POV Podcast: Ode to Joy

Don’t lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations.

(Ralph Marston)

Especially when you are facing having to stop a great 9-0 conference opponent on a 4th and 1 play with 58s left in the game. 

The game we won, and that Pat Narduzzi coached, against a powerhouse of a team in #2 ranked Clemson last evening is one that will be felt nationally in the ripple effects that a Top 10 loss brings… and will be felt even more locally as it dispelled doubts that our head coach, Pat Narduzzi, could bring home a win from a large underdog status.

And how sweet was the way he – and his staff and players – did it? With cool determination from the HC to some wonderful playcalling by the OC Matt Canada we overcame issues on the field that would have sent other teams to the watery depths.

 For that we can thank SR Nate Peterman and rsJR James Conner for their grace under pressure.  Peterman had a career day with 20 of 37 for 308 yards and 5 TDs with no INTs. That my friends is a 167.6 QB rating for the game.  Yes his passes weren’t long bullets but he was effective as hell. 

 So was his backfield mate Conner with 132 yards at a 6.6 ypc clip.  Thank you to both of them!

 BTW – Peterman is now #16 in the NCAA in Passing Efficiency with 152.5… last year he was 44th with 138.6.

Here are some stats more to enjoy…

From the POV Prediction Article:

 “As I wrote earlier the only silver lining I see with the passing situation tomorrow is Watson’s 10 INTs to date.  If we can get two or three INTs and/or fumbles and maybe a Pick-6 out of him then we may have a fighting chance to keep the game closer than Clemson would like going into the 4th quarter.”

 Onto the next two games at home – we can beat both Duke and Syracuse regardless of how many yards they pass for… after all we just won a game where we gave up 580 in the air. 🙂

  3. Great to see the great mood you’re in this morning Reed. A win changes one’s perspective for sure and hearing your story talking to Kevin about dealing with the porous PITT passing defense was very telling. It is what it is. Nice job”’

    Reflections and random thoughts:

    Whiteheads broken arm is a bummer, hopes he bounces back and heals up completely. Speaking of Jordon, Even though we all know it, the play (fumble) should not have been reversed by the letter of the rule. It should have been called a TD from the beginning but I don’t buy the argument that it was the right thing to do. Doing that ruins the spirit of the rule believe it or not.

    Never in my life have a listened to a broadcast that was negative of a coach like I listened to yesterday. Griese and rightfully so constantly told us how Narduzzi was a great defensive mind and all but then, said he’s never saw such stubbornness and poor technique. This spilled over to clock management and they continued to ridicule Narduzzi.

    Yes, I couldn’t help but think when the 48 yard field goal from Blewitt was good, they both had to feel at least a little stupid. Narduzzi had roped more then one dope! and didn’t he say that PITT’s defense sickened him?

    Jarrett’s injury just may have been a blessing in disguise? Well many thought that Taleni may have been looking to leave, maybe the playing time for both parties will convince him to stick around? Su hope so.

    Aaron Matthews impressed me yesterday and he doesn’t look as skinny as I first thought. He is going to be a big player for PITT, watch out for him.

    Quadree Henderson not returning kick-offs only one or two yards deep? This could be a good thing and he may be just doing what the coaches want or is he worried about fumbling?

    Again, the offense, not the defense cost PITT the OSU, UNC and VT games. Oh what a couple first downs would have done for this great season?……. imo!………………..ike

    Again the offense wins another for them, I disagree Ike the offense has kept them afloat all season, we scored a lot of points against UNC, VT and OSU the defense made some plays but they still are way too inconsistent and another record setting passing day for the opposition.

    A great win for the Panthers and a signature win hopefully it picks up enthusiasm for the next two home games and recruiting.

  5. My one-singular issue with the “Outside Factors” last night was solely that that Shawn Levy (doing the play-by-play) would not say ‘PITT’ and said “Pittsburgh” all game. Brian Greise (color-guy) at least clearly had the respect+understanding to say “Pitt” lol.

    I love how hype this has made so many posters and @Reed!! — ENERGIZED You guys! — But this game is like the US Hockey Team (also severly undermanned back in those days) beating the Russians in 1980 – that Famous Moment was not actually even a Medal-Game and there was a lot of Hockey still to play against good teams to get the Gold — Pitt Football, Pat Narduzzi & co., and these Seniors gotta Finish The Mission and win-out the next games strong!

  6. ^^^ @Reed What Brain Griese was trying to say very clearly was that THE D-BACKS ARE BEING COACHED TO TURN AROUND when they are in position and **He didn’t comprehend why they weren’t turning around when they were “In-Phase” (his words for ‘stride-for-stride’) because that is what he knows Pat Narduzzi coaches.

