The Bearcats are tabbed fourth in another poll, the real one, the coaches one. Meanwhile Sean Kilpatrick found himself on the pre season first team for the Big East. A well deserved nod for the White Plains native.

It was a different group, and a different sample size, but the result remained the same, Bearcats fourth. This time in the official pre season poll, with the coaches making the picks. Here is the full projected standings from the coaches poll.

2012-13 Preseason Coaches' Poll
1. Louisville (14) - 196
2. Syracuse - 175
3. Notre Dame (1) - 166
4. Cincinnati -- 152

It is what it is. The other big news from the Big East media day in New York City is that Sean Kilpatrick has been named preseason First Team All Big East.

2012-13 Preseason All-BIG EAST First Team
Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati, G, Jr., 6-4, 221, White Plains, N.Y.
Otto Porter, Georgetown, F, So., 6-8, 205, Sikeston, Mo.
Gorgui Dieng, Louisville, C, Jr., 6-10, 225, Dakar, Senegal
Jack Cooley, Notre Dame, F, Sr., 6-9, 244, Glenview, Ill.
Vincent Council, Providence, G, Sr., 6-2, 180, Brooklyn, N.Y.

Surprisingly Kila is the only Bearcat on the pre season teams. Neither Cashmere Wright or Jaquon Parker were named so much as an honorable mention. But, you know, par for the course. And now some Kila Adidas Nation's highlights, just because.
