Pittsburgh is ranked No. 1 in the country, and some might say rightfully so, but I am not one of those who falls lockstep in line.

Pitt fans may think I don't like them, but that's ridiculous. The current rankings are bogus for one simple reason: Everyone I know and everyone you know thinks North Carolina is the best team in the country and simply had a bad night. Where in the world did we come up with the philosophy that we must put a team that is undefeated ahead of a one-loss team? Frankly, that is a bit hypocritical.
