Just as the Pac-10 will release its media poll next week, the Big East released its preseason predictions today.
Syracuse, Washington's season-opening opponent, was picked last in the league.
Here's their one-paragraph summation of the Orange:
Syracuse was picked to finish eighth in the league. The Orange added three more victories to the win column in 2006, under the tutelage of second-year head coach Greg Robinson. SU finished 4-8 overall, including a 1-6 mark in conference play. Syracuse brings back 12 starters this season. Last year's BIG EAST sack leader, defensive end Jameel McClain, returns for his senior campaign.
