So What, It’s Still 3-1

Filed under: Football — Chas @ 12:42 pm

Being 3-1 is within the expected area before the season started. The over the moon optimist dreamed of 4-0. The complete pessimist said 1-3. There’s a lot of work needed with this team. Everyone knew that going into the season. There’s a lot that won’t get fixed this year, because of the players in place or the coaching. That’s reality.

What I find strange is complaining about being 3-1, because the last two wins highlighted many of the problems even as Pitt managed to win. Does Pitt “deserve” to be 3-1? Yes. Not because they are a Florida or Georgia-level 3-1 team. But because they were better than the three teams they beat.

If Virginia won yesterday, they would be a 3-1 team. If Pitt had lost to Duke last week, Duke would be a 4-1 team. Would they “deserve” that record?


My dog decided he wasn’t going to let me sleep in so I can post a few thoughts before I resume moving. As always, a win is a win is a win. I can’t emphasize this enough. This was Pitt’s first 3 game winning streak since 2010. If you told a Pitt fan that they’d start the season 3-1 and the loss was to FSU, I can’t imagine a fan who wouldn’t be happy. Have the past 2 wins been ugly? Absolutely. Last season, we lost pretty to Notre Dame. I’d prefer an ugly win. (more…)
