Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi joined the show. Pat got a quick laugh out of Chris asking about the “75% WVU fans” report. Pat gave so much credit to the fans from last night and the student section that was ready to go well over an hour before game time. Pat said there is so much unknown with college football, but he wants to play WVU every year. Pat commented on the breaking news that the college football playoff board has OK’d the move to a 12-team playoff system. Pat said he didn’t take much time to enjoy the victory because it’s a turnaround to Tennessee next week and he isn’t happy about some of the things his team did last night. Pat talked about some of the depth on defense and some of the changes they could make going forward. He shared his thoughts on WVU choosing to punt on 4th and short instead of going for the chance to win. He described Kedon Slovis as “solid” in his Pitt debut and Slovis holding onto the ball too long in some cases falls on the coaching. Pat said he can’t wait to go down to Morgantown next year for round two.
Pitt HOFer and NFL HOFer Jimbo Covert joined the show. Jimbo gave his thoughts on the Backyard Brawl victory. He said it’ll take some time for the defensive line for Pitt to settle in and that could explain how the Panthers got gashed against the run last night. He credited the fan bases and said he wants more big rivalry games year after year because fans always show out for them. Jimbo likes college football moving to 12-team playoff in the future because it keeps more teams in it for longer. He said it would also create fewer cases of guys feeling the need of sitting out bowl games because more programs will be in the national title picture. Jimbo was happy with the performance of Kedon Slovis and liked how settled down he seemed late in the game. The guys asked Jimbo about Tennessee, who Pitt has next Saturday.
