Featured Fanpost: Why The Cincinnati Game Is Huge

Needless to say, the season has not gotten off to a great start.

The loss to YSU has made the Cincinnati game much more important. Not only is it the first conference game and a chance for the team to regain confidence, it also will determine the attendance in the Virginia Tech game. Think about it. If Pitt lays an egg on national television after a loss to a FCS team, support for this team could very well hit a new low. The announced attendance was over 40,000 for yesterday, but the actual number was closer to 30,000.

If the team gets embarrassed Thursday, Heinz Field will be a ghost town for the Virginia Tech game, which is supposed to be the marquee home game of the season. If Pitt ends up being 0-3 with a quickly dwindling fanbase, everyone is in for a long season.