    Again Brian Griese (won a National Title at QB at Michigan and played 11 seasons in the NFL) was also bashing the d-backs for lack of talent and execution and he even conceded that he doesn’t know what Pat Narduzzi could do besides Replace Them.

  7. Listen to the podcast again. Reed explains the DB’s are Not to turn around unless they are pretty much right body to body with the WR. I think they are doing what they are coached and I see DB’s becoming better coverage corners as the year goes on. It is frustrating to see the underneath so wide open though….but boy oh boy I’ve seen a lot of great throws and catches this year by the opposition.

  10. Great win! Just read the article, will listen to the Podcast later. Too many things to do today!

    Was at the game in the upper deck and was great to hear the Pitt fans cheering. Pitt fans could learn a lot from the way Clemson fans treated us after their loss. Gracious and polite. Hopefully we all were just as gracious and polite winners!

    Will watch the game on DVR later but it appears that we had five people in coverage multiple times. The linebackers were dropping back in coverage more frequently than in the past. Hopefully Narduzzi and Conklin are learning! Coach Canada continues to cover the faults of our defense.

    Does anyone else wonder why Clemson didn’t pass on the third and one at the end of the game? Surely they could have a completed a little dink to get the first down and ice the game.

  11. All season long I have believed that the Pitt kids are very scrappy. They have D1 talent at many positions, especially on offense. On defense the talent may be thin but the kids still hit hard and give their all and IMO are still D1 players, just not as great as some of the other teams have. Remember they had four stops in the fourth quarter, two punts and the last two were game breakers for Clemson, the INT and the 4th down stop.

    Canada called a great game and the Peterman kid did not crack. Conner is a miracle kid. What a player! The affection and the coaching confidence buildup for Blewitt in the first half by Coach Narduzzi turned out to be a terrific coaching move. In the end, what transpired turned out to be right out of a Hollywood sports movie, especially the kiss.

    Yes, I think of these players as kids. IMO they are not the big time pros that too many college football fans think they are. They are a few years out of high school, still learning that the great talent they showed in high school has to be measured now in terms of other great players out of high school. It is a shock of recognition that some of them are able to overcome, and for others it beats them.

    Pitt’s kids are out there putting up with the ridicule of giving up a lot of passing yards. The coaches are still trying to coach them up. The kids are still trying to catch up. Six times they have been successful this season. Three other times the games were still there for the winning at the end.

    This game will live on in the memories of all who played it, coached it, and saw it. Savor it. Great job, Pitt. If their growth continues, these kids of Pitt WILL become Men of Pitt. Hail to Pitt!

  15. Good podcast Reed, you asked about the Syracuse QB (Eric Dungy). He did not play in Cuse’s game yesterday against the Wolfpack and they predictably lost 20-35. He’s also listed as ‘Questionable’ with a head injury for next weeks game against Fla. State. Must be some sort of pre-cautionary concussion type thing. So maybe if we’re lucky he won’t play against us either…. as if they lose against Fla. State there’s no way they can get 6 wins and become bowl eligible. So they just might decide not to risk it and shut him down for the rest of the season.

  21. Don’t know if anyone else saw the on field video showing the team while the game winning kick went through the uprights. As players and coaches ran onto the field in celebration, James Conner slowly walked over to the bench and gave a big hug to someone sitting there by himself. He appeared to whisper a few things into the ear of the person sitting there.

    As he stepped away, you could see that it was Jordan Whitehead sitting on the bench with his arm immobilized. What a great young man James is. The biggest win in 10 or 15 years, and his focus was on saying something inspiring to a fallen teammate, rather than immediately celebrating the victory. Amazing.

  22. One of the best sporting events I’ve ever witnessed and I was blessed to be able to do it with my three sons by my side! As noted above, the Clemson fans couldn’t have been more gracious both before and after the game. I really think they all knew that they were long overdue for their lucky streak to end and thank God it happened for our Panthers on national TV. And why oh why Dabo tried to run the one yard when Clemson could have thrown a pass on every single down and gained 5 yards each time is beyond me. Thanks Dabo!

    If I have to have one complaint it’s that the game took FOUR hours from kickoff to completion and it was a long drive home to Charleston. Think about that for a minute. One hour of actual football and three hours of other stuff.

    Whitehead is a big loss, shame about Watt and Moss, both guys were coming on. Also Soto is pretty banged up.

    Can’t say enough about this offense, kept waiting for them to peter out, but they had the answer every time.

    The defense gave up a ton of passing yards but had THREE interceptions and a gigantic fourth quarter stop. Not to mention the disputed goal line stop and TD that was taken away from them.

    Lewis, Maddox, and Brightwell each with probable touchdown saving catches. Brightwell with the great run after catch.

