May 15, 2012

Does this actually surprise anyone?  Really?

ESPN has a short interview with Paul Chryst today where he states that Tino Sunseri will be the starting QB for the Panthers going into the 2012 season.

We here at the Blather have been trying to get you guys to prepare yourselves for this announcement for sometime.  It wasn’t a hard call for Chryst to make.

It also makes sense as much as we may not want it to. Here is a rather telling point and one that some fans just have refused to believe:

He clearly was the best this spring that we had. You’re aware of the history but it doesn’t really matter for us.

Then here is this zinger.

“He’s got room to grow. If he chooses to grow, and I know it’s easier for us to say last year or two years before that doesn’t matter. It matters in the sense that you should learn from all of it, positive or negative. But it doesn’t matter going forward. 

Look, let’s be brutally honest here and stop bullshitting around. It really doesn’t matter going forward because he is all Chryst has.  He has no choice but to play Sunseri because of incompetence after him. However that “If he chooses to grow” comment leaves one wondering.  What if he doesn’t choose to grow?  Riddle me that Batman.

We just have no decent QB on the roster but Tino Sunseri and he’s suspect as hell. If anyone harbors any hope for any of the other four QBs, lets add Gonzalez just for more psychic pain, just let go of it now while you still have some sanity left…

“Chryst said nobody grabbed the backup quarterback job. As for what he anticipates for Chad Voytik once the four-star prospect arrives this summer, Chryst said, “First he’s got to get here. Then we’ve got to see how he picks up things. I anticipate him getting work. Legitimately getting work and then we’ll see.”

Got that?  No – Body – Grabbed – the – Backup – Job.  Not third year QB Mark Myers, not Shorty Anderson and not Smoke Gonzales.  “It is a ship of fools we have here on the Southside docks, step right up and take the cruise.”

So what we have left is a long shot miracle that may or may not be happenning in training camp with Chad Voytik.  But here’s a bit of advice.  Don’t back the wrong horse…

Coming around the clubhouse turn!  It’s “Tino Time” with the big lead and… hold on!  Here comes the Tennessee stud closing fast!!!   It’s a horse race again folks, anything can happen….!”

… in our dreams.

Another aspect of this is that Chryst wants to get the offense personnel set as soon as possible and start instituting his playbook that first week of training camp.  He needs a starting QB to do that.  The fact that he said Voytik will get a legit look is nice but he’ll go into training camp with Sunseri and stick with him IMO.

But Chryst feels that he can coach Sunseri well enough to succeed in his offense and that may be the case.  We’ll see.  I tend to think Sunseri will not be the same QB we had last season and that he’ll be better due to his new comfort zone. I do not think we’ll look at Sunseri at any time this and think that he’s turned the corner or that his troubles are behind him though.

No, every snap will be an adventure again this season.  Perhaps that 70%/30%  run/pass split doesn’t sound to bad right about now, huh?





Can we run 95% of the time? Like Navy… they’ve had some success. We have three very good RB’s, just do the wildcat the whole game.

Comment by YV 05.15.12 @ 5:57 pm

Perhaps this will be Tino’s breakout year. With Christ’s new offense, Tino may be a much better QB. Let’s get behind Tino. He is a Pitt Panther and has the most experience at the QB.

Hail to Pitt!

Comment by MariettaMike 05.15.12 @ 6:32 pm

NOTICE TO ALL PITT OPPONENTS: No need to cover any receiver beyond 15 yards because we can’t throw that far!

Birmingham here we come!!!!!

Comment by Coach Ditka 05.15.12 @ 6:40 pm

But Ditka….with the other QB’s it would apparently be “dont bother covering ANYONE because we cant throw at all”!! Unfortunately Sunseri is the least of all evils at QB. Might as well get behind him or dont bother getting behind the team….

Comment by JCE 05.15.12 @ 6:49 pm

Okay coach, I’m willing to trust you… Good luck.

Comment by CJK 05.15.12 @ 7:09 pm

sanity? why start now? it’s why i read.

