The Big East is the red-headed stepchild of the BCS conferences. Most big-time college football fans wait to pay attention to the league until a Big East team pops up on the nonconference schedule or an undefeated Cincinnati or West Virginia starts to make its way up the polls late in the season.
Bloguin network colleague Aaron Torres of AaronTorres-Sports.com is here to tell you why you're missing out. Torres join Homerism for a podcast to explain why the league is on the rise. Among the topics we discuss:
- Randy Edsall's brilliant coaching job at UConn in 2009;
- the changes taking place for the Cincinnati Bearcats under new coach Butch Jones;
- Greg Schiano's standing on the national landscape; and
- whether or not West Virginia head coach Bill Stewart has shown he's the right guy to lead the Mountaineers.
