Hello, all. Sorry. I have been exceptionally tied-up in the offline world for the last few days. I’m even late to get this out there.

Lots of concerns. Lots of issues. And Pitt starts the Big East play on the road against a team that has seemingly had their number the last few years. Happy fun time.

The liveblog will start at 7 pm. The game is on ESPN2. There is no bowl in front of it to preempt it, so we have that going for us.

Moderated chat. Hopefully everyone knows how this works by now. Since this is short notice I’m skipping the usual preamble of warnings.

I just had a chuckle imagining Dante Taylor playing the 4. Doesn’t that position require at least a small amount of ball-handling skill?

I have a suspicion about Kem…why he would not socialize with other players…why he did not fit in. He might have a hard time fitting into the college/semi-professional, professional sports team scene and it has nothing to do with PT.
I suspect he is trying to discover the person inside his body.
Wish him well. Some people are given gifts they are not emotionally equipped to use.

It’s not the end of the world for Pitt basketball. The PG makes Dixon’s teams go and Pitt hasn’t had one since Fields. Woodall hasn’t panned out like Dixon would have hoped. Next year, we have the old school PG that Dixon likes coming in. This team has as much talent as most of Dixon’s other teams, minus the Blair-Young-Fields combo. They just don’t have that true general on the court. I like Gibbs, but I think the team will be better off when he leaves the program. I hate saying that but what has made Pitt so good in the past is not one person has to carry the load. Even Blair and Young had each other to take away some the pressure. Gibbs thinks he has to do it all and it is holding the other players back.

Tossing Thabeet–You are correct that PG is an important problem but it is only the second biggest problem. We are like a doughnut. There is a big hole in the middle.

Neither Taylor nor Zanna are physical post players and will not get it done no matter who is the point guard. A big-strong center (or other muscular inside player) is by far this team’s biggest liability.

Gilbert is the only player on the squad with the physical potential to fill the muscle void in the post. Unless he is injured, he needs to play and learn on the job. If that can’t happen, or Gilbert isn’t up to it, this season will be an NIT year.

An attention-grabbing dialogue is price comment. I believe that it’s best to write more on this subject, it won’t be a taboo topic however usually persons are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

One thing is always that one of the most prevalent incentives for making use of your cards is a cash-back or even rebate present. Generally, you’re going to get 1-5% back upon various expenses. Depending on the cards, you may get 1% back on most expenditures, and 5% in return on acquisitions made going to convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores and also ‘member merchants’.
