"The same storyline every week means you're not getting better"

Pittsburgh's Paul Chryst is a little tired of getting in front of the team and reporters every week with the same basic message of, "We're doing some good things, but we have to put it all together."

As Chryst explains in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, at a certain point that means that your not improving as a team.

“It is the midway point of the season. But I also think it’s a time where, you know what, they’re getting tired of me standing up...the same as you (reporters)...and saying, ‘We’re doing some good things; we have to put it together."

“You can’t have the same storyline all the time. That means you are really not getting better. The time is now where we have to get things going.”

This weekend, Pitt will look to get things going against Buffalo, and we noticed a few interesting notes on the match up. The Panthers are 28-3 all time against MAC Schools, and an impressive 20-0  in the past eleven seasons when scoring at least one defensive touchdown.

So far this season under Chryst, Pitt is 0-4 when the have failed to force a turnover during the course of a game, and 2-0 when they've been able to force multiple turnovers in a game.
