The BBVA Compass Bowl/Pitt Coaching Search Drinking Game v2.0 | January


Never, ever, in our wildest dreams did we imagine that we would be able to revise and repost last year's version of the BBVA Compass Bowl/Pitt Coaching Search Drinking Game.  To do that, of course, Pitt would a) need to be going back to Birmingham, AL for the BBVA Compass Bowl, b) Todd Graham would need to be fired/resign before he completed one year on the job, and c) Pitt would need to interview many of the same people that they have interviewed at least once before.

Unfortunately with a) a 6-6 record and lack of a traveling fan base, b) Todd Graham resigning to take his "Dream Job" at Arizona State, and c) Steve Pederson, Mark Nordenberg, and co. choosing to select a now familiar replacement, we find ourselves right back here again...one year later.
