Three early season previews; none by us

Just a quick article to plug three season previews for the Big East I've come across in the last few days:

Villanova by the Numbers recently posted about returning minutes and Pythagorean winning percentage, and notes that for the second season in a row, Georgetown is poised to improve over last year's Big East record.  Here's the excellent summary scatter plot:

The recently renamed GonzoBall blog - now doing business as South Orange Juice - unveiled a three-part Big East (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3).  Notable for picking Georgetown to finish second in the league.

And Rob Dauster over at Ballin' is a Habit has a nice preview, with a bit more focus on the players rather than just predicted team rank.
