week 9. In fact the offense was borderline offensive.

Actually, with the Big East consisting of only eight teams […]

Big East Philosophy: Nowhere to go but up!

After three weeks of losing to the likes of Utah and Washington while beating bottom feeders like Akron and New Hampshire the Big East has a major chance to prove it’s collective worth as a BCS conference. Three Big East teams play ranked foes, while another plays a team with bowl hopes (albeit slim hopes). […]

Big East Philosophy: Mountaineers stand at peak

Finally, three weeks into the season, Big East fantasy football players (and the Big East in general) have found their ‘team.’ The conference itself had another collective losing weekend (2-3, with one win coming against FCS Maine), but the West Virginia Mountaineers seem to have separated themselves from the rest of the pack. WVU beat […]
