Dear Coach Wannstedt,
I find it of the utmost importance to make you aware of an issue facing all Panther fans. These last two recruiting classes have been arguably the best back to back recruiting classes Pitt has ever had. We all understand that just because a recruiting website says a kid is a 4 star prospect does not mean he will automatically become a star. It is likely however, that with better recruiting classes, more will be expected of these kids at an earlier point in their college career. I am sure you understand where I am going with this letter. We can understand redshirting Hynoski, Aundre Wright, Buddy Jackson, and others. We also understand that the way to win is to play your best players. This is the last "freebie" week against Grambling. This week, I truly believe our 2nd team offense and defense could beat them by atleast 2 touchdowns. It is for this reason alone that I believe PAT BOSTICK and LESEAN MCCOY should be your starters and see the majority of playing time. Kevan Smith is a good quarterback in terms of a 2nd stringer and Hot-Rod will always be a serviceable Big East running back. It is imperative that Bostick and McCoy get real game experience this week so that we stand the best chance to win our tough upcoming games (MSU, UVA, Uconn, etc.). It would be foolish to start Kevan Smith and Hot Rod this week only to pull them if we are struggling against MSU. Many people do not expect us to beat MSU. I on the other hand do believe that we can and should win that game. If we do not win, which could absolutely happen, the game experience that Shady and Pat (a.k.a. the real cat basket) Bostick will gain is much more important for the 08, 09, and if they are still here 2010 seasons. Even if we do lose to MSU, Pat Bostick and LeSean McCoy can lead this team to an 8-4 record which would definately earn us a decent bowl bid and most importantly, increase our odds of winning the BE Championship in the upcoming years.
While I respect what you have accomplished as a coach, please play the men who give you the best chance of winning. Please start Pat Bostick and LeSean McCoy.
