Pitt is starting to improve, and that’s worth getting excited about. No, they’re not perfect. The team is far from that. But it’s improving with a lot of young talent, and that’s what this episode centers around. For once, we start things off talking about the defense, because that unit had a dominant performance on Saturday. From pressuring the quarterback, to creating turnovers and providing strong defense in the secondary, the defensive side of the ball was as good as we’ve seen in a long, long time. The offense continued to be effective running the ball as well, and Ben Dinucci seemed to progress a bit from last week’s win at Duke. All of that combined with another punt return from Quadree Henderson to create a banner day, in what was otherwise a cold, wet, dreary, uninspiring atmosphere for football. We talk a ton about this game — as well as how Mario Lemiuex actually hates Penn State and how not watching is sometimes better for your health — in Episode 261!
