We need some more hardware in the Burgh. And our next championship quest starts this afternoon.

Expectations for Pitt winning in the NCAA tourney are through the floor.

Is the Big East overrated? Probably, but who cares.

Does Pitt deserve the 3 seed? Probably not.

But we're here, so let's do this!!!!!!

There's nothing to lose, so our guys can just have fun playing ball.

Jamie Dixon's been ruining my NCAA bracket for years.

But not this year.

Just win.

And hwlp Flippy make a few bucks in the process.

Who's with me?

Pitt will gladly take WVU in the finals. And we'll be happy to beat you in triple overtime.

Although I didn't even go to Pitt so I don't know where I get off calling Pitt we.....

I really thought last year was going to be the year for Pitt. Now we're really bad on offense without
Blair, Young, etc.

But I think we try harder on defense and may even play better defensively.

The only problem with the NCAA tourney is they never let Pitt bring a physical game and call the whole tourney like it's girls' basketball. I'd love to see that change and for NCAA basketball to be more physical like it is in the Big East.

the guard play is a lil better.

if they had this kind of shooting last year, i think they goto the final four

i agree if blair didnt leave early they would be a top 5 team. the back court is a lot better this year than it was last season

Pitt was an overachiever this season, plain and simple... With a completely re-vamped line-up, Jamie Dixon should'a been seriously considered for coach of the year.

But they just are not consistent enough to go deep into the bracket IMO.

They will definitely have their hands full with Xavier and Jordan Crawford, and I personally have their journey ending against K St.

... All this being said, I am a Pitt fan and will watch/enjoy them as long as they stay alive.

unfortunately, Penn State's final record of 11-20 (3-15 conference) and 11th place finish in the Big Ten caused them to just miss the NCAA Tournament this season... :lol:

My Cornell Big Red, bay-bee!!!

First tourney win by an Ivy League school in a dozen years.

Wisconsin Badgers are next. Should be more white guys playing in that game than a Kentucky scrimmage in the 1950's. The only tourney teams capable of a whitewash similar to Cornell-Wisconsin would be the BYU Mormons and the St. Mary's Aussies.

Truth be told, I never even attended a basketball game in 4 years at the school (we were a big time hockey school, and those games were crazy). We sucked at basketball. Penn or Princeton took the league title every year. Don't know what happened to change things.

I picked them to go to the sweet sixteen as well. Didn't have the cojones at the time to pick them to knock off top-seeded Kentucky, but they have played so well against 5th seeded Temple and 4th seeded Wisconsin so far, that anything is possible now. Consider that they play in Syracuse next weekend (roughly an hour drive from Ithaca), we can rain down threes at will, and their team is senior-laden while Kentucky is chock full o' freshman phenoms. Screw John Wall and his first overall pick status! We've got the likes of Wittman and Foote, baby! I wonder if tickets are available in the Carrier Dome next weekend. It would be a heck of a time for my first Cornell basketball game (and just a bit over a 2 hour drive for me).

Cornell laughing all the way to the Sweet 16

By David Fox, Yahoo! Sports


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A half-dozen of Louis Dale’s teammates huddled around a TV in Cornell’s locker room waiting to see if the Big Red’s point guard actually would go through with it.

The it was dropping the team’s favorite quote from the movie “Friday Night Lights” at the postgame news conference just moments after 12th-seeded Cornell secured a Sweet 16 berth by routing fourth-seeded Wisconsin 87-69 in an East Region second-round game Sunday.

“We’ve got eight seniors on this team, and we want to take this ride as long as we can because after this it’s just nothing but babies and memories, so we’ll just keep going,” Dale said.

After the “babies and memories” part, teammates Ryan Wittman and Chris Wroblewski, sitting next to Dale on the podium, covered their faces in laughter.

Meanwhile, the crowd in the locker room erupted.

“He said it! He said it!” center Jeff Foote yelled.

This was the second time in four days Cornell faced the nation with giggles. Thursday, Foote took the first question from a local columnist. He disregarded the question about academic requirements and instead talked about the ride into the stadium and the police escort.

Cornell’s players struggled to hide their laughter then, too. Foote had lost a bet earlier in the day and had to answer the first question incorrectly; Dale chimed in to answer the question seriously, and Foote later apologized to the columnist.

Is this a normal occurrence, avoiding the cliché; player-speak and showing off the team’s camaraderie?

“We normally don’t have any press conferences,” Dale said.

That’s going to change. That’s what happens when Cornell, the Cinderella darling from the Ivy League, romps past Temple and Wisconsin on the way to the Sweet 16. In Syracuse, N.Y. – 45 miles from its campus – Cornell will take on college basketball royalty in Kentucky. If Cornell somehow were to beat Kentucky, it would be the biggest NCAA tournament upset since George Mason stunned Connecticut in 2006.

Frankly, after the past two games, there’s no reason to doubt Cornell’s offense. These Ivy Leaguers can play. Cornell scored 78 points against Temple. Two days later, the Big Red put up 87 on Wisconsin. Cornell outscored its two opponents by a combined 31 points, shooting 58.8 percent from the field and 44.7 from 3-point range, absolutely toying with two of the best defensive teams in the nation.

Like Temple, Wisconsin tried and tried but found no answer for Cornell’s offense. The Badgers went to their bench for more height to use against Wittman (24 points), but that didn’t work. At the same time, Dale darted around the Badgers to score 26 points. Wroblewski finished with 12 points. So did Foote, a 7-foot former walk-on at St. Bonaventure.

That’s 74 points from four players, against a team that gave up that many points in a game just twice this season – and not since Dec. 9.

