Updated ESPN Bracketology Rankings? Why not.

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Granted, as we're about to head into June, the last thing on your mind is likely Bracketology. But ESPN guru Joe Lunardi released an updated version of his Bracketology rankings last week and Pitt is on the move.

The Panthers are now up to a No. 6 seed in his latest bracket. That's two seeds higher than they were last month when Lunardi seeded them at No. 8.

When it comes to Pitt making the NCAAs, it's something I'm still taking a wait and see approach on. The Panthers have some talent, but there are still too many unknowns at this point. We still have to not only see if they land any of the transfers they're pursuing and if any will get waivers to play immediately.

About the only thing we can say right now is that writing Jamie Dixon off would be foolish. He's done more with less plenty of times and there's no way that I'm declaring Pitt out of the tournament for next season.
