Despite gaffes down stretch, Pitt pulls out win over St. Bonaventure

Pitt came into the their game against St. Bonaventure as an eight-point favorite, but the Bonnies gave the Panthers trouble all day. In crunch time, Pitt had to survive several miscues to pull out a 58-54 win. Pitt wasn't perfect in this game, but as I pointed out in writing the gamethread post, the Bonnies are a decent team. This is a team that went to the NCAAs a couple of years...

Everything Old Is New Again

Team loses two key senior players to graduation. One of the team’s best defensive players out with an injury. A redshirt junior wing player moving up from reserve to starter suspended before the season starts.  A complete decimation by a top-20 team in a pre-season classic. And now, Indiana? Oh, man, it is 2009 all over again. Only instead of Jermaine Dixon, Gil Brown and a Texas...

Paul Chryst speaks on benching of Chad Voytik

In the second half of Pitt's game against Florida International, head coach Paul Chryst made a curious move by replacing starting quarterback Chad Voytik with backup Trey Anderson. The move only lasted a series but with the Panthers up by only seven, the move made little sense to, well, just about everyone. Afterwards, Chryst spoke on his decision. Per the Trib-Review: "...

Pitt Panthers Safety Asks Teammate “What The F*ck Are You Doing?”

Pittsburgh Panthers safety Ray Vinopal was not pleased with his teammate Terrish Webb. Webb had just intercepted a pass to secure the win, but rather than take a knee and call it a day, he started to run out of the end zone before ducking under a tackler.

Pitt crushes Delaware in 62-0 win, Tyler Boyd injured in victory

In what was expected to be a comfortable win for Pitt, the Panthers made things look downright ugly with a 62-0 win over Delaware in the team's opener on Saturday. Just about everyone expected Pitt would win, some, like me, thought they could have some trouble if they weren't careful, but it's safe to say that no one could have predicted something this easy. The Panthers...

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...

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...
