Big East Football: Week One

For all intents and purposes, the college football season is here.


With that in mind, here's the schedule of games going down this weekend with Big East Conference implications.

As you'll notice, opening weekend provides quite the buffet of Big East football. From a season-opening conference game to a nationally televised slugfest between teams brandishing navy and gold, it's a pretty solid lineup of games from Thursday through Sunday evening.

And, of course, Cincy has the opportunity to play their way off ESPN's Bottom 10 bubble.

Big East Football: Week One
9.01.05Eastern Michigan v. CincinnatiCincinnati, OH7:00 PM
9.01.05Buffalo v. ConnecticutEast Hartford, CT7:30 PM

9.04.05West Virginia v. SyracuseSyracuse, NYABC1:30 PM
9.04.05Louisville v. KentuckyLexington, KYESPN3:30 PM

Reasonable Out Of Conference BE Record (Week 1): 4-2
Optimistic Out Of Conference BE Record (Week 1): 5-1
Pessimistic Out of Conference BE Record (Week 1): 2-4

Clearly, the marquee matchup involving a Big East member this weekend is Notre Dame visiting Dave Wanndstedt and Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh really needs to lay the wood to the Irish to put a tourniquet on all the "BCS Unworthy" talk. Plus, it'll be Step 1 in the eventual firing of Charlie Weis.

If you want more information on this game, I recommend reading either Pitt Sports Blather or The Blue-Gray Sky. They'll hook you up with what you need to know.

PSB is basically an excerpted news service with little blogger-driven commentary, while BGS makes you want to drive all across the country to slap every delusional Notre Dame supporter you can find.

    Greetings from

    This is just a quick request to join the BlogAid (I think they're calling it that) event tomorrow (Thursday). Check the link below for more info, but basically I want to have some kind of CFB blog contingent helping out on this.

    Its in the name of Hurricane Katrina relief. The link should explain more, basically all you need to do is make an entry (or more if you wish) asking readers to donate to the charity of your choice.


    No pressure either, I don't mind in the least if you don't participate, just trying to add a few more CFB blogs, considering that Katrina has also affected the sport we all love.

    This is a late request, obviously, but if you feel like being a part of it, join me.

    PS email back if you're gonna join (with your blog's name---sorry, I don't remember email addresses so easily), so I can note you on my blog as one of the participants.

    Thanks! Apologies if this email was annoying (I'm not normally a fan of the Live Aid, etc. stuff, but just feel compelled given the enormity of the situation).

    You said: "BGS makes you want to drive all across the country to slap every delusional Notre Dame supporter you can find."

    Yes, yes. That's about the best description I've seen for that blog. Your blog, on the other hand, is great. Really. Love the humour. Keep up the good work.
