A big hat tip to the Rutgers Blog Bleed Scarlet, who yesterday pointed out that on October 24th, ESPN has chosen to show a horrific Illinois (1-4) at Purdue (1-5) game on ESPN 2 over UConn (3-2) at West Virginia (4-1) or the USF (5-0) at Pitt (4-1).
Seriously? ESPN chose Ron Zook and his team with the nation's 104th ranked defense playing on the road against a 1-5 Purdue team that is going to get spanked by Ohio State this weekend over both of these strong Big East matchups? The decision could look even more ludicous if South Florida pulls off the upset over Cincinatti tonight.
Well done ESPN, well done indeed.
