You may already know that the 2010 Fiesta Bowl features the Connecticut Huskies, unranked in the Week 15 USA Today poll and the final BCS rankings, and the first such team to be snubbed in the last BCS top 25 and still make it to a BCS bowl game.

Sure, let's just enjoy both and call it a push, and agree that the Big East isn't the House of Lords in the BCS system, but is the gin-soaked octogenarian snoozing away in the corner who only wakes up for tea-time and votes on fox-hunting

A look back: Jimmer finds way to BYU with a big assist from a Syracuse coach
"It was one of those things where we didn't want to take too many," said Hopkins, one of Syracuse's all-time most popular players who has been on Jim Boeheim's staff for 15 years. "Jimmer's one of those guys who you look back...and well, we all make mistakes. But us not signing him wasn't by any stretch because he couldn't play."

Syracuse regular season recap - Big East Blog - ESPN
Those offensive problems and the team's inexplicable 0-4 record at the Carrier Dome against FBS opponents put a small damper on the enthusiasm for this season. Still, there's no way Marrone's second year could be considered anything but a major leap forward for the program.

Big East Football Power Rankings Week 14 - The UConn Blog
Here's a fun dynamic though: the top three teams in this poll could very well have different coaches by the time we start next season. That's not the case for Syracuse, South Florida or Louisville, all of which have either a first- or second-year coach and bright futures. The conference may have been down this year, but there is some good young coaching talent here and by the time TCU shows up, the power structure in the league may look very different.

Otto's Army : Orange Face Green Menace At The Garden
On an encouraging note, a loss at MSG Tuesday night wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world for Syracuse. Hate to break it to the unaware, but we have not played like anything close to a top-10 team this season, and a more realistic ranking might serve as a springboard into conference play.