Comment by pittkeith 05.15.12 @ 7:22 pm

I really think the 70/30 scenario is the best chance for Pitt to win. The other scenario I believe will happen, Paul Chryst installing his system and being successful, whether it be recruiting or on field performance.

Comment by Bones 05.15.12 @ 8:14 pm

Look I would like to see anyone not named Sunseri at QB but the truth is he has the most experience at the position. I think the offense will be very good because we will run a ton with Graham, Bennett, and Shell with playaction to the TE’s.
I usualy expect the worst from Pitt but I’m going to say that they will finish in the top 2 in the Big Least.

Comment by Mike in Harmony 05.15.12 @ 8:28 pm

Chas, you’re gonna be in trouble!! Mentioning Tino and all.

Funny, as far as I could count without going into detail, looks like about, over 20 posts with nothing on Tino, or comments about him. (oh you may find one or two making a joke about it)

Haven’t seen these alcohol fueled posts either. Haven’t seen anything like that for the same amount of time at least.

Oh, maybe someone did mention having a beer at the hockey game or something, with their nachos.

You know what this blog is about, of course,

nothing but alcohol and Tino, 24/7.

***for those don’t get my sarcasm, once in awhile a couple people come on here and say thats all we talk about, Tino and getting drunk*** LOL

Comment by Dan 05.15.12 @ 8:35 pm

I mentioned last fall, at the end of the season, if they announce Tino as starter in the spring, *^$@%!, and all of that.

Being a rational person, and a big fan of Coach Chryst (don’t read into that, I was a fan of Fraud too), he really doesn’t have much to pick from.

If this guy from Wisconsin, with all of the offenses he has had, says it’s Tino, what the hell can we do.

Maybe if Voytik comes in, that’s a real long shot fellas, for a high school kid to come in and get the offense.

Maybe Voytik comes in, learns things, and if Tino looks the same, he gets a chance a couple games in???

To my original point, if Chryst says this is it, well, he knows better than any of us.

If the play is bad, hopefully Chryst will not be against at least trying someone else.

Maybe he’ll coach Tino up, and give him plays that he knows he can handle.

I can’t believe it’s the middle of may already!!

Comment by Dan 05.15.12 @ 8:41 pm

More time for tail gating. Get to the game late and leave early.

Comment by Joe 05.15.12 @ 8:53 pm

Any word on how the recruiting visits went this past weekend?

Comment by JAM 05 Pitt 05.15.12 @ 8:58 pm

Tino………………..OY VEY!!

Let’s hope that Chryst & Co. can recruit a talented prospect to add to Voytik and possibly Savage. Teeny weeny Anderson, Mystery Man Myers and Gonzo Gonzales will never be able to carry the load in the ACC. In fact, they probably can’t handle the BE.

QB recruiting is an absolute must for a strong future.

Comment by isnore 05.15.12 @ 9:13 pm

When Tino tried out for Wanny, Wanny asked, “Can you tackle?”
“Watch this” said Tino who proceeded to run smack into a telephone pole and knock it completely over.

“Wow,” said Wanny. “I’m impressed. Can you run?”
“Of course I can run,” said Tino. He was off like a shot and in just over 9 seconds ran a 100 yd dash.

“Great!” enthused Wanny. “But can you pass a football?”
“Well sir,” says Tino, “if I can swallow it I can probably pass it.”

Comment by steve1 05.15.12 @ 9:14 pm

Meh

Comment by Kenny Powers 05.15.12 @ 9:23 pm

all the head coachs thougt they could make tino play and they could not this one wont eather
tino time were is the booze EMel get the drinks going it will be the only way we get thru next season tino sucks we all know it but the coach.

Comment by Frankcan 05.15.12 @ 9:27 pm

Steve1 that was very funny i loved it.

Comment by Frankcan 05.15.12 @ 9:29 pm

If it’s tino, I aint watching. Watching him gives me a rash,and makes me throw things at my TV, yell at my kids, and ignore my wife. OK, so the last thing there is no big deal, but “COME ON MAN!”. Here’s to hoping that Chad V learns SUPER FAST!

