Which recent football transfer will have greatest impact on Badgers?

The Wisconsin Badgers of 2017 will have a few fewer spots for scholarships, as late last week the team added a pair of transfers in running back Chris James (Pittsburgh) and cornerback Nick Nelson (Hawaii). Both have a lot of familiarity with the university and the current coaching staff, making both of them a unique set of transfers. What is also unique are the opportunities available...

Pitt down another RB for Virginia Tech game

Just when you thought Pitt’s running back woes couldn’t take another hit, they have. With star James Conner already out for the season due to injury, it was learned today that his backup-turned-starter, Darrin Hall, will miss Saturday’s game against Virginia Tech due to a leg injury. Hall’s injury was reported by John Taylor of NBC Sports’ College Football Talk, and he...

Panthers settled at QB, but not in the backfield

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pat Narduzzi seems to have settled on a quarterback. The rest of the Pitt backfield is unclear. While Nate Peterman will go out with the first team on Saturday when the Panthers (2-1) open ACC play at Virginia Tech (2-2), Narduzzi isn't sure which running back will join Peterman in the huddle. Qadree Ollison, Chris James and Darrin Hall will get a chance this week...

Pitt heads to Akron searching for identity, revenge

James Conner's surgically repaired right knee will be fine. Pittsburgh hopes to say the same about its 2015 season even without its star running back, whose junior year lasted all of 20 minutes. Conner tore the MCL in his right knee in the second quarter of an opening week win over Youngstown State. Cornerback Avonte Maddox likened losing the reigning ACC Player of the Year to '...

Monday Morning Quarterbacking, Vol 8

(This is a weekly series of articles entitled “Monday Morning Quarterback”.   I will try to post them two days after the football games are played so as to have our wilder emotions under control by then.  It will be my take on the positives and the negatives we saw happen and a chance for commenters to agree or disagree and to add their own thoughts.) We met the enemy and...

Onward With Iowa

The AIRBHG (Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God) has not yet struck this year, but last year he did so to a RB that some Iowans liken to James Conner. “I’m not worried about how much he wants it as much as what we need and if he’s doing something with it,” Panthers coach Paul Chryst said last week. “I’ve worked with a lot of backs. We feel like we’ve got a pretty good...

Looking Ahead

Pitt is headed south for a matchup with the Golden Panthers of Florida International and as Chas mentioned earlier, there’s not a lot of important information to discuss. FIU is a team in rough shape; they’re one of the worst teams in FBS and have a true freshman starting at QB. To be blunt, if Pitt isn’t comfortably ahead in the 4th quarter it is cause for concern. The goals...
