The Rutgers/Arkansas game is at Rutgers, not at Arkansas as is stated in this article.

Just saw a tweet that the Big East lawyers registered the domain name america12.com. So “America 12” is one possibility. Not sure why they would use a number in this day and age.

So much for my trip to Behle Street. My poor Bearcats. If a Wednesday nighter doesn’t ooze C-USA, I don’t know what does. Such is life in C-TBA.

Thanks. Not that is matters because I won’t be visiting anyways. But thanks though.

And we forgot the props to newcomer UCF for their OOC games against Penn State and South Carolina. Nice to see that type of schedule from the new members.
