You think you're a dedicated Pitt fan?

Some of these students have been waiting in line since yesterday morning. Waiting for the highly-anticipated matchup with Krzyzewski's Blue Devils, these animals of the Oakland Zoo show their dedication by toughing it through one of life's most frustrating struggles - lines.

A few even brought a couch into the Pete as the Panthers' student fan base plan to give Duke's Cameron Crazies a run for their money tonight at 7 p.m. EST on ESPN.

I walked over and talked to some of them about everything from score predictions, the meaning of this game for both Jamie Dixon's program and the Zoo, and why even they do this. In the words of Steve Martin, these are definitely some wild and crazy guys (and girls).
