Syracuse Daily Links - Two SU Football Games That Will Determine The Big East

The Ten Games That Will Determine the Big East in 2011 - #6 West Virginia at Syracuse - Big East Coast Bias
Syracuse will enter the game in much the same shape that West Virginia will. Worst case, the Orange will be 4-2 and should be 1-0 in conference play when they welcome the Mountaineers to the Carrier Dome. Though Delone Carter is gone, Antwon Bailey is a very capable replacement and by week seven, the Orange offense should be humming.

The Ten Games That Will Determine the Big East in 2011 - #7 Syracuse at Pittsburgh - Big East Coast Bias
This season, the Syracuse-Pitt tilt is the final game of the regular season for both teams on December 3 at Heinz Field. Syracuse overachieved last season but has a favorable schedule this season and should still be a bowl team. Pitt is rolling out Todd Graham's "high octane" offense in 2011. If the Panthers rolled over the Orange with Wannstedt's offense last year at Syracuse, what will a high scoring offense be able to achieve at home? Well, I don't think we'll see the same result as last year.

An early primer on the coming Big East basketball season | Providence College | | The Providence Journal
The Big East doesn’t seem like it has a team that can hang with those big dogs, but the one that could come the closest is likely Syracuse. The Orange lose only productive big man Rick Jackson and bring back a ton of experience, including potential star Kris Joseph and guards Scoop Jardine and Brandon Triche. Add in a recruiting class that includes two McDonald’s All-Americans (including Michael Carter-Williams of St. Andrew’s) and Jim Boeheim probably has a preseason top-five team.

But on the other hand, can you trust a man who has violated NFL policy at two different jobs? Especially when trust is of vital importance in the landscape of college football today, where we have seen rogue coaches and players acting on their own to the detriment of their programs? I am not accusing Scarnecchia of anything here, but his past alone is enough to give anybody pause about hiring him.

Big East position rankings: O-Line - Big East Blog - ESPN
1. Syracuse. The Orange have four returning starters, including two seniors. You have Justin Pugh, who made second-team All-Big East last year as a freshman. You have a more mature and experienced unit than the one last year, which had to replace four starters. There also is depth to have a nice eight-man rotation. The concern is at center, where Macky MacPherson is undersized. Actually, when you look at the entire group, it is undersized. Andrew Tiller is the only one who tips the scales at more than 300 pounds.
