Big East Football: Week Ten

Writing is really difficult. As I understand it, to coherently present an idea, words need to be linked together in accordance with standard grammatical technique.

That be whack!

So, in order to eschew my responsibilities to the English language, maybe it's time to take a glimpse at the "Somewhat Midseason, Yet Hopelessly Too Early Big East Pythagoras."

Pythagoras, in their very nature, are a contentious topic; they are often best supported when all the data to be considered has been accumulated, and even then, their purpose and accuracy is often shadowed in doubt. But for the sake of creating an introduction to this essay, I've decided to assemble some Pythagora data for review, even though it is clearly not appropriate.

(If you want to compare the data depicted below to its 2004 counterpart, click here. If you want to laugh at Syracuse's historical Pythagora record under Paul Pasqualoni, click here.)

[Biggest Underachiever]
Connecticut
This is probably the residue of Connecticut playing a whole lot of junk early in the season and now forced to play tougher opponents during their Big East schedule.

[Overachievers]
Cincinnati
Even in a non-Pythagorean sense, Cincinnait has gotten more done this season than anybody would have anticipated just three months ago.

[Game of the Week]
Every game this week is the "game of the week" as each contest is busting with implications.

Chas over at Pitt Sports Blather did a nice little shakedown of what each contending team needs to do down the homestretch to assure itself a BCS bid. With Chas' comments in mind, it appears as if this week will be the first in a series of dominos to fall in determining who will gain the right to get waxed by the SEC's second representative to the BCS.
