OT: Narduzzi guarantees Pitt will win the ACC in the "near future"

Then again, this is the same guy that guaranteed his team wouldn't have any false starts in Lane

It may happen at some point in the next 50 years...

That's puzzling.

But someone from the Coastal is going to have to take the title away from Clemson.

I'm hoping it's going to be VT.

If you can't handle my shit posts, you don't deserve my memes

Username checks out.

Step 1: Do not lose 28-0 on the road to an inter-division rival.

Step 2: Do not make a foolish guarantee to not commit false starts on the road in an environment where the fans will be glad to challenge you on said guarantee.

Step 3: Lay off the funny pipe. It's making you sound foolish.

Edited step 1.

What about 28-0?

My post has been corrected, thanks.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Pat seems to think he has some dirt on Dabo to go with his salt.
Only way Clemson isn't winning the ACC in the next few years is if the program has a scandal.

What a fucking clown.

If it happens it will be after he's fired from Pitt

This is good! Haha

Piss on you, Pat

15 yard penalty, and now you're gonna shank the extra point

Narduzzi has gotten a little too bold with these """guarantees""" ever since he called the upset against Miami a couple of years ago during his halftime interview.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Fuck Pat Narduzzi

I mean, sure. Why not? Elon Musk said we'll land on Mars "soon". Wonder which thing will happen first?

We put the K in Kwality

I'd put just about everything I own on Elon Musk/us landing on Mars first.

Didn't he just make it everybody's mission to crush Pitt?

Sadly, no.

We've seen that every team can get to the ACC Championship game.

You want to crush the hopes of these teams, you have to dominate all of them. Like Clemson does.

Right, but none of the other coaches are walking around proclaiming that they're going to win the championship. I mean, it's the goal of every team, but none of the other coaches smoke enough crack to go out and say they WILL win it. Just seems to give every team that extra fuel to want to beat them, so they, too, will begin the chant, "Fuck Narduzzi!"

Oh, don't get me wrong.

Nardouchy is just being a Nardouchy.

Yall can joke all you want but these promises are a big boost on the recruiting trail in NCAA Football 11.

Our ACC Championship Trophy case isn't empty though.

As an aside, this might be my favorite Pat Nardouchey picture if only because he looks like such a creeper.

He just looks like Patt Narduzzi in that picture

such a creeper.

I wish Fuente would say stuff like this.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Why? It's just fodder for the fanbase to use against you. I hope he thinks stuff like that and says it to the team. I would not want him to say it aloud right now.

Exactly, if you want to motivate your team, say it to them. Saying it to the media is just a sad cry for attention.

If Pitt had a good offense they'd very much be a threat. That defense is pretty close to elite.

This year.

They've had the opposite recently as well. I don't recall them having both under Narduzzi.

Is he implying that when he has some secret angling skills and when he gets fired he's going to go coach the Pitt bass fishing club?

Someone recently talked to him about saltwater fishing and so he assumed he would be incredible at it...

I still dislike Bronco more

Hokie Club member since 2017

I disagree. This is one of the most graceous opening statements regarding our football team.
After beating us he thanks us for the standard we set at VT as on example to his team and players.
Pat is a jerk. You would never hear anything like that from him
your statement might be hate bc he is at UVA, and i totally get that, but versus Pat, I need to defend Bronco a bit. Pat is the worst.

Okay well we will have to agree to disagree. I'd rather watch any other coach celebrate then him. Doesn't make Pat any less of a jerk...

Hokie Club member since 2017

I dislike him because of the team he coaches for, and I laugh at some of his methods, but those are the only two reasons he's anywhere on my list of most disliked coaches.

I didn't realize I'd get so much pushback for talking trash about him on a VT message board sheesh. Why doesn't TKP knight him and make him a saint already

Hokie Club member since 2017

It really doesn't cost him anything to say this. He was vague about the timeline so he can't really fail to deliver, and if he isn't challenging for ACC titles in a few years, he's probably gone anyway. Not to mention he can always blame lack of success on factors outside his control if someone calls him out on it.

Y'all cracking on Pat, but it takes balls to admit you won't be the head coach in a few years.

If you play it, they will win.

They'll have to go through UVA for that. Not easy. Hoos are back now remember

Boooo! Add the sarcasm!

I'm assuming the hoos (vomits in mouth a little) came and went with a QB named Perkins!

Lots of factors came together for that Hoo win; Farley being out, defensive breakdowns early in the game, VT gameplan (offensive and defensive) kinda meh, a 50 yd Hoo FG, a loud Lane North (who would have expected that) and some offensive line screw-ups with the game on the line. VT had their chances and didn't capitalize, while the Hoos did (and not too many here expected that.)

Realize that even a blind squirrel finds a nut every 15 yrs or so...

I get all that, just my anti-Virginia nature shining through is all. I do honestly wonder how good their team will be next year if they don't have a QB that can perform as well as Perkins.

I believe you mean once every 16 years or so.

In NCAA 14? Cause I just did that twice this week, not really impressive.

Meh...

"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"

I can guarantee you that Pat Narduzzi likes to roll through the Burger King Drive Throughs and order a cheeseburger and blowjob for shits and giggles. He will have more success getting this wish fulfilled then winning an ACC Championship in the near future.

If there is no enemy within the enemy outside can do us no harm.

and then he gives the girl at the window this look:

The word "obtuse" comes to mind when reading that.

Maybe we should call him Pat Obtuzzi.

Former Clemson players also came forward today concerning Dabo and the alleged racism inside the program.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

This isn't surprising he made these same kind of comments when Kappernick was kneeling.

Not that I want to defend Narduzzi, but the word "thug" has only been a racist term since the media labeled it as such a few years ago.

Ehh, I'd say it was less about labeling it and more about just pointing out what it had become. That is, the word that had become commonly used by people who knew they would get a lot of backlash for using the word they really wanted to use.

Not to say that this was at all exclusively used in that way, but over the last 10-15 years, its absolutely become that word in the era of social media to the point where its just best to not use it at all.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Agree with this. "Thug" has long been used as what one might consider coded racist language.

Interesting. My own first mental picture for the word is Mafioso muscle. So, Sicilian, I suppose?

I've also heard the phrase "jackbooted government thugs" more than a few times. More about vocation than ethnicity.

Of course the phrase "Thug Life" has particular connotations, but I've never considered the word "thug" by itself to be racially charged. Live and learn, I suppose. One more word to avoid because it's no longer kosher.

Just covering all the bases, huh?

I get that a lot of people are going to agree with you. Maybe because they're younger than me. Because that's what the media has said. Which was my point.

It used to just mean a brute, and had nothing to do with race.

I was curious about this, and did some digging. I found this:

The Racially Charged Meaning Behind The Word 'Thug'

Different meanings for different folks. Go figure. For me, I guess it's another word I shouldn't use, because people will certainly understand it differently from how I would mean it.

Newspeak

FWIW:
NPR: The Racially Charged Meaning Behind The Word 'Thug'

Article from 2015 when Obama recanted and apologized for the use of the word "thug" to describe looters. Describes the history and connotation of the term.

Edit: I'm an idiot and should read further down to your comment before I comment. I am always quoting NPR, so it's no surprise that you found the same article.

Please ignore me.
