The league still has some of that in it.

    Not a particularly compelling hypothetical since Rutgers isn't going anywhere, but it's a more interesting case than Rutgers finding 6 wins with a Big Ten schedule anytime soon.
    Without a doubt Rutgers would definitely be more compelling in the AAC.

    Pitt, UL, Cuse, WVU. UC was strong and USF was bipolar. UConn is UConn. The best years they had were not against Memphis, Houston, UCF, Navy, SMU and the rest of the misfit toys.