Comment by dish 05.15.12 @ 9:49 pm

If ever there was a time to start a true freshman, this is the year. Why not let Voytik get experience before the ACC? We’re playing two 1-AA teams at home after all. We might as well make use of that.

Comment by Chuck Morris 05.15.12 @ 9:52 pm

why do this ,dan in central pa ,chryst said the same very emphatically, but look at the response,lets talk about the acc falling apart.

Comment by paul shannon 05.15.12 @ 10:09 pm

dish that was very good and true all most hit the tv last year
CHUCK MORRIS WHAT YOU SAY IS THE WAY TO GO BUT THEY WONT DO IT

Comment by Frankcan 05.15.12 @ 10:18 pm

Chryst is getting off on the wrong foot already ! He’ d better get a clue … Why waste a whole season in front of victory starved fans. On another note, Greg Popovitch hates Dejuan Blair… he is buried on the bench & when he does play he strictly sets picks @ the top of the key & NEVER gets the ball back in return on pick & roll plays !

Comment by ROCKY20 05.15.12 @ 10:28 pm

Rocky, check what Blair has been up to. He’s going to be getting an invite to the Team USA practice squad. Apparently he is doing enough things not on the stat sheet to get noticed and an invite. He plays the same position as Tim Duncan, do you really think he is better suited than Tim let alone his knees? Pops is trying to win a championship and prolong Blair’s career/paycheck.

Comment by tedsptman 05.15.12 @ 11:00 pm

Let’s face it, Voytik will get a legit look because we don’t have a legit backup QB, not because he has a shot at starting.

Comment by San Diego Panther 69 05.15.12 @ 11:00 pm

Savage?

Comment by Timmeh 05.15.12 @ 11:04 pm

This SUCKS! Now pass me the bourbon.

Comment by TX Panther 05.15.12 @ 11:11 pm

I have to admit, I expected a much more colorful string of comments after that post.

On the bright side, in approximately 220 days, Tino will have no eligibility left and will not be our starting QB.

Unless of course he gets hurt during fall camp and redshirts.

Comment by cnorwoodaz 05.15.12 @ 11:51 pm

Well let’s call it early say a 5-7 season…we are becoming the Pirates of NCAA football…I’m really hating Pitt football right about now!

Comment by Marco 05.16.12 @ 1:00 am

Who cares about this season just stay on the road recruiting the guys we need to win the next four years with. The cupboard was left bare. This season is a waste of time. Forget Penn State it’s about beating the ACC.

Comment by Tackle made by Hugh 05.16.12 @ 6:59 am

Pitt just released a statement: The Beef O’ Turd bowl has just invited Pitt to play in their January 7th Bowl game against the winner of the Mid American Horizon West Coast League. The fine people in Birmingham said in a statement that “rather than wasting the next 7 months figuring out which team to invite, We’ve settled on Pitt. With their 1-AA schedule we are confident that they can win 7 games this year lead by senior gunner Tino Sunseri. We know Tino has a bright future in the Arena Football League where the 20 yard pass is considered a bomb…We are truly excited to feature the once highly respected Pitt program”

Comment by Coach Ditka 05.16.12 @ 7:07 am

Frank – you said “tino sucks we all know it but the coach” but if you read that whole ESPN article you can see that Chryst actually does know he sucks and has to get better. That is the whole tone of his interview.

The heart of the matter is that Sunseri sucks less than Myers, Anderson and Gonzalez.

Sunseri has to calm down and progress. If he can do that and if this staff can develop gameplans that don’t misuse Sunseri then our QB can be effective this season.

Not Great, maybe not even that good but he needs to be consistent and effective. If he can do that we’ll win games.

Comment by Reed 05.16.12 @ 7:46 am

well at least most on this site will be looking to this season with more realistic expectations than the unrealistic ones they had entering the 2 prior seasons

Comment by wbb 05.16.12 @ 7:48 am

Reed well said. The thing that continues to wow me is how many people seem to know more than our Head Coach!!!!!

Comment by giveitarest 05.16.12 @ 7:57 am

I think we know our QB better than our new coach because we have seen Tino play first hand and not in practice. Our new coach is a batter judge of the existing QB’s in the stable. Tino still sucks and that will never change. But if he can limit the sacks, not make stupid mistakes, dink the ball and hand the ball off, we should win at least seven games.

