Pitt football reaches all-time low with loss to Youngstown State

The Pitt football team lost to Youngstown State 31-17 Saturday.

Let that sink in for a minute.

The Panthers, in the first game of the Paul Chryst era, lost its home opener at Heinz Field to Youngstown State.


And it wasn't that close.

Youngstown State did what it wanted on offense.

Pitt couldn't do much on offense or defense.

An ugly loss? It was worse than that.

An all-time loss.

In their last season in the Big East, the Panthers didn't even look ready for Division III football let alone the ACC.

There's no way to erase the stink and stench of this loss.

It almost makes you yearn for the days of Todd Graham, who just happened to win his team's season opener 63-6.

But Pitt fans have to live with the fact that their team lost to Youngstown State.

That's not the way to start a season.

On the bright side: It can't get any worse.

But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
