Players to Watch
UConn lost its best player when tailback Donald Brown (2,083 rushing yards in 2008) left early for the NFL. Now the Huskies will try to improve a passing game that ranked 109th in the country last season. New offensive coordinator JOE MOORHEAD, who spent the last five seasons at Akron, plans to add a no-huddle look to the game plan.... Making another bid for its first Big East title, Rutgers must first find suitable replacements for five departed starters on defense. The Knights will build around senior middle linebacker RYAN D'IMPERIO, who had 93 tackles and 5½ sacks last season in his first full year as a starter.... Perhaps no one in the conference has a tougher act to follow than West Virginia senior quarterback JARRETT BROWN (left), who takes over for the prolific Pat White. In a reserve role over the past three seasons Brown threw 125 passes, with five touchdowns and four interceptions.... New Syracuse coach DOUG MARRONE, who spent the last three seasons as offensive coordinator of the pass-happy New Orleans Saints, is looking for a quarterback. Former Duke point guard GREG PAULUS is an option. Paulus, who has one year of eligibility left, has not played since high school, in '05, but he entered fall practice third on the depth chart.
