What we said in the recap: “Another game, another disappointing loss. That’s the takeaway here, unfortunately. I give the kids credit for fighting until the bitter end but, as I said some time ago, at some point, the moral victories end. When you haven’t won a single conference game all year, ‘keeping it close’ becomes less and less attractive.”

Prediction: Prediction?

Hail to Pitt.
