Cards picked next-to-last in Big East

For the second straight season the Louisville football team has been picked to finish seventh in the Big East by the media in its preseason poll. Quite a rapid and dramatic fall from grace for a program which was tabbed as the preseason favorite or runner-up in each of its first three seasons in the conference.

Here's the complete poll:

Rank Team Points
1. Pittsburgh (8) 161
2. West Virginia (5) 151
3. Cincinnati (8) 144
4. USF (3) 130
5. Rutgers 126
6. Connecticut 74
7. Louisville 51
8. Syracuse 27


Yeah I'm just going to go ahead and say it: I don't care how bad this league is, Pitt will not win it.

For more on this, I'd like to point you in the direction of the latest meeting of The Octonion.
