  1. Midseason review: Cincinnati

    Brian Bennett

    Cincinnati Bearcats Record: 2-3 (0-0 Big East) Cincinnati players got very used to winning the past two years as they went 23-2 in the regular season and captured back-to-back Big East titles. So it felt awfully foreign to the Bearcats to s...

  2. Midseason review: Connecticut

    Brian Bennett

    Connecticut Huskies Record 3-3 (0-1 Big East) Connecticut was the wise-guy pick to win the Big East this season. The Huskies got on a roll to end 2009 and returned most of their starters. It looked like the time for a breakout year had arriv...

  3. Midseason review: Louisville

    Brian Bennett

    Louisville Cardinals Record: 3-2 (0-0 Big East) It's still hard to tell just how good Louisville is this season. But this much appears obvious: the Cardinals are a lot better than they were a year ago. They have beaten the teams on their sch...

  4. Midseason review: Pittsburgh

    Brian Bennett

    Pittsburgh Panthers Record: 2-3 (0-0 Big East) There is no more disappointing team in the Big East -- and few are more disappointing nationally -- through the season's first half than Pittsburgh. The Panthers were coming off 19 wins the past...

  5. Midseason review: South Florida

    Brian Bennett

    South Florida Bulls Record: 3-2 (0-1 Big East) South Florida has made a lot of progress in its first year under Skip Holtz and looks solid in many areas. Unfortunately, one of the places where that is not true is at the most important spot: qua...

  6. Midseason review: Rutgers

    Brian Bennett

    Rutgers Scarlet Knights Record: 3-2 (1-0 Big East) It's no stretch to say Rutgers' season was hanging by a thread going into last week's conference opener against Connecticut. The Scarlet Knights had suffered back-to-back home losses against...

  7. Midseason review: Syracuse

    Brian Bennett

    Syracuse Orange Record: 4-1 (1-0 Big East) Rarely does one win make a season. For Syracuse, one victory has shaped the course of a half-season. Had the Orange lost their Big East opener to South Florida, people could continue to cast a skept...

  8. West Virginia midseason review

    Brian Bennett

    West Virginia coach Bill Stewart got a little uncharacteristically testy in his first couple of media sessions after the 20-14 loss at LSU. If Stewart was on edge or upset, you couldn't blame him. A couple of special-teams plays in that game could ha...

  9. Midseason review: West Virginia

    Brian Bennett

    Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett Last year's struggles in converting the offense to a more diversified attack have paid dividends in 2009. West Virginia scored at least 30 points in each of its first five games and probably would have done it...

  10. Midseason review: Syracuse

    Brian Bennett

    Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett When is a 2-4 record considered progress? When you're Syracuse and you've suffered through hopeless losing seasons for four years prior. The Orange might not have the record to show for it, but they're vast...

  11. Midseason review: South Florida

    Brian Bennett

    Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett Can we just copy and paste the midseason reviews from 2007 and 2008 here? We kid South Florida. But the last three first halves have been eerily familiar: undefeated starts, including a big statement win, foll...

  12. Midseason review: Rutgers

    Brian Bennett

    Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett The warning signs were there in the preseason for Rutgers. Uncertainty at quarterback and receiver. The loss of some solid playmakers on defense. The lack of an explosive running game. Still, those like yours ...

  13. Midseason review: Pittsburgh

    Brian Bennett

    Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett Things could be even better for Pittsburgh right now. The Panthers had a 31-17 lead late in the third quarter at NC State but couldn't hold on, falling 38-31. Had they won that game, they would be 7-0 right no...

  14. Midseason review: Louisville

    Brian Bennett

    Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett Is it possible that Louisville is better than its 2-4 record? After all, the Cardinals nearly won at Kentucky, were in the game late at Utah and moved the ball very effectively last week at Connecticut. The...

  15. Midseason review: Cincinnati

    Brian Bennett

    Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett Cincinnati had the best year in school history in 2008, winning 11 games and making it to the Orange Bowl. Who knew that was just a prelude to something bigger? The Bearcats never got into the top 10 last year...

  16. Midseason review: Connecticut

    Brian Bennett

    Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett Connecticut is 4-2 at the midway point and can only regret the ones that got away. The Huskies could easily be 6-0 right now. They led 10-0 in the fourth quarter at home against North Carolina, only to lose 12...
