Notable Quotes from various game-time conversations:
"this is putting more strain on my bad heart than pt this morning..."
"was that not the scariest pass ever?"
"thank God the future of our navel is under control'
9:55- Time to see who wants it more. I expect both teams to have moderate success on defense with the halftime adjustments, but something has to give. Mark my words, first team to turn it over loses.
9:58- Hand to hand combat in Alumni Hall at halftime. That sure kicks the hell out of the marching band!
10:01- How come in these kinds of game we get a key holding penalty and the other team doesn't?
10:02- This is very very very bad.
10:05- We are getting killed off of play action. We need to get guys to stay on their men.
10:07- No this is not a touchback. I have no idea what the official was looking at.
10:18-Now we're down, and break wise, we're even. We need to score here just to stay on serve.
10:18-Hmm, I was not aware that Kettani rushed for 250 yards in the bowl game. Thanks for the heads up Coach Holtz!
10:23- TOUCHDOWN NAVY. What else is new. We need a stop or this thing will go on forever. Please no, I still have to finish that paper tonight before PT in the morning...
10:32- WE HELD THEM TO A FIELD GOAL! HOOAH
10:39- Ben Gabbard with a four yard gain!
10:41- TOUCHDOWN NAVY! Oh m God, we're winning again. Dare I even try to suggest our defense can hold? I think I will, at least I hope they will.
10:44- Rashawn King is the freaking man.
10:49- Kettani hit the wrong hole. Look for the fake punt...
10:50- Crap. You could see that coming. Veteto should have stayed outside after cutting back, but give Pitt credit. Once again, crap.
10:52- Our linebackers might as well not have torsos. All I see are arm tackles. We must hold them to a field goal here.
10:55- Pitt, believe it or not, is getting predictable on offense. They continue to run it on second down, and just scored off of a draw. I yelled draw right as they came out of the huddle. I don't think Pitt's OC has the balls to throw it deep, so if I were Buddy Green, I'd load the box and/or fire the outside backers. But then again I ain't a real football coach so take that with a grain of salt.
11:00- Time for a New Mexico.
11:05- I don't like where this drive is going. We're going to give it back to Pitt with just enough time. I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but I think we've lost...
11:11- We need a stop here. That or let them score and go for two after we score.
11:13- Wow, Nate is getting destroyed. The whole Eric Kettani dresses well angle is getting old.
11:15- I hate football.
11:17- DRAW HERE or PLAY ACTION
11:19- Pitt's offense is pissed.
11:20- 86 seconds left. We can do it. We did it against Duke.
11:27- Here we go, the ice man.
11:28- Joey Bullen cannot be iced. He's got one more in him. I can feel it.
11:30- Well that was a freaking shame. How big was that missed field goal?
11:32- I can't believe I'm about to say this, but if Pitt wins this game it's because of Wanny. He's been coaching with a frantic desperation that has given his team the ability to come to this point in overtime.
11:36- OMG a stop!
11:37- Nate Frazier just did the dumbest thing ever. What the hell was he trying to do anyway?
11:40- Pitt scores, almost certainly the winning score. If Navy somehow manages to score on the next drive, Johnson should go for two. We need to force the issue or we're just going to die.
11:44- TOUCHDOWN NAVY- Mids back even with Pitt, but another chance to win the game and we don't get it done. How big was that penalty now?
11:49- Sack on Kaipo. Game over. I hate to say it, but dammit.
11:50- Here's what's going to happen. Pitt is going to run the ball down our through and most likely score.
11:52- Fourth and Goal. Here we go...
11:56- YES! FREAKING AMAZING! RASHAWN KING!
