Winning the Big East, Wishful Thinking?




According to several ESPN Columnist Louisville doesn't have a shot.

I may be late on the whole "Why is Syracuse and Pitt projected to do great and win the BE every year" argument, but it is time I break my silence.

As the college basketball season has kicked off, I have read several blogs and listen to several interviews and to my surprise, UCONN, PITT, and Syracuse are the top three teams that everyone thinks about winning the Big East.

Where's the Louisville love.

Syracuse can't beat us.

It took UCONN 3 tries and a little help from officials in Kemba Walker's home town in the BE Tournament to finally beat us. Kemba, the Soul reason that UCONN was relevant last season, isn't there anymmore, so they are relying on Sophomore Jeremy Lamb to carry them.

Did anyone forget that we beat Pitt as well last year?

So why don't we get any love?

If it helps, I read an article on this weeks "SI Magazine College Basketball Preview," that said Louisville looks much like the 2010-2011 UCONN team.

"This Louisville squad looks alot like last years UCONN Huskies, with no household names (yet), the Cardinals look to bring home another title for another historic coach."
