The offense looks great. The defense has look putrid every single game this year. Duke was playing there ... 4th string QB i think? Someone who was playing WR and TE before.. there is no way someone like that should be able to drive up and down the field and make it look easy. The defense is a mess.

I mean I love how the offense looks, but you can't expect them to put up 35+ points every week which is what its gonna take for this team to win probably. The defense is THAT Bad.

Duke won 6 games last year, and lost their last 5. Connette is their backup QB.

Welp maybe duke does still suck. Thought they were ranked last year but that must have been early.

Vinopal got smoked for at least two touchdowns from what I saw. Can't see him starting for much longer. Its not like one of the freshman could do worse. Its largely the same secondary as last season, minus Holley. The performance this far shows just how good Holley was.

The pitt super panthers have another big game this weekend against those yuppies from UVA. If pitt is going to get to the lofty 6 win plateau, this game would go a long way to getting to a bowl game. That would give pitt 4 wins, and you gotta figure (hope/pray) that pitt takes care of business versus ODU and Navy. The cuse is another must win type game if they want to get to a bowl. Plus, the VT, UNC, ND, and Miami games are all somewhat winnable. So 6 looks attainable right now and the rarified air of 7 wins is not out of reach.

The gentleman is implying that the ODU and Navy games will lead to 3rd and 4th wins....Or maybe not. It's ambiguous.

I said at the beginning of the season Pitt would go 7-5. This is one of those games to get there.

GT looked very beatable last night as well.

"beatable" implies Pitt can hang 60 on them, amirite? Otherwise, with that D... Not counting anything before it's hatched.

Absolutely. But I had GT as a definite loss in my 7-5 prediction.

Outgunning the opponent is realistically possible.

Beating down UVA? You guys catch on quickly. Maybe you're meant for the ACC after all.

Pitt's offense has stagnated this game. Savage has thrown two pretty bad INT's. The defense has done its job for once though. UVA driving though.

A win is a win. Nice job by the D today, though not sure if the UVA offense is just that bad. The offense looked pretty bad and only scored because UVA gave them good field position on two drives. Hopefully soon the offense and the defense can play well in the same game.

Lots of room for improvement though.

Wins over Duke and UVA are cause to celebrate?
