Noles News 09.12.11

We already dropped a bunch of knowledge on you with the FSU Opponent Review, but there is still more FSU news to discuss.

FSU

Injury questions abound today and we should have some non-answers from Jimbo at his 11:30 press conference. Has there been any progress on Willie Haulstead's concussion? It's bee almost a month since Joyner popped him, and for Haulstead to still be having headaches is not a good sign. Bert Reed limped off after Nick O'Leary stepped on his foot, twisting Reed's ankle. What is his status? Some have reported that Xavier Rhodes got hurt as well. We'll have to see if there is any truth to that. 

Join us at 11:30 for Jimbo's press conference, and later this afternoon for the CSU game review. After that, it's all Oklahoma this week.

Rivals

Oklahoma's Travis Lewis might be back for the FSU game. I am skeptical that he will be effective.

Questioning N.C. State's defense.

Most OU fans are very cocky, and since OU stomped FSU by 5 TDs before pulling its starters last season, they should be. But here are a few reasons to not be so cocky.

Excellent review of BC's game against UCF>

National

The Big East had a terrible weekend. Any argument that the Big East is close to the ACC is laughable.

After a promising opening weekend that saw the league post a perfect 8-0 record and beat two teams from BCS automatic qualifying conferences, the Big East took it on the chin in week two. Big East teams went 0-3 in games against teams from AQ conferences (all on the road) and Louisville lose a nationally televised game against Sun Belt Conference champion FIU. Meanwhile, even those games that looked like gimmes for Pittsburgh and Syracuse were far more difficult than expected. West Virginia struggled to move the ball in the first half but found its rhythm against Norfolk State. The only Big East team that played well for the entire game was South Florida, which easily dispatched of Ball State 37-7.
