The way I felt about the old big east was how I think SEC fans think about their brand of football - it's just better and no conference compares
Really, which new Big East teams have better offense than Syracuse and Louisville? Creighton, maybe, and that is simply because they have the NPOY on their team.

If they can remain a great team and finish top 15, that'd be huge for us.
I am rooting for UConn. First because I hate Memphis fans and second because it will give them two losses and UConn already has two losses. It would be nice to be up multiple games on both of them...

Creighton has the #1 Adjusted offense according to KenPom (Syracuse is #8 and UofL is #28).

The New Big East has been a big disappointment IMO. You've got Georgetown and Marquette (who shared the BE title last year) as bubble teams. In the latest bracketology they've got 2 Villanova, 4 Creighton, 8 Xavier and 11 Georgetown. In comparison the American has 5 Cincinnati, 5 Memphis, 6 Louisville, 8 UConn and 11 Southern Methodist.

NTS, I'm with you. I'm rooting for UCONN. Anything that improves our position in league standings is a good thing at this point. First goal is win the league. Everything else will take care of itself.

You can use this link to compare scoring by season. There's only a half season sample size of the new little east. I think it was more scoring that daugherty was happy about. He's not an advanced metric person looking at points per possession, real fg efficiency, etc. I'm not a fan or defender of the this sham of a conference. the old and new version of this conference is to me the difference between the Rolling Stones and a Rolling Stones tribute band.

Very good game between UConn and Memphis, Tigers up 40-39 at the half.

Louisville and Houston hasn't been as good of a game. Louisville has 57 points...in the first half. We only scored 61 over the whole game against them lol.

YES! Memphis is going down. They really aren't as good as I thought. Very sloppy in key moments again...

Not sure why you're pumped Memphis isn't as good as you thought. Yeah, the loss gives UC a bigger cushion, but that's our huge win so far...

Memphis fans...are hilarious when they lose. I love reading their board.
