I hate Marquette so much. Not really, because they are well coached and a great program etc. etc. Nothing seems to make us capable of beating them, though, no matter the circumstances. I am so TIRED of losing to this team. Ever since that sweet 16 with Dwayne Wade (such an impressive athlete and classy guy, but boy do I wish he'd played his college ball elsewhere). In fact, Pitt hasn't won at Marquette since 1930. Say what again?
OK, so everyone is panning Fields because he had a bad first game back. Guess what, he JUST HAD A BROKEN FOOT. He looked like he was fine in terms of health and shape, but he couldn't hold onto the ball or find his shot. That will change. Wouldn't anyone be rusty after a 12-game absence from the lineup?
Man does Pitt need to win. The next to are @ ND and home vs. Louisville. If they don't at least split they could be in serious trouble. After that they have two tough road games at WVU and Syracuse, though there's a home contest with cincinnati first. They close the regular season at home vs. DePaul. I will be satisfied with 3 wins out of that slate, because it's so tough. That would be a little disappointing, though, after we showed how good we can be in our first 11 games.
