The Sporting News released their updated 2011 college football rankings of all 120 Division I-A teams. Pitt came in at 36th, good for
second third behind West Virginia and South Florida in the Big East - the Mountaineers were 22nd.
Jarred Holley wasn't all that concerned about it, though:
DB Jarred Holley: "I don’t really pay attention to that stuff. I mean, of course you take a peek at the magazines. But you can’t get caught up in the predictions. I just think we can accomplish all the goals we have for this season."
DL Julian Miller: "It’s almost like mixed feelings. It’s definitely an honor to be called the best team in the Big East. But we play a lot better when we’re in an underdog situation, when we’re not picked to do something."
