Good morning, Newport: Big East media day at 9
Should be a busy, newsy morning here in Newport, with lots of questions potentially answered as the Big East football media gathering takes place at the Hotel Viking. One we know we'll get the answer to: Where will USF fall in the league's preseason media poll? Word is we will not be finding out long-awaited details on the conference's divisional splits for 2013, and we'll be following up on an ESPN report that the league is looking into a Florida bowl game for its champion to play in after this season.
We'll get a new roster for USF, which should mean news on off-season attrition, with several backups on scholarship potentially not returning for 2012. There's a chance we'll find out if Notre Dame transfer Aaron Lynch got his hardship waiver, though I'll caution that I've heard nothing yet to suggest good news on that front. So stay tuned, and remember that today is a good day to follow me on Twitter at @gregauman. Stay tuned.
