1) SEC. No contest.
2) USC & The Pac-9. Yes, I meant to write it this way.
4) The Big East. West Virginia, Louisville, Rutgers and company want all of you to know they're back and they don't need Miami and Boston College who are doing rather mediocrely in the ACC.
5) The Big 12. The South division is straight tough, but the mediocrity of the North is comparable to the JV Conference of the NBA.
6) The Big 10.
So how is the Big East greater than the Big Ten? Let L count the ways...
- The Big East went undefeated last year in bowl games. Its big three schools went 3-0 compared to the big three in the Big Ten which were punked harder than Zach Braff by Ashton Kutcher.
- No Big East school has ever been ranked in the Top 5 and lost to a FCS school.
- No Big East school has ever been ranked in the Top 10 and lost to a FCS school.
- No...should I continue? Okay then.
Michigan pretty much killed their national championship hopes in a game that was supposed to be a tuneup. A scrimmage with cameras and a packed Big House. I've always been against BCS teams playing FCS teams, I always have. Not because I ever thought something like this could happen, but because I think it's pretty lame that a Florida can't play in-state teams like Central or South Florida. That Ohio State can't give Cincinatti a shot or Michigan can't give Western Michigan its fair shake. After today, me thinks teams will think twice before scheduling Appalachian State for a tune up.
As for Lloyd Carr, well, I'll get to him in a bit with my letter to him. But, wow! How many steps back does the Big Ten take when its highest ranked team can't even beat an FCS school at home? If I'm Oregon and Notre Dame, I'm licking my chops at the prospect of facing the school that couldn't beat the Mountaineers. Oh, and Ohio State, that 'School Up North' may as well be Akron North to you chaps. You can kill them even without Troy Smith and company. Good grief. Go Big East. Go home Big Ten.
