Re: Pitt & Syracuse Apply for the ACC

That would be one heck of a basketball conference.

Where have you been?

Re: Pitt & Syracuse Apply for the ACC

And Pitt now admist that basketball is the number one sport at the school.




Not that there's anything wrong with that.

It will definitely be interesting to see how Jaimie Dixon performs vs the likes of Coach K and Roy Wiliams every year.....

Re: Pitt & Syracuse Apply for the ACC

I might be in the minority, but I hate to see Pitt leave the Big East, at least for their basketball program. I think it's a great basketball conference. Of course the ACC is as well. Football, the Big East is more like the Big Least.

Re: Pitt & Syracuse Apply for the ACC

With Pitt and Syracuse leaving the Big East, It's basketball takes a huge hit. Joining Pitt and Syracuse with Duke and N.Carolina makes that conference probably the toughest in the league. Sure the Big East will still have Uconn,Georgetown and Villanova, the rest of the league is average at best. Plus I've heard on ESPN that the ACC is looking at Uconn and Rutgers as well.

Uconn and Rutgers

Maybe March Madness should just be upper half of ACC + a few teams

Re: Pitt & Syracuse Apply for the ACC

Pitt/UNC or Pitt/Duke will be great games, and I think it will help Pitt in the tournament if they have to hit free throws to win regular season games. I am simply befuddled by the abject failure of Pitt to address that area of their game, as it has been a problem for about a decade or so. Since the first time the players stepped onto a court, the free throw line has been in the same place, yet some can't even manage to be 50% from the line.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

To be fair, that is the only stat in basketball that has not changed dramatically in the history of the sport, but, I also think F/T are one the most important parts of the game.
