KEYS TO THE GAME

  • Try not to pull a Penn State. I know last Tuesday’s game against the Nittany Lions was a loss mainly all on umps, but Pitt can pull a good win every now and then. They beat #3 North Carolina a few weeks ago. Just avoid a let down.

HOW AFRAID SHOULD WE BE? (SCALE 1-10)

One. I’m as afraid of the Panthers as I am of cop procedural spoofs. Yes, I know that is a weak connection, but you try coming up with these things two or three times a week for nine months...

Also, you should check out Angie Tribeca. That show is so stupid it’s hilarious.

PREDICTION THAT WILL HOPEFULLY BE RIGHT

“Hands, touching hands...reaching out, touching me, touching you...SWEET CAROLINE...”
