Before the season, the six Big East football blogs on SB Nation at the time got together and tried to predict how the season would play out. Now that the actual postseason awards are in, it's always fun to look back and see just how horrible wrong we were.

Big East Standings

Bloggers Actual
Pittsburgh (5) UConn
West Virginia West Virginia
Cincinnati Pittsburgh
UConn (1) Syracuse
Rutgers USF
USF Louisville
Syracuse Cincinnati
Louisville Rutgers


So, rough start. Then again, It's not like anyone else did any better.

Oh and that lone UConn vote for No. 1 at the beginning of the year? That came from The UConn Blog. He's a homer, but it turns out he was a correct homer.
