12/26/2009 - Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt said the partying is over, and the 17th-ranked Panthers are mentally ready to take on North Carolina in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Saturday. "We'll get some rest and get our minds on the business at hand," he said Thursday. "Our guys are right where we need to be, and I think (Wednesday) was our best day of practice by far." Wannstedt said the Panthers are driven by the chance to win 10 games, a feat they have not accomplished since 1981. "If we win this game, we'll probably end up in the top 15 in the country," Wannstedt said. Wannstedt said NFL scouts will be watching defensive linemen Mick Williams and Gus Mustakas, guard John Malecki and tight end Nate Byham, all seniors. "Every scout and general manager will be sitting at home or lying on the couch watching this game the day after Christmas," Wannstedt said. "It's one more opportunity to reaffirm to the NFL they can play." It's also a chance for All-Big East cornerback Aaron Berry to impress pro scouts. "They have a couple big receivers, a couple athletic guys who really get after it, so it's going to be a big challenge for me,'' Berry said. "Since I missed a couple games, this should be good for me to get another game on tape." - Ralph N. Paulk, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
