After losing in fairly humbling fashion Saturday afternoon, Pitt fell five spots in the both major polls to eigth place. While being eighth should be - and is - a great thing, in the rough and tumble Big East, that's good for third place. UConn and Syracuse are ahead of the Panthers, while Villanova lurks close behind at 10th.
It's early, but it seems certain that the survivor winner of the conference should be awarded a top seed come March.
Tennessee is now ranked seventh.
It's a long season ahead.
