(First off here are the Pitt Media Dept.’s Pitt-NC Game Notes for reference.)
Pitt is sitting pretty at a 2-1 mark three games into the season. One of those wins was GGGGGreat! One was a good start to the year and the loss, last week to Oklahoma State in their hometown, raised a lot of questions. It wasn’t so much that we lost the game – it was how we lost the game. After all most Pitt fans figured we’d lose that away game to a good, strong offense
We fans have each season’s games ‘circled’ for various reasons be it for payback, rivalry or championship competition. Penn State was probably the most circled game by Pitt fans for obvious reasons. That was the GGGGGreat! win.
I wrote earlier during fall camp what I felt about the importance of that game and while it is fantastic we won I have had this upcoming North Carolina Tarheels game circled as I believe a win this Saturday will set the stage for a run to the ACC Coastal Division winner’s spot and then to a full ACC Championship.
