PITTSBURGH RUMORS & GOSSIP
ACC Media Days are officially underway with Tyler Boyd and Ray Vinopal addressing the media on Sunday as representatives of Pitt's football lprogram.
Earlier, I wrote about the somewhat unusual selection of Boyd serving as one of the team reps - an honor generally reserved for upperclassmen. He was, as you would expect, grateful for the opportunity.
Speaking to SB Nation...
Regardless of the ability to help Pitt, can we at least agree that the best thing in the long-term for Joseph Uchebo was coming to Pitt and getting better medical help for rehabbing his knee.
In moments like these, it’s easy to forget Uchebo is still recovering from a devastating knee injury that put his basketball career on hold for almost two years.
But then he runs up the court...
I’m sure you all know, but to repeat the news from this afternoon. Defensive End Ejuan Price has suffered a torn pectoral muscle and will require surgery. This will keep him out for the entire 2014 season. To say Price has had some issues with injuries is putting it kindly.
2012: Missed entire season with torn right pectoral muscle.
2013: Missed 7 out of 13 games with back problems...
Pittsburgh did quite well in its inaugural ACC season, beating the teams it should beat more often than not while losing to the teams it should lose to more often than not, too. All that ultimately resulted in a 7-6 record and a bowl game win over Bowling Green. There's a lot of change on this year's roster at important spots, like quarterback and defensive tackle (without...
Hard to believe the work up to football season is coming quickly. Conference media days in less than two weeks. School media days. The flurry of before the beginning of training camp articles. The insane parsing of the meaning of every padless practice. Good times coming soon.
At the ACC media days, Pitt will send Tyler Boyd and Ray Vinopal as the player reps. It’s been quite a...
The Panthers are leading in most statistical categories at the pro-am.
The second week of the Pittsburgh Basketball Club Summer Pro-Am is in the books and the averages and stats for the Pitt Panthers are:
Week one of the Pro-Am is in the books and many Pitt players looked quite impressive.
The first week of games in the Pittsburgh Basketball Club summer Pro-Amateur league is in the books. Many Panthers played and preformed admirably. Below are their week one statistics:
Talib Zanna is not going to hear his name called tonight. He will get a chance in the NBA summer league with the possibility of a free agent signing, but he is likely heading overseas.
Lamar Patterson has a shot at the end of the second round.
What do the mock drafts say?: For what it’s worth, Patterson’s stock seems to have dropped a bit by this standard. In April, NBAdraft...
The annual Pittsburgh Basketball club Pro Am games are kicking off tonight down at Montour High School. As I wrote earlier, there are some changes this year.
It's always difficult to take too many things away from the games since only a couple of Pitt players will be on any given team and they'll be playing with mostly non-teammates. Still, it's a good chance to get your...
Just when you thought the Backyard Brawl was over, West Virginia and Pittsburgh are in a battle for Alexis I DuPont (DE) running back Quadree Henderson.
Henderson, 5-foot-8 and 172 pounds has listed his Top 3 schools as Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Boston College with Pitt currently leading the pack.
After building a solid relationship with the Pittsburgh staff and wide receiver...
The Pittsburgh Panthers were once considered among the elite programs in college football, but the glory days enjoyed under the reign of Johnny Majors and Jackie Sherrill are more and...
There are dozens to choose from, but there is one play from Aaron Donald’s remarkable senior season that stands alone as his favorite. It was early in the first quarter against Duke, with the Blue Devils driving. On a second-and-10, they ran an option play in the red zone. As the guard lined up across from him pulled, Donald knifed into the backfield. Rather than make a choice...
Tony Pauline’s sources have informed him that Pittsburgh DL Aaron Donald could be draft as high as No. 6 overall by the Falcons, depending on what happens in the first five picks.
According to Pauline, that in order for this scenario to play out the quarterback prospects would need to fall out of the top-five with the offensive tackle and pass rushing prospects coming off...
Less than a month after making headlines for his transfer from Wilbraham and Monson Academy (MA) to Sacred Heat High School (CT), Mustapha Heron is back in the news again after verbally committing to Jamie Dixon and the Pittsburgh Panthers.
Currently ranked No. 17 in the TCT Top 50, Heron is a versatile point guard prospect with the size and skill to be a top ten recruit in the class...

It looks like the ACC website doesn’t have very high hopes for the Pittsburgh Panthers inaugural season in the conference next year. Monday marked the day the Panthers, the Syracuse Orange and Notre Dame officially moved from the Big East to the ACC. Notre Dame obviously only moved for every sport except football.
The Panthers went 6-7 last year in the Big East, which is now...
