Not that the Big East is relevant in any discussion of college football, but how is it that after Syracuse man-handled West Virginia, West Virginia is ranked while Syracuse is not? (They share the same record.) At least USC has a better record than Arizona State (although I’m sure they’ll have a loss after Oregon as well). I imagine there would considerable uproar if Wisconsin were ranked higher than Michigan State today.
Then again, maybe I answered it in the beginning: no one cares enough about the Big East to actually bother evaluating them.
Update: The coaches are even worse than the AP, giving WV about 10 times as much love as the Orange.
2nd Update: None of the computers have WV ranked.
