Mike’d Up: Pitt-North Carolina Preview, How Much Blame Should Fall on Jeff Capel for Program Issues?
With two big games on tap for Pitt football and basketball, Mike Asti and Mike Vukovcan discuss the keys to Pitt’s game with North Carolina and if it’s just simply about the defense stepping up. They also talk what the expectations should be for the mess that has become of Pitt basketball and how much blame should fall on Jeff Capel.
Mike’d Up is presented by Pittsburgh Sports Live.
If Capel isn’t to blame, especially for the roster, then who is? The inability to land any recruits is a problem, and it is squarely on the coaching staff, and the head coach specifically. If Capel isn’t to blame for not having his team ready to play mid-majors, low-majors, and military academies, then who is? If he couldn’t win with Xavier Johnson, AuDiese Toney, and Justin Champagnie, who can he win with?