    We even overcame uncharacteristic drops from Orndoff and the usual from Weah and a fumble by Peterman.

    A game for the ages which no one saw coming, c’mon Huff, fess up.

    As bad as our lines played last week, they were that good this week. Although still no pressure on the QB, we still got one satisfying sack.

    There was one thing that helped us immensely that hasn’t been mentioned. Deshawn Watson was unable to run. One of their greatest weapons was inoperable. Probably the difference in the game.

  42. This Panther team is currently playing with a patchwork of players, some of which, like Aston, weren’t even on scholarship when they joined the roster. And what does this bunch of 2nd & 3rd stringers who were buried on the depth chart do? They take down a #2 undefeated Clemson at Death Valley! $hit like that only happens in dopey screenplays for some sports movie, not in real life.

    Reed loves his stats. The probabilities of wins & loses usually parallels the obvious. The better teams with the consistency to produce those killer stats, game after game are the Victors most of the time against inferior foes. That’s just the way it is, especially when that inferior foe is just going through the motions and lacks the spirit to produce something special.

    This current Pitt team is no longer associated with anything from previous SOP. I’ve been preaching this sermon ever since Narduzzi went on his “Panther Prowl” campaign at the beginning of his tenure last year. This guy is the epitome of a inspirational college football coach. Narduzzi has knowledge, he has perseverance but most of all he has passion! Many ridiculed his emotional displays on the sidelines during recent games but not me, that is just who this guy is.

    College football is a game fueled by emotion and momentum. It ain’t the NFL where full grown men are punching the clock, earning their million+ paychecks to support their families. College football is played by a bunch of kids that are just enamored by the game itself and who are passionate about playing it.

    Motivating such young men to reach beyond their own perceived potential is a key ingredient in what separates a good college football coach from a great one.

    Narduzzi will prove out that he will in fact be a great one. What he produced on Saturday with his ragtagged bunch of replacements was nothing short of remarkable. Coach got his players to play beyond what statistics alone can demonstrate. Narduzzi got his players to play “inspired” football on Saturday. That only occurs when you have captured the minds & hearts of your players. Only when they have been convinced that what Coach has told them about the confidence that he has in them is sincere.

    That is why this team is going to be a team to be reckoned with very soon. Narduzzi loves this team and this team loves playing for Narduzzi. He gets 100% out of his players all of the time. This Panther squad has no quit in them and they are learning how to win. As Coach said after the game, “guys you will remember this game for the rest of your lives”!

    I love this team and Coach Duzz too. My Panther Pride has never died! Hail to Pitt!

  43. Very nice Doc and you sound like how I think. My confidence began to soar the day Chancellor Gallagher came to PITT as the PITT football savior. It went higher when steve was shown the door and left the atmosphere when Pat Narduzzi was hired. I like Barnes as well but he hasn’t moved my needle just yet.

    There is something going on down in Oakland that is actually tangible, you can sense and feel it. If some wants to dig up the pre-season predictions I think many would be surprised at the cautious approach most took. I didn’t really want to give a record but I did. (7 or 8 wins) but to me it was more important to see with my own eyes what kind of product PITT and the coaches would send out onto the field. As well as be competitive in every game. I haven’t been disappointed each week (except maybe Miami) and this team actually puts a smile on my face when I see the effort they all put into this collaborative project. It’s a beautiful thing to see. I have always believed in HCPN and figure he knew what he was doing all along. He did! Some of us got it from the start and it’s been a fun ride and it’s great to see others are “Beginning to see the Light” < “Velvet Underground”

Enjoyed the podcast, if you ever get a chance Reed I am very curious about this turning heads. If it is so taught it is rarely done. I am curious, if you can get an answer, how many times he thinks his players could turn back but don’t , in terms of percentage and what can make them do this.
    It was a wonderful game and gave us a glimpse into the future with Taleni and Brightwell making big plays. While JC is getting it back I hope he returns for his senior season as I think NFL teams would like to see more.
    Banged up or not there should be no excuse to lose to Duke and Syracuse. IMO we are going to have to grin and bear the YUUUUGE passing yards – and ACC record on Saturday.

  46. Ike — Burns did turn his head around on one play, and Dez Bryant took off downfield while Burns was looking back. Dez got some separation and it resulted in a TD reception for about 50 yards if I remember correctly.

    Boulware for Clemson tried looking back on Orndoff’s long TD reception, and it resulted in a catch and and touchdown.

    I’m not saying a DB should never look back, but it’s a very difficult job they have. It’s not simple to know when you can get away with looking back and when you can’t.

    I did like seeing our DBs play off coverage more often, although it resulted in a ton of easy 8 to 10 yard receptions. So we still have up huge passing yards, but it took away some of the deep passing as the 2nd half wore on.
