Hopefully those guys are still celebrating the Clemson win. Duke needs this game.

Didn't Blewitt blow it against Duke last year?

That was two years ago in Pittsburgh, Zack. I was actually in attendance for that one. Sirk won it in OT with a QB keeper.

I anticipate Conner breaking Pitt's single game rushing record

I went to that 58-55 game in the rain 3 seasons ago. That was unbelievable.

The Defense has played better lately. Performed admirably against Carolina last week.

They did. Could have easily folded like that last Thursday night Duke-UNC game. Great adjustments. Was also nice to see the offense dig into the playbook a little.

Yes. They showed a bit of innovation. Sorely lacking all year... and the offensive line had improved quite a bit. Too bad Duncan is hurt.

Gotta work tomorrow during the game, hopefully Duke's able to get the win. It would be pretty impressive in a rebuilding season to still get to a bowl game.

Dm, we try to keep the boards relatively clean so I merged the injury thread I to the game thread. Thanks for posting that.

One of the most unbelievable games I've ever seen. Both teams agreeing to play their 3rd string defense was really unprecedented.

Pitt offense averages 37.6 points per game which is 3rd in ACC. Pitt defenses gives up 35.2 points per game which is dead last in the ACC. Our offense must efficiently execute long, time consuming, points producing drives which keeps the Pitt offense on the sideline.

Well, we've shown against Louisville and North Carolina that we can do that... I'll echo my sentiments from last week. If don't turn the ball over, we win.

And welcome, NavyBob!

Thanks!

I posted in a couple of places prior to the Carolina game that Daniel Jones would have to put the offense on his shoulders and carry them. He did that and we won. The same goes for today. If Jones has a good game, and we don't turn it over, we will win.

I think we will see a play today where Conner has all 11 defensive guys on him and he drags them in.

Appears from checking the score at work that this game has not gone as hoped. Damn.

Welcome to the board!

So I didn't get to watch at all but was it a case of Pittsburgh being that much better or Duke playing so horrible it made them look like world beaters?

Also I see the kicker missed another field goal, how far out was it and was it anywhere close to making it?

Thanks for the welcome. It's hard to know where to begin to describe our ineptitude today. Coach Cut was very critical when interviewed at halftime. We could not run the ball, Shaun fumbled twice, they ran all over us (and it was not just Conner), and they threw to wide open receivers over and over. Only good things I noticed were that Bryon Fields had a pick six and it is evident that Daniel Jones is going to be a great quarterback. As for the kicking, Reed made two xps and missed a 31 yarder very wide right. Daniel Jones appeared to be our best punter.

Thanks for the recap, sounds like it was brutal to watch. When a 31 yard field goal is being missed badly, it may be time to move on from that kicker, jeez.

The problem with finding a new kicker is that there are only about 25 legitimately good kickers in the world. All of them play in the NFL.

I would be willing to bet that there are 15 dudes on the Duke soccer team that can make XP's and most FG's out to about 40 yards. My high school football team always used soccer players for kickers, and this was in the 80's.

A kid who was a year younger than me when I was in high school did this. He had no real training but could kick the ball further than anyone I've ever seen. Ended up with a football scholarship to a small school and a few years later gets drafted into the NFL. 10 years later I still can't believe how far he could kick the ball even when you see him kicking on Sundays.
