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...

Pittsburgh shuts down lifeless Orange 30-7

PITTSBURGH (AP) Chad Voytik threw a pair of touchdown passes and Pittsburgh kept its bowl hopes alive with a 30-7 win over sloppy Syracuse on Saturday. Tyler Boyd caught seven passes for 126 yards, including a 49-yard catch-and-run score early in the fourth quarter to lift the Panthers (5-6, 3-4 ACC) to just their second victory in their last eight games. Pitt sophomore running...

Panthers trying to stay positive as bowl hopes dim

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh coach Paul Chryst doesn't get too high or too low, regardless of the circumstances. He's just not wired that way. It's that sense of stability that has made Chryst popular in his locker room even as the Panthers find themselves in a slide that puts their chances of making a bowl game for the seventh straight season in serious jeopardy. Pitt...

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...

2014-15 Pittsburgh Panthers Basketball Preview

A strong (16-1) start and a strong finish sandwiched a weak stretch through the middle of the ACC season for the Pitt Panthers in 2013-2014. After losing Lamar Patterson and Talib Zanna, ups and downs may occur again for Jamie Dixon's squad. Last season's secondary players will need to take the next step in their development if Dixon is to guide an 11th team to the NCAA Tournament...

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. The...

(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.

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...
