Big East Power Poll: Week Six

New, comments

This conference sucks.

Thanks for stamping the "official" tag on the memo, Pitt.

1. Pittsburgh (6) (4-1, 2-0)

Last Week: Beat South Florida (26-21)

This Week: Off

See above.

2. South Florida (1) (5-1, 0-1)

Last Week: Lost to Pittsburgh (26-21)

This Week: Off

So all that talk about maturity, past lessons and now being able to handle success, I guess that was, uh, that was pretty much just talk, wasn't it. Don't look at me like that when you know I'm right.

3. Connecticut (2) (5-1, 1-0)

Last Week: Lost to North Carolina (38-12)

This Week: Off

It's OK, we all pretty much knew anyway.

4. Cincinnati (4) (4-1, 0-0)

Last Week: Beat Marshall (33-10)

This Week: vs. Rutgers

Rutgers may be 1-4, but it's defense is still more than capable of making Chazz Anderson prove that he can be productive against secondaries that aren't Marshall's.

5. West Virginia (3) (3-2, 1-0)

Last Week: Beat Rutgers (24-17)

This Week: vs. Syracuse

And now it's time for the biggest test of the '07 Cardinals/'08 Mountaineers theory.

6. Louisville (5) (2-2, 0-1)

Last Week: Off

This Week: At Memphis

The good news? A loss to Memphis still won't be enough to drop you to seventh or eighth.

7. Rutgers (7) (1-4, 0-1)

Last Week: Lost to West Virginia (24-17)

This Week: At Cincinnati

It's going to be disgusting to watch, but the Scarlet Knights get No. 2 at Nippert on Saturday.

  8. Syracuse (8) (1-4, 0-1)

Last Week: Off

This Week: At West Virginia

I can only assume that Syracuse fans bore the brunt of as many lame "not losing this week" jokes during their bye weekend as I did when the Lions were off two weeks ago. And yes, they're only lame when you're not making them.
