Saw on news that Pitt just released a news statement saying they haven't offered the job to anyone yet and that it is still open. Probably means that they can't get everything together to have a press conference tonight and will make it offical sometime tomorrow.
Steve Peterson: "Here is the contract. Please fill in the numbers, sign and return."
The only error in that proposed conversation is that Steve Peterson is even involved in a football decision.
Excellent point. I liked him better at Nebraska. He kind of reminds me of a Jerry Jones type. Someone who doesn't know enough about football to be an Assistant Special Teams Quality Control coach, but uses his power to influence the head coach. Wannstedt took that team to 3 straight bowl games. This year, they missed expectations, but they also were decimated by a lot of injuries to star players. You could blame the lack of depth on Dave, but let's keep in mind that backups are backups for a reason. They weren't as good as Romeaus and Mason. Look at what the Steelers became when Troy and Smith were out last year. Same deal. Now imagine what the record would have been if they had started some marginally talented rookie QB. This is what Pitt faced this season.
We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.
I hope Bradley goes even though it pains me to say that knowing he was one of PSUs only remaining talent. I'll go further and say he should take Vanderlinden and McQueary with him and totally gut the mess we have at PSU now. Someone's gotta send Joe and Curley a message,
Wherever somebody’s strugglin’ to be free,
Look in their eyes ma you’ll see me.
I think Bradley is a great choice, if only because of his ability to recruit in western pa. He's widely known as one of the top recruiters in this state. And if he comes he just might bring a few coaches with him who have other states that they recruit well in. I read an article written by a penn state football writer that said he may take Larry Johnson Sr. with him. And he recruits maryland and virginia extremely well.
