Irreverent blog highlights irrelevant Panthers

Get a load of this piece from the Home News Tribune, which says it covers Central Jersey, although I don't know why anyone would want to do that.

'South Florida can run the table'

Here's the meat of it:

South Florida, which comes to Rutgers on Thursday night as the nation's No. 2 team, figured to have a good team this year, although they were voted to finish fourth in the Big East Conference preseason media poll.

Rutgers, which some believed would win the Big East, already has one conference loss and two overall.

West Virginia, an overwhelming favorite to win the conference, already has a loss. Louisville, picked right behind West Virginia, was just .500 a week ago before beating Cincinnati. The Bearcats, picked fifth in the conference, came
into that game undefeated.

Connecticut, picked seventh in the preseason, also lost for the first time last week — in a nonconference game at Virginia, leaving them tied with South Florida on top of the Big East.

Syracuse is the only team with two Big East losses, but it knocked off Louisville when the Cardinals were ranked in the Top 25.

Wait -- is a team missing? Oh, yeah, the Pitt Panthers. Now so not-worth-the-ink that they don't fit into a general discussion about seven-eighths of the Big East.

Time to Dispatch the 'Stache. Fire Dave Wannstedt.
