So I actually watched an entire college football game (other than WVU) and realized why I don't make a habit of it.
1. As much as I enjoy the coverage of NHL on Versus, the coverage of MWC football is definitely NOT BCS worthy. The announcer and color analyst (Kelly Stouffer) were absolutely dreadful. It was like listening to me and my buddy calling the game, and that would not be good. The MWC commercials reminded me of the Mentos commercials. The halftime studio team (which included Eric Crouch....yikes) was about as insightful as my Christmas Cactus.
2. I firmly believe that Dave Wannstedt is a solid recruiter. I also firmly believe that he may be the worst gameday coach and most predictable coach I've ever seen. There was absolutely no sense of urgency on that final drive when Susteri looked very solid and comfortable until they got into the Red Zone. Play for the win? Of course not, this is PITT and Wannstedt. You always play conservatively and go for the tie in order to extend the game. Is it me or is that a stupid gameplan when in a very hostile environment?
3. If PITT is truly the #1 team in the Big East, then that is a pointed indictment on the league this season. I do believe that the league will be down, due to the incoming signal callers around the league, but surely the plethora of RBs should make up for that a little.
