Pitt Basketball and how the ACC schedule will probably work.

Now this is coming as pure speculation and is based on article here. Personally, this is pure speculation on the article writer's part and is based on my opinion of the article. Nothing more. I personally don't know enough about basketball (the ins-and-outs of how the colleges make up their minds on things) though I do know enough, especially about the rules.

According to Mr. David Teel, this is how Basketball will work in the

What about regular-season basketball scheduling with 15 teams?

Swofford said teams most likely will play 18 conference games and have two partners they play twice every year. That means facing two other schools, on a rotation, twice, and 10 schools once – five home and five away.

Here are some possible partners, emphasis on possible. Many ways to approach this.

Boston College – Virginia Tech and Syracuse.

Clemson – Florida State and Georgia Tech.

Duke – North Carolina and Wake Forest.

Florida State – Clemson and Miami.

Georgia Tech: Clemson and Miami.

Maryland -- Pittsburgh and Virginia.

Miami – Florida State and Georgia Tech.

North Carolina – Duke and N.C. State.

N.C. State – North Carolina and Wake Forest.

Notre Dame: Pittsburgh and Syracuse.

Pittsburgh: Maryland and Notre Dame.

Syracuse: Notre Dame and Boston College.

Virginia: Virginia Tech and Maryland.

Virginia Tech: Boston College and Virginia.

Wake Forest: Duke and N.C. State.

Now part of me is thrilled. We get a naturally rivalry in ND, but Maryland? I get that the Tobacco Road schools would want to stick together..but maybe Pitt-Duke? Maybe Pitt-UNC? I mean throw us a bone. Let the rivalry be New vs Old not Old vs Old. Either way, IF this is how it works out then it looks like Pitt would play @Maryland and then at home, and @Notre Dame and then at home. That wouldn't be too bad for at least one of these games; the other one, I don't think fans know yet.

Which is why I said, make it Pitt-Duke. People know who Coach K and the Blue Devils are.

Either way, things are looking good for the Panthers.
