Pitt hosts Duke on Tuesday. But first Jeff Capel's crew visits Syracuse on Saturday. Tribune-Review Pitt beat writer Jerry DiPaola and I discuss the prospects of the Panthers pulling off another upset, attacking the Orange 2-3 zone, slowing 'Cuse's fast break, and Dome Dogs. We also bring up Pitt football and the Panthers' new offensive coordinator, former Steelers quarterback coach Mark Whipple.

I was 3-for-4 on picks in Week 1 of the NFL playoffs. I said that you should take all the home teams last week, the under in the Colts/KC game, and give the points in the Rams win. I'm hot right now. Aside from the other predictions I'm not referencing right now. Get my picks for Sunday. Make money.
