Official Big EAST Football Power Poll (Week #1)

There is nothing more important in college football than the polls. Polls are everywhere, whether they be polls of the media, polls of the coaches, or polls of other polls. Quite simply, they are the lifeblood of the sport. In fact, the games themselves are just a pastime until the newest polls are released (look for www.everydayshouldbemonday.com, coming soon).

We at WBGV, with our fingers so connected to the pulse of college football that we’re restricting its blood-flow, have decided to take action. Hencetoforthorsomethingorother, we’re starting our own poll.

It won’t be your usual poll. Nay! It will be the best poll ever created. It will definitively tell you who is the best team in the Big EAST. Why will it be the best? Because it will use random, non-football related reasons to come up with the rankings (hey, just like every other poll!).

The only catch: you, loyal WBGV readers, have to guess what the criteria is. Post your best hunch in the comments, and we will provide you with hints throughout the day.

  1. Syracuse
  2. Rutgers
  3. UConn
  4. Pitt
  5. WVU
  6. Cincinnati
  7. Louisville
  8. USF

  1. Distance from Montreal?

  2. I’m going with “Worst” locations, i.e. cities, to have a unversity, or go to college.

    In order of worst – syracuse

    to first – south florida (Tampa).

  3. The first letters in the rankings spell out SRUPWCLU, which is pronounced “Ess Rup Wee Klou”, which sounds almost like the ancient gaelic phrase meaning “the correct order”.

  4. Weather…….coldest temps to warmest?

  5. Order in which the team was added to the Big East.

  6. Actually, UConn is closer to Montreal than Rutgers. And I would never choose a city outside of the United States.

    And Rutgers joined as a football member the same time as West Virginia.

  7. Weather is it weather?….who has the best weather?….the amount of good weather they have?….. how sunny their weather is?

  8. The first letters in the rankings spell out SRUPWCLU, which is pronounced “Ess Rup Wee Klou”, which sounds almost like the ancient gaelic phrase meaning “the correct order”.

    If I was actually smart enough to come up with something like this, I would impress myself. Sadly, I am not. Plus, I think you just made all that up.

    Weather is it weather?….who has the best weather?….the amount of good weather they have?….. how sunny their weather is?

    It is not weather. We all know WVU has better weather than Louisville, where the STDs in the air are a danger to your lungs and exposed genitals.

  9. OK, first clue: Nosmo King has the right idea.

    Discuss….

  10. Most pathetic fans?

  11. Distance from Tuscon?

  12. number of chicks Charley would not do

  13. Distance from Charley West’s home town.

    Wherever the hell that is.

  14. Distance from Charley West’s home town.

    Wherever the hell that is.

    I live in a secure, undisclosed bunker in southern West Virginia.

  15. Northernmost to southermost.

  16. Highest rate of STD’s to lowest?

  17. Highest rate of STD’s to lowest?

    We all know USF would be much higher on this list.

    Guys, it’s distance from a city. That city is not Montreal, as Nosmo King guessed. But it is a city in the northeast.

  18. Buffalo, home of the Wild Wing and the 0-4 in Super Bowls Bills

  19. Buffalo, home of the Wild Wing and the 0-4 in Super Bowls Bills

    Pittsburgh is closer to Buffalo than both Rutgers and UConn. But you’re in the right state.

  20. The distance from the BCS Chamiponship game location.

  21. War Eagle?

  22. They are cities in order of the ability to hear how loud Syracuse coach Greg Robinson sux.

  23. Distance from syracuse

  24. What is albany.

  25. Distance from BAASTON?

  26. What is albany.

    Closest guess so far. We’re definitely in the neighborhood. Just take a short trip down I-88 to the birthplace of certified hot piece of ass Bridget Moynahan.

  27. Binghamton?

  28. Binghamton?

    Bingo. Today’s Big EAST Power Poll is decided solely on proximity to Binghamton, NY. As you can see, this exercise is just about as dumb as any other preseason poll. Just wait ’till next week when we get to do it all over again.

    For winning, dubv’12 wins a beer at our tailgate on Saturday….if he can find it.

  29. Other than Miss Moynahan (not that that’s not reason enough) what is the significance of Binghamton?

  30. Other than Miss Moynahan (not that that’s not reason enough) what is the significance of Binghamton?

    Absolutely nothing. That was the point. It’s just me being pissed off at polls in general and deciding to satire them in an almost humorous manor. Plus I sometimes like to waste people’s time.

  31. good times

  32. I’m sure that ol’ Corso and Herbie will be showing this poll on College Football Live this evening, and will talk about how Oklahoma and Ohio State are actually closer to Binghamton, but the other schools lowered their academic standards to get in better proximity.

  33. Distance from the Big Apple and the Big East Basketball Tournament

  34. Charley West is a genius!

  35. still think she’s hot?

  36. Yes.

  37. where might this tailgate be, i will mostly be in the pit 😀
