  1. Is it SOP or not SOP today that is the question?

    The NCST game put a damper on enthusiasm, a fluke or SOP?

    We will see.

    1. My theory (although you wouldn’t guess it from my prediction) is that NC state is actually pretty good. I think they had like 20 ppl out against Virginia tech.

      The question for Pitt I think is all inside their heads. Which brings us back to your very relevant point about to SOP or not to SOP…

  2. I’ll throw out some over understand for today. Completely arbitrary and made up by me.

    Pitt penalties: 6.5
    Kenny Pickett passing Yards: 260.5
    Pitt rushing yards (net): 93.5
    Pitt sacks: 4.5
    Pitt points: 24.5

  3. Ok my take on your over/under and my numbers

    Pitt penalties: over 8
    Kenny Pickett passing Yards: over 426
    Pitt rushing yards (net): under 37
    Pitt sacks: under 2
    Pitt points: over 27

    Headed down to Fernandina Beach sports bar to watch the game, any ideas to propose on a drinking game?

  5. Traveling squad for Pitt of the 75 players 14 are true freshman. Did not make the trip W Davis and Krull(no surprise on those two I don’t think) and Camp(snake bitten I presume). Addison, A J Davis, Bright, Wayne and K Wright made the trip. Whether the later group plays much is another question.

  6. I’ll take the over on all MM numbers.

    Pitt will show up today and get back in the ACC title hunt.

    One loss does not knock us out. The 2nd one probably will.

    Let’s get to 1-0 by evenings end.
