PITTSBURGH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Panthers looking to toughen up for brutal stretch

PITTSBURGH (AP) Michael Young isn't a numbers cruncher. The Pittsburgh sophomore center admits he didn't even understand what the Ratings Percentage Index was until given a crash-course in the formula recently. What Young does understand, however, is simple addition. The more victories, the less math required by the NCAA tournament selection committee when it considers Pitt in March...

Pitt: Stopping Jahlil Okafor a (nearly) impossible task

Pitt faces Duke tonight and, without a doubt, the Panthers' biggest issue on defense is finding a way to limit center 6'11" freshman center Jahlil Okafor. One immediate issue is Okafor's bulk. We all know his 6'11" height can cause problems, but he's just bigger than Pitt's big men at 270 pounds. Pitt's tallest player, Joseph Uchebo, is 6'11" (or 6'10", depending on where you look...

Pitt effort, not talent/youth most problematic for Panthers' basketball team

Pitt's most recent basketball loss came to Clemson this week. While the game was disappointing, I've tried to point out the team's youth as being a problem. That, of course, is true. The Panthers are regularly playing two upperclassmen and only one senior. In addition, that senior, Cameron Wright, missed much of the season recovering from an injury. Pitt has been forced to play mostly...

Pittsburgh has fired Athletic Director Steve Pederson

The Pittsburgh Panthers have seen this happen to them before. I wrote last week that there were reports that Paul Chryst had accepted the head coach position at Wisconsin Well Wednesday, Wisconsin made it official and now Pittsburgh is looking for their fourth head coach since Dave Wannstedt was let go after the 2010 season. But this time around they will have a new Athletic...

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 are tied with...

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...

Pittsburgh and Kentucky Series in the Works, Keg of Nails Remains Dormant

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. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh play for this ugly ass trophy...

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...

Randall May Be Weaving Out of Pitt

Even though Derrick Randall didn’t contribute an overwhelming amount during the conference portion of the season, I did expect that Randall would be a nice cog for 2014-15. If, for no other reason, the lack of experienced depth in the frontcourt. Especially as far as true centers go. The Rutgers transfer had noticeably slimmed down and gotten into very good shape by the end of...

Pittsburgh DL Aaron Donald Could Go As High As No. 6 Overall?

  Tony Pauline’s sources have informed him that Pittsburgh DL Aaron Donald could be draft as high as No. 6 overall by the Falcons, depending on what happens in the first five picks. According to Pauline, that in order for this scenario to play out the quarterback prospects would need to fall out of the top-five with the offensive tackle and pass rushing prospects coming off...

The 6-foot-6 Johnson was injured while driving to the basket with 5:30 remaining in Pittsburgh's 80-65 victory. He was fouled on the play and made two free throws before leaving.

Young Panthers off to hot start in ACC

Durand Johnson caught the ball on the wing and rather than take an open shot, decided to dribble to the top of the key. When a Maryland defender closed in, the freewheeling Pittsburgh sophomore swingman threw up a contested 3-pointer that splashed through the net. Rather than peek over his shoulder at Jamie Dixon to see if he'd violated one of the coach's rules about shot selection...
