Big East blogger at ESPN.com, Brian Bennett, is wrapping up his annual top 25 postseason football team. You may be thinking 'Isn't it a little late for that?' since we're in the middle of March.â†µ
Well, yes. Yes it is.
Still, Bennett ranked five Pitt players in the Big East top 25 list. Dion Lewis, who topped the preseason list, finished a disappointing No. 20. Going from 1,800 yards to barely over 1,000 will do that to you.â†µ
Offensive lineman Jason Pinkston came in at No. 16, wide receiver Jon Baldwin was No. 15, and defensive end Brandon Lindsey, a surprise for Pitt, came in at No. 13 after having a monster season in Greg Romeus' absence.â†µ
Fellow DE Jabaal Sheard was the highest-ranked Pitt player at No. 2. After winning the conference's Defensive Player of the Year award, tough to argue with that spot.â†µ
The No. 1 player hasn't yet been named, but it will assuredly be the Offensive Player of the Year, UConn running back Jordan Todman.â†µ
