The tricky part is making sure that confidence doesn’t morph into overconfidence. Too late, apparently. Several Pittsburgh players admitted they took Navy lightly before a 24-21 loss to the Midshipmen on Saturday, telling reporters they figured the Panthers would pull away for a victory. Instead, Pitt (4-3) collapsed as Navy scored 10 points in the final 4 minutes, including the game-winning field goal as time expired. Though Chryst didn’t get the sense his players were overlooking the Midshipmen, if they did he has no doubt on who to blame. “That’s on me,” Chryst said. “I’ve got to do a better job.”
