While Bob Stitt had already captured the respect and attention of offensive coordinators across the NFL and FBS level with his innovative offensive mind, there were still a large number of skeptics who thought that his offense was too gimmicky to succeed at the Division I level. Three days ago he got his first chance at the FCS level as he led his 12th ranked Montana team on the field for the first time against FCS powerhouse North Dakota State.
One of the more vocal doubters was actually NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt, who took to Twitter before the game to offer his take on the opening game of the college football season.
Needless to say, Brandt was quite a bit off with that prediction, and Stitt led the Montana program to a 38-35 upset of the four-time defending national champion Bison. The Griz scored on the last play of the game out of the old Power I formation with a play as old as football itself.
And of course, Stitt was sure to remind Brandt of how it all played out.
Next time you want to doubt coach Stitt and his Montana squad on social media, you can bet he's got his eye on you.
