Big East Media Day will be here soon and the players who'll be attending from each school have been announced.
Of course, Doug "America's Greatest Human Being" Marrone will be there as well.
The big story, as it is ever year, is "who will eat their weight in lobster meat?" Last year was a disappointment on every level. Mike Holmes, Derrell Smith, Rob Long and Ryan Bartholomew all came up short in their bid for immortality.
The Ghost of Ryan Durand haunts the preceding like a spectral warning from above. This time, will anyone dare attempt to match his seven-lobster record? It seems as though no one has even tried in the years since (Even Marrone only are one in 2009. ONE!).
Maybe, just maybe, this is finally the year.
