At the beginning of the football season, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit raised some eyebrows when he picked Pitt to win the Big East. Two games into the year, that's already looking like a bad pick. So it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Herbstreit wants a do-over.â†µ
Herbie took to Twitter and offered this up:
I told ya Pitt was the team to beat in the Big East!.Mercy..I'm all over that one..haha.1st mulligan of the yr..T. Bridgewater and the Cardsâ†µ
It's hard to be too rough on Herbstreit, though. He went out on a limb and picked what many thought could be a darkhorse to win the conference. I don't remember seeing Pitt picked anywhere near the bottom in preseason predictions as well, so the fact that they haven't really even looked competitive is a bit of a surprise.â†µ
