Mohamed Sanu, Tavon Austin Named First Team Big East, Stedman Bailey Named Second Team

The Big East released its postseason All-Big East teams and my is there some controversy. Exactly how the voting came to have Tavon Austin as the first team wide receiver and not Stedman Bailey, who led the league in receiving yards despite catching 42 fewer passes than Sanu. With the way he played down the stretch, I think you could have made make the case for Dexter Heyman as a first team linebacker as well.

The first team is below and you can view the second team below the jump. What other snubs do you see on the team?
