  • Something has got to change

    Pitt has been mediocre for years. A once dominant program last won in 2011 with the former coaches recruits. This current head coach has done nothing on his own other than bring Pitt to a consistent .500 program. With embarrassing losses (some even at home) Ticket prices shot up and the stadium has improved but the product has declined. Even home games are not anywhere where they used to be. Something has to change. The fire that was Pitt football has gone out. I’m sick of hearing “winningest football program” and then lose to Lindenwood (a year out of the NAIA) at home. I haven’t been on this board in years but follow along so I’m not sure how much chatter there has been in the subject. I love my alma but truly don’t look forward to games like I used to.

      Mo Southern wins 86-7 today, possibly launching them to an eventual season ending 4 game winning streak. If that comes true, then I’d guess that would make some of you happy in that Pitt would have to make that coaching change you’ve been wanting.

        Didn’t UNO dropping football play a big factor in their 2011 team. I thought they picked up several kids. Biggest factor was John Brown, but I get what you are saying.

        Pitt has the resources to be good, they need a new staff. They do well in Kansas City they are right next to Oklahoma, do they recruit Arkansas at all? I’d do a national coaching search and I would hire an assistant or two with recruiting connections. Coach Brown is a great leader at Hays, but a big part of his success is having Al to recruit out of state.

          For the first time in 25 years I didn’t even check the Pitt score until looking about 5 minutes ago. ANOTHER loss at the Jungle. When will this stop? When will we make a change to at least get back to competitive against .500 teams?

            4th loss in a row. It is a bad sign the game thread is only one page long because if there is one thing worse than anger, it is apathy. Fans not caring is a lot worse than being pissed they lost. In the game thread a poster said Pitt had a lot of quit in them. The thing I remember the most about the end of Broyles career was the way Pitt absolutely laid down at Truman in the last game of the season. Usually players quitting on their coach means doom for the coach but with Pitt's administration I have no idea.

              Frustration is understandable. Pitt State has lost four straight but, it's important to note that they had the four best teams in the league four weeks in a row. The Gorillas should be favored pretty heavily in the last two games (Washburn, MSSU). If they win both, that's a 7-4 season. Not trending the right way but, not exactly a program that is completely devoid of talent. They'll make a bowl and (probably) win that to get to 8 wins.

                Pitt can’t just count on a win against WU, they almost always play each other tough. Four losses in a row is tough, but prior to that they played one good team and beat up on the worst of the worst in the conference. So it is less about the team falling apart and more about them finding their actual level (bowl team)

                  Word in the parking lot is that it is already fait accompli we will lose to Southern.
                  If the team mood is likewise, the Ickybods have hope.

                    This is a clueless response to what Pitt fans are saying.

                      Both Washburn and Missouri Southern can beat this poorly coached Pitt State team.

                          John Brown was a Beck get. The single biggest season changing recruit in the division's history? That was a near .500 team as well without JB. The fall started long before Beck took over as HC.

                            7-4 in today's MIAA is a program lacking talent to compete nationally. And I would think that is what a program like Pitt's should be after.

                              And honestly, Beck was doing a lot of recruiting as well.
