More Big East Preseason Rankings

It's that time of the year and the National Football Post has yet another set of preseason Big East rankings to consider.

Pitt again didn't draw very high marks as the Panthers finished fifth in the NFP rankings:

5. Pittsburgh: The Panthers began the Paul Chryst era, and all eyes will be on the former Wisconsin offensive coordinator as he makes his head-coaching debut. Chryst is exceptional at maximizing the talent of his QB, so we’ll see if Tino Sunseri can play better in a more traditional offense. The coaching staff needs to identify the right combination of offensive linemen this fall that can play consistently well and protect the QB. Ray Graham is expected to return after undergoing knee surgery, but do the Panthers have enough playmakers and depth along the defensive line?

I continue to be amazed at the amount of respect the Bearcats are getting in these sorts of things. Cincinnati ranked third in this ranking, despite losing so much talent. But that's why they're preseason rankings and mean little.

Cincinnati's the big focus for Pitt as the two teams will clash in the first Big East game early this season.

Louisville finished first in the rankings.
