Had to get a quick mention of this in, but congratulations to the Fighting Wannstaches for their current ranking of #24 in the AP poll following Thursday's upset of South Florida.
The Panthers will be resting until October 18, when they take on Navy, so odds are they will probably move up a few spots by then based purely on my speculation that some teams in front of them will lose between now and then.
USF fell from #10 to #19 with last week's loss, and they are currently the only other Big East team in the top 25. UConn dropped out following their blowout loss to Butch Davis's North Carolina Tar Heels, who are two spots ahead of Pitt at #22. Pitt is also in first place in the Big East at 2-0. Raise your hand if you saw any of this coming after week one.
In other rankings of local interest, Penn State remains at #6 on the heels of their 20-6 win at Purdue, and Terrelle Pryor's Ohio State Buckeyes are #12 following a tough 20-17 win at Wisconsin. Pryor was 13-19 for 144 yards and a pick while adding 20 yards and a touchdown on the ground. As for WVU, they're 3-2 after a narrow win over 1-4 Rutgers, which puts them nowhere near the top 25.

I've been at Pitt for 4 years, so I've been here just as long as the Stache.

I think the football team has been ranked in as many polls as the basketball team has been unranked (3).
