We need our shot-botherers in full effect today. Let’s start this one off on the right foot, Pitt media seems fairly confident from what I’ve read.01/04/2014 at 9:20 AM #35212AdventurooParticipant
One of the Vegas lines (which tracks three sources) has us at a 3 – 3.5 underdog. Thought it would have been more.
Guess the keys to the game are don’t jump out to a humongous lead. Don’t get buried so bad we can’t recover. Fight all the way to the end and be in JV’s PTW (Position To Win).
Hopefully all the Christmas cheer and New Years debauchery will have cycled through.
Off to the PNC….GO PACK.01/04/2014 at 10:04 AM #35213vtpackfanParticipant
I could see us winning this game if Lennard goes on a window washing spree and JV protects the rim.
When TJ is our best rebounder and our big men are tallying more personals than blocks it’s just a miracle to be in the game.01/04/2014 at 10:28 AM #35215BJD95Keymaster
I think we will win, maybe even going away. Pitt, as usual, is completely untested.01/04/2014 at 10:44 AM #35216TheCOWDOGModerator
More telling, perhaps, than the final 3.5 spread,, is that State opened as a 2.5 dog.
It will. be physical.01/04/2014 at 10:49 AM #35217TexpackParticipant

“More telling, perhaps, than the final 3.5 spread,, is that State opened as a 2.5 dog.”
I was under the impression that the ‘smart money’ is always on the home underdog. Not in this case?01/04/2014 at 11:33 AM #35449ILPackfanParticipant
I’m looking at this as a good early test.
The Pack has established that it prefers an open game with plenty of transition scoring. That ain’t going to happen against Pitt. So with this game and the Wahoos coming to town next Saturday, this team is going to have to adjust to a low-paced halfcourt game pretty quickly.
If they can do that, I’ve got a slightly better feeling about this team’s near-term prospects (being patient, making adjustments, etc.).01/04/2014 at 11:38 AM #35450
I’m in a bad mood already, so we better friggin’ win.01/04/2014 at 12:03 PM #35452AdventurooParticipant
Will someone pls post refs names. No sheets in PNC today. Thks01/04/2014 at 12:04 PM #35453
I am excited about this game. Hopefully Vandy shows up. He can be a game changer but has been lost the past two games.01/04/2014 at 12:07 PM #35454

Frenchie…LMAO.01/04/2014 at 12:09 PM #35458
Cat puts a lot of pressure on a defense. You have to be paying attention.
Where is the “get a foul when you drive” all for Lee?01/04/2014 at 12:10 PM #35459
Vendeblock and Cat pushes it. Good start01/04/2014 at 12:10 PM #35460
OK, my mood is brightening…a little.
Very nice start.01/04/2014 at 12:11 PM #35461BJD95Keymaster
It’s like Pitt hasn’t played a quick team all year. Did someone foreshadow that? 😀01/04/2014 at 12:11 PM #35462
Great d by Vandy. He played the pcik and roll great01/04/2014 at 12:12 PM #35463
The fans need a cheer after a Vandeblock they yell “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, No, No, No”01/04/2014 at 12:13 PM #35464redcanineParticipant
Great D!01/04/2014 at 12:14 PM #35465
