The Big East's recent struggles got me thinking. What if BC never left the Big East? For a program that's come oh-so-close but hasn't gotten over the BCS bowl hump, I'm wondering how many BCS bowls the Eagles would have gone to if they had stayed in the conference.

And that's a major reason why Marinovich came to Syracuse, which is about as far away as you can get from his Southern California home and still play major college football.
