PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh coach Paul Chryst doesn't get too high or too low, regardless of the circumstances. He's just not wired that way.
It's that sense of stability that has made Chryst popular in his locker room even as the Panthers find themselves in a slide that puts their chances of making a bowl game for the seventh straight season in serious jeopardy.
Pitt (4-6, 2-4 ACC) needs to win each of its final two games to become bowl eligible following a 40-35 loss to North Carolina on Saturday. The Panthers have dropped six of seven following a 3-0 start, with four of the defeats coming by less than a touchdown.
