    This man needs to be fired. Pitt used to have such a good football program. I don’t know what has happened to it. He needs to stop talking a produce a winning team.

      Marilyn,
      Give coach Graham at least 1/2 of a chance. There are still meaningful games to be played yet this season. Nothing has happened to PITT football except a new coaching staff with old coaching staff’s players and a new system. Give them a fair chance to succeed and when they do, you will be excited about PITT football again.

    These gadget offenses that Graham runs are a fad and unsustainable with student-athletes and toughening NCAA practice time rules. Players dont have the time to learn all these silly trick plays. It’s a joke. This is PITTSBURGH! We’ve forgotten more about football than Graham will ever know. Defense and 3 yds and a cloud of dust offense is what has, does, and will always work.

    When first hired, Pit’s (and Coach Graham’s) pre-season bragging started in earnest. Using media super-hype, fans were assured of gametime excitement which would keep everyone on their feet with something called a “high octane” style of play. It’s very obvious that Pit’s football team can’t “walk the talk”. The current excuse now is that Coach Graham doesn’t have HIS recruiting team in place which he would need to produce the results. Well, did Pit’s Athletic Department give that any thought before they unleashed their torrent of promisory commercials? Did anyone ever hear of the old saying: “Don’t count your chickens BEFORE they’re hatched”? It will suffice to advise all A.D. directors, media departments and coaches: tone down the pre-season rhetoric and hold the braggin’ rights until positive results are achieved. Crow feathers can taste awful!

      I DON’T KNOW WHERE MR. YAMKA IS FROM, (w.va perhaps) BUT IT IS OBVIOUSLY NOT PITSBURGH SINCE HE DOES’NT KNOW HOW TO SPELL PITT.

  4. JACK IS WRONG AND PITT IS TERRIBLE says:

    PITT( YOU LIKE THAT JACK) SUCKS. GUESS WHAT I LIVE IN PITTSBURGH, AND THEY SUCK. DID I MENTION THAT PITT FOOTBALLL SUCKS, OH AND I’M FROM PITTSBURGH, PA.

    OH AND JACK YOU MAKE YOURSELF SOUND STUPID WHEN YOU SAY ONE PERSON CAN’T SPELL PITT AND THEN YOU SPELL PITTSBURGH “PITSBURGH”
