FWIW, I am always wrong when it comes to Pitt in the tourney so DD's scenario is probably more likely.

It's the NCAA tourney, so yes. Pitt will shoot 10-23 from the line, and Woodall will have 8 turnovers. Dejan will throw the players under the bus and absolve Dixon of blame until Dixon officially leaves for USC, at which point he will excoriate him as the horse runs free from the stable.

Is it wrong of me to be salivating at what is in store for PITT? What i mean is, how are they gonna lose this year? In what insane way will they fall on their faces? I know how this story ends, just not when.

I feel bad because i watch Pitt for the train wreck that is to follow.

I just want them to win Thursday just so they have a shot at Gonzaga who is the most overrated team ever! Win Thursday and I will be happy win or lose on Saturday!

Nate Silver ‏@fivethirtyeight
West Final 4 Odds: Gonzaga 33%, Ohio St. 25%, Wisconsin 9%, N Mex 9%, Arizona 8%, K-State 5%, Pitt 5%, Notre Dame 2%


5%? That seems low. I mean, if they get past Wichita State, they match up well with Gonz...crap, it's happening. I'm talking myself into Pitt again. /tasers self

Pitt will probably be down by ten at halftime. They will then go on a run and cut the lead down to one, and yeah they will blow it.

I kept thinking, Pitt gets into the Gonzaga bracket and this joke of a year is the one in which they wait to lose in the final four.

I expected Pitt to get a 6 or 7 seed, and lose in the next round to whatever 2/3 seed they faced. I am glad that they are getting a shot at a 1 seed so early because I expected them to lose in this round anyway. On top of that, Gonzaga is the least scary of the 1 seeds IMO. I read a stat last night that they had the worst SOS for a #1 seed in the last 20 years (97th overall, I think). Either way, whenever Pitt bows out of this tournament, I am sure that it will be in gut-wrenching fashion.

It would be nice if Pitt played the spoiler for once.

Different circumstances, though no idea if the result will change. That 9 seed was the end to a bitterly disappointing season full of underachievement. I don't think you can say that about this team, which is on the upswing overall.

I think Pitt will be fine today. Which means they will lose.

Yeah, they've been practicing the mental anguish of an early exit for a decade now. :pop:

Hopefully you're right, but circumstances don't necessarily play into Pitt's ability to provide more creative ways to lose. :scared:

Pitt will lose. FSU will be in the B10. Clemson will join the SEC. Miami will go to the B12. Pitt will play in NEAC with Penn State-Harrisburg.

Clemson is not wanted by the SEC. They will be in the Big XII with Miami.

I have a meeting today from 2-3:30. What kind of idiots schedule a meeting during March Madness? Debating on either not going, or sitting in the back of the room (lots of people in this meeting) and just watching the Pitt game on my ipad.
