PITTSBURGH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jamie Dixon, Don’t Quit Your Day Job!

Pittsburgh Panthers head men’s basketball coach Jamie Dixon is great at many things, coaching being one of them. Dancing, however, is a different story.

Told You So… Here Comes the Pitch.

Narduzzi to let AD decide whether to revive Backyard Brawl

Like many Pittsburgh Panthers and West Virginia Mountaineers fans, Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi grew up being fond of one of the fiercest rivalries in college football, the Backyard Brawl.

In-Between #14 and Other Notes

Pitt Spring Practice #14;  April 16, 2015 It seems a bit like a broken record but the fact that after each practice Mike Caprara figures prominently in the discussion is pretty surprising.  At this time last April he wasn’t on anyone’s radar for playing time at all let alone being a starter.  Let’s keep an eye on him and Bradley and see if we get any hints as to what we’ll...

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.
