Yeah, just like the last time they played a big underdog Big East champion in the Fiesta Bowl. Oh, wait, they lost by 20 points in that game.

Well then certainly it would be like earlier this year, when they played Cincinnati, a team that went 4-8 playing in the Big East. Oh wait, Oklahoma won by two in a game that went down to the wire.

Oklahoma will very, very likely win the game, and they might even win by a lot. They'll almost certainly win. But UConn could pull it off. It's pretty hilarious how everyone just acts over and over again like the Big East teams haven't been in this situation before and won. And Oklahoma ain't that good, sorry to break it to everyone.

EDIT: And in case you want to respond by saying UConn will be a bigger underdog than West Virginia was in the 2008 Fiesta Bowl (Oklahoma was favored by eight going into that game, I've gotta think UConn will be given two touchdowns at least), I'll point to West Virginia in the 2006 Sugar Bowl against SEC champion Georgia. I think the Bulldogs were 16-point favorites in that game, and West Virginia won in what was basically a home game for Georgia because the Sugar Bowl was held in Atlanta that year.

First of all, whoever decided UGA should have been favored that heavily against WVU just because it was practically a home game was smoking some good stuff. WVU was a really good team that year. They both were. That ain't the case here.

I hate Oklahoma more than the average person, and I actually like UConn more than the average person too, but c'mon now. Do you really think they have a shot in this game? Beyond saying, "Hey, the game hasn't been played yet, so theoretically they could win," it's really hard to make a case for UConn. A decent run offense hasn't made up for their garbage pass offense this year. And this year's Oklahoma team hasn't been the powerhouse of old, but they'll probably still drop 40 on UConn.

I know you feel you've gotta rep your conference and all (which is probably hard on this board since it appears you're the only Big East fan left!) but let's be reasonable. This reeks of Bill Plaschke-level homerism.

It's easy to say that in hindsight, but that is definitely not what the attitude was at the time. Pat White came on in the middle of the season and hadn't really played against any tough competition, so nobody really knew what to expect from him. Steve Slaton was a freshman. UConn has the nation's second-most prolific running back this season in a guy named Jordan Todman. Why can't the Huskies pull off the upset?


    Do you really think they have a shot in this game? Beyond saying, "Hey, the game hasn't been played yet, so theoretically they could win," it's really hard to make a case for UConn.

I think UConn is much better than Cincinnati. And Oklahoma beat Cincinnati by two.

Yes, I think UConn has a shot. If I had to make a prediction, I'd say Oklahoma by about a touchdown.


    I know you feel you've gotta rep your conference and all (which is probably hard on this board since it appears you're the only Big East fan left!) but let's be reasonable. This reeks of Bill Plaschke-level homerism.


I think the homerism is to completely write off a team because of the conference they are from. West Virginia had one fewer loss - and a loss to UConn! - and has looked equally anemic on offense this year, but people would be willing to believe they have a shot and UConn doesn't. It doesn't make any sense.

The ACC has won one BCS game in the past decade. The Big East won three straight after the ACC raid, but then lost the last two. Why isn't everyone on the ACC's nuts about it? Because it's easy to rag on the Big East, whether facts support it or not, that's why.

I'll respond to this only to say that I think everyone gives the Big East a harder time than the ACC due to the larger number of non-traditional powers in the Big East. Let's face it: most people pay attention to their home conference and whoever is in the top 10. Other than the SEC (who we're supposed to assume is better than God at football) and a few traditional powers sprinkled around the country, everyone else is just a no name. When it comes to the Big East, there just aren't that many teams that the casual observer would place much confidence in. I think that's been doubly the case this year, when there just haven't been any good teams in the Big East at all.

As for the ACC, either the last few years' relative mediocrity is finally catching up to them or this year's super duper sucky-ness is causing some very vocal backlash from around the country, because I haven't heard any conference trashed this year as much as I've heard the ACC trashed. Not even the Big East. It was obvious watching the polls and the talking heads each week that everyone assumed Virginia Tech was the class of the conference and every other team should be relegated to the FCS or even Div II (yes, I know VT's representing the ACC in the Orange Bowl, but I wouldn't call them the "class" of anything this year; slightly above average at best). So I wouldn't quite say no one is on the ACC's nuts. If nothing else, just give it 'til the end of bowl season. =)

I notice plenty of people knocking the ACC. I also notice Big East fans spend more time whining about their conference perception than do ACC fans, so maybe that's why they get made fun of more. Maybe that's just my view, could be wrong. I know the ACC stinks. Has for a while now. Oh well.

I'm not sure how much longer Big East fans are going to drag out the Georgia/WV game in every arguement. Probably as long as Boise fans will bring up OU. Not sure how it's relevant this year.

Last, do facts not support ragging on the Big East this year? Really? They've had a terrible year, I don't see how there is any question about that.

Again, so has the ACC. Both conferences are likely to see their champs stomped in bowl games, and won't that be fun. But what exactly is your point here? "Hey, the ACC sucks too!" Indeed. Who's arguing against that?

The lesser bowl games of Florida/PSU, ND/Miami and Alabama/Michigan State are far more appealing then the BCS games. OU is a no win situation if they win, its nothing if they lose its huge. Its not that can UConn play with these guys, the question is will anyone care. These automatic qualifiers need to be in the BCS top 25 or it goes to the next top BCS team. Oregon will either win in a shoot out or Cam will go up and down the field.

An error in Coley's rankings means he should have had Boise ahead of LSU. I don't think it would have put them ahead of LSU in the overall standings, but I'm not sure.
