The Big East has silenced the critics

Officially the Big East is no longer the patsy conference. This last
week the Big East has proven its equality, if not its outright
superiority over many of the so-called "majors." It does deserve a
place in the BCS. Rutgers deserves to play the Michigan in the title
game (as they will certainly defeat tO$U like a veritable drum).

Although Saturday was billed as the day for the SEC, the only teams
that emerged as quasi-contenders were: 1) Florida who pulled a game
from their sphincter and proved within a shadow of a doubt that Urban
Florida lives in the shadow of Lake Spurrier and 2) Arkansas for just
play ol' dumb luck and a soft SEC schedule. Both teams will lose at
least one more time.

All the ACC can offer is Wake Forest. All of the talk of super
conference is down to the sound of a street corner of crickets. WF is a
paper tiger, and has beaten nobody of noteworthiness. Miami? F$U?
Clemson? Puh-leeze. All duds and on the outside looking in.

The Big XII? Contenders? Nope, only pretenders. Nary a one-loss team
thanks to Texas' glamorous "Brother-Can-You-Spare-A-Dime?" performance
against K-State.

And how about the mighty Pac 10? U$C is a has been, and will further
prove its mediocrity by losing to Cal next week. This will be the same
Cal who rolled into Zona yesterday and offered yet further proof that
they are the definitive underachievers for the new millenium.

The one team who I will give praise is Notre Dame. They have scheduled
with more fortitude than the "regular season" scheduling of the
aforementioned lamers (SEC, ACC, etc.) If they were to be aligned with
a conference it would rightfully be with either the Big 10 or the Big
East. Although obviously geographically correct, it swould align them
nicely with where the TRUE power base has shifted to in college
football.

Rutgers has to get by W ***ia first.  I think it's likely that the
Big East will have 3 one loss teams.  I'm not sure who then would get
the BCS bowl bid.  No matter what, the Big East will get a HUGE chance
to silence skeptics in the postseason.  They should land games against
the SEC teams which have been doing the most Big East putdown trash
talking.

P.S. Louisville was able to get by without Michael Bush all year, but
his absence was the difference against Rutgers.  Louisville desperately
needed a big time ground threat in the second half to take the heat off
of Brohm.  As it is, Rutgers showed how to beat Lousville.  Pass rush
big time.

Now I'm confused.  I never thought that Jaros was Maria...

At first I read that as "the pasty conference".

     Something tells me you aren't talking about
calzone-like pastry shells stuffed with meat
and potatoes fed to Welsh miners.

     The best part of this bate was the most subtle,
like leaving VPI out altogether when talking about
the ACC.