Comment by TX Panther 05.16.12 @ 8:14 am

Let’s just run the wildcat all yaer long. ANother year of Tino Time will give me ulcers.

Comment by Pittastic 05.16.12 @ 8:25 am

Defense & a solid running game will keep the QB situation secondary. If so, Pitt has a chance to win. Every season is important to future recruiting. As a PITT MAN I support Tino 100%. Did you really think anyone else was going to start? Tino had no chance to succeed last year in that “backyard pick-up game offense. Why waste yout time w/negative vibes. If you are a true PITT fan or PITT Man then you want Tino to succeed! You need Tino to succeed! Hail To PITT

Comment by DC33 05.16.12 @ 8:46 am

Kuddos to Chryst for his honesty. All of his statements are brutally honest. You have to like that and respect it. The players also. The fact we have such a poor QB crew says volumes about past coaches. Pitt has not had a very good QB since maybe as far back as Van Pelt(?). Really when you think of it – they have all been serviceable and some GOOD QB’s, nothing terrific nor memorable. That ship needs to be turned around as well. As history would prescribe, Voytik has an uphill battle to live up to his hype and potential.

Comment by Pitt it IS 05.16.12 @ 8:55 am

The schedule is not too strong this year, correct? We look to have a strong ground game and an improving O-line (or is that being generous?) with a coach who apparently understands how to get the most out of his O-line and running game.

If Tino just can just improve a little – take one less sack, make 2 or 3 better passes, including a long ball here and there – and the receivers can live up to their end of the bargain, that should be enough to have a pretty decent season.

As much as I don’t relish seeing Tino under center ever again, at this point I’m willing to suspend the memories of Tino’s past performances and hope for the best.

On a side note, is there a thought to organizing a Pitt Blather collection for the Greentree league? I’d definitely be willing to contribute. Would love to see a little Pitt Blather banner hanging in the Greentree gym…

Comment by Carmen 05.16.12 @ 8:55 am

PITT it IS – you make a great point that we overlooked. Chryst has stuck to his promise not to sugarcoat things and to be forthright in his approach to PITT football.

That’s no trivial thing after the “Haywood/Graham Year Of Discontent”. Football aside, everyone probably knows I value character as much as winning in a college football head coach and that makes me feel pretty good, still, about our choice.

Damn your eyes! That would have been a good issue for me to have addressed in that article and I completely missed it. Oh well, there goes Chas’s shot at a Pulitzer, at least with my articles.

Which brings this to light – less distinction between Journalism and Blogs these days… Two ‘Blogs’ won Pulitzers this year.

Comment by Reed 05.16.12 @ 9:18 am

TINO TIME!!!

But seriously, as I’ve said before, with the coaching and the talented rbs, Pitt is going to have 10 wins and got to a BCS game this year regardless of who is starting at QB.

Comment by Wardapalooza 05.16.12 @ 9:30 am

Pitt’s offensive success this year is dependent on one thing and it is not Tino or the running backs.
It is the O line!

Comment by notrocketscience 05.16.12 @ 9:40 am

Has anyone ever witnessed a starting division 1 QB less capable of throwing a deep pass than Tiny? You let any defense key in on a 20 yard space and that will make things aweful tough. No coach that sees tiny on film will be able to miss the fact that he’s got no arm. The line will be stacked to stop the run and dare Tiny to beat them. Yikes!

Comment by Coach Ditka 05.16.12 @ 9:55 am

Haha. Ticket sales plummet.

Comment by TonyinHouston 05.16.12 @ 10:47 am

What can we as Pitt faithful in light of TS being the best option to start QB?

A) We can decide to look at the positive…Chryst knows what he is doing and is playing the cards he has to the best of his ability.

B) Whine, bitc*, moan, drink, partake of some herb, find new cure words to scream and saturate our flat screen TVs with spittle and pieces of perogies.

C)Give up and watch unemotionally.

