Syracuse hasn't been good for a while now, and Rutgers has a long way to go before being considered. I forgot about Pitt though. Im not arguing talent anyway...only football talent.

The 'Cuse will be back and sooner than people think. We have a coach that will bring the program back to what it was. Too much tradition and pride to stay down for too long.

You may be right, but as long as they are in that conference there isn't much of anywhere to go......

i live in downeast maine and live for football, but it just isnt a big thing here, basketball is. one day i asked someone why that is- very simple explanation really. washington county is very poor. it costs a lot of money to put together a football team. doesnt cost much to buy one basketball and a couple peach baskets.

While the Big East is known more for Basketball, I think it will be fine. It is a school that has produced some very good players recently and possibly the best player to ever play the game in Jim Brown, among others. So, regardless of if they are in a conference or not, they won't be down for too long. Trust me....

I wish Syracuse the best, and hopefully for you guys your right. I admire loyal fans, and that's one thing I see you guys have. They are the most deserving for reward in my opinion, so im not trying to bring Syracuse down in anyway. The truth be told though, I just don't see them being a BCS team anytime within at least 10 years. If somehow they can convincingly pull off that #1 spot like West Virginia has claimed as of recently maybe so, but anything less than what we've seen out of that team before this season isn't going to be much worth praise.

Also the Rutgers team I will say has made a VERY impressive turn around in their program, but that's all that is impressive about it in my opinion. They are consistently as of recent ranked in the top 3 or 4 in the Big East rather than the cellar dwellars of the past. Averaging 9 wins in the Big East to me is no more impressive than a 4 or 5 win season in the Big 12, or SEC.

My opinion the only school who can name themseleves amongst the likes of the Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, LSU, Arkansas, Alabama, Florida State, Miami, USC, Tennessee, A&M, and Georgia's of the South would be Penn State......
