PITTSBURGH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Pitt bowl hopes still alive with win over Syracuse

Pitt needed a win on Saturday to keep its bowl hopes alive and they got it with a 30-7 drubbing of Syracuse. While I expected the Panthers to win, I figured the Orange would put up a little more of a fight. The Syracuse offense struggling wasn't a huge surprise since Syracuse has struggled mightily on that side of the ball. The Orange defense, however, was a bit easier to contend...

Pitt sluggishly beats Samford 63-56

Pitt moves to 2-0 with an uninspiring win over Samford Pitt moves to 2-0 on the young season with a 63-56 win over Samford University. The game was much closer than expected, as Pitt was a 30 point favorite going into this one.  The Panthers rode the back of Michael Young's 20 point performance.  The sophomore forward shot 10-13 from the field and also added 5 rebounds.  Jamel...

In college, field goals aren't a sure thing

Whenever an NFL kicker attempts a field goal from inside 50 yards these days, success seems inevitable. That isn't the case in college. Just two weeks ago, Duke beat Pittsburgh 51-48 in overtime after Chris Blewitt missed a 26-yard field goal that would have won the game for the Panthers. On that same day, Utah's Andy Phillips missed a 37-yard attempt in overtime as the Utes...

Pittsburgh OT TJ Clemmings One to Watch, and Other ACC scouting notes

The story of the game, from a fan point of view, will be the video game type start that you’ll see in the box score.  Pittsburgh came out and gave up five (yes FIVE) fumbles on their first five possessions all leading to points for Georgia Tech.  What’s more, Pittsburgh proved that they couldn’t stop the triple option attack in which Georgia Tech brings to the table.

(This is a weekly series of articles entitled “Monday Morning Quarterback”.   I will try to post them two days after the football games are played so as to have our wilder emotions under control by then.  It will be my take on the positives and the negatives we saw happen and a chance for commenters to agree or disagree and to add their own thoughts.)

Discipline and Consistency are the Watchwords

At least, they are the narrative at this time. The consistency theme is for Pitt’s performance from game to game. Dave Durham is ready to get off the treadmill. Pittsburgh wins a big game and loses the next. The Panthers falter one week only to come roaring back seven days later. It’s a pattern that’s plagued the program for years as the seasons hovering around .500 have piled...

Onward With Iowa

The AIRBHG (Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God) has not yet struck this year, but last year he did so to a RB that some Iowans liken to James Conner. “I’m not worried about how much he wants it as much as what we need and if he’s doing something with it,” Panthers coach Paul Chryst said last week. “I’ve worked with a lot of backs. We feel like we’ve got a pretty good...

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 RB James Conner ranks second in the nation in rushing

Pitt's James Conner is having a heck of a season so far. Despite being used sparingly in the Panthers' opener against Delaware, the Pitt running back is among the nation's best in rushing yardage. Conner has 367 rushing yards through two games and ranks second in all of the FBS. His 367 yards are behind only UTEP running back Aaron Jones and his five rushing touchdowns...

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...

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. Vinopal ran over to his teammate and […] The post Pitt Panthers Safety Asks Teammate “What The F*ck Are You Doing?” appeared...

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.

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...

The Pitt panthers had been struggling well into the second quarter to stop Miami’s big play scores. While mounting a sustained drive and down 24-7, Pitt quarterback Tom Savage completed a pass to wide receiver Kevin Weatherspoon on a crossing pattern that was good for 13 yds. and a first down at the Miami 38 yd line. As Weatherspoon was tackled from behind, the Hurricane player...
