RE: Pitt vs ND
ND was a lot better than we were. There's really not much else to say about this game. Pitt does not have the talent to hang out with ND unless they play perfect football. They played far from perfect football today. Predictably, then, they lost.

On to the next game. I think we'll at least be in all of them from here on out.

RE: Pitt vs ND
Couple of thoughts:

Point blank, Pitt was just outclassed by a better team at every position on the field. The only player that could potentially start for Notre Dame is Tyler Boyd. With that said, I loved some of the aggression that I've seen even though the plays didn't work out for us. Perhaps the design of the fleeflicker could've been better. But we also gotta credit ND's backside guy for staying at home and making a play. Maybe Kelly saw the onside kick coming, I don't know; however, I felt the timing of it was perfect. We get a TD on the first drive of the half, get the onside kick and we'd have some momentum on our side to possibly bring the game within a touchdown. We don't get the onside kick and they get a TD of their own and it's back to a 17 point deficit.

Our DL was disappointing to me. I think their OL had something to do with that, but man. It just seemed like every run play gashed us for 5-6 yards a pop. I'm rather convinced that ND would've beaten us if they ran the ball 60X's yesterday. For example, Price gets a huge sack and they lose about 7-8 yards, then ND runs the ball for 15 to make it a reasonable 3rd and 3. Then, even when we blitzed, Kizer had three hours to chill in the backfield and find an open receiver downfield.

I still think the direction of our team/program is on the upswing. But after reading the lair and posts on Pitt Panthers Fanatics (I encourage all to join that Facebook page) it was like we're 0-9 with no shot to ever win a game ever again.

Yeah, getting ND into 2nd and long and only to have them be 3rd and short was frustrating to see. It seemed that the Pitt D was only getting a part of the tackle and they guy would just keep going - so instead of a short/no gain, it would turn into 7-8.

Anyway, the combined record of teams Pitt has lost to is 25-2 while the teams they beat are 17-28 (excluding YSU). The final three games are a combined 17-10. Let's see if they can pull out two wins. I didn't watch the Duke-UNC game to know whether it was just one of those days (for example, like Pitt had against GaTech last year) for Duke. I think Pitt's chances are ok but they need to keep the mental mistakes to a minimum. If they have TOs, dropped passes, etc, they will lose. The offense will need to score at least 30 to win.

I wasn't sure if you saw this but people were wondering why Ollison's not in there in passing situations (especially last game against UNC).... here you go
