Big East: Cincinnati faces key season for program | Buckeye Xtra Sports
I've said it before, this season is a critical one for the Bearcats after the magic that Brian Kelly brought to the program seemed to dissipate during last year's 4 - 8 campaign. I think a four-game swing like I think they'll do this season will be very good for this program, showing that they can win no matter who is the coach and will make many people believes in Coach Jones, no matter how gimmicky he may seem.

Inside the Big East: Receivers | September
If I was going to rank the wide receivers in the Big East I'd have to give the #1 spot to Rutgers. Mark Harrison and Mohamed Sanu are basically 1-a and 1-b at the position as they are both very dangerous receiving threats. Harrison is a monster with speed to boot and Sanu is a very athletic speedster with good hands. Cincinnati always ranks high on this list as a good wideout is easy to find in the Bearcats' pass happy system, but Chas Dodd will have plenty of targets this fall. If only he could find someone to block for him.

Michael Kruse on Nike and the success of Oregon football - Grantland
I can name a few reasons for why this is happening. First of all, their association with Nike allows them to get tons of merchandise and new gear for cheap as well as a lot of sponsorship deals to pour money into the athletic department. All of those things help grab the best recruits in the country. Secondly, those uniforms are SYCK! Finally, Chip Kelly's offense is an as exciting brand of football as you'll see in college football today. Speed kills. Touchdowns draw fans. Lots of scoring wins games. The Ducks have been doing all three of those things very well recently.
