It's tournament time so you know what that means! We re-post our obituary on Pitt from 2 years ago!!
You'll recall that the first 3 months of 2011 were some of the most tumultuous times in Pittsburgh sports in the past several decades -- the Steelers lost the Super Bowl, Crosby and Malkin were out for the season, Alex Kovalev came back weighing 320lbs, and #1 seeded Pitt lost in heartbreaking fashion to #8 seed Butler in the second round. Looking back on how that game unfolded, with missed free throws and then committing an offensive foul with under 2 seconds left on the missed free throw rebound to put Butler on the line in a tie game, the Pitt lost may have been the hardest of all to stomach.
You can read our not-uplifting recap here.
But this is a new year, so it's time to be optimistic again.
