Pitt Navy Live Blog: First Half


7:00- We're an hour away from game time and I'm an hour away from procrastinating the conclusion to this paper on ancient Chinese legalism until tomorrow morning. It seems like neither Pitt fans nor Navy fans really want to go out on a limb and say that their team will win, so it should be an interesting game, considering someone will have to win.
8:05- Apparently we run the "wishbone." Lou Holtz is a senile old man.
8:06- Mids in Alumni Hall watching the game look good. Reggie Campbell refereed to as a "small fry." Roger the Dodger in the House. Nobody cares about you Mark May.
8:10- Pitt gets the ball first. We shall see.
8:15- Well, we broke serve. Navy's defense does a good job holding and not giving up another third down. Reggie gets a flag for "running" after a fair catch. Whatever.
8:19- TOUCHDOWN NAVY! Reggie takes the toss to the house. Frankly, that drive looked incredibly too easy. I'm scared.
8:30- Damn. Pitt picks up a big fourth down after getting close on 4th and 12. We have got to do a better job on third downs. Now we're getting run all over...
8:32- Serenity freaking now. I knew that looked too easy. Here's the deal, we have to tackle. That drive should of been stopped for a field goal attempt, but because three guys cant tackle one guy, Pitt scores a touchdown. We need to respond, or we lose.
8:36- Mark May needs to stop gushing over Lesean McCoy. If you love him so much why don't you marry him there big man.
8:38- Stop showing this damn sandwich ESPN. It's annoying me.
8:41- Lou Holtz is out of control. I truly do not know what to say. Flexbone coach, it's called the flexbone.
8:47- So, are we going for it or not? Right here I think you have to kick, but then again I'm not an award winning football coach.
8:50- PAUL F. JOHNSON HAS BALLS
8:52- If this is reversed I will disown football forever.
8:55- TOUCHDOWN NAVY! Oh jeez that was the scariest pass ever...
8:55- Well, if you couldn't see that coming a mile away...
8:58- Paul Johnson just made the goofiest face.
9:00- Why is it that we can always stop the offense on the first series but can't the rest of the half?
9:06- Yea, there is holding going on...
9:12- I :heart: the inside fullback trap!
9:16- TOUCHDOWN NAVY! How about Adam Ballard and that offensive line? Hell, I think May Day may have even enjoyed that just a little bit. Seriously, this back and forth is going to happen all night. I hope you have plenty of good cholesterol, because this one could get tight.
9:22- We are not doing a good job accounting for people out of the backfield...
9:23- I tell ya, Bostick can make some throws, even though he has the slowest delivery ever...
9:26- Oh jeez, Rashawn didn't have a chance. I'd be careful to laud Bostick and the Pitt offense too much, our defense just hasn't been good. The balance of the Pitt offense is causing us a lot of problems...
9:30- What can I say? This is the game, this is likely how the second half with be, although I'd look for each defense to come up with maybe one or two stops. One thing to watch out for is the onside kick. Wanny used it coming out of the blocks against Virginia, he may gamble again. I seriously hate games like this. Key play of the first half? Bostick making that eleven yard throw on 3rd and 12...
9:34- "The future of our Naval?" Once again, Lou Holtz is out of control...
9:35- Huge field goal attempt upcoming. This actually could swing the game in Navy's favor considering what we've seen tonight.
9:38- Heads up Wanny, it's more than the pass that's getting you. Does anyone have any halftime thoughts? Anything, dare I say, witty to report?

Can ESPN please fire Lou Holtz! That guy brings absolutely nothing to the table.

It's nice to see the full back really working well for Navy. Hopefully this will keep Pitt guessing and set up a big play later in the game!

Is it just me or is there a lot of holding going on out there that isn't being called? In any case, Navy needs to start making some tackles.

It's not just you...

Come on D! Please one stop! I'd say crowd the line and the let the Freshman Pitt QB throw in the second half. He's bound to make a mistake at some point. Who knows maybe Ketric Buffin will pick on of these passes, which take about 30 seconds to get off.

Are you kidding me with that FG? That really hurt.

Yeah, Wannstadt apparently missed the fact that Adam Ballard is averaging about 10 yards a carry. No wonder he's having such trouble as a head coach.

Absolutely pathetic tackling, ... and ... When are our DB's going to stop giving PITT's receivers a 15 yard cushion every damn passing down. We are making that Bostick kid look like Dan Marino (and his arm doesn't really seem that strong???). )o:

That missed FG really hurt, ... and perhaps PJ should have called a quick pitch/play running to the left to get the ball off that right hashmark (since Bullen a right-footed kicker)??? A potential two-score lead (after Navy's turn on "O" @ the start of the 3rd quarter) squandered!!! )o:

No Nuclear Scientist needed here ----> Navy has got to continue scoring TD's every drive, ... and let's pray that they stop PITT @ least one more time.

GO NAVY!!!

wannstedt also said if they can produce 28 points, they'll win. I guess he's assuming their D is legit. the same D that gave up almost 80 points in the last two games to teams that aren't very good.
