Default Re: The Pitt Panther Thread

I follow Pitt on the periphery...ND loss was certainly acceptable, since they seem to be for real. I'm a little confused about the OU loss. Sure, Frank Solich coaches the team, and that is a HUGE step up in coaching for them (Ohio U), but not for the MAC. Miami of Ohio alone has been coached by:

Woody Hayes
Sid Gillman
Ara Parseghian
Bo Schembechler
(If you young guys don't recognize some or any of those names, do a little homework...3 of the 4 are among the greatest college coaches ever, and Sid Gillman was not only a great college coach, but also a great pro coach, and is partly responsible for the game we now know as the Super Bowl)

Dion Byrum returning 2 picks to the house made all the difference, but why was OU within 2 TD's to begin with?

New system and all that will slow Wannstedt down, but he'll be fine in the end.
