Pitt Coach Drops Mind-Boggling Quote About Being ‘Undefeated’ (The Team Has Three Losses)

Videos by OutKick

Pittsburgh Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi seems to be living in a different reality than the rest of us.

Pitt plays UNC on the road Saturday, and the team is sitting at a very disappointing 4-3 record. Fans definitely are not happy with how things have shaken out.

Yet, Narduzzi apparently thinks the team is “undefeated.”

“Nobody’s beat us. We’ve beat ourselves. You can say Tennessee beat us, but I think if we’re healthy – even with our backup quarterback – I believe we win that football game. No one’s beat us. We’ve beat ourselves. I mean we’re undefeated, really. That’s how I look at it. We are and I’ll leave it at that,” Narduzzi told the press ahead of playing the Tar Heels, according to SI.com.

Pat Narduzzi has a history of making weird comments.

For the record, this isn’t the first time Pat Narduzzi has said something that makes absolutely no sense. Over the summer, he foolishly claimed the Panthers could win the Big Ten “every year.” That was comically dumb, and this comment isn’t far behind.

To be clear, the Panthers are 100% not undefeated. Pitt has losses to Tennessee, Georgia Tech and Louisville. The last two aren’t good football teams. Obviously no shame at all in losing to the Volunteers.

I *think* he attempted to drop a variation of “We didn’t lose. We just ran out of time.” However, that’s not how his comments come off.

Narduzzi just comes off as delusional.

The bad news for Pitt is a .500 record might be on the docket before the sun comes up tomorrow. North Carolina isn’t bad, and Drake Maye is an absolute dog. The Panthers will have to play a hell of a game to win. The great news is even if the Panthers lose, Narduzzi can just keep claiming the team is undefeated. Very bold. You almost have to respect it.

  1. All this tells me is that “Fail to Pitt” lucked their way to an ACC title last season *in spite* of Narduzzi. Now, with Kenny Pickett being turned into a tackling dummy for the Steelers, Pitt is back to being Pitt … a slightly above-average spare program in a spare conference.
