Updated the comparison between Pitt’s collapse and the one that drove Herb out of town.
From Jerry Palm on Pitt
We welcome Pittsburgh to the bottom of the bracket and to the bubble after another home loss to a non-contender. This time, it was North Carolina State taking down the Panthers. They have just one win over a likely tournament team (Stanford in New York). They also have a bad non-conference schedule. That’s not a great combination.
Here’s another nugget about UNC and the ACC in general:
North Carolina won its 12th straight conference game, but the most remarkable thing about that is they did so beating only one sure tournament team (Duke), and one bubble team (Pitt), both at home. It used to be you couldn’t go a week without playing a potential tournament team in the ACC.
