Pitt very conveniently (or inconveniently, if you're someone like me trying to follow the Paul Chryst stuff) has a basketball game today against St. Bonaventure. I know, right - who even knew.
I'm not going to get too much in depth here. Pitt (as of Friday, anyway) is an 8-point favorite in the game and while it's one they should win, the Bonnies are no joke. St. Bonaventure hasn't beaten anyone of note yet, but they are winning their games fairly easily, averaging more than 10-point margins in their wins.
With exams this week, both teams have had long layoffs, so it'll be interesting to see how they respond. Pitt at least gets the benefit of having the game at home and in our pick of the week, all of our writers are taking the Panthers here.
Drop in during the game to comment live. I'm going to try to be around, but with Christmas shopping, dropping the dog off at a day care (don't ask), and trying to get the house in some kind of order for guests, well, you get the idea.
Gametime at 2:00 p.m. and, hey, it's on ESPNU, so no annoying hooking your laptop up to your TV or anything.
