    I'm behind on the polls so I'll make this quick. Look for the next few polls every two days. To paraphrase one of my favorite movie lines of all time: C'mon, it's Pittsburgh. We zip in, we win, we zip right out again. We're not going to Clemson. It's Pittsburgh. It's like we're going into Connecticut. First person to guess right may be eligible for special consideration in scoring.

    Tossup game, IMO. I will go with 0.6 because it is later in the season and we should know what we are doing offensively by then.

    It's in Atlanta. Pitt lost a dozen starters from the team that managed to win the games they needed to get to the ACCCG last season. They capitalized on a weak Coastal to win their first division championship. Only finished with a record of 7-7, and will probably not be as good this year.

    home game, Pitt is ööööt, we win. 0.8 rather than 0.9 only to account for possible injury-related crap to our team that late in the season.

    Pity date is 11-2, Miami was 10-19. Should be in good physical shape by the Pitt game.
