What we're doing is unsound

Pitt head coach Todd Graham and his defensive coordinator Keith Patterson are best friends. Have been since they played and roomed together in college at East Central. Graham was the strong safety and Keith the free safety.

One day Graham walks into their room and says, "Let's go...We're going to see the defensive coordinator."

Patterson tells the story, "We sit down in the coach's office and (Todd) commences to tell him what we should be doing. It was really uncomfortable for me...."

Graham tells it a little more to the point, "I walked in there and said, 'What we're doing is unsound,' I thought Keith was going to have a heart attack..."

Jerry DiPaola of the Pittsburgh Tribune has the full story here. Great read about a true friendship and mutual respect.
