You're probably right...but sucking for this long makes them irrelevant in the Pittsburgh sports landscape too. Imagine how many more empty seats there would have been if hockey wasn't locked out.
From what I've gathered, PC had a meeting with the team and told them he would be honest with them about what he plans on doing. Apparently the players came away with the impression that if Wisky offers he's gone but as of now no one has contacted him. It seems like he might be down the list a bit as far as candidates.

One of the Pitt posters spilled the beans on the news...
"Hey genius .. he had a team meeting today and the vibe the players came away with is that he would be honest with them, but that if Wisconsin asks, then he is gone. He told them that nobody has contacted him, and if they did he would be honest with them. The good news for us is that I don't think Alvarez is going to contact him unless his top three options fall through. We have to hope that Alvarez lands on of those. "
Assuming the reports of him as one of their top options are true, it's only a matter of time.
I. Am. Not. A. Pitt. Fan.
You should let that sink in.
OK, then the Steeler fans I spoke to (face to face btw, not on a message board) gave me the wrong impression.
Go ahead, call me a "Pitter" because I do not irrationally hate Pitt, and use logic when deciding who I will and will not root for.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
If he said that, then Wisconsin already asked.
If you have a problem with where I'm going or what I'm saying, stop following me and put me on ignore. Pretty simple solution for all involved.
Since when did rationality and logic have anything to do with sports?
Then I would be wrong in my opinion.
I'm fine with that. Once posters stop attacking me, I'll stop defending myself.
It always has with me.
Called a 15 minute meeting, said he wasn't contacted and read the statement released by the university to the team. Wouldn't talk about the job opening. If that doesn't sound like a man halfway out the door, I don't know what does.
The pirates have drawn over 2 million exactly 4 times in 131 seasons. The years were 1990, 1991, 2001 (1st year of PNC park) and this year. Their highest attendance was 2.4 million in 2001. So to say that they sold a ton of tickets is wrong.
I think you're a good poster and you offer alot of insight on issues but you're fighting a losing battle on this one. PSU fans hate Pitt and Pitt fans hate PSU. By sticking up for Pitt it's coming off to the majority of the board as you're sleeping with the enemy. I would just move on, talk about Pitt on the Pitt board and don't stick up for them over here. Not telling you what to do but you'll save yourself alot of grief.
Alright, stop picking on Tex. it's gone on long enough...
And tex, you probably should have let this one go..
I'm like the only one who hasn't been a dick to you. That was just teasing and you know it. Relax dude, you've been touchy lately.
Cryst is on the clock. Tick tock ...
"You have to perform at a consistently higher level than others. That's the mark of a true professional." JVP
Yea, it's the age old half-truth: *I* wasn't contacted and *I* haven't spoken with them. In other words.....my agent is discussing this with them right now and as soon it gets past the preliminary talks I'm doing the talking (and leaving).
I'm taking a step back.
I'm sorry if I went too far at any point in this thread. Didn't mean to upset anybody.
Can I just say how happy I would be if Chryst left? A couple weeks back Pitt fans were delighting in which kids they could get to transfer if BOB left. Karma is worse when you have even less to lose...and could lose it...huh, Pitt?
A drinking town with a football problem.
Exactly. Why else would he say it.
I say Pitt brings back the Stache, he can start by building up that wall again. At least with the Stache they were consistent in the W-L column every year, plus they won the grandaddy of them all at the Meineke Bowl.
I have one upvote left, and I am not afraid to use it!!!
Don't think Chryst is leaving now. I read that his daughter just signed her LOI to play soccer there. Not sure what the rules are or when LOI day is for soccer, but just something I read.
@cdtguy: Barry Alvarez says it wouldn't be right if Paul Chryst leaves Pitt after one year. Says he won't hire Chryst.
Means Chryst isn't on his list, in my opinion.
If he really wanted Chryst, he would have gone after him.
