Tonight is the end of an era. The River City Rivalry is no more. The Panthers lead the all-time series against the Bearcats 8-3...but there is only one game in this series that we will remember for the rest of our lives. That game, just months after the Scottie Reynolds incident, hurt (literally in my case).
But we've all had to move on since 2009. Brian Kelly moved on to Notre Dame. Dave Wannstedt (Buffalo), Phil Bennett (Baylor), Mike Haywood (Indiana judicial system), Todd Graham (Arizona State), and Keith Patterson (West Virginia) have also moved on. So with "moving on" in mind, we will talk about moving on from the Youngstown State game, learning from the mistakes that were made, and more...after the jump.
A rivalry comes to an end. The winner of this game will keep the Paddlewheel Trophy for a long time. I don't know if that is a good thing.
You only get one chance to make a first impression. It certainly wasn't a good first impression, but does it mean doom and gloom for yet another season?
Righting the ship. It's obviously the theme of the week, but the Panthers are striving to put right what once went wrong.
No place left to go but up. Gene Collier says that Pitt can learn a lot from this past game.
Guess who's back, back again. The six players suspended for the Youngstown State game will return to action tonight.
