Pitt QB Slovis Tip-Toes Around Comments Made Earlier in the Week about WVU

Published

Pitt senior quarterback Kedon Slovis tip-toed around comments he made earlier this week about West Virginia, prior to the Backyard Brawl Thursday night.

Slovis chose to rile up the mainly Pitt student body crowd at the bonfire rally Tuesday night. He said, “I got one more thing to say, F**k West Virginia.”

Slovis chose to address that comment during the press conference after the 38-31 win in the rivalry game Thursday night.

“You know I don’t mean any disrespect to the other team,” Slovis said. “Just trying to get the fans rallied up. It’s an exciting rivalry. They say their stuff about us too, so just trying to beef the rivalry a little bit. It’s all respect for those guys. JT [Daniels] is a great player. I got to talk to him after the game the coaching staff with me at USC. So a lot of respect to those guys.”

In his first Backyard Brawl and first game as starting quarterback for the Panthers, Slovis completed 16 of his 24 passes for 308 passing yards and one touchdown.

There are times in the game where Slovis struggled, as the Mountaineers sacked him five times and he couldn’t find his receiver quick enough.

Still, Slovis tied the game late in the fourth quarter, as he led his team on a seven play, 92 yard drive that culminated in a pass to junior running back Israel Abanikanda, who took it all the way for a 24-yard touchdown to tie the game at 31.

Also, a win in the Backyard Brawl, the first one played since 2011 and the first Pitt win against WVU since 2008, doesn’t hurt to earn in your first start in your new program as signal caller.

Agreed, been a season ticket holder for about a dozen years and those were the most obnoxious fans I’ve ever seen. Three hours of “Eat Shit Pitt”…bunch of a-holes.

Now you understand why I want them erased from future games opportunities . They don’t deserve to play Pitt.

Also, during the ESPN broadcast, the cameraman linger on two WV supporters wearing eat s**t Pitt tees. This is the first game I refused to attend in half a century because of their fans. F**k Scott Barnes for scheduling it.

I don’t think he tiptoed around the comment at all. I thought he addressed it head on. Truth is, it’s not really a big deal.
