Pitt is looking to get things right this week and the Panthers had better against what should be an overmatched FCS opponent – the University of New Hampshire.
As much as I love my alma mater (it’s where I met my wife, after all) and as good as UNH is within the FCS ranks Pitt should not have much to worry about. Then again, the words Pitt and should don’t exactly go together.
Still, while the Wildcats make keep it interesting for a quarter or so, as they did 11 years ago at Heinz Field, I expect the Panthers to pull away because of their depth, experience and pure talent.
So, I can’t really compare UNH to Pitt. I do, however, find a parallel with another Pittsburgh football team. That’s the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers? Yep and here’s why.
