Big East media picks Cards to finish seventh

New, 10 comments

Yikes.

The annual media poll was released this morning in order to formally commence this year's Big East football media day in Newport, R.I.

Defending champ West Virginia was the runaway favorite to repeat, snatching 22 of the possible 24 first-place votes.

Here's how the entire poll looked:

1. West Virginia (22) - 189 pts
2. South Florida (1) - 149 pts
3. Pittsburgh (1) - 128 pts
4. Rutgers - 110 pts
5. Cincinnati - 98 pts
6. Connecticut - 97 pts
7. Louisville - 69 pts
8. Syracuse - 24 pts

Seventh by 28 points? Double yikes.

Louisville was picked to win the league before the start of the 2005 season, and was tabbed as the runner-up in both 2006 and 2007.

Triple yikes.
