Michael Young. – MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

The University of Pittsburgh's not-so-long-ago proud basketball program is about to plunge off Cardiac Hill and into the ACC's abyss if something isn't done soon.

Not by the athletic director, of course.

The man who presided over Jamie Dixon's departure for his alma mater, TCU, also was the same man who lazily dialed up a national search firm to turn up Kevin Stallings on the Retread Rolodex, and also was the same man who bolted last month for the same job at Oregon State.

Yeah, thanks for this, Scott Barnes:

Thanks for the greatest "embarrassment" — Stallings' own term Tuesday night — in the history of the program, 106-51, to No. 14 Louisville at the Petersen Events Center. The worst loss since one to Westminster way back in 1906. The worst loss ever in conference play. And the worst loss in the Pete's history that, to fully appreciate the 55-point margin of defeat, one would need to add the margin of every single one of Pitt's home losses from 2002, when the building opened, to 2008 to reach a total of 55.

Wow.
