How bad is the Big East

How bad is the Big Easy, I mean East?

Pitt lost- Predicted conference champ

Uconn lost bad to a middle of the pack Big 10 team- Predicted 2nd, with some saying maybe the conference champ.

Cincinnati was manhandled by Fresno ST- The 2 time defending Big East Champs.

WVU was leading Coastal Carolina 10-0 at the half before winning 31-0.

I think this is without a doubt, the worst BCS conference this year.

Thoughts?

For the past 5 years the Big East has been better than most of the BCS conferences excluding the SEC. Dont worry though they wont be around to much longer. I give the conference 2-3 years before they lose their football schools.

I dont see how you can say they've been better then most, when the past 2 years they havent won a BCS game. Last year their top team was destroyed by Florida, and their #2 team WVU, lost to the ACC #6 team Florida ST.

Well if you think a conference is strong when their top teams get embarrassed, go right ahead.

I think the Big East is still the best BCS conference not named ACC, SEC, Big 12 or Big Ten. While they have struggled to win their BCS bowls in recent years, they still have depth that the MWC, even with its recent "explosion" onto the scene still lacks.

The Mountain West has TCU, Utah, (pending) Boise State and (tentatively) BYU. Other than that, none of the other schools have really made an impact on the national stage.

Meanwhile, the Big East has as recently as five years ago had WVU, Pitt, USF, Rutgers and Cincinnati who all, at one time or another, were (and for some, still are) contenders.

That means nothing. VT and Miami were still in the conference in 2000-2003. So whats your point?

And yes I agree they're better then the Mountain West and WAC, but not better then any other BCS conference. USF always starts strong but fades every year, and Rutgers had 1 decent season. After Miami left, WVU is the only consistent winner in the conference.

Big East 32-19 Against BCS conference teams. So take away VT and Miami's wins and that is still great.

Funny coming from some whose team is in the Big 10. You asked for proof I showed it. Ohio St has been eating off the gravy train for along time. Care to show how the Big East has done against the Big 10?

ACC fans have no room to talk as yall havent done squat since raiding the Big East.

3 years out of 9 is pretty big dude, 33%. Take out Miami and VT wins, and how many do you get? Its funny you want to give the Big East credit for teams that dont even play in the conference!

You have no proof. You tried to sell me fools gold and I saw right through it. It's hilarious you only show the past 4 years, like football wasnt played before then. What happend from 2000-2005 since you want to add Miami and VT?

What gravy train is that? The do you really want to compare Ohio ST to the Big East teams? By all means go ahead. Let me know how that goes.

And to answer your question about the Big 10 vs the Big East, the Big 10 holds a 46 to 25 lead, 64.8%. http://mcubed.net/ncaaf/tvc/big10/index.shtml

Its simple math 32-19 from 2000 to 2009. So you are saying miami and VT won most of those. Well Miami was 3-1 VT was 2-2 for a total of 5-3. Take those away and you still have a record of 27-16. Simple math But I still like how you are throwing rocks when your house is made of glass. The Big 10 has been sucking for awhile now.
