Top Offensive Performers in the Big East

For those who haven't been following or have simply refused to read (mom), every week this season I have ranked the top ten individual performances in the Big East. For the sole purpose of humoring myself, I have used these rankings to chronicle (TM) who the top individual performers in the conference have been this season. The scoring system is pretty basic, a tenth place finish earns a player one point, a ninth place finish two points, and so on and so on.

The regular season has now come to a close, and a total of 36 offensive players have been honored.

For the final rankings I used two tiebreakers, the first being total number of appearances on the list, and the second being player of the week awards. The amount of times a player appeared on the list is the number in parentheses.

Definitely far from an exact science, but still sort of fun.

According to this system, the offensive player of the year in the Big East is Ray Rice, who won with consistency by being the only player on offense or defense to make the list in each of his team's 12 games.

Here's how the rest of the final standings look:

  1. Ray Rice, RB, Rutgers: 64 points (12)
