Maturing Panthers wary in opener against Delaware

PITTSBURGH (AP) Ray Vinopal can't quite find the words to describe the transformation in the Pitt program since Paul Chryst took over. And while that transformation hasn't quite made it onto the field on a consistent basis, the senior safety is confident it's on the way because of the tone set by the unassuming man with the biggest office in the building. ''The...

Is Pitt Basketball playing at the right tempo?

The Pittsburgh Panthers don't need to play faster in the new ACC. They're fitting in just fine. Is it really true that ACC teams love getting up and down the floor and play in games with a lot of possessions?  There's certainly a lot of people who assume that.  Which conference players, both past and present, truly are the embodiment of that description?  Maybe former...

Cleaning Up Some Football Debris

First off, I can’t thank Reed enough for the work he’s done in August. It’s been tremendous having him writing and making the trips for practices and scrimmage. Some fantastic stuff. There’s not a lot I can add to that part. So I’m just going to clear some tabs, hit the links, and toss a few of my own thoughts in along the way. The offensive line is either going to have...

Eyes On the Defense to Start

Usually the first couple days of practice, most of the media attention is on the offense. There’s a logic to that. The practice is padless, so there isn’t any hitting or tackling. It’s a chance for skill players to really stand out. Add in when a new QB is taking the reins, the extra attention is there. Not that the offense hasn’t gotten some notice. Freshman RB Chris James...

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

All that ultimately resulted in a 7-6 record and a bowl game win over Bowling Green.
