Well, It Was a Nice Run

Postby Cane from the Bend » Fri Nov 24, 2017 4:32 pm

.

I thought it might have happened last week, but I was uneasy about this game today.

Pitt really has played some close call losses, and are not as bad as their record would suggest.

Rosier; he was off all game long. The defense did play decent. Not as well as they had been playing. Nowhere near as bad as the offense today.

I never thought we were a playoff team. Pitt deserves the win. But they should give their game ball to Rosier. He had one good drive. Everything else was an either an overthrown or underthrown ball where the defense had a better chance of catching it.

The O-line couldn't protect the QB, and Pitt, only having 7 defensive sacks coming into this game, had 5 against the `Canes. And, No running game. Just a terrible offensive performance all around.

It looked as though Miami had simply expected to have their usual comeback, and did not play with any urgency until after they were down by 3 possessions, with only two minutes left in the game.

Congrats Pitt!

You did what so many others should have this season.

They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

Sorry, Cane.

Man, Pitt... A few years ago.. it was WVU. Now, Miami goes down. ACC might be out of it if Miami beats Clemson. Or whatever. But Pitt, come on. A 4-7 Pitt, wow. Come on Canes, get it done.

Ohio State wins out and they are in. If we only had those posting bucks.

I don't think so, The Domers are waiting in the wings and they bring a very hungry fan base. $$$$

Bummer, Cane. This is why I never bet money on 20 year olds.

It is what Pitt does...spoils

Last season...a mediocre Pitt knocked Penn State out of the playoffs

Pitt, a 21 point dog, kept WVU in 2007 from playing in the BCS championship

and now...Miami.

It is very smart not to bet money on 20 year olds.
