Postgame Reaction from Pitt Locker Room: ‘Miscommunication,’ Mistakes Haunt Panthers



PITTSBURGH — Kenny Pickett has led Pitt to many heights in his four-year career, but after a big mistake late in the game on Saturday, his teammates couldn’t pick him up.

Pickett was intercepted twice while setting a Pitt record for passing yards and throwing three touchdowns, but the second came at a critical moment late in Saturday’s loss to the Hurricanes.

The play was a pass to Jordan Addison, who didn’t look ready for the ball, and instead it went into the arms of a Miami safety.

“I think it was a miscommunication,” Addison said. “I feel like I could’ve turned my head earlier to see the ball.”

“It’s something I’ll have to go watch with Jordan and fix,” Pickett said.

The Panthers sure would have liked to have picked up their senior leader and get the ball back in his hands, but the defense was unable to come through with a stop at the end of the game.

“Turnovers are going to happen. It’s inevitable,” senior outside linebacker John Petrishen said. “We can’t get upset when those things do happen. We expect greatness from Kenny and most of the time, we get that. He was great today again. We would like to get the ball back in his hands at the end of the game. We felt like the game fell on the defense at the end of the day.”

Pitt was not prepared. Pitt crapped themselves.

It’s over. The coaches let the players down, the fans, and this community. See Pitt keeps talking that their goals are still in front of them. The goal for every team should be a national championship. That’s it. Your in Pittsburgh that’s the type of level of success this city expects. Nobody cares about some random bowl participation medal game. It’s playoff or bust for every team. And this team did not rise to the occasion and chose bust.

They let the community down? Wow! Lighten up Francis. Pitt’s goal is an ACC championship which is still in front of them. They were not winning a National championship so yes, their goals are still in front of them.
