Open Thread: Pitt-Buffalo

Filed under: Football,Open Thread — Chas @ 12:16 pm

Hey, a 3:30 start! That’s different. Oh, wait it’s on the road. At… Buffalo. The things you have to do in scheduling. It was a 2-for-1 deal that meant Pitt didn’t have to buy the Buffalo appearances. Considering they got $1,000,000 from Georgia it makes some sense. It also tell tells you the going rate these days to get a 1-A non-BCS program to do a one-offer — and why everyone is using 1-AA schools now.

Not even sure I’ll be able to see the game. We are visiting some of my family this weekend, so I’m not even sure if the game will be shown where we are.





@ Dr. Tom
I give out praise when & where it is warranted.
If you scroll up, you’ll see I praised PITT’s defense for bending, but not breaking in the W on Saturday. In which I also specifically mentioned the play of Dan Mason & Jason Hendricks.

What I attempt to do sometimes on the other hand is disspell some of these notions that there is no talent on this team and that this program was in some sort of doormat total rebuilding stage.

Just a few short years ago we had our best 3 year run in 30 years and finished 2009 ranked #15.
We have been to 4 straight bowl games. There is plenty of talent on this team to be 5-2. No way we should have lost to Youngstown State or Syracuse. Now if that is griping or pissing some ppl off. Too bad !

Whoa, easy there EMEL. That’s a little too close to saying Wanny did a good job. Are you trying to get the haters all stirred up?

lol marcus, God forbid !

*sends marcus a private email suggesting that Wanny did do a good job. Facts are facts. Wins are wins and final poll rankings as in #15 in 2009 are rankings. And that team was two points and one Janocko from being Top 10 and Sugar Bowl bound.
My only beef with Wanny was installing Sir Tino as QB based on nepotism, legacy and all that garbage.
