Pitt Is It!

The Pitt Panthers basketball team is ranked No. 1 in the new AP Poll. Number One! Somewhere Charles Smith and Jerome Lane must be smiling -- they reached number two in 1988. Sam Clancy and the Eastern Eight Pitt teams never made number one. I stormed the Fieldhouse's floor once, but that was back when Clyde "the Glide" Vaughan helped knock off Patrick Ewing when Georgetown really was all that and a bag of reduced-salt chips. Oh this is a great day. Congrats Jamie Dixon, Buzz Ridl is smiling down upon you, I'm sure.

Don't count on staying there all year, the Powder Blue and White will be back in their rightful spot before too long.

Hey Jan, after 101 years I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts, whether it's a week or a year. Now if Pitt football could score at least one point in bowl game, that would be something. How do you lose 3-0 to an Oregon team that gave up 60-some points just several weeks before? OK, I actually know the answer to that question and his name is Dave Wannstedt.

Maggie is probably smiling, too, and thinking about what defenses she'd be calling.
