Pittsburgh is a team of thugs... seriously, why would Blair do that? I don't think Thabeet did anything wrong to him. They both went for the ball, and it was a 50/50 chance, and when Blair fell he just kicked at Thabeet's legs like a little child. Thabeet reacts to it and Blair says "nobody knocks me down" like some testosterone overdosed idiot. I hope UConn gets Pitt again in the Big East playoffs. I want to see Blair cry like the punk he is

Pitt is great during the regular season and in the Big East tournament but they always seem to underachieve during the NCAA tournament. The reason? I think their physical style of play which is tolerated in the Big East is not during the tournament.

I like Sam Young, he's the real deal but Blair is just a thug. Don't be surprised if he gets ejected for his dirty style of play in the tournament.

One man's dirt is another man's grit - Chevy Troutman, Aaron Gray, DuJuan Blair - do you get the Pitt picture? It's MENS basketball. In the BIG EAST.
And the reason Pitt has lost in the past is they have never had a 'go to' scorer like they do now in Sam Young. Step aside youngins - Pitt is taking the court!

PittPaul Arron Gray averaged over 20 points a game and he wasn't a go to scorer. Yes this might be Pitts best team ever. Oh and by the way the stats that really count. National Championships UConn-2 Pitt-0 and if we want to take this further total Big East Championships UConn-16 Pitt-6 and you guys haven't even made it to the elite 8 since 1974. You guys have gotten the best of us so far this year in head to heat matchups but don't go proclaim Pitt this superior program because that is the furthest thing from the truth.

The first step toward fixing your problems, is admitting you have one, no matter what the "voices" tell you. Now I know the Medication route doesn't seem to be working, doesn't anyone in your life care enough about you to possibly offer another solution; Exorcism ???? By the way, How's YOUR team doing this year Cybil???
