I learned very quickly to despise Pitt and Lville over the past 15 years. This was not a fun week.

Syracuse's neck collar just got a lot tighter. It's not an NCAA killer, but they have put more pressure on themselves down the stretch now.

Syracuse really must enjoy putting their questionable postseason fate in the hands of the NCAA Selection Committee.
