Is Pitt headed for another down year this year or are they in for a nice turnaround season?!  I can see Michigan taking them back behind the shed tonight, regardless; they were baaad last year. (Side notes: I was glad to see Butler take down UNC last night and Indiana looked tough against a pretty good Georgetown team.)

six, coors light cans.  Yes, yes I know, Coors light is gross, and it is,  but it is home to me, so I am rolling with it. 

Just saw some hightlights of Pitt.  They look like a team that can give us some trouble.  They looks to have gaurds with size that can score the ball.  Granted I have not watched them play a game but just based on what looks to be their style of play I think we better be ready to be physical tonight.

Coors light isn't gross; it's just cheap.  The new 16oz bottle/cans are SO easy to drink...  I love good beer as much as the next guys; but when I get off the river on a hot day (I'm a fly fishing guide), an ice-cold CL Smooth is my go-to.

"Video quality can fluctuate based on available bandwidth and computer resources" (as this site always warns).  Since the first game isn't blacked out here in NYC, I suppose you should get the M game.  Kansas State over Delaware  25-23 a few minutes ago.   

On my way out the door to watch the other game live.  And maybe catch the end of this one.  Too late to ask for rooting suggestions.

Pumped for this game!  Curious to see how the freshman handle the BIG stage of MSG.  

Drinking slightly sandy cans of Natty Light......  I know, I know...  but it came with me in the cooler for 17 days on a raft trip down the Grand Canyon.  Only 3 left of over a thousand beers we brought!

Also puffing on the finest natural medicines from NorCal...

Still have to get the kiddo's to bed, and just gave them the 10min warning.  I'm looking forward to seeing how the team handles moments of adversity or droubts, against a decent team.  Obviously I would like a run away, but it would be good to get some good competition, during some of these early games.

I'm between a few Fat Tire's or a couple Founder's Scotch Ale's........

Just finished a Bells Two Hearted with the wife in a hot tub.  Now I need to help her get stuff ready for tomorrow while I watch the game.

And yes....probably with a glass of wine tonight.  Or two.  Or three.  Then it's Mimosa's tomorrow for breakfast!

Just had a SN celebration on the train from Chicago back to kZoo, then straight off the train to Bell's. Location, location, location. Go Blue!

Interesting question: How much of a hit to our RPI would it be to play Delaware instead of K-State?

Delaware still has a good chance here, down 2 with 26 seconds to go.
