    Pitt men's basketball coach Jamie Dixon drove by an overturned car with passengers stuck inside and stopped to help, suffering minor injuries in the process Saturday night.

    He doesn't always strike me as the most personable guy, but the guy is an impressive coach and apparently an impressive person as well.

    He was likely just doing what he figured everyone else would do in the same situation.

    If I see and overturned car and there aren't already other people or emergency people there, I'm stopping and diving in.

    Good move by Coach Dixon.

    Still doesn't top Joe Girardi who after winning World Series pulled a lady out of a burning wreck, Put out the fire and fixed the car so the lady could drive it home.

    I don't know about the hero stuff but I'll say this - Jamie Dixon is one of the best coaches in any sport in America.

    His teams never get outplayed. He makes great adjustments. His teams always overachieve and they rarely get upset. When they lose it is because they just don't have good enough players.

    What he did last year with that collection of misfits was nothing short of a miracle.

    You see, OOP, there is one team/coach/player in Pittsburgh I can say nice things about.... ;D

    What they dont tell you is the person he saved was Bob Huggins, who thanked him by puking on his shoes and saying, "Do you know who I am"
