Tino Sunseri Sounds Off About Todd Graham

Pitt quarterback Tino Sunseri's true feelings about former coach Todd Graham (who's now a villain in Pittsburgh for his abrupt departure to Arizona State) finally came out on Tuesday as he compared Graham's offense to that of new coach Paul Chryst.

"It compares from a high school offense to a pro-style college offense." ...

"Last year, there weren’t a lot of plays, there weren’t lot of different formations, there weren’t a lot of different motions," Sunseri said ...

"I feel like coach Chryst has done a great job of just going to work," he said. "You know what I mean? He’s not here to do shows. He’s not here (to hang) signs. He’s not here to make people laugh or giggle. He’s here to win football games."

Sunseri's comments are still relatively restrained, and it's hard to fault him for making them. He's become a whipping boy among Panthers fans, and he's certainly entitled to feel a little bit frustrated about that when he's had to switch offenses so many times. There's also the fact that Pitt's players in general have every right to dislike Graham, who notified them of his sudden departure by sending them a text message.
