Inside Look: Tony Pike and Mardy Gilyard left Cincinnati but new coach Butch Jones can easily replace them with Zach Collaros and Armon Binns. Tino Sunseri will likely take over as quarterback in Pittsburgh but with Dion Lewis the ground game is the main focus. Luckily for West Virginia they have game changer Noel Devine on the ground game now especially with the loss of quarterback Jarrett Brown. Rutgers returns quarterback Tom Savage, who was a big part of Rutgers bowl game win over UCF last year. UConn will play harder with the lost memory of cornerback Jasper Howard in their hearts and luckily have running back Jordan Todman who had five 100+ rushing yard games last season. Longtime QB Matt Grothe is gone after leading South Florida to a contender in the Big East. B.J. Daniels will take over full time after playing in for the injured Grothe last season. Louisville hasn't had a successful season since the times of Brian Brohm and are hoping back Victor Anderson can change that who struggled last year rushing for 473 yards and having various injuries. Syracuse is in a tough spot. The only bright spot was in wide receiver Mike Williams who was dismissed from the team last season and went into the draft. The Orange need back Delone Carter to have any chance in surviving the big East.
