Pitt 27, Rutgers 6: Rutgers post-game reaction

Justin K. Aller

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights missed an opportunity Saturday to clinch the Big East Conference title and a BCS bowl berth by losing to Pitt, 27-6. Here is some of the immediate post-game reaction:

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood:

On the focus of his team ...

"I thought we had an excellent practice week ... it didn't show up on game day," Flood said. "To me we had a focused football team, we just didn't execute."

On the fact that the team still earned part of the Big East title ...

"Silver linings to me I don't have much use for them. For us we're disappointed in how we played today. We need to play better."

Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene:

On Saturday's outcome ...

"Everybody was excited, hyped up. They just came out and beat us."

Here is a little tidbit on the Big East possibilities at this point.

"This just in, via Cincinnati sports info: "If Louisville beats Rutgers Thursday and Cincinnati beats Connecticut Saturday, there would be a four-way tie for the BIG EAST title between Cincinnati, Louisville, Rutgers and Syracuse at 5-2."
