PITT CRACKS THE TOP 25



Get those expectations fired up again, as the Pitt Panthers have re-entered the AP Top 25 today. The 12-2 Panthers, who upset #5 Syracuse at the Carrier Dome on Saturday, are ranked #26 in the ESPN/USA Today poll. Pitt is also ranked #17 by RealTimeRPI.com. The scary part is the fact that the 17th ranking is just sixth-best among Big East teams, and that West Virginia, of all teams, is ranked #1.

If you haven't seen the Panthers in action yet, you'll have another chance on Monday night, as they travel to Cincinnati for an appearance on ESPN's Big Monday at 7 PM. Following tonight's game, the Panthers will have some serious time to rest before battling UConn on January 13.

What could be noted to be just as impressive is their follow up win against Cincinnati tonight. To post a big win against the Orange in the dome with that young crew was enjoyable, and could understand a letdown.

Dixon is coaching the hell out of that team.

What I find even more interesting is that Ron Cook opined after their first win in the Big East that getting another 9 wins would be a struggle. Maybe it is...maybe the young group hits the wall deep into a schedule in one of the best conferences in the country.

Then again, Cook once wrote that Dixon wasn't the man to replace Howland, so I this this Steeler-less winter may have something more to enjoy once again.
