The 2011 Card Chronicle Preseason All-Big East Team

New, 22 comments

The Big East Coast Bias is organizing a Big East online media preseason poll and all-conference team in preparation for media day next week. This, as you might have already guessed, is my contribution.

As far as how the selections below were made, I think past performance always has to have more bearing than predicted performance in these types of things (unless you're stating outright that your picks are based on predicted future performance, like Phil Steele). So the bulk of what you see below is based on what these players have done thus far in their college careers, although predicted future performance was factored in on a couple of occasions.
