College Football: December 26th-28th Preview

December 26th, 2008

Now that the presents have been unwrapped and many of you are rushing to stores for post-Christmas deals, it's time for college football to blitz into the new year with a glut of games. You can argue all day about the merits of thirty-four bowl games (personally, I think it's too many), but at the least some of these games offer momentary diversions from college basketball, which in many cases is still a week or so away from conference play.

GameNight: West Virginia vs Miami (OH)

Editor's Early Preview (9/15):

West Virginia's chance to make a splash on the national scene was hurt when Ruoff and Mazzulla were forced to miss their NYC affair with Davidson. Still, the Mountaineers have a great chance to return to the NCAA Tournament. Miami won't be able to make it as an at-large team, but they're a very dangerous squad.. especially when their 3 point shots are falling. These are two of the country's most well-coached teams.

Big East

The 2008-09 Big East season should bring as much excitement as any.  Commonly regarded as the toughest conference in college basketball, it has the potential to put 9+ teams into the NCAA tournament come March.


At the backbone of a great team comes a great coach, and the Big East has plenty of great coaches.  But which coaches are the best?  Let's just say that a well-padded résumé is not enough to give a coach top honors in this conference.
