Was hoping this would prove once and for all that Tino Sunseri wasn't worth a damn thing.

IMO, until the NBA and NFL remove age restrictions for signing professional contracts, there are no arguments to counter that the NCAA exploits players. The issue isn't about the multitude of athletes that use sports to finance education, it's the few that are forced to go to college and work for athletic departments.

Name Pitt's top 10 players. You're definitely including Tyler Boyd (sophomore). You're probably including James Conner (sophomore), Shakir Soto (sophomore), and Lafayette Pitts (junior). There are some key seniors, sure -- Todd Thomas and Anthony Gonzalez, Ray Vinopal, guard Matt Rotherham. But if some high-ceiling youngsters blossom, you could also add players like Chad Voytik (sophomore), Adam Bisnowaty (sophomore), Dorian Johnson (sophomore), Rachid Ibrahim (sophomore), Ejuan Price (junior), Matt Galambos (sophomore), or Titus Howard (sophomore) to this top 10 list.

You get what I'm after here. Most of Pitt's best players are still super-young, which will likely makes for another rather volatile, up-and-down season. But wow, could the ceiling be high when Chryst enters Year 4 in 2015. He's put together a high-caliber roster, and despite going young last year, he produced a 7-6 record with some late blossoming.

I like where Pitt is headed, but we probably shouldn't spend too much time focusing on 2015. If Pitt can improve to just a top-40 level in 2014, the Panthers could win a lot of games. They miss Florida State, Clemson, and Louisville from the opposite division, and they get Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, and Duke at home. One has to figure that trips to UNC and Miami (not to mention BC early on) will preclude a serious division title run, but those trips don't come until late in the year. If the Panthers are indeed at a top-40 level, they could legitimately be about 7-2 or 8-1 when they head to Chapel Hill on November 15.

Of course, there's nothing saying the pieces will come together consistently enough to produce that top 40 rating. But it's on the table, so I'll shut up about 2015 until a future date.

7 or 8 regular season wins would be a big step in the right direction. its unfair to expect more than that.

With Pitt, I just hope that they can limit the number of Soul-Crushing Pitt losses. A lot to ask, I know.

They will have that unexpected win that gives everyone hope, followed by a soul crushing loss or two that just kills you. It happens every year.

No matter what, I always get overly optimistic going into each Pitt season. This year is no different. I think that they can have a tremendous offense this year. They have weapons galore, a young line that is getting better, and a lot of potential at QB. Voytik getting to play in the bowl game was worth its weight in gold. If they have a few guys step up on D, they can be an 8-9 win team with their schedule.

Gonzalez and Thomas were recruited to the 2010 class, which was Wannstedt's last complete class. That's a bit of a testament to just how long a coaching transition can take, because it does feel like these two - Gonzalez especially - have been here forever. What's strange, though, is that Aaron Donald was in that same class, and it doesn't feel like he was here long enough.

What's really pathetic is to look at the 2011 class. Pretty sure like 75% of those names are no longer with the program.

The dude selling it wasn't even on the football team. The players were actually living with him, but not directly responsible.

We need players that actuall sell and lead the business.
