Tonight is very important for the Big East. Counter to internet rumors the Big East and Playboy will not be announcing a patnership to test the idea of naked cheerleaders on the sideline. Some bullshit about family friendly environments was the stumbling block between the parties. To me, this would have presented a great opportunity to begin the birds and bees discussion.
Rather, the importance of tonight for the Big East lies in the matchup of Rutgers v. UNC. This is an opportunity for a middle tier Big East team to destroy a middle tier ACC team on national TV. As much talk as there has been about the dominance of the SEC. There has been equal discussion on how bad the ACC and Big East has been so far this season. This is the first match-up of a weekend with some huge OOC games for Big East teams.
In the spirit of kicking my crack habit and Big East togetherness I will do a live blog during tonight's game. So stop in for commentary on everything from hot cheerleaders to how much people from New Jersey smell. Also, if you're a betting man take Rutgers at -4.
