24 in the AP

Tomorrow morning when you're sitting at your desk and drinking your coffee complaining about another Monday at least you'll be able to smile because Pitt is back in one of the polls. The AP has ranked us #24 this week. Luckily since we have a bye it looks like we won't be dropping out next week either.

The unfortunate news is that we are not ranked in the Coaches Poll. In fact there are 7 other teams who received more votes than we did in the poll. I wouldn't worry about that too much though because with the bye week some of those 1 loss teams will quickly turn into 2 loss teams and hopefully give us some separation from them.

I fully expect us to come out angry and aggressive in the Navy game. The coaches feel we need to avenge last years loss and put a hurting on Navy. The best way to do that will be to run the same game plan against them as we did against USF. Last year we did the base 4-3, didn't adjust and worried too much about the pass. Against USF we committed more to the run and it worked well. Enough about game planning, Jason and I will have plenty of stuff throughout the next two weeks to write about plus we will have a couple of special podcasts up this week and next so keep checking back!
