I mean yeah the football had been subpar but the basketball is/was great. Surely even DePaul could hang with New Castle or NA, no?

I see you out here on these streets ulf, and I like your work.

Speaking of Pittsburgh, it might be time to give them the Ken Pomeroy Underachiever Award. Let me list nine of the top 10 teams in his rankings, and you tell me what they all have in common: Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Louisville, Duke, Kansas, Syracuse, Minnesota, Ohio State. The answer is, they're all nationally ranked. Minnesota is fairly low at no. 23, but the other teams are no. 12 or better. The Pittsburgh Panthers, ranked sixth by Pomeroy when you take all the important metrics into account, are nowhere to be seen. That's because they've managed to lose four Big East games already, one of which came at the hands of lowly Rutgers. But what about those other three losses: Louisville on the road by three, Cincinnati at home by nine, Marquette at home in overtime? Not a shameful one in the bunch. Before that, the Panthers' only loss came to Michigan. The problem is, the only good win on the schedule so far is Georgetown, a team prone to scoring in the 30s on an off night.


A Jamie Dixon team underachieve? I'm shocked.

clearly pomeroys ranking does not take into account the wild inconsistency of the super panthers.

I had a good run in the tourney last year in part because I didn't have to worry about Pitt.

Seems like there is aactually guarantees in life. Death, taxes, Pitino outcoaching Dixon, Dixon outcoaching Boeheim. Nice to have the guaranteed signature conference win heading to the ACC with the Panthers next season.

Boeheim said Pitt is without a doubt the best team they've played this season. They're getting a lot better as the year goes on, mostly due to Adams improving in my opinion. Without him, they're weak underneath.

I don't know if I'd use weak, but an improving Adams significantly changes Pitt's ability to win. He has potential to be a beast.

Big win by Pitt. Was at the game and it was great. Now, they just need to focus and not lose games like tonight against Seton Hall.

Dejan drank the Kool-Aid and called Dixon a great coach. It must not be March yet.

Checked in tied at 25 in the Coaches poll.

Not bad for a team that is not going to sniff the tourney and beat a "horrendous" Georgtown team (ranked 20th).

:wink:

And not bad for a team coming off a "signature" win against the #6 team in the nation.
