8/11 Around the Big East

Who will make plays in Storrs this fall? More practice notes.

With Ben Mauk's final appeal denied, Dustin Grutza will likely start for the Bearcats in 2008. Former TE Connor Barwin has switched to the defensive side of the ball, and is looking sharp.

Louisville's team this fall will have a local flavor. One of the biggest question marks this year will be the play of Hunter Cantwell.

Over the weekend, Pitt reeled in one of their top recruiting targets. Several heated camp battles are still ongoing, but they won't have many worries on a deep defensive line.

South Florida is bringing back a lot of experience at WR this year. Matt Grothe is slimming down in hopes of improved mobility. On the other hand, George Selvie is trying to put on weight. USF is up to 26,000 season tickets. Other notes.

Syracuse is still shuffling its depth charts. The Orange received another in a long series of blows when WR Dan Sheeran broke his fibula on Saturday. Sheeran may have been in line to start. As a result, Bruce Williams, who was projected to start at safety, has permanently moved back to offense. They have a very thin roster, and can't afford many more mishaps.

Bill Stewart is still insisting that West Virginia will pass more in 2008. Brad Starks and Jock Sanders are being tried at different positions on offense
