We take a break from our normal coverage of football and basketball here at BECB to bring you coverage of that other kind of football, soccer. I write about the Los Angeles Galaxy over at Yahoo! and do some MLS coverage for the East regional sites here at SB Nation. So I couldn't help but pay attention to the 2012 MLS SuperDraft today. What I saw was that the Big East dominated the draft.

After I show that to you below, we'd like to get your take on if you'd like to see Big East soccer covered here on BECB.

Here are all the Big East selections (13 of the total 38 picks, 34.2%):

First Round

No. 7 Nick DeLeon (Louisville Cardinals), D.C. United
No. 8 Andrew Jean-Baptiste (Connecticut Huskies), Portland Timbers
No. 9 Austin Berry (Louisville), Chicago Fire
No. 12 Aaron Maund (Notre Dame Fighting Irish), Toronto FC
No. 14 Tony Cascio (Connecticut), Colorado Rapids
No. 16 Dom Dwyer (South Florida Bulls), Sporting Kansas City
