    Default how stupid are the pitt coaches

    Its a tie game you are playing a peyton manning type of offense
    and your 2nd half offense is not doing well.

    You have a 1st and goal or maybe it was 2nd and goal and there is 1:45 or so left on game clock.

    You have to understand game situations...you make the opponent take all their timeouts and you play to win the game. You run the ball and do as Brian Westbrook did last year and you take a knee so many times...and after you have burned all the time off the clock you try a FG on 3rd down at the center of the field. I still can't believe they scored so early on the final td. THe game was in their grasp but did they really want to win it. YOu knew gilliard would run it back huge and it was only a matter of time before uc scored again. that's my take on it.

    Still can't believe pitt lost.

    Yea.... Like the statement made before...; "Bless his heart, he has to be the sickest man in America."

    .... That's the way the ball bounces.... It shouldn't have come down to that to begin with, so it's not his fault IMO.... The better team won, and hopefully they represent the Big East well in the Sugar Bowl (that's the prediction)......

    I thought the worst part from a coaching perspective was that last play of the game. There was very little chance that they pull it out, but still a chance if they can manage to get about 45 yards on one play. He puts the QB under center, 2 wideouts, and runs play action. I will never understand that call.

    Well, I've gone on highlights and commentary since I missed it... I'll take your word for it....

    .... But then again, that's DW for 'ya.....

    The missed extra point would only have tied it. Pitt may/probably would have lost in OT anyway!

    Wankstead is what he is. Got us into the top 10 for a week or two, can't win that big game.

    I'm not sure if we could do better to be honest.

    I have to point out that Davey is seen on the sideline mother****ing up and down when that extra point is ****ed up instead of telling his return team to kneel on the ball if it's kicked deep.

    Those little details matter.

    On a side note, recall that Wankstead interviewed for the Steeler HC position.

    Can't say our special teams would be any worse....

    I'm not a DW fan at all, but he did not lose this game IMO....

    It is what it is.

    Circumstances caused me to miss the game, although I was really looking forward to it.

    But still, this one stings.

    It kind of reminded me of the Steelers lately.

    The ST's and Defense blew the game (I can't even blame the holder). 44 points should be enough to win a game.

    Cincinnati moved the ball at will on the ST and D. Either one of them hold ONE extra drive or series... and Pitt wins that game.

    Again, can't always keep blaming coaches for things. Bottom line... players have to make the plays to stop the other team still.

    Much agreed you need to show control and not get too high or too low and always be thinking ahead.

    I dunno, I think Pitt CAN do better than Wannstedt.

    Don't get me wrong, I have nothing wrong with the guy. He's proven to be a good recruiter, rebuilt some of the burnt bridges with local coaches that Walt Harris had knocked to the ground, and put Pitt in a good position, where they're a regular in the BCS Standings.

    That said, I don't ever see Wannstedt being the guy who takes Pitt to that "next level".

    Wanny will be fine. He'll build a consistent 9-10 win program. Which is fine with this Pitt grad.
