Team Fizz on why it had to be TCU which saved the Big East.
“For TCU, their travel does not increase that much, but like DA tweeted, those trips for women’s soccer from Philadelphia to Dallas are gonna be a bitch.”
Speaking of D.A., he stopped by to opine on the TCU move. His thoughts? Pathetic that Big East football’s savior has to come from a Ft. Worth, TX private school, but a necessary evil.
“It’s sad that it has to come from the Mountain West, it’s sad that the Big East football program has to be propped up by a team called the Horned Frogs. But that’s the deal. This year, the Big East isn’t gonna have a ranked team by the end of the season. This conference has schools in Chicago and Milwaukee, we stopped being the Big East in a little quadrant of Northeast private schools a long time ago. It’s a necessary evil.”
So you can call it the Big Middle East, for now. Moving on to Atlantic City, I mentioned Brian Oliver’s potential to explode was seen in full form during the Legends Classic. After Kannell criticized The Per’fesser on the early season struggles, he gave the Orange a mulligan following the Georgia Tech wingman’s career performance.
“Yes, they need to play better defense. But just from watching the game, not just the stat sheet, I think a lot of thos shots are just a good player making fantastic shots.”
