I realize Dave Wannstedts was coaching college football... but it was announced Dave Wannstedt had resigned after 6 years of typical Wannstedt football (not quite delivering on the promises that were made, but lots of awesome moustache jokes and fun for the fans).
It's strange, but what started out of hatred for the Moustache has transformed into love. I love the Moustache. It makes me laugh. But really, I laugh at Wannstedt because I think he's incompetent. I think Pitt made me really enjoy the Moustache's antics. I still will never forget how happy he was when Pitt shocked the world and beat West Virginia and prevented W. Va. from going to the National Championship game. I hope the Moustache finds a new gig... just not with one of the teams I'm rooting for!
On to the games.... there are lot of bad ones
