big ups to the panthers.
For the first time in school history, the Pittsburgh Panther men’s basketball team is ranked #1 in the country. As a Pittsburgh kid.. the son of two Pitt graduates and the brother of a future grad, I am obligated to jump on this wagon post-haste. The Panthers (14-0) earned their number one ranking in the ESPN/USA Today poll this week by pasting the Georgetown Hoyas on the road and receiving a little help from Boston College (in Chapel Hill no less). However you look at it…being undefeated into the second week of January is no joke…As Dickie V put it, “these Panthers are for real, baby”
