Can Pitt football win the Big East in 2012? (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)
The last installment of the Big East Confab for the spring is out and this one had to do with preseason football picks to win the conference championship.I missed the deadline for this one and it's probably a good thing. Even though football season is a ways off, I can't help but think the conference is winnable this year. The preseason favorites I've seen the most are Louisville and Rutgers. I think each of those teams could win it as well as South Florida and Pitt.
Even in a wide open Big East, I just don't see Syracuse, Cincinnati, Connecticut, or Temple making a run this year.
I would have had a difficult time picking a team. I really like Pitt's chances this season, but that would come off as extreme homerism considering the Panthers aren't being picked by many to be in contention (I'll have a bit more on this next week, by the way). Louisville is the trendy pick, but I really need to see more from them.
