Mark Ennis from Big East Coast Bias
When it comes to predicting who will win the Big East I am finding that a number of different opinions are out there. I have West Virginia on top in my book and that feeling has been shared by some others. Phil Steele tabs the Pitt Panthers at the top of his Big East ranking and I have been stunned to see Syracuse take the lead in a recent Facebook poll.
With some contrasting opinions floating around I decided to enlist the services of our friend Mark Ennis from Big East Coast Bias to get his opinion on the Big East. Not only do we discuss the sequence of events that ultimately forced Bill Stewart out and handed the program over to Dana Holgorsen, but we make sure to at least briefly touch on each team in the conference and what fans can expect to see from them in 2011.
While we have Ennis on we also discuss some of the rumblings about the future of the conference, including Brett McMurphy’s latest story from CBSSports.com. Is it a real possibility that Army and Navy could be playing Big East football in the near future? It has some legs to run wiht according to the report, and it is somehting I would love to see from a football standpoint unless Notre Dame and Penn State decide to abandon their current situations and join the conference in football. And where exactly does this leave Villanova?
Ennis believes (and I agree) that Villanova is still going to be added to the conference’s football group, but we may need to be a bit more patient. This may not be done by July 1, and that may be OK.
