7. Syracuse will challenge for a bowl bid: The Orange haven't made the postseason since going 6-6 in 2004. They'll have a chance this year.

To Bye or Not To Bye? In the Big East Tournament, It Doesn't Matter -- NCAABB FanHouse
Frankly, the Big East should feel good about itself; it's best teams are winning against top 38 teams at a higher rate than the rest of the nation. And face it, there's always going to be more urgency for a team fighting to move up on the seed line than a top seed that's just trying to avoid injuries on the way to March. Perhaps the extra day's rest is actually an advantage.
