WVU's Dana Holgorsen stops just shy of dropping an 'Eat s--- Pitt'

As much as we're all enjoying this back and forth, an actual game would be better.

The Backyard Brawl between West Virginia and Pitt was one of the most intense rivalries in college football before it became a realignment casualty. But like the similarly situated Texas and Texas A&M, the two sides sure seem to enjoy doing a little bit of talking about whether the game should be put back on the schedule.

The latest salvo came on Tuesday, when Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi responded to WVU's Dana Holgorsen saying the Mountaineers are "begging 'em" to play the game again.

Nice. A double helping of condescension. But that did not go unanswered for long.

Sweet Caroline? Like the song? Yeah buddy, like the song, but a touch different than the way Neil Diamond wrote it. Skip to the 20-second mark, if you'd like.

It doesn't matter who backed out of what. I don't care. Play the damn game.
