(Big) East Coast Bias

There's a truism about not defecating where you consume meals. The fact that Yoni chose to trust me not to do so in his playground, speaks to his trust or his naivete. I guess we'll see how it goes for the next couple of weeks. Working in his favor is the fact that the last time I saw live match-up of Arizona vs. Pitt, Pitt won 100-92. Granted that was back in January 1990, when I was still in school. And sure a couple years later they crushed Pitt by 20, but I didn't see that game, so it's hard to be that upset at this point.

I'm Chas, and I've been blogging on anything that I feel like here for a couple years and in the last year plus with some friends regarding Pitt. I expect that most of my posts will be regarding the Big East in the present and with an eye to the future. This is obviously a strange time for any fan of a BE school. Things are in upheaval and stability has never been t a word to be associated with this conference. At least that remains the same. Here's how I predict the Big East in 2004-05.

I'm curious and excited to read what other guest bloggers post here. Cross-pollination of ideas is one of the reasons I was juiced to take part. It is way too easy to get stuck in an echo chamber when you focus on one team or conference.
