Pitt is still finding it hard to even crack the 'Others Receiving Votes' categories in either of the polls. The team lost its lone vote in the AP poll and this week received zero votes in either poll. The polls are always somewhat of an anomaly, but really, Butler at 8-4 ranked 23rd? Does anyone even pay attention when filling one of those ballots out?
Looking ahead, Pitt will have a hard time breaking into the top 25 this year. After tonight's game vs. DePaul, they've got three tough road games and they could have trouble stringing together enough wins in a row. They'll likely need a win over a big opponent, like, say, at Syracuse on Saturday.