Certainly, this was cause for celebration.

“If you take it too seriously, it’s not fun anymore,” Foote said.

Babies and memories can wait. Kentucky can’t.

Same old PITT come tourney time. I know they over achieved this year but it would be nice to see a PITT team play solid ball for 40 minutes in the tourney.

I like Jamie Dixon but his post season has Bill Cowher written all over it. Dixon needs an elite player and an Indy 06 game plan.

Every year PITT under achieves in the tourney and loses to a lower seed with ONE good player. Last year they were a #1 seed with Blair and Sam Young and they still struggled.

I watched my first Cornell game this past weekend and I was impressed with this team. They were seeded too low in my estimation and potentially have another win in them. The things that impressed me were the following:

Their execution on offense is impeccable.
They play fast, but not in a hurry
They get back in transition defense as well as anyone in the country.
They are senior heavy (when you may no be the most athletic team, experience is key)

If they execute their offense like they did this past weekend they will be in the game.

Oh well...the ride was fun while it lasted. For what it's worth, eni, in my bracket, I picked Cornell to make it to the Sweet Sixteen, and I picked Kentucky to win it all. I was still hoping against hope for a big time bracket buster (after getting 27 out of 32 correct in the opening round).

Tomorrow a 6:30, the Cornell hockey team, seeded second in the East region, begins the road to the Frozen Four in Detroit. The Big Red making the Frozen Four in hockey is much more realistic than our basketball team making the Elite Eight.

Between UK, the Lakers, and the Steelers I've learned to just bet on my team every time because they win a hell of a lot more often than they lose.

Sorry bout your boys.

Honestly, I'm just looking forward to the crazy ass city-sized party that will happen if UK wins it all again. I was here in the middle of the fracas last time. The pub I frequent and used to work at is on the corner of the two roads (Woodland and Euclid) where it all begins.

Hey, I'm completely spoiled now with my Steelers winning two Lombardis in a 4 season span this past decade (especially being able to attend both games...never in my wildest dreams would I have even imagined that would be even remotely possible), and my Penguins making it to the Stanley Cup Finals each of the past 2 seasons, bringing the Cup back to the Burgh last year (I really should have kidnapped my father and made the 8+ hour drive to Detroit for game 7 and tried to scalp some tickets, especially since it was in the same city where my father and I got to experience SBXL together).

I don't follow baseball or basketball or NASCAR or soccer or golf or tennis or whatever, so I've only experienced success recently from the teams that I am truly passionate about (sure, I've lived through the 80's drought with the Steelers, and the more recent drought by the Pens which allowed us to draft the likes of Crosby, Malkin, and Fleury, but everything has been great as of late).

As for my college affiliation, you don't go to an Ivy League school for the sports teams, ya know? I knew Cornell could field quality hockey and lacrosse teams, but those NCAA tournaments are certainly not as visible as March Madness or major college football bowl games, so this run to the Sweet Sixteen for all of America to see (beating both 5th seeded Temple and 4th seeded Wisconsin by double digit margins) is something that I never would have expected...it's totally gravy for me (or icing on the cake if you prefer the sweet tooth analogy instead).

Didn't apply to Princeton. Got turned down by Harvard and Johns Hopkins and was accepted by Cornell. We couldn't afford the Ivy League tuition though (I am the first in my family to go to college...and I go Ivy...go figure). I was all set to go to Pitt instead(even had a room in one of the Towers assigned to me) since the in-state tuition was much cheaper than Cornell by a significant margin. At the last minute, though, with just over a month before classes started, I was awarded a local scholarship which paid for 65% of all tuition, room, board, books, etc. My father and grandmother drove up to Ithaca to see if I could still secure my spot that late into the process. It all ended up working out. Big culture shock coming from a working class family and a public school in NEPA when many of the folks I met up there had parents that were doctors and lawyers and they got to attend the most prestigious boarding schools up and down the east coast.

I told the Ivy League to Flippy off, cause I wanted to stay in Pittsburgh. So I had to root for Pitt and went to Pitt games even though I didn't attend there.

Living in the city of Pittsburgh for the 3 years of college was great.

If I could do it all over, I'd go to community college next time if I even went to college at all.

I'm an adjunct professor at the University of Scranton. I only teach part time, since I do not have a doctorate (when the kids arrived, furthering my education got put on the back burner). I currently teach a graduate level Advanced Educational Psychology course to Master's candidates through the Scranton Education Online program. I occassionally teach Ed Psych courses on campus as well (on both the undergraduate and graduate levels). The online stuff is more regular (I can do two of them in the spring, two in the summer, and two in the fall, since they are only 8 week courses).

Awesome! What did you get your BA/BS/MA/Whatchamicallit in? Psychology? I'm curious as I'm considering pursuing it post-grad.

How about this WVU/KY game eh? :tt2 :tt2 :tt2

Im going for WVU all the way. Their 3pt assault cant continue all the way through the Championship game. They would make for a much weaker adversary in the Final Four. Of course, MSU still has Tenn and Butler ahead before this game would have any meaning for them.

If UK doesn't step it up on D it's over. Doesn't matter how many 2s we make if we can't keep your guys from hitting them.

Great job by WVU. Congrats.

That Muzilla(?) kid seemed to run circles around our guys.

No vehicle tossing this year then. :cry:

B.A. in Psychology then M.S. in Elementary Education.

I didn't watch any basketball this evening. Just came from the gym, where I usually watch a game of some sort while on the elliptical machine, but tonight I brought some papers with me and graded them while on a recumbent bicycle instead. The only sports I watched today was the Pens-Flyers game earlier this afternoon.
