Villanova is Not the Big East Preseason Favorite

At least according to the coaches.

The annual preseason poll came out today and Seton Hall just barely scraped past Nova, who had been #1 in this poll for five years straight:

Nova has won the Big East regular season in five of the last six years while claiming four of the last five conference tournament titles.

And Kyle probably doesn’t want to hear it, but the Cats didn’t truly become an elite program until UConn, Syracuse, Pitt, WVU, and Louisville left the conference.

Time’s yours.

    We miss John Cheney with his rants at the referee, Temple, the media, threatening to kill the opposing coach and sending 1 of his “goons” to deliberately hurt an opponent’s player. We also miss how his players would talk about all the “life lessons” they learned from Coach.

    Kevin, your comment at the end of this post makes you a bigger troll than anyone who has ever commented on this website.
