With current and future members scattered across the country, the Big East is a conference in transition.

So as he plots his next move, commissioner Mike Aresco needs to bring his constituency together. Aresco told The Courant last week that he is looking for a consensus from his members and he needs to hear ideas.

"We need to gather in one room," Aresco said.

That will happen Friday, when representatives assemble at a Dallas hotel for a conference meeting. There will be several topics on the agenda, including an expansion strategy and a plan for the departure of the seven non-FBS schools.

UConn will be represented by athletic director Warde Manuel and Rachel Rubin, chief of staff to President Susan Herbst. With Herbst unavailable to attend because of a previous commitment, Rubin will represent the president's office.

The meeting will gather members left from the old Big East (UConn, Cincinnati, South Florida and Temple) with incoming members (Central Florida, Tulane, Memphis, SMU, Houston, East Carolina and Navy).

San Diego State is also expected to attend, although the school's status with the Big East remains in question.

San Diego State was to enter with Boise State, providing a West Coast presence as football-only members. But Boise State announced on New Year's Eve that it's staying in the Mountain West. San Diego State might decide to also remain in the Mountain West, although Aresco said last week he hopes the school remains committed to the conference and he'll try to convince school officials to join.

      The Guyer coaches believe his work ethic is unmatched and he is often mentioned in the same breath as former standout Taylor Bible’ now at Texas. Kottman has verbally committed to San Diego State.””If he were three inches taller’ he’d be getting offers from everyone’” said Guyer head coach John Walsh of Kottman’ who is six-feet-one-inch and 248 pounds. “He doesn’t have the prototypical height’ but he is the strongest kid in our program and the strongest kid I’ve ever had in the program.”‘Strongest by far’ actually. ”His power clean is an amazing 350 pounds’ which equates to grabbing a man of the same weight by his belt loop and hurling him across the field. He can bench press over 300 pounds and maxes out on squats at 575. Walsh said Kottman did a backflip while standing still during a visit from college scouts. ””He’s a freak’ plain and simple’” Walsh added. “He has a motor that is unmatched and teams have to commit two or three guys on him every game.””It hasn’t come easy’ Kottman said. When he was younger’ he and his brother Brad — another former Guyer standout who now pitches for Rice — were pretty small. -

      It’s 4th down and 13 with just 25 seconds remaining in regulation. Longview High (TX) is poised to pin the Denton Guyer (TX) squad deep in their own end and set up a Longview vs. Cibolo Steele (TX) battle for Texas 5A Division 2 State Championship. A moment of hesitation by the Punter and an oncoming freight train in the form of DT Dan Kottman however, changed everything. Kottman blocked the Punt leading to a recovery by Kamrhan Jones at the Longview 15 yard line. Denton went on to drive for a last second TD and kicked the PAT to secure a 28-27 come from behind victory and a place in the State Championship. Players make plays.

      Listed at 6’1 255lbs Dan Kottman anchored a stingy run defense for his Denton squad and wrecked havoc on opposing Offensive lines from his Defensive Tackle spot. Although Kottman enjoyed great success playing DT in High School his 4.68 speed will most likely afford him the opportunity to make better use of his pass rush skills and foot speed via a Linebacker role. As a ’12 signee for Coach Rocky Long and the San Diego State Aztecs the comparisons to recent Aztec great Miles Burris are not unexpected. Similar to Burris it appears Kottman has the ability to maintain an eye towards the ball while shedding and/or avoiding would be blockers. There’s an explosiveness to his tackling form and his speed/strength combination could force Coach Long and staff to find early playing time for the Freshman. Most notable from game film is how quick Kottman is off the snap. Larger blockers struggle coping with his quick first step and foot speed, and smaller more agile blockers struggle combating his strength. When asked as to a preferred position within the Aztecs 3-3-5- scheme Kottman replied ” I am not exactly sure as to the position, (but) I will be ready to perform in whatever spot they see fit for me”. Expect that opportunity “to perform” early in the ’12 season.
