08:13 AM ET 11.13 | In the eyes of their head coach, Paul Chryst, Pitt may have reached a new low during his tenure. [Chryst's] patience reached a breaking point Monday, as he questioned his players' effort in their 24-17 loss to Connecticut. "I thought we did have a couple (of moments) where it was less than the effort that you would want,' he said after Pitt dropped two in a row for the third time this season. You have to address that and move on, hold guys accountable and hold coaches accountable. How you address it is you have to hit it square in the face." Pitt (4-6, 1-4 Big East) is in jeopardy of a second consecutive losing season since Dave Wannstedt was fired at the end of the 2010 season.

Rather inexplicable season record for the '12 Panthers. Capable of beating a Virginia Tech, but losing to the likes of a Youngstown State. A real headscratcher.

18-22 year olds. Nuff said.

No matter how you slice it, kids cannot collectively get up to play week after week after week. Hence the scheduling of creampuffs when possible
