Panthers searching for answers after 0-2 start

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Welcome to Paul Chryst's idea of "fun."

Sure, the first-year Pitt coach never imagined the Panthers would start his tenure 0-2. Or that the offense would be plagued by the same pass protection breakdowns that battered quarterback Tino Sunseri last year. Or that the young defense would spend so much time on its heels early in games.

Chryst, however, did imagine adversity. If it came sooner than he expected, that's fine. He believes the Panthers will be all the better for it.

The Panthers have little choice if they want to turn things around quickly. It won't be easy with No. 13 Virginia Tech (2-0) visiting on Saturday. A loss would drop Pitt to 0-3 for the first time since 2005.