D) Be like anonymous blog poster Joe D who is miserable constantly because he has so many 4 and 5 star recruits up his rectum he bleeds BS from his mouth.

Lets see….for me and my house the only logical, non-depressing choice we’ll be clinging too is Chryst and all of the other position players. I chose option A. I’m not going through another season of screaming at someone who is not very good. I choose peace of mind because there is light in PC’s vision.

Comment by Kenny 05.16.12 @ 10:50 am

I’ll chose option A) but I’ll soon revert to option B) after Tino takes a few stupid sacks and throws a few pick 6’s.

By game 6, I may have moved to option C). Hopefully, at that point Chad comes to the rescue and I’l back at option A) And have hope for the future.

Comment by TX Panther 05.16.12 @ 10:54 am

TX you are the man. I chose A for less stress but even then with TS playing will be drinking at least a 6 pack of New Belgium 1554 per game…

Comment by Kenny 05.16.12 @ 11:00 am

Ithink the hand dryers in the restrooms are not hot enough , they suck.

Comment by paul shannon 05.16.12 @ 11:06 am

I chose Option C 6 years ago.

Comment by Emel 05.16.12 @ 11:50 am

WTF. WTF does this do to the team, since they know Sir Tino is a product of legacy and can’t get it done. Oh yea he can roll up stats against the Youngstown States (well sometimes, see Maine) of the world and some god awful Bigeast defenses like Uconn, but they know in a pinch, when a play has to be made with PITT having a chance to win, he ain’t(emphasis) gonna get it done.

First time he screws up (about the 8 minute mark of the 1rst quarter of 1rst game), the team will say to itself. Same old Terrible Tino.

At the very least, let Voytik came in, keep the job open, and MAKE SIR TINO EARN IT. (yea right)

Comment by Emel 05.16.12 @ 12:05 pm

Comment by dish 05.15.12 @ 9:49 pm

Excellent points all dish. And ones PC needs to consider for the sanity of the alumni.
First time EVER last year, I skipped watching several PITT games that were televised down here and the FIRST TIME EVER THAT I DIDN’T WATCH PITT play in A BOWL GAME (granted it hardly qualified as a bowl game)

Sheesh I would even go to bars to watch PITT games in the Johnny Majors Two era(knowing they were terrible) and had to defend PITT to some Ohio State fucks when we were losing like 45-0 at halftime in 1996 and afterwards when the final was 76-0.

Granted they are’t as bad as those teams, however knowing how this has been contrived to let Sir Tino play, makes me get a severe rash as well.
Goes against what I believe in !

Now the next question is, would the Beef O’ Turd Bowl be considered an upgrade over the BBVA GPS Directional Compass Nobody Comes To Bowl ??

Comment by Emel 05.16.12 @ 12:33 pm

Terrible Tino went back to pass.
Terrible Tino got sacked on his ass.

Couldn’t make Tino a better quarterback in the end.

Comment by TX Panther 05.16.12 @ 12:35 pm

Tino the Terrible practiced real good
Chryst took note, and said
You’ll start in my hood
Tino exclaimed I’ll lead this Pitt herd
Unfortunately his first start
Still smelled like a fart
And looked like a turd

Comment by Dr. Tom 05.16.12 @ 12:49 pm

lol TX Panther

From a purely marketing aspect, this is just gonna be a disaster for season ticket sales. If PC would have been smart he would have waited to just before kickoff of 1rst game to announce the starting QB.

That way all ticket holders would be in their seats and season tickets would be non-refundable.

Just sayin.

Comment by Emel 05.16.12 @ 12:51 pm

Reed – thanks! Go ahead and run with it! Its all good stuff here.

I really view Tino as an “it is what it is” issue. He is who we have – I don’t like him, I don’t think he is any good, but he is what we have to play with. If Chryst follows through with his statements, he will play to the teams abilities and strengths. This means run over pass and pass to keep the D honest. In this, the TEAM and PLAYERS need to step up and display their strengths play after play. The O line needs to block and block well. Finish every play. The backs need to hit the holes fast and hard, shed the first tackler, etc. AND Tino MUST hit a deep route when asked to.

