PITTSBURGH (AP) Paul Chryst doesn't do hype.
If Pittsburgh keeps winning, however, the unassuming third-year head coach knows the Panthers will be unable to avoid it.
It's a notion Chryst can live with. Besides, it beats the alternative. So while he is doing everything he can to downplay his team's 3-0 start heading into Saturday's game against scuffling Iowa (2-1) - even bemoaning a rushing attack that ranks fourth in the country behind sophomore James Conner - Chryst is also prepping his program for dealing with the trappings of success.
