THE WANNSTACHE LIVES

WOOF! MEOW! I CANNOT TELL A LIE!

The Wannstache likely gets one more year of cruising cool in his Camaro with the re-hiring of Steve Pederson, recently canned Nebraska AD and former Pitt Athletic Director. Pederson's first tenure at Pitt was eventful: he demolished Pitt Stadium (singlehandedly! not really!), built a new basketball arena, and oversaw one of the worst logo redos in college history:

Pederson commissioned a triangular logo of a panther that, at a distance, resembled a pit bull, or a bust of George Washington. This logo is not found on the front page of Pitt's athletic Web site and has not been used since 2005.

One horrifying quote from the article: if Wannstedt were fired, one leading candidate for the job would be HRF3242 Beta Model 4, the cyborg known as Bill Callahan.
