If you have no natural rooting interest in this Sunday's Super Bowl, for whom should you pull?
If you want to base it just on Big East connections, it looks like the Indianapolis Colts are the pick. At least in terms of players, the Colts have more Big East alums than the New Orleans Saints. Here's a look at those tie-ins for Sunday's big game:
Running back Donald Brown was the 2008 Big East offensive player of the year at UConn.
Star defensive end Dwight Freeney, of course, went to Syracuse.
Punter Pat McAfee was West Virginia's kicker and punter last season.
Linebacker Clint Session starred at Pitt.
Cincinnati product Tyjuan Hagler is a linebacker on the practice squad.
There are, however, a few connections on the coaching staff.
Running backs coach Bret Ingalls was a Louisville assistant from 1995-96. Special teams assistant Mike Mallory was the Cardinals' defensive backs coach in 2007. And assistant strength and conditioning coach Adam Bailey attended and worked at Louisville.
Coaching assistant Mike Cerullo spent time on the Syracuse staff.
