What the hell, Pitt?
Check out this majorly aggressive email someone in the University of Pittsburgh athletic department didn’t bother proofreading before shooting out to Panthers fans across the country.
"We want your family." Do less, Pitt Athletics 😳 pic.twitter.com/9feEt0Mmla

Terrifying, right? As a Pitt fan, know that you and your family are not safe. Pitt football wants your family, and when Pitt football wants something, Pitt football takes it (unless it’s an invitation to the Big Ten).
This is a very interesting tactic. Instead of begging fans to come watch a pretty good Pitt team play football, the athletic department has resorted to…threatening them? I mean, whatever works, right? Pitt plays at Heinz Field, and even a good Pitt team can’t drive enough people to fill an NFL stadium. Maybe, with this in mind, some families sitting at home watching the Pitt game will reconsider attending it, instead.
“We see you. We want your family.” That’s by far the boldest college football slogan I’ve seen to date. Let’s hope it scares some fans into going to some home games..
