Re: Curious, anyone here follow NCAA hoops
The buzz is pretty muted up here. Sort of guarded optimism about the football team. People were pretty pissed with Kelly after the Navy and Tulsa losses and several big recruiting de-commitments, but it's amazing what a win over USC will do. Even a bad USC team. If he gets a win over Miami and a couple of the 5-star recruits they're still in on, I think the pressure will be lighter going into next year.
And I think Jamie Dixon is a fantastic coach. Pitt should be thankful that he's still there and not off to some higher profile job by now.
The Big East is going to be the usual hoops meat grinder this year. I'm really looking forward to it - I'll be doing some ND games for the AP in January, probably Marquette, St. John's and Cincinnati.
