    It is very easy to see why the MIAA is sitting at home today.

    Valdosta has an elite QB, elite OL and speed. I think they are very young on offense as well. Fun game to watch, minus the penalties.

    Lots of running plays with enough passing to balance out the defence. Miaa has lost this winning formula.

    I may be remembering wrongly, but it seemed VSU’s championship teams before this year were pretty senior-laden, and that’s why they weren’t a threat to repeat. Pretty clear #1 next year, and have to be the favorite to win it all.

    Yeah. They are stacked for the next couple of years.

    True enough.
    While the MIAA has slipped, it isn't dead. Remembering that quote about how, "All glory is fleeting",
    I am confident the MIAA will be nationally competitive again. Probably soon.

    That confidence does not apply to any contribution Pitt State may make.

    I don’t see Pitt being competitive in the MIAA under this coaching staff. Get used to seeing anywhere between 4-8 wins.

    What do you think an alternative coach is going to do? And who do you realistically have in mind?

    Is Pitt OK with mediocrity from their academic departments?

    From what I've seen come out of some departments, certainly.

    Education come to mind?

    That's much more worrisome than the football team, tbh.

    I mean, all departments have their own share of bad eggs in candidates. I think the Education Departments gets plenty that they just shove through the pipeline because:
    1. Kansas needs teachers. (#forceforgoodKS, as if its simply a PR issue)
    2. No one wants to inform candidates that this profession is not quite suited for their personality and skill set.

    Specifically, I have heard more complaints about the Chemistry department than almost anything else.

    I know of one department that basically has no qualified profs, yet continues to sell credit hours to be taught by people from other departments.

    That is some interesting stuff.

    I saw no MIAA team this season that has anything even approaching the speed Valdosta brought to the title game.

    I really believe, if BW can develop a little on his decision making, NW will be a legit title contender next year. O-line will be solid, perhaps even better next year. Same for D-line. Hessler and Gassmann back on defense. Receivers are solid and Strayhorn is a HH candidate IMO.

    NW having a HH contending RB would be quite the surprise, given the style of offense.

    MIAA has an Oline issue they have to improve. Valdosta has to be a favorite to repeat. Year after next when all the young MIAA QBs are juniors the conf may make some noise again
