Pitt Football: I'm Just Sayin..

Will DunnCorrespondent IDecember 5, 2007

IconThe future of the University of Pittsburgh's football program was decided this past weekend—and that future will be with this year's true freshman Pat Bostick starting at quarterback.

Following an injury to starter Bill Stull and the subsequent poor play of redshirt freshman Kevan Smith, it appears that coach Dave Wannstedt may be looking in this direction.

Wannestedt considered placing Bostick in the game for the second half of last Saturday's contest at Michigan State, but decided against throwing a true freshman quarterback into a game on the road.

What Wannestedt and anyone watching learned is that Kevan Smith is not the future of Pitt football. His struggles were understandable in the first half of his first collegiate road game. But in the second half, the leader Pitt wants at quarterback was clearly not Kevan Smith.

Pitt's defense stopped the Spartans all day and Lesean McCoy was running all over Spartans. With any quarterback thats going to take you to higher levels, you need to win that game.

It's unnacceptable that they did not.

Wannestedt found what hes going to get out of Kevan Smith, its time to learn what he's got in Pat Bostick.
