Pitt's Tyler Boyd Quietly Becoming One of the Best Wide Receivers in the Nation

It's been awhile since the Pitt Panthers have gotten a lot of national attention. They were a bowl team each of the last three seasons (six actually), but in each of those seasons they finished 7-6. 6-7, and 6-7. So it's understandable if they are not on the national radar just yet.That's kind of shame because football fans are missing out on watching one of the best wide receivers...

ACC Countdown: No. 8 Pittsburgh

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...

Randall May Be Weaving Out of Pitt

Even though Derrick Randall didn’t contribute an overwhelming amount during the conference portion of the season, I did expect that Randall would be a nice cog for 2014-15. If, for no other reason, the lack of experienced depth in the frontcourt. Especially as far as true centers go. The Rutgers transfer had noticeably slimmed down and gotten into very good shape by the end of...

Young Panthers off to hot start in ACC

Durand Johnson caught the ball on the wing and rather than take an open shot, decided to dribble to the top of the key. When a Maryland defender closed in, the freewheeling Pittsburgh sophomore swingman threw up a contested 3-pointer that splashed through the net. Rather than peek over his shoulder at Jamie Dixon to see if he'd violated one of the coach's rules about shot selection...
