I'll have to add to that. Pitt seems bound to have a year that could spur that program. Just look at Penn State, though beating a pathetic Indiana team 22-18, that sparked the comeback of winning in the Program. For Pitt, you guys just beat them 13-9 when they had a chance at a National Championship team. So hey, history might repeat itself down there.
Rutgers- Couldn't agree more
Syracuse- Until we see them doing something good, ask me around week 8
Louisville- Always Good, but with Brohm gone they'll be interesting to follow this year.
Cincy- Not much seen from them since 2005 when PSU plastered them
WVU- I expect to be down early making the transition to a new head coach, but should do well enough to make a bowl.
USF- Probably the biggest contender for the conference title. Potentially their match up with Pitt could decide who wins the Big East if they play as good as the last 2 years, but also improve.
Pitt's schedule favors them to at least make a bowl game. The big one will be Iowa out of the non-conference. I could see Pitt going 7-5 to 9-3. Wins against Bowling Green, Buffalo, Syracuse, Rutgers, Notre Dame, Cincinnati as locked in wins. The other 6 will be interesting.
