Today is a big day in the history of the "Save Dave" campaign. As you know, Save Dave is based upon one single ideal: employing Dave Wannstedt as head coach of Pitt for all of eternity (we believe Wannstedt to be an angel from Mountaineer heaven, hence the eternity part).
Tonight, The Mustache Formerly Known As Wannstedt and his Pitt Panthers take on Navy at 8 PM on national TV. We're not sure why Pitt is on national TV, but if we've done something wrong, this certainly seems the harshest of penalties.
Either way, believe it or not, this is a game we need Pitt to win. Why, you ask? Well, if we are to be graced by Wannstedt's presence for much longer, he has to actually win some out of conference games. Since this is an out of conference game that in no way affects WVU, why not start here.
Since I can't in right mind just ask you to support Pitt football -- and you know I wouldn't -- I am instead going to bribe you. If you silently cheer for Pitt tonight and at the same time assure the continued success of Mountaineer football, I will personally send you a commemorative "Save Dave" coffee mug, which retails for $5.99 in major department stores across the nation.
And if that's not enough, I'll throw in a t-shirt at no additional value. This t-shirt is great for telling the world just how much faith you have in the Wannstedt-era.
So, go my children. Cheer for Pitt, as it is the key to future Mountaineer glory.
UPDATE: If you order in the next ten minutes, you'll also receive a limited edition "Save Dave" bumper sticker.
NOTE: Look forward to a live blog of the monumental Navy @ Pitt matchup tonight at 8. 5th Year Senior and your main man Charley West will be on the ones and twos.
