Taleni Gone And Draft Thoughts

Sorry, about the absence. Some family stuff came up last week that had me in-and-out-of-town through the past week plus. Nothing major, but time was at a premium. Glad to be done with April. Fridays in April have been a month of bad news dropping. Most of it was related to basketball, but football decided to get in on the action with the dismissal of Jeremiah Taleni for disciplinary...

No Surprise, Max Browne Named Starting QB

Looking to make it to the NFL and impress scouts this year. Came nearly all the way across the country to play at Pitt. Pitt also had a good track record of transfer QBs succeeding. The quarterback...

Receiving/Defending Depth Chart Bits

Two sides of the ball. The receiving corps and secondary. Both are anchored by a senior. Both are going to be heavily reliant on youth. Lots of questions. First, a little on Pitt’s latest verbal since he happens to be a cornerback. The Cardinal Gibbons three-star cornerback committed to Pittsburgh on Monday night after stating earlier in August he was favoring Wisconsin. Before...

Less Then Impressive Opener

I’ve had a bit of time to digest this. A walk back to a friend’s house in the drizzle. A 2+ hour drive home in the drizzle/mist. A bit of bourbon while half-watching college football the rest of the evening. Getting a long, needed night of sleep. Morning pot of coffee. Prepping ribs for a nice relaxing day of smoking those suckers. Happy in the knowledge that I still get to go pick...

Predicting studs and duds for college football Week 3

College football’s second week was about measuring stick games. We realized Oklahoma is a real playoff contender. We realized Georgia should be the SEC East’s favorite, by a good margin. We realized Stanford isn’t as close to USC as we might have thought. We realized Michigan isn’t as close to playoff contention as we might have thought.For most teams, however, we still don’t really...
