Syracuse Daily Links - Would A Loss Do SU Good?

Syracuse Basketball Must Lose (to Snap Out of this Funk) : Orange Fizz – Syracuse Recruiting, Sports Rumors, Podcasts, Student Life
It’s clear, the only way for this team to snap out of this funk (one good half and one bad half, playing down to the competition, putting the burden on Rick Jackson’s shoulders) is to lose. To make this analogy more simple, I present to you the movie John Tucker Must Die. Yes, it’s in fact a chick flick. Yes, I’ve watched it. But I think the analogy is strong (plus the movie’s not actually that bad!).

All about the Big East: Better than billed - College Basketball -
Kemba Walker is averaging 30 points for undefeated Connecticut, Pittsburgh has wins over Illinois and Texas and, somehow, Cincinnati managed to thump Dayton by three dozen points. And the Big East is supposed to be down in 2010-11? Uh, hardly.

College Football Alphabetical, Week 13: So Appalled -
Q is for Quean. A woman of bad character, aka the Big East, who's just throwing it around to any old gent with a wallet who walks in the door. They're in good company--remember the Pac-10's unfortunate attempt to organize a polygamous colony this past summer?--but TCU is a john who will pay the bills well enough, especially given the neighborhood it's coming from in Dallas, a large media market with plenty of eyeballs. Additionally, the Horned Frogs better be able to come right in and win this conference, since UConn, as scrappy/inspiring/underdoggish as they might be, are not the name you want to see slotted for "Automatic Conference BCS Bid."

Checking in on how the Big East is doing on the recruiting trail - ESPN
Expect Syracuse to go all in for linebacker Ishaq Williams (Brooklyn, N.Y./Lincoln). The four-star linebacker is the best player in the state and has family ties to the program. Penn State still appears to have the inside track on the 6-4, 220-pounder but Syracuse is in the top five and will most likely get a visit. Three-star athlete Josh Grady (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) says Syracuse will get an official visit after the season. One thing that might improve the Orange's chances with Grady is that they will allow him to compete at quarterback.

Dashing through Boise State Broncos, the coaching carousel and season awards - ESPN
COY: Charlie Strong (27), Louisville. Barely edges out Doug Marrone of Syracuse, largely because Strong coaxed the Cardinals to 6-6 while having to play three quarterbacks due to injury and missing leading rusher Bilal Powell and top receiver Doug Beaumont for two games apiece. Strong inherited a program that was picked to finish last in the league, got it to .500 and had a chance to win every game but one.
