Most Frog haters believe they nor Boise State or any of the other Non-AQ teams deserve a spot in the rich kids club. Maybe they don't.
But what in the name of overrated-overhyped-non deserving teams is the Big East doing in the BCS? While we're at it, what is the Big East doing at the I-A level?
Week 2 is not even done and the "best" of the Big East has already been exposed; this time it was No. 23 West Virginia barely winning at Marshall, 24-21, in OT in Huntington, WVA on Friday night. WVA had no business winning this game. Marshall authored one of the great chokes in recent memories; the Thundering Herd led 21-6 midway through the fourth quarter before gagging.
Don't be confused by this win. WVA is not that good.
The larger issue is the Big East continues to be treated like a power conference when all it does is demonstrate is that it's on the same level as the MWC or C-USA. If that.
In Week 1, No. 15 Pitt lost at Utah in OT.
Now WVA barely avoids a huge upset, and deserved to lose.
But because the Big East has a ticket to the BCS the greater viewing audience can be assured some undeserving team from this conference will play in a prime-time bowl game.