What I like that Chryst is doing is putting success back in the players hands. Practice and call plays that the players can execute. The rest is up to them. I also like him getting back to what works – mamouth sized blue collar linemen. That’s where it all starts and gives the O a chance to succeed on every play.

Comment by Pitt it IS 05.16.12 @ 12:55 pm

I don’t see the point of constantly piling on Tino in here. It is clear that nearly everyone doesn’t like him as a QB, as has been made by all the past posts on how he is terrible.

If you don’t by tickets because Tino was named starter, what kind of fan are you? I mean seriously new coach with better schemes for Tino to carry out and people are acting like the season is over.

Comment by Wardapalooza 05.16.12 @ 1:25 pm

Also, I would like all the Meyers supporters on here to admit how bad Meyers must be if he can’t even claim the back-up QB position on a team with no QBs.

Comment by Wardapalooza 05.16.12 @ 1:30 pm

Just havin some fun at Tino’s expense. Opposing defenses also like piling on Tino as well. But, to your point, true fans should show up win or lose and support the team. Don’t lose hope yet. Although I may get to option C) by game 6, I still think Pitt wins at least 7 games this year. I’ll be pulling for Tino. Maybe he pleasantly surprises us by only taking 30 sacks this year.

Comment by TX Panther 05.16.12 @ 1:31 pm

I believe Tino needs to take the George Costanaza approach to 2012: If every instinct you have is wrong then the opposite must be right.

has to be a better strategy than doing what comes natural, right?

Comment by Coach Ditka 05.16.12 @ 1:40 pm

Emel, if that’s true I think they’ll miss an exciting season.

Comment by Reed 05.16.12 @ 1:43 pm

Ward, Myers basically doesn’t give a s**t

Comment by steve1 05.16.12 @ 1:43 pm

Wardapalooza:

I have definitely been one of those “Give Meyers a shot” people…I’ve said before that I’d rather lose and find out that Meyers sucks in a game than lose with Tino because we already know he sucks in a game.

That being said, I’ll give the Coach the benefit of the doubt because he knows more than I do.

Comment by CJK 05.16.12 @ 1:44 pm

I like Tino as a person, I like Tino as a student, I like Tino as a team player, I just don’t like Tino as Pitt’s starting QB. If he is the best we got, then lets hope that Voytek is the next coming of JC because if that’s all we got, it is going to be a frustrating season.

I still bought my season tickets, I’ll still go to the games, I’ll still support the team, I’ll still hope the best for Sunseri and I’ll still be pissed off for subpar play from Tino.

Please prove me wrong on my last prediction Tino. Have a GREAT season and make me eat my words, I’d love that.

Comment by Dr. Tom 05.16.12 @ 2:24 pm

The schedule is setup for us to eat our words Dr Tom & everyone else who lives in reality.

I will be glad to eat crow for PiTT to win 9 or 10 games and go to a decent bowl. Problem is the BIgEast has only 1 decent bowl, the BCS Bowl. :-)

Comment by Emel 05.16.12 @ 8:08 pm

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Can somebody please shoot me now and put me out of my misery?

Comment by Imma Man! Im 40! 05.16.12 @ 9:25 pm

Chryst obviously wasn’t a student of history. I think Chryst is going with the low risk and low return approach that should generate at least 6 or 7 wins. ABT would be high risk but potential for a 9 win season or a 5. But I’m willing to take our chances particularly if it means a more successful year 1 in the ACC because the other quarterbacks got some game day experience. I’m sorry you Tino lovers out there. The man is a fraud as a quarterback. Mediocre at best. That gets you a crappy bowl in Bama each year. Let’s generate some excitement this year and start ABT. Let’s go through the highs and lows with someone else. PLEASE Chryst I beg you.

Pitt it IS Pistol Pete wasn’t a bad QB. I just hope Tino goes Bill Stall on us and ends up play good his last year. Stall was horrible his jr year and was above average his senior year. If that happens maybe we win more then we lose. I’m starting at C.. Moving to A. mid season if we get a good start and ending at B. When we are fourth in a four way tie for first.
