Well, that logic presupposes that if a coach hasn't won a BCS-level conference championship yet he isn't capable of doing it, which obviously isn't correct. Every proven coach was once an unproven one.
But yeah, if Pitt sold the fans that they were going to bring in someone who had already done what they were axing Wannstedt for not doing, then they failed badly.
