If the score sounds ugly, it must have been even uglier for Narduzzi to watch his team suffer its worst loss of the season by far.Miami (5-4, 2-3 ACC) broke a four-game losing streak by — among other things — running for 178 yards, probably breaking the heart of a coach who preaches run defense like an evangelist.

“I wanted it too bad,” said Peterman, who has been intercepted in consecutive games after going four without one. “(We will) find out where we measure up,” Narduzzi said, “and see how we compete and bounce back this week.” Jerry Di Paola is a Tribune-Review staff writer.
“I thought the corner was coming down on (Conner), and George was coming open right behind him. The guy rallied and made a play and I made a bad decision.” Narduzzi has decisions to make, too, but he didn't promise lineup changes — only more competition at practice.

All of which raises the following question: Why can't Pitt play even good defense?
Miami became the fourth team this season to throw around Pitt like a dog playing with a toy, defeating the Panthers, 51-28, on Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium.
“I made an effort in practice this week to be the vocal leader,” he said.
“At the beginning of the game, I didn't say as much as I could have said.
What makes the loss even harder to swallow is that the offense, which had been the second-most productive in the ACC at 38.1 points per game, managed only seven in the second half.
Down by 13 in the third quarter, Nathan Peterman was intercepted in the end zone by safety Rayshawn Jenkins.
Added defensive end Ejuan Price: “When teams can run the ball and throw the ball on you, that's going to be chaos.” Overall, Miami totaled 534 yards after Virginia Tech recorded 556 in the previous game and Penn State, Oklahoma State and North Carolina hit Pitt with three consecutive haymakers (406, 640 and 471) early in the season. Pitt (5-4, 2-3) failed for the second week in a row to become bowl eligible and must travel to Clemson next Saturday to face one of the nation's best teams in one of college football's toughest venues. Don't dwell on it.” If you do the math, Pitt's defense did get better in the second half, allowing 24 points and forcing five punts after Miami never punted and scored 27 before halftime.
