I don't think. They are moving the ball at will right now.

The structure in the NFL is great, but you have to love some of the awesome plays/formations you see in college. For the most part its kids who wont go pro playing the game they love like its still backyard football and sometimes the plays reflect that.

That's true, but just about every college kid aspires to play football professionally, regardless of how unrealistic those dreams may be, that's why I think the NFL, pro-style offense is usually more appealing to recruits.

The sad thing is, the secondary was supposed to be a strength of this team.

I was kind of worried when I kept seeing Tags promoted as this amazing player. He seems like a great kid / he's a nice player, but he's far from a superstar imo

The D looks lost and they are embarrassing themselves. Who is the D coordinator?

He kind've is the 'leader' of this team, at least from an emotional stand-point, but other than that, he's not an elite football player.

Nice run by Graham, cut-backed, changed directions.

Can't believe I'm saying this, he still looks slightly more poised than what he did last year, but that's not the highest of standards.

He hasn't played awful, by his standards at least, but man oh man when you have a guy wide open like that for a TD you HAVE to hit that play.

I know, clearly the offense is Youngstown State's strength, I don't care how many starters they have returning, it's inexcusible to let them move the football on horrible turf at Heinz Field at will.

Unacceptable, knowing that Street was wide open, plus Sunseri's a senior at this point (thankfully), he should know better.

It's not like Pitt's defensive line is generating any form of pass-rush either.
