Florida isn't playing that great. They're vulnerable.

Definitely vulnerable. I think this will at least be an interesting game.

They're bracing themselves on the Florida campus with "Expect Defeat" banners. :pop:

One thing that strikes me as being different about this Pitt team compared to previous ones is that they seem to be peaking now. Normally, Dixon's teams peak much earlier in the season.

I dont think this is a final four team by any stretch, but it is nice to see them playing with so much swagger this post-season (havent seen that in a while). They are 4-1 in their past 5, with the one loss being a close one to a #1 seed.

I love the attitude of this team as well. They play hard from buzzer to buzzer (See the 2nd Clemson game). Plus, look at Cam Wright's quotes from the post-game yesterday. Tells you all you need to know about the mindset of this team.

They peaked about 5 games into ACC play. If they beat Florida, I'll agree they turned it on again. Otherwise, all it is is a drubbing of two bad teams (WF and CU) and a nice win against UNC

So if Sean Miller's gone, what about his brother Archie? Could Pitt bring him home?
