"Little Caesars Bowl- at least watch for the best D player in the country"


  

          

I've been trying to talk about Aaron Donald but nobody would listen all year, the guy put up numbers better than Suh's at DT and threatened the TFL record which is almost unheard of for a DT.

Swept every Defensive award and was unanimous All American.

In case you want a reason to watch this game, there is one.

Connor is running all over the D and Boyd has a few spectacular catches already.

Both trues freshmen who give me some hope going forward.

But yea he should have been ejected, some how it was called offsetting penalties and the TD stood despite happening during the return.

Although, it's kind of a fitting ending for the year for him since dude has taken an absolute beating all season behind this line. Still, sucks to go out on an injury.

Also, pretty bummed Street didn't get to suit up once more for Pitt. He's been a solid receiver at Pitt.

Boyd already most receiving yards in a bowl game, Conner not far from most rushing yards, all with a redshirt Freshman QB leading the 2nd half.

This is a nice end to the season and look ahead for Pitt even if we don't wind up winning this game.

Yeah, it's been really fun to watch. It's almost the exact opposite feeling I had while watching every fucking snap of that 3-0 Sun Bowl loss.

That was a lot more exciting than I was expecting. Kudos to Bowling Green for a fun one.

I don't know the last time I was this excited about the future of Pitt football, but they've got some really good young talent.

The big goal was to get him and Robert Foster and have 2 of the best WR recruits in the country. Hell we had Bobby Engram recruiting him

I followed his recruiting very close being local and don't ever remember a day that he was not a WR target.

Connor yea, Chryst has still flirted with the idea of putting him at DE. Also have to remember we expected to have Shell and there wasn't really a need for Connor at RB when he was first being recruited.

Suh played in a better league and put forth dominant games when the pressure was highest on the biggest stage

that NU offense was 112th in the nation that year

Furthermore, I don't see a huge difference even discounting games played

In response to Reply # 31
Fri Dec-27-13 09:35 AM by Y2Flound

  

          

2.21 to 1.46 TFL per game

.83 to .86 sacks per game (virtually even)

More fumbles caused in 2 less games, and identical QB hurries per game

Suh was a top 5 pick, Donald will probably be a 2nd round pick, I'm not saying Donald is better, but the numbers are almost identical, only difference is Pitt vs Nebraska. Donald deserved more Heisman love (not to win it, but to be talked about more) a DT can't be held responsible for a team being 6-6.

If you don't think Donald also captained a bad defense otherwise and is on a team with a bad offense then you just didn't watch Pitt. As far as competition or whatever else, the ACC may not be the best conference of all time this year, but they are still good enough competition that the numbers are very impressive.

*Edit- Even though it wasn't a big game nationally, he blocked an extra point in a 1 point low scoring win at Syracuse that we had to win to make a bowl. That is the stuff great players do no matter how giant the stage.

36. "Not really"
In response to Reply # 32


  

          

I think Donald is a great player but I could cherry pick and say Suh had way more tackles 3 blocked kicks and an INT

Donald doesn't have the once a decade domination that Suh foisted up on #2 Texas in a national benchmark game

Again, I think he is outstanding, I just read the numbers comparison and saying Donald had "better numbers" as Pitt couching him in at Suh's level

I don't see it.

Furthermore 2009 Nebraska's schedule is better than 2013 Pittsburgh IMO and plays a role.

Not necessarily a beating. Ohio, BGSU were competitive. N. Illinois kept it close (I didn't watch that one) but Buffalo got smoked.

Connor is a beast. That cat ran all over the Falcons, all night long. BG had nothing going on the ground. I would have liked to see Matt Johnson run it a few times. I think he's gonna be a pretty good QB at BG for a couple of years.

My girl is a BG alum so I had an interest in this one too. She was all decked out and hyped for the game. She was salty as hell last night when we left BW3s.
