Three Idiots on Sports: Getting to Know Chazz Anderson
Collaros' back up is the uniquely named Chazz (two Zs) Anderson. With the distinct possibility he may be leading the Bearcats (not to be confused with the ManBearPigs) we've done some serious investigative journalism (Google) in order to learn more about Chazz. Let's get started.
Orange::44: Cincinnati Q&A With Bearcats Blog
Of course. If someone says they aren't impressed with the Orange, they are lying liars who lie. Syracuse stopped WVU after the first quarter, and generally tortured Geno Smith. The running game has been very impressive. I like Antwon Bailey a whole lot, and even with Carter playing, I'm worried about Bailey.
What to watch in the Big East, Week 9 - College Football Nation Blog - ESPN
Scott Shafer vs. the Cincinnati offense: The Syracuse defensive coordinator has come up with game plans that have shut down both the South Florida and West Virginia offenses. Now he must devise a strategy to counter the Big East's top scoring and top total yardage attack. Syracuse loves to pressure the quarterback, while Cincinnati likes its passers to get rid of the ball quickly out of the shotgun. The Bearcats receivers could also give the Orange problems as Pitt's did two weeks ago in a 45-14 Syracuse loss. It's going to be a fascinating chess match to watch.

So congrats to future Big East Champions Syracuse, who wins the tiebreaker over West Virginia due to their win over the Mountaineers last weekend in Morgantown. Pitt goes from 1st to 7th over the last two weeks, and USF has their best finish in the Big East. Congrats again to Syracuse, and if this actually happens, I'll start playing Powerball that night.

Melo may be the biggest name, and of course he is the biggest guy. But fellow freshman Dion Waiters put on quite a show at midnight madness and looks like a guy who could see immediate time at one of the guard positions.

Fab Melo, 7-0, 245, C, Syracuse — The big Brazilian should take the place of Arinze Onuaku, and he could be a force on both ends of the floor. But it also may take some time.
Early Big East Bowl Projections: Cuse to Disney World | Daily Orange Sports Blog
Syracuse won’t win out. But even if the Orange does, it will not be enough for a BCS game. Pitt won’t lose two games. West Virginia has a much tougher Big East schedule the rest of the way than the Orange. With just one WVU loss, SU should feel comfortable that they will get to Orlando, even if there is a long way to go.
