Well, it’s the end of another football season and another year (and the end of my first full season at the helm of the POV), and I’d like to try to start a tradition if I might.
After the Quick Lane bowl I posted (rather hastily and somewhat drunkenly) on Twitter that “90% of POV readership had turned on Pat Narduzzi”. I later deleted this tweet after a couple of people commented (in a very diplomatic way I will add) that this may or may not be true. Well, I thought to myself, there is really only one way to find out, and so I developed a few poll questions…
The poll is open for a week and I’ll write and article about the results when I have them. I’d like to get at least 30 responses, but would love to get over 100 because more responses make the data that much more meaningful. If I can get over 100 responses I’ll also send them directly to the Pitt SID, although I suspect they read the POV from time to time anyway…
Please note that you can only vote once.
Also…regardless of whether or not you answer the questions, I would like to thank each and every reader and commenter for being part of the POV this past year. While running this blog can be gruelling at times, it is also an incredibly rewarding way to build relationships with some truly outstanding people, both virtually and in-person, and I value that tremendously. So Thank You All.
I’d also like to thank Reed (again) for handing me the keys to the Corvette. It’s been a heck of a ride and I’m just starting to get a feel for the clutch.
Okay so on to the Poll…It’s easy and 100% Anonymous, so EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT A COMMENTER PLEASE TAKE THE POLL. It’s a way to have your voice heard in a very safe and secure way.
- Answer the five upfront questions first (Ideally before you read any comments)
- Note that you will have to click VOTE for each separate question. Yes WordPress sucks. I appreciate your participation.
- THEN look at the stats.
- Then answer the final question.
- Then comment as per usual.
About the stats: The goal is to see if Pitt has progressed under Narduzzi, so I’ve compared Paul Chryst’s last year (2014) with Pat’s most recent year (2019). In an effort not to influence the poll I’m not going to write any commentary, but please feel free to add your analysis in the comments section. I’m sure you will find a lot to talk about.
Okay folks, that is it. Thanks for playing along, and I’m looking forward to a great 2020 with all you crazy cats. Have a safe and happy New Year!
