Next Tuesday is Big East media day in Newport, R.I. Each team will bring its head coach and selected players; all the coaches meet with the media in the same room for an hour, followed by an hour with all the players.
Here's the list of players who are coming to Rhode Island for their close-ups (and lobster bibs):
LB Scott Lutrus, OG Zach Hurd, DT Kendall Reyes, FB Anthony Sherman
OL Mark Wetterer, LB Brandon Heath
RB Joe Martinek, S Joe Lefeged
QB B.J. Daniels, C Sampson Genus
LB Derrell Smith, LB Doug Hogue, S Mike Holmes, OL Ryan Bartholomew, P Rob Long
A couple of thoughts:
Obviously, the star power here is from Lewis, Baldwin, Romeus, Devine, Collaros and Daniels. I expect big crowds in front of each of those players.
A tip of the cap to Syracuse for bringing punter Rob Long. Nice to see special-teamers get some recognition, and Long should be up for some awards this year.
Who will eat the most lobsters at the clam bake? My early money is on Hurd, Bartholomew and Genus. When in doubt, go with the offensive linemen.
Anyone else missing from this list you would have liked to see on it? And what questions would you have for some of these guys?
