Quite frankly, this was the worst football game I've ever seen. Any hope for a quick start in the second half of the season was extinguished with that debacle. Utah stinks and Pitt still lost. What else can you say? It's some of the worst Pitt football I've ever seen.
At this point I almost feel like I'm piling on Tino Sunseri, so all I'm going to say is that his season has been tragic.
This has to be the worst quarterbacking that the Panthers have had in modern history.
Giving Ray Graham just 12 carries is a disgrace.
The special teams was again hit or miss. Buddy Jackson returned a kickoff for a TD, Andrew Taglianetti blocked a punt for a TD, Yoklic had 51-yard punt into the wind, and Drew Carswell caused a fumble (recovered by Utah) on a kickoff. On the other hand, Ronald Jones mysteriously let a punt along the sideline go which resulted in it being downed at the one, Yoklic, with the wind, kicked 27-yard and 26-yard punts, and Jackson fumbled on a kickoff after being tackled inside his own 15-yard line.
Mike Shanahan, Devin Street, and Cam Saddler once again did nothing. Literally nothing. None of the three had a single catch.
Greg Williams, Chad Alexcih, and to a lesser degree, Aaron Donald, had good games on defense but giving up 174 yards rushing to somebody named John White IV is a failure.
Sunseri throws at the feet of a wide open Jones on 3rd and 3, Jared Holley makes a pathetic attempt on a tackle, Brandon Lindsey misses an easy sack, a defensive timeout on a 3rd and 17, and on and on. It would be laughable if it wasn't so sad.
Todd Graham may get this turned around, but it's looking less and less likely that it will be this year. And if this horrible season continues, it's going to make it more difficult to turn it around in the future. The fan base may already be lost and you can't really blame them. Losing is one thing, but this has become sad and depressing.
