I watched game from a bar - it's funny to come back and read comments and compare to the texts I send to friends and then how you feel a couple days later.
Some In Game Texts
During 1st QT : Wisconsin will run for 400 yards against us
On the D 1st QT: Not sure if Brent Pry is the guy. We should play all freshman
By the 4th QT : That was the most dominant half of football I've seen D play in years
1st Half : These refs should be reviewed and should be suspended for a week (I still maintain they were awful)
2nd Half : I guess App State is better than Pitt
Last Score : That was a big FU to Narduzzi
The best part of the night was the PSU haters in bar getting STFUed during the 2nd half. I'm fine if someone doesn't like PSU. I'm fine if you like Pitt. I just can't stand people who hate on a team just because half the bar is rooting for them. I had the misfortune of sitting next to a 24/7/365 hater who was hating anything anyone liked including PSU and deeming McSorley a "trash" QB. Guy walks in the bar next day for NFL games wearing a Dolphins Tannehill jersey - are you kidding me?
Overall couldn't be much happier - only carp might be some dropped passes by Johnson / Thompkins. Would like to give props to Gilliken - the kid has been solid as can be for 3 years and him pinning Pitt deep time after time was a big factor IMO - just contrast him to the night the Pitt punter had.
We beat Pitt senseless in their stadium, emptied it and shut that troll Narduzzi up for at least one night. That's way better than standing in front of the TV screen with butt cheeks clenched hoping you can hold of App State in OT.
