Levance Fields didn't help much

INDIANAPOLIS -- The return of Levance Fields to Pitt went about like the return of Tito Trinidad to Madison Square Garden.

Or the return of Britney Spears to the MTV Video Music Awards.

Or the return of ... ah, you get the point.

It didn't go well.

Not well at all.

And the byproduct was Friday night's 72-54 loss at Marquette that ruined Fields' first game back since breaking his foot in a Dec. 29 loss at Dayton. The junior point guard had missed 12 contests in between Dayton and Marquette. Pitt went 8-4 in that span, which was respectable if not impressive. But Fields clanked 6-of-7 shots in his return to finish with four points and as many turnovers as assists (two each) in 20 minutes.

Again, not well at all.

And things aren't getting any easier because Pitt's next game is at 20th-ranked Notre Dame on Thursday.

As for me, I'm in the Hoosier State -- a place where lying about phone calls will apparently cost you your job.

First it's Cleveland State at Butler on Saturday afternoon.

Then it's Michigan State at Indiana on Saturday night.

So in a matter of hours I'll see a Top 10 team (Butler) host a game in Hinkle Fieldhouse and a Top 10 program (Indiana) play a game for a coach who is on his way to forced unemployment. Crazy, huh? But either way, it should be a fun Saturday. And by fun, I mean strange.

Wow. I can't believe Levance didn't come back and walk on water or break bread for us.

You guys are pathetic.  Pitt never wins @ Marquette...with Fields, Jordan, or Jesus.

I haven't golfed since December 29th...so when I go out and don't live up to my 5.5 handicap....I should just quit?  Never get invited to play in another scramble again...just pack it in since I went 1-7 on birdie putts on the front nine.

Maybe you guys need to take a page out of the Oklahoma States football coaches book...

That's 1-of-7 Mr. Parrish.


He "clanked" (as in "missed") 6 of 7, meaning he made 1 of 7.

As far as Sampson goes, I'm still unclear about what is new that we didn't hear around last November.  We knew he broke rules by calling recruits more than a college girl drunk-dials everyone she knows.  Why did we go over 3 months until someone remembered that Sampson broke the rules and decided that he should probably be penalized for it?
