Pitt 2018

Season starts tonight.  They play 5 cupcakes to start the year, so will probably get off to a good start.  YSU first up this evening.

Hopefully, Pitt will like the taste of the cupcakes

Pitt up 32-12 on VMI. 

Again these are cupcake teams but Pitt lost some of these games last year and struggled in others.  Any win is a good thing for this program as they try to rebuild.

Pitt won 8 games at the front of the schedule against cupcakes last year, going into conference play around New Years.  My guess that number goes to at least 10 or 11 this year, as the schedule is easier this year leading up to ACC play.  And big the difference will be the wins that they will get in the ACC as compared to last year, resulting in a much better season. 

They'll have to work for wins in the ACC, for sure.  The conference collapsed around them in football this year, even at the top - but that won't happen at the top of the hoops conference.  The guard play alone will have them in almost every game this year.  They are still gonna miss the presence of a true big man against the better teams but the guards are fun to watch so far.

Yes! Definitely an encouraging sign. Although it would be nearly impossible for a power five hoops team to be worse than last season's Kevin Stallings lead team.

I agree. Very nice to see Pitt being able to put up a lot of points. Is this showing just how bad Stallings was at coaching this team last season? Or was there a lot of turnover on players from last season to this season?

Pitt beat Noth Alabama 71-66 yesterday

Nice to see them winning even if it is against sub par teams but Pitt wasnít anything to brag about last season either

Best win of the year for Pitt as they beat previous undefeated Saint Louis in a neutral floor game.  Pitt wins 75-73 to move to 6-0 on the year.

I actually saw St Louis live last year!  When they played against Duquesne down at the Palumbo.  Duquesne actually won, St Louis looked terrible.  They are surely improved. 

Between now and New Years, Pitt plays five more cupcakes.  Along with Iowa and WVU.  Hoping for at least 11 wins by New Years, and WVU is actually struggling a bit now.  So they might be ripe for the picking!!
