    ... So Pitt will play either Georgetown, Uconn, or DePaul at noon on Thursday... There will be no option for the classic matchup with Uconn in the Championship Game as several of the past tourneys have ended...

    I'll take any of those in the first round. Three teams they beat pretty soundly during the season. I want to see Pitt do well in this tourney, so they can go to the big tourney on an up note. Plus, why give the selection committee any reason to not make Pitt a 1 seed. They should still be a 1 seed anyway, but you never know.

    Well, I'd like to see them as a #1 also, but they really are the red-headded bastard stepchildren when it comes to "Big Dance" time... The Buffalo Bills of college basketball...

    ... They always fall short... Yea, they were one layup away from making it to the Final Four a while back, but they notoriously and repeatedly fall-short in the Tourney IMO... Sure, it's hard as hell to win the **** thing, but it's just so aggravating to see Dixon take his teams through the rigors of the conference schedule only to fall short.

    For me, the losses to St Johns and Louisville (yea, even though a total of 4 points) might and possibly should disqualify them as a #1 seed... Actually, it all depends what other teems are seeded within the same bracket... With that in mind, I wouldn't be too terribly disappointed with a #2 seeding.... I dunno...

    I say Pitt gets UConn and wins by 8 and then beats Louisville by 10 for the title.

    Agreed... But Villanova losing last night has to be the suprise so far. And even though they've lost 10 of their last 15 games, they're still in the running for a seed in the Big Dance.

    With the expanded tourney and the weakness of bubble teams Nova gets in easy.

    Sad as they are.

    Tougher path?

    I've joked in the past that it might be tougher to win the Big East tournament than win the NCAA tournament... Compare the potential paths in the two tourneys as a golden example... The Big East is just "brutal"...

    Potential path for UConn this year:
    Game 1: DePaul (RPI 231)
    Game 2: Georgetown (RPI 11, projected NCAA 6 seed)
    Game 3: Pittsburgh (RPI 7, projected NCAA 1 seed)
    Game 4: Syracuse (RPI 18, projected NCAA 2 seed)
    Game 5: Notre Dame (RPI 1, projected NCAA 1 seed)

    NCAA tournament path of last year's National Champion Duke:
    Game 1: Arkansas Pine Bluff (play-in winner)
    Game 2: Cal (8-seed)
    Game 3: Purdue (4-seed)
    Game 4: Baylor (3-seed)
    Game 5: West Virginia (2-seed)
    Game 6: Butler (5-seed)

    UConn gets to play in one location, without traveling, but would have to play five consecutive days....

    Duke's six games were spread out over three weeks at three different sites....

    Big East might get 11 with Marquette's win.
