ESPN's Andrea Adelson has updated her Big East rankings for the first time since spring football wrapped, and she's still going with the Cards as the league favorites heading into the 2012 season.
1. Louisville: Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater looked better than ever this spring, giving me renewed confidence the Cardinals are going to be the preseason favorite in the league. The secondary should be exceptionally strong, and the offensive line should be better. Questions remain at running back and with depth in the front seven. But of all the teams in the league, I think the Cardinals have the most stability headed into the season. Plus, it hugely helps to have Charlie Strong entering Year 3.
Adelson did shake things up a touch, surprisingly putting South Florida at No. 2, followed by Rutgers and Cincinnati.
DePaul remained unranked.
