POV’s Miami Game Day Thread

Here we go friends. The team is in Miami and ready to stop their QB, pound their defensive lineΒ  to bruised meat and bring an ACC win back to Pittsburgh. Our predictions have been cast in stone and what’s left to do is out of the fan’s hands.

But don’t let that stop you from willing them to play their very best through this game thread.

Have at it friends – this one will define this season I believe – win and we have a good shot at bettering last year’s record which is what we want to see from our coaching staff – progression.

HTP!!!

  1. Hey guys just checking in. I little girl has her birthday party today then we’re flying home to see my mom. The end is very near for her so please keep her in your prayers the last few weeks have sped up considerably and as many of you guys said it’s been real tough. I love my pit POV family and appreciate you guys. I like pit the win the game but I have a hard time thinking Miami’s gonna lose four street or five straight for that matter. This game will come down to coaching. I do think it’ll be lower scoring.

  63. For you, Reed:

    Nick, I’ve been having that same feeling….Pitt football is a perennial six win, seven, and on good years eight win program. Even when we could have had an 11 win season we blew it against Cincy. We have the program Pitt brass will tolerate and more importantly – pay for. Sure, there was big talk when Gallagher fired Steve Pederson…but guess what? Heinz Field is going to look a lot like it did that day back in 2014 against Duke – depressing, half empty – when Gallagher decided to do something. But something, so far, hasn’t been nearly enough. Using academics as an excuse for mediocre athletics is bullshit.

    This is why blaming fans at any given time is pointless.

    Imagine if Jock Sutherland hadn’t been told to demphasize and Pitt had been a Michigan (or Penn State-type) winner for decades. Pretty sure there would be no need to complain about fans or sell tickets.

    Pitt could have spent big bucks and gotten an experienced head coach. They are petrified to be top dollar (they being Pitt’s bots).

    In sports, as in most other things, money counts in results. Why is Chryst so successful at Wisconsin? In this case, it’s not so much about money as it is support. He’s got the whole university behind him.

    Pitt half-asses it regularly. I don’t mean the players, the student fans, the alums, or even the coaches. It’s the big bad Pitt brass who only expect mediocrity.

    Yes, next time they talk about winning championships, ask them to show you the money. It isn’t there.

  104. Uhhhhhh wow — Post-Game things went a little Too Far South yikes lol.

    Lol we gotta have a “Speaking For Myself Zone” with all the: “We just Suck” / “Pitt will never be good” etc. comments lol YOUR opinion NOT EVERYBODY’S too say the least.

    I’m just not sure what the H-E-Double-Hockey-Stick was going on with Pat Narduzzi today. Who kidnapped the Fiery, Don’t-Give-A-Sht FIREBRAND and put that impostor on the sideline today?*

    LOL I’ll say this for EVERYONE HOWEVER: #HailtoPITT πŸ™‚

  106. My FIRST Post on Reed’s Blog… Yes today is that Special.

    What would people have said if Chryst came in and the Offense performed similarly to the way the Defense has for Narduzzi?

    Just to put things into their PROPER Perspective.

  107. Well, things are looking el stinko in Pantherland, however, the “Freightened Irish” lost today to Navy and are now 3-6. NDU gets fantastic recruiting classes only to dump them into Kelly’s garbage disposal. 4*s are all over the place and somehow with all their talent and fanatic and frantic fans they come up short. Does misery love company?

  108. R.I.P. Pitt football for this year. 6-6 at best. Major step backward for Narduzzi. Going to the Clemson game and at least will not have high expectations. Jarrett loss major!

  109. Tough game. Man, I can’t believe you guys. Can’t coach, can’t recruit, can’t win,,,can’t, can’t, can’t. This is his second year. His dudes are redshirt freshman. Brightwell looks good. Moss looks good. Hamlin will improve. OL looks strong. This is a qb game. We are a solid qb playmaker away from big things. MacPitt coming into a grat situation. Wine reception each and every week here. Did anyone here play professional sports? How often do you see professionals whining? Not many, but when you do it makes big news. Why? Because whiners are nothing but troublemakers disguised as people that want to win real bad. The people that really want to win see the positive and build up versus rip down.

    Winners don’t whine. Whiners don’t win. Notre Dame is 3-6. You don’t hear them whining.

    We will win next week. DWatson is hurt but will come back in my opinion. He will be tentative.

    As much as I hope what you dream comes true, one problem: Pitt will never open up fat anything to PAY. Pitt is like the uncle who always goes to dinner when the check comes.

  111. Now I am having doubts about Narduzzi. His team quit today – which was a first – and that is a horrible precedent. Everyone in their right mind knew this year would be a major step back. Which is fine – as long as the team never quits. Anymore quitting this year… and he can look at being the Purdue LB coach.

  112. I gave up last Thursday night leaving Heinz and really Pitt Football will never amount to anything again.

  113. Just for the record, I have no expectations about Pitt sports anymore except that occasionally I’ll get sucked into the hype and then fall flat on my face. Enjoy the ride. At least we are in a Power 5 conference. Pitt goes Pitting. It’s now a fact of life.

    30,000 read fans and another 20,000 who will join the bandwagon when we win. That presents great potential if the university decided having a top notch football program was at least as important as slathering UMPC’s name on everything in sight. But it’s not. Pitt’s geriatric trustees just don’t get it.

    When Reed talks to Nordenburg once a year, I hope he doesn’t give approval to Nordenberg’s cheap cheap cheap approach to sports.
