Mayday, Mayday. The following positions appear to need the most help for each Big East team after spring ball:

Cincinnati: The defense as a whole could use more experience and playmakers, but linebacker and safety have the biggest need for more depth.

Connecticut: Just like last year, the Huskies need to find some reliable receivers. They'll hope some incoming recruits bring something to the table.

Louisville: If the Cardinals' defensive line doesn't get bolstered by incoming junior college players this summer, their defense could be in for a long fall.

Pittsburgh: The Panthers hope Robb Houser is healthier and more effective this summer than he was in the spring. If not, center could be a major question mark.

Rutgers: See Huskies, UConn. The Scarlet Knights are in desperate need of receivers to complement Tim Brown.

South Florida: Ditto for the Bulls on the O-line, though South Florida does have talent at the position. Health and chemistry are the bigger concerns.

Syracuse: The Orange need help in a lot of areas, but no position is more pressing than offensive line right now after a rough spring by the big guys up front.

West Virginia: Is there an echo in here? The Mountaineers, too, have problems on the offensive line, mostly due to inexperience.
