It’s not a rivalry, but there have been enough open threads over the years for the need to differentiate in the permalink.

12:30 pm on various RSNs (whatever the hell they are calling the Pittsburgh sports channel these days, NESN, YES and others) and WatchESPN/ACC Digital Network Extra.

Hey, it’s homecoming for the Orange. Let’s spoil the bleep out of the day. I mean, it is what they really want so they have the excuse to focus on basketball and still bearing a grudge against Georgetown.

It’s all very weird. After solo dad duty, the kids are away for overnight things. The wife is still out of town.

I envisioned this day for so long. And now, faced with the bright reality. A cornucopia of  possibilities open before me.

The things I could do… Yeah. Sure. I just know I’m going to end up watching college football all day and drift off on the couch to Pac12AfterDark at some point. Middle-age dad life is such a downer.

Sure, it’s a rivalry.
Two lackluster programs, afterthoughts to the ACC agenda.
It ain’t pretty, but this is what we got.
At least we dont cheat in hoops.

Sounds like a heavenly Dad to me. Schools carnivals, kids soccer, yard work on the other hand. Haha. Pac12 is best at night.

There is still hope here at halftime.

Comment by Pitt Dreamer 10.07.17 @ 1:14 pm

Look at Syracuse second half stats pretty scary….we have little chance.

Comment by ROC2 10.07.17 @ 1:18 pm

Who’s Connie Hawkins?

Comment by ROC2 10.07.17 @ 1:19 pm

Watching on delay. What was the unsportsmanlike penalty on Pitt near the end of the half for?

Comment by Pitt Dad 10.07.17 @ 1:30 pm

Why don’t they target the tight ends

Comment by DocJlk 10.07.17 @ 1:32 pm

Momentum is on cuse now.

Ollison just got Browne murdered.

Comment by Tossing Thabeets 10.07.17 @ 1:54 pm

Rough other passer penalty killed us

Comment by DocJlk 10.07.17 @ 2:02 pm

Ishmael pushed off. How is that PI on Pitt?

Comment by Pitt Dad 10.07.17 @ 2:26 pm

SOP. Narduzzi isn’t qualified to coach JR. High.

Comment by Upittbaseball 10.07.17 @ 3:14 pm

Somebody buy DiNucci a chin strap.

Comment by 2$Chuck 10.07.17 @ 3:16 pm

Tossing… are you learning something?

Comment by PittofDreams 10.07.17 @ 3:24 pm

BIG question coming away from today’s Game…

Is Narduzzi the WORST Head Coach in NCAA Football?

Comment by PittofDreams 10.07.17 @ 3:26 pm

Meanwhile Pitt’s former Head Coach and his UNDEFEATED Badgers play tonight at 8:00 on ABC.

Don’t miss.

Comment by PittofDreams 10.07.17 @ 3:28 pm

By the way, Ollison made a GREAT run on the TD.

Moss would have been down at the Line of Scrimmage.

Time for Narduzzi to put away ALL the STUPID SILLINESS and try to WIN a Game!

Coach gives up red shirt for promising freshman quarter back for 12 seconds of play and one completion. A running back should have taken the snap and end the game.
Defensive guy makes most of the running yards.
A couple of key penalties, roughing the passer after he released the throw!!!
2nd down 8 yards to go, runs two bad running plays, punt. You would think it called for a pass?
2nd down and a couple of yards, runs two incomplete pass plays and had to punt. Play calling not as good as it should be this time of year.
DiNucci proves the point that in this league you need a quarterback who can run the ball when you have to. Especially when you do not have the pieces you need to run an effective offense. An athletic QB gives you options.
WE CAN ONLY HOPE FOR A BETTER FUTURE. lol.
Stick a fork in it, season over, hope there is not a complete collapse of the team.
There will be no coaching changes this year, administration will not want to deal with it. We will have to live another year of incompetent recruiting and coaching. I have a sick feeling we may be in the same situation next year.
2018 recruiting this year:
So far Miami has 14 4 star recruits
Florida State has 11 4 star guys
Penn State has 17 4 star guys
AND PITT HAS……….0 ZERO 4 STAR RECRUITS.

One ray of hope, at the DuZZi press conference he did state we will have a great team next year.
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ZANAX TO SPARE?

Take everyone and have a good week ahead.

I meant take care everyone.

Comment by Pitt Dreamer 10.07.17 @ 3:35 pm

At least Pitt finally has a great band…..I don’t think any “red shirts” were wasted by the band today.

Comment by Pitt Dreamer 10.07.17 @ 3:39 pm

OK…OK…OK…I may be wrong.

Comment by The Hagen 10.07.17 @ 4:53 pm

Which wrong are you talking about?

Comment by PittofDreams 10.07.17 @ 5:06 pm

All of them…..

Comment by The Hagen 10.07.17 @ 10:36 pm
