On an unrelated note the NCAA Tournament will return to Pittsburgh in 2015 as Duquesne and Consol Energy Center will host 2nd/3rd round games. I haven't seen that mentioned here yet and I loathe basketball, but that's still good for the city. It's been more than a decade since the last tournament game played in Pittsburgh.
It just makes me laugh that it's always Duquesne 'hosting' when Pittsburgh gets the tournament games. I want to say that Pittsburgh is the only Pittsburgh D1 school to never host an NCAA Tournament event...Duquesne hosted two of these at Mellon Arena and Robert Morris has hosted a FCS football playoff game recently (and will host the Frozen Four this season)...which seems a bit absurd to me.
But then again Alabama-Huntsville hosted a Frozen Four in ****ing Tampa, so all bets are off.
Actually Duquesne hosted 2nd/3rd rounds last year at Consol. It also makes more sense for Pitt to not host and have Duquesnse; therefore they can play in Pittsburgh if they're a high seed-and have before. if they hosted, they couldn't play here because a team can't play in their host arena.
