Let’s start putting our thought about the upcoming game into winners, losers and scores.  As I wrote yesterday this is a tough one for me to try to figure out.  So what I’ll do personally is default back to what I felt about the team before the season started – our strengths and weaknesses.

First off for me is that I wrote our Quarterback was an upgrade and that our Defensive Line would be one also.  I still believe that and think those will be our strong points on Saturday.

I stated our Defensive backs would be a downgrade and that our OL would be a big downgrade.  Nothing I have seen has convinced me otherwise so far – pushing the Albany defenders off the LOS is one thing, having this OL do it against P5 schools is totally different.  So I believe those two units will be our weak spots.  QB Trace McSorley, his receivers and the PSU’s front seven defense are going to take advantages there.

We underestimate what high quality talent does with a team.  I don’t think our starting 22 is all that much more talented than it was at this time last year with a few exceptions – Pickett stands out there. This will be his first true test with coaches and fans’ realistically high expectations for him.  Miami was a great game but the expectation pressure wasn’t really on him that game like it is now and will be tomorrow.  He’ll do well but it may not be enough.

So we’ll be on the short end of the stick pure talent wise out on the field of play against PSU.  Because of that I think we’ll see a relative lower scoring game on our part tomorrow.  Tho odds have leveled out to Pitt getting between 8.5 and 10 points.  That sounds about right to me but I think PSU adds a field goal or two to push it up a bit.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed we can pull this one out (and we sure can)…but my head differs from my heart:

PSU – 33  Pitt – 21

Hey – I was wrong two years ago, could easily happen again.  I’m not nearly as good at predicting actual games as I am the broad strokes of the team and program.

What are your thoughts?  Comment with them then we’ll have a game thread going on starting at 7:45 PM tomorrow evening.

HTP!

Here are the all-important Game Notes… especially because it took me 20 minutes to find somewhere to buy a game program last Saturday. You might want to print out the rosters for the game.

  1. After watching both teams last week it is hard to predict tomorrow’s outcome—-but two things worry me about Pitt 1) the defensive backs vs McSurley and 2) Pickett under the bright lights and big stage.
    Two things excite me 1) PSU defense looked awfully tired and slow vs App St (aka Pitt last year cs YSU) and 2) Barkley and Girseki are gone

    I foresee a late Pickett dive into the end zone to propel Pitt to a win.

    Kessman better make a couple because he could be the difference and conditions will make it just that much tougher.

    I would never wish for an injury, but if someone has to go out, Mcsore ly rather than Pickett has to be the way it goes Would be ok to see our D bend some then break him, just temporarily. Not that I think Mcsore ly can’t screw up the game for PSu but Pickett knocked out seems like it would be impossible to overcome.

    I see Ollison coming up big too and one or 2 trickeration plays to turn the game our way.

    PSU blocks a punt, runs for 225 and throws for 300. Pitt recovers a PSU fumble, runs for 185 and throws for 255 in a loosing cause.

    PSU has more talent and speed. Coaching is about even. PSU’s offense is better than the Pitt’s defense. Pitt’s offense and PSU’s defense are similar in strength.

    Pitt can win if:
    1 they tackle really well (as in like the WVU 13-9 game),
    2 sustain long drives on offense to keep the ball out of McSorley’s hands,
    3 give our CBs some help with a center fielder safety against the taller, faster PSU receivers to negate two or three big plays.
    4 Watson calls a great game, with pass plays on non-passing downs, draw/screens to keep an aggressive D off of Pickett and some razzle dazzle flea flicker type plays etc.

    Like

  5. Penn State is still going to put up lots of points this year so I say they get over 30. The question is can Pitt, put up over 30 to match them.

    In Pickett’s last big game he put up 24 against a good Miami defense. Did the offense get better? It all depends on the OL, Watson and the OL coach. I think Watson’s offense will be good this year, hopefully it won’t take four games.

    I am still optimistic since it is early in the season. 🙂

  8. I like Pitt’s chances. PS’s offensive line is a strength but it will face our strong D-line and very good linebacker crew. It will be a battle all night. We need to pressure McSorely and I believe we will, helping our backers defend against PS’s receivers. Our offensive line knows what it takes to win, and here’s hoping Bookser plays Saturday. We have three quality running backs that will have an advantage given PS’s untested linebacking corps and young defense. And the same is the case with our receivers, a talented group with speed. If Pickett can play with the poise we’ve seen so far and we contain PS’s passing game, we have a shot.
    Pitt wins 30-28.

    I think Pitt will win the last one either way next year when McSorley is gone and Pickett has a full year under his belt. The Pitt D will be better as well as maybe the O-line. Recruiting a good 4* frosh back to come in and play will be important too. Winning the last game and getting the #100th game win is more important than this one IMO.

Next year will be better once Narduzzi has time to coach up all his 2* and 3* recruits.

    2. Radar shows a horrendous storm formation that stretches across Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. Ugly, ugly, ugly. Not good for crowd or either team.

  59. I called this psu 33 Pitt 17 early, I’m not changing due to possible weather. Not sure how 2,000 pirates fans will impact tailgating. Like most fans I don’t get why we don’t pull the plug and make the switch on the unis. If we are going to have a shot, I’d move Ford to safety. Also hope a playmaker at WR makes a coming out tonight. Hail to Pitt

  60. its raining (flooding) here in DFW. I feel for you. I will be grilling and drinking beers in the rain. So I’m with you in spirit and know how it feels. Crack open a few and begin grilling. I dare the cops to shut down a good tailgate. Making Texas Chili right now…no beans.

  62. My fellow POVerts’ superior football acumen is no match for my puny emotional guesswork. We’re due for a surprisingly low score. Pitt rope-a-dopes the Pedos in a 19-15 victory.

  63. Aflac question of the day during South Carolina – Georgia game was: George Rogers (from South Carolina) won the Heisman in 1980. Who came in second?

    Immediately I said Hugh Green. Announcers had kind words for Green & mentioned that Pitt had a big game tonight.

    1. The Force will be with Pitt. Yoda has a Dinocat Tatoo on arse. A regrettable decision since Padawan Cornhole promised it would be Pitt Script. Not even a light sabre can erase that mistake.

  64. Heard a guy say he wasn’t going tonight because of the rain. Afraid there will be some impact, who knows how much. Won’t help with traffic either. I do like Ollison and Aston in the mud. Field does drain well though.
    Rain light but steady for the last couple hours.. Not sure when the tarp comes off.

  65. The coaches at Pitt should be ashamed to bring a team on the field so ill prepared.They look like the gang that could not shoot straight ,especially Special Teams and Offense. Clutch plays and penalties even on the coach. Can not handle any longer. At least Virginia loses to Indiana maybe we can get them and Cuse. We have potential there but we keep shooting ourselves in the foot.
