Pitt’s ACC Debut a Giant Disappointment

Pitt head coach Paul Chryst had no answer for the potent Florida St. offense last night. On paper, everything sounded perfect. Reschedule Pitt’s biggest opponent of the season, Florida State, to a nationally televised slot on Monday night on Labor Day.  It would serve as a perfect way to launch the Panthers into the national spotlight and show everyone that they could hang with...
