A look at Pitt Football's crowded backfield

Paul Chryst's recruiting abilities have come into question during his time at Pitt. But it's clear that Chryst has been able to recruit two positions very well - offensive line and running back.

There's something to be said for consistency.  Perhaps more than anything else, that's what Pitt point guard James Robinson is best known for in some fashion or another: he consistently doesn't turn the ball over, he consistently plays hard on the defensive...

Cleaning Up Some Football Debris

First off, I can’t thank Reed enough for the work he’s done in August. It’s been tremendous having him writing and making the trips for practices and scrimmage. Some fantastic stuff. There’s not a lot I can add to that part. So I’m just going to clear some tabs, hit the links, and toss a few of my own thoughts in along the way. The offensive line is either going to have...

Eyes On the Defense to Start

Usually the first couple days of practice, most of the media attention is on the offense. There’s a logic to that. The practice is padless, so there isn’t any hitting or tackling. It’s a chance for skill players to really stand out. Add in when a new QB is taking the reins, the extra attention is there. Not that the offense hasn’t gotten some notice. Freshman RB Chris James...

Uchebo Coming Along, Luther Readies for Redshirt

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...
