However, am I the only fan who is finding it rather difficult to get excited about this upcoming game against Temple?My excitement towards playing Temple is borderline anemic...and then to start thinking about playing regular match-ups with Memphis? I think I just got sick.This isn't true about all of our new conference mates and I know it takes time to develop some of these rivals (especially if they get into the thick of the conference chase, things really get exciting). But right now - I am just not feeling it.With that being said, the Bearcats need to go out and beat the Owls to no end like Rutgers did. One team at a time and keep marching forward!Go Bearcats! Beat the Owls!

Blitz- I think the OP did say you guys blew them out. His words are "The Bearcats need to go out and beat the Owls to no end like Rutgers did". That means to me that Rutgers blew the Owls out, so let's do the same.
Seminole- I agree with your OP about not being too excited about Temple. Certainly is not as exciting as playing Pitt, WVU or even Syracuse (spare me about how bad Pitt and Syracuse has been and how good Temple has been of late).

Teams that I am excited about playing in the New Big East in no particular order:Boise, Louisville, USF, Rutgers, UCF, Navy, SDSUTeams that I am neutral about:
Memphis, Houston, UConnTeams that I could give a rats ass about:Temple, SMU
Only reason Memphis is neutral is because there is the potential for them to turn their program around and be competitive with us and Louisville. Our 3 programs come from similar backgrounds and could form a nice 3 way rivalry. Also, Memphis is a fun town.

Since they play football a grand total of 12 times per year, I pretty much appreciate every opportunity to see them.I live 800 miles away, and can make only one game per year. I pretty much feel deprived. From where I sit, it's amazing what people will come up with to stay away - "I don't like the QB", "the opponent stinks", "our bowl is gonna suck anyway"...Makes me damn sick.
