Preview Of Big East
For the next week I will be giving a preview of the Big East. My previews will go in order of the media confernce picks.
1. West Virginia Moutaineers
This team has speed, at every position this team can fly and speed kills. The eers' will take the feild on Sept.2 against Marshall, to start a national championship run.
QB.Pat White decision making came in even better during the spring. The passing game made strides, expect White to throw more than just 8 times a game this year. He might not throw for 300 but if he gets a 150 yards a game, West Virginia could be dancing in Arizona.
RB.Steve Slaton, speed, vision and quickness. This guy is the whole package if he stays healthy, lets face it he is 5'10" 185. We do not know if he can get through a whole seaon. If he can, it should be something to watch.
WR. Have not seen this group do really anything but that goes to the running game of the eers'. Miles, Jalloh, and Reynaud should run the group but look for jr. Brandon Barrett to break into the rotation and make an impact.
OL.All-American canidate center Dan Mozes is back to anchor what has been one of the best lines for the past five years. Rodriguez has shown he knows how to put a line together and this year should be no different.
DL.Three jr.s line up in the 3-3-5 font line this year Dykes,Dingle,and Liebig will just get in the way and cause confussion. The is the part of the team that must play well in the Lousville game if the Championship game is in sight.
LB. The linbackers are intact and ready to play. Jay Henry is smart play every down the same, Boo McLee hard hitter big play man, knows how to strip the ball, and how to recover it, any of the other choices will be fine for the strong side, Barry White or Reed Williams.
DB. This is the Big ?. Wicks is a player that got even more athletic in the spring.
Corner back Antonio Lewis and Larry Williams will be in the spotlight in a lot of games. Let the praise begin now because freshman Quinton Andrews is amazing. The 5'11" 205 pounder is a hard hitting, fast as a cat, and freakish instincts. Look for him to make an impact this year like Slaton did last year.
Kicking. McAfee should get better he was to kicker in the country when recruited, Kozlowski is going to take over the punting jobs.
