PITTSBURGH PANTHERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Pittsburgh Panthers: Tom Savage leaves game as team wins last 3

PITTSBURGH - Beautiful autumn skies overhead it was a perfect setting for another weekend of college football. Pitt was looking for their third consecutive victory in 2013, against Virginia. For a series that started back in 1953, both teams have faced off only six times. Each season for both teams has been a mix of the good, the bad, and the ugly. Both Pitt and ...

Panthers, Cavaliers looking for momentum

Pittsburgh linebacker Todd Thomas has seen plenty of things during his three years with the Panthers. Six head coaches. A couple of miserable trips to Birmingham for a bowl game. Not exactly the kind of memories Thomas wants to hold onto. Finally, it seems, things are changing. The Panthers (2-1, 1-1 ACC) can put together their first three-game winning streak since 2010 with a...

Panthers starting to click behind Savage

Pittsburgh's offense is starting to click under second-year coach Paul Chryst. The Panthers put up 58 points and needed every one of them in a three-point victory over Duke on Saturday. Quarterback Tom Savage tied an Atlantic Coast Conference record with six touchdown passes, three to freshman wide receiver Tyler Boyd and two to senior Devin Street. Freshman running back James...

Briefly Recapping A Weird Win

Not sure how to handle this one. The offense was fantastic. The O-line gave Savage plenty of time and opened up holes for the running game. James Conner now appears to be the primary running back — even if not listed as the starter. Tom Savage had an absolutely brilliant game. Accurate throws. Looking off his receivers a lot more. Devin Street and Tyler Boyd are possibly the best...

Week Four All-Video Game Numbers Team

After each week during the college football season I usually put together an “All-Video Game Numbers Team”. It’s a fantasy formatted team (QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, DST) compiled of FBS players that just put up ridiculous stats that week, whether they’re playing Alabama or Eastern Alabama A&M. Here’s the best of Week Four. QB Tom Savage (Senior, Pittsburgh) The...

Pitt football gears up for Duke

This Saturday will see the Pitt Panthers head down Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham, North Carolina to take on the Duke Blue Devils for just their second conference game since joining the ACC.  Pitt’s offense really caught fire against New Mexico last week, and it looked like, that at least for the time being, any confidence issues that may have still been lingering after their...

More On The New Guys

A couple focus stories in the dailies today. Manasseh Garner is really happy in Pitt’s offense. Thoughtful and soft-spoken, tight end Manasseh Garner was not trying to brag Tuesday when he was asked to describe his duties in the Pitt offense. “Linebackers, cornerbacks, safeties, I feel like, personally, you line me up against anybody and I’m going to win,” he said. Strong...

Pittsburgh Panthers - Do they have college football's next superstar?

by Bo Marchionte PITTSBURGH - In order to be great first you must make great plays, there has to be that first game where you wow the crowd lift your team and bring the fans to their feet. I know a player that matches the description. Pitt Panthers true freshman Tyler Boyd. Boyd in two games has instantly become a that guy for Pitt. I've learned not to be surprised by Tyl...

Despite strong start, Devin Street being overshadowed by Tyler Boyd

Pitt senior wide receiver is perhaps the team's offensive leader. After all, he's the one that drew all of the preseason recognition and has been touted as the Panthers' go to guy. Don't tell fans that, though, as freshman Tyler Boyd has been the talk of the town. Boyd has shown his ability as an all-purpose standout. Returning kicks, on end around runs, and catching...

Pitt’s ACC Debut a Giant Disappointment

Pitt head coach Paul Chryst had no answer for the potent Florida St. offense last night. On paper, everything sounded perfect. Reschedule Pitt’s biggest opponent of the season, Florida State, to a nationally televised slot on Monday night on Labor Day.  It would serve as a perfect way to launch the Panthers into the national spotlight and show everyone that they could hang with...

Who Will Run the Ball

I honestly don’t know, and don’t think anyone will know until Pitt’s offense takes the field on Monday Night. Here’s Coach Paul Chryst’s comments on Isaac Bennett. “He did some stuff yesterday in practice. He obviously missed quite a bit of time, so it’s too early to tell if he’ll be ready. But he was able to go through some things yesterday. We’ll see how he comes...

Pitt kicker commit has ominous name

A kicker who just committed to Pitt has an ominous last name. Yeah, not the kind that instills confidence in a coach or fan base.
