Considering the Big East just got $20 million from West Virginia, another $5 million from TCU and $5 million more from Pitt and Syracuse as part of their initial money pay to depart, you would think the Big East would have no excuse for repeating last year’s inexcusable screw-up of running out of lobsters in the Big East clambake. But no, for a second straight year the lobsters were gone before the players were done trying to set records.

Pitt, however, finished an embarrassingly bad last place in the unofficial rankings. Only 2 lobsters consumed? Can’t tell you how disappointed I am in this performance.

  1. Louisville
  2. USF
  3. Rutgers
  4. Cinci
  5. Pitt
  6. UConn
  7. Syracuse
  8. Temple

On the plus side, it will be harder to disappoint expectations with that as the preseason spot.
