The University of Pittsburgh football team was supposed to contend this year. Dave Wannstedt was supposed to deliver on his promise this year. This was supposed to be "the year" Pitt finally returned to national prominence. After the huge upset of West Virginia at the end of last season, everyone on this side of the Mason Dixon line believed it. But a sad reality set in on Saturday. Pitt really does stink. Anyone that thinks they might be a "contender" doesn't lose to Bowling Green. Pitt did. Pitt was an embarrasment on Saturday. I am going to say it now. Dave Wannstedt will be fired at the end of the season, maybe earlier. If Pitt really wants to contend they have to do something. I didn't get to watch the game, but from what I heard the play-calling was quite conservative. Maybe Offensive-Coordinator Matt Cavanaugh is the problem. I don't know. But Pitt has to do something if they are serious about contending for a National Championship. There is still hope this year though. Perhaps Pitt's embarrassing loss to Bowling Green was just a case of the Panthers having the jitters on opening day. Who knows. But I doubt that. Pitt really is shit this year.
