I’m not sure if Chas is able to post this so I figured I’d throw this up. Here’s my game preview. Unfortunately Adam Bisnowaty is out for the game, Dorian Johnson starts in his place.
In my opinion, special teams is about the “the things you can’t coach”. It’s all about having the guys with the “god given athleticism” and the “will/heart/desire”, or whatever you want to call it, make a play.
The only thing a “dedicated” coach would be good for is a punching bag for the fans when our players don’t make tackles.
But offense is going to be up and down, what is dumbfounding is the poor defensive showing in the first half. We had no answer for an average offense. We had no pass rush at all. The schemes were pathetic. It was like they knew what D was called and took advantage. Too many wide open receivers, their poor running attack had no problem finding the holes. No third down stops for us. Nobody making a play. The Coup de Grace, a puny return.
How many big plays have we given up on special teams? How many games has it cost us?
The lack of a pass rush must be fixed or we will get no better. We need better linebackers, or we will never stop the run. The lack of any pass rush made an average QB have a great first half.
Say what you will but this game was over at half time.
The only positive out of this game was that they did not quit.
Other than one game Bennett has been a disappointment. He had a hole yesterday that any of our three previous backs turn into thirty yards if not a touchdown. With him it was a 5 yard gain.
He did have a nice touchdown catch yesterday. He is good player just not a game changer. We need more of them on both sides of the ball. Particularly on Defense.
If you count his unrequited interception vs. GT Ray Vinopal has 5 turnovers in three games. He has become a game changer.
One last comment, Hendricks could not cover Ebron, by himself yesterday, where was his help?
No surprise he is winning. He took a perennial loser in Rice and turned them into a bowl team.
Wannstedt was a first time college head coach and it took him four seasons to win nine games.
If Graham were in year three at Pitt, he would be winning big here too.
You deal with the cards you are dealt.
sorry if you didn’t understand my last post. I’ll dumb it down for you next time. Thanks
So, as always…
Ok, got it.
Wow, did Pitt look fantastic yesterday!!! Can’t wait for the next two games, should be blowouts and on to a big bowl game to blow out an SEC or Big 12 team.
This team really excites me. The possibilities are endless.
Just an absolute pleasure to watch each and every Saturday.
Can’t wait till next year. With a new explosive quarterback, I’m thinking 10-2, 11-1.
We should be in competition for the Coastal division championship and a slot in the ACC Championship game against FSU or Clemson!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!
Year 4 and 5, we should then settle into a consistent top 20 team by that time, and have reasserted ourselves as a yearly top college football program!!!
woo hoo, H2P, who knew it could ever get this good again!!!!!!!!!
