PITTSBURGH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jamie Dixon talks injuries at ACC Media Day

I wanted to get to this a little sooner, but Pitt attended the ACC basketball media day this week. As JD mentioned, the Panthers finished sixth in the preseason poll, which, realistically, seems about right. Not only is the conference expected to be better than last season, but the team will be playing this year without their top two scorers in Lamar Patterson and Talib Zanna, who...

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...

Monday Morning Quarterbacking, Vol 8

(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...

Pitt's Durand Johnson one of ESPN.com's top reserves

Pitt guard/forward Durand Johnson is ready to make his comeback to Pitt's basketball program this season. After missing most of last year with a knee-injury, Johnson is slated to return by the beginning of this season. Johnson's return is particularly good news for the Panthers in light of Cameron Wright's recent injury, expected to sideline him for approximately ten...

Pitt: No Cameron Wright, no problem

Why not having Cameron Wright in the lineup for the beginning of the season may not be as bad as you think. The Pitt basketball team suffered a devastating blow when senior guard Cameron Wright had surgery for a fractured left foot last week. The injury will leave Wright out of the lineup for at least 10 weeks as he attempts to be ready for the ACC schedule. Presuming that Wright...

Looking For Something Positive

Maybe there’s some good news from Pitt basketball. Senior guard Cameron Wright, Pitt’s leading returning scorer, had surgery Friday after breaking his left foot a week before the team’s first practice, a team source said. Wright, who broke his foot Thursday, is expected to miss 10 weeks. The Panthers’ first practice is scheduled for Friday. /sigh

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'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...

Bill Koch dropped some information this morning over at Cincinnati.com. The most relevant information is that it appears that the Pittsburgh Panthers are coming back on the schedule. Koch says that a series starting in 2023 is looking likely. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh haven’t played since the Panthers took off for the ACC.

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...
