Who's Going To Win The Big East In 2012? (Answer: Everyone)

If the experts to are to believed, Greg Schiano left the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in the best position in the history of the program.

CBSSports.com, College Football News and the National Football Post all think Rutgers will be the team to represent the Big East in whatever disappointing BCS bowl game our rep ends up in this season.

While Rutgers has been considered to be on the upper tier of the conference, it's a big surprising to see so many people picking them in lieu of the Louisville Cardinals. Aren't they supposed to go undefeated?

The Orlando Sentinel did tab the Cardinals to win the conference, though nearby South Florida is Phil Steele's pick.

What all of this basically tells me is that nobody really knows what to expect out of the conference this year. I wouldn't be surprised if any of these teams won the conference and I wouldn't be surprised if none of them did (well, maybe Louisville). Cincinnati has a way of sneaking up on people when no one expects them to and Pitt does its best work when no one is looking.

Most Big East seasons involve one massive disappointment and one unexpected team that makes a run, so don't think we know anything about how this season will play out just yet.
