PITTSBURGH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Pitt quarterback Voytik eyeing expanded role for Panthers

PITTSBURGH (AP) Chad Voytik isn't offended by the term ''game manager,'' though the Pittsburgh quarterback might be the only one. He's cool with the label as the guy whose main job is to hand off to running back James Conner or throw to wide receiver Tyler Boyd and get the heck out of the way. Press him on it and Voytik responds by working the word ''manager'' into answers, sounding...

Coleman Brings the Class to Ten

Sorry, despite being a Sunday night I was out for offline activities and couldn’t do this last night. I won’t lie. That Therran Coleman had West Virginia, Wisconsin and Arizona State among his final five choices makes his decision to come to Pitt just a little more sweeter to me. Coleman made the announcement on local Pittsburgh TV. Not too much drama to it. Even though, Coleman...

Pitt: Conner, Boyd headline five players to watch in 2015

Pat Narduzzi brings a celebrated defensive resume to Pitt, but there's little star power on that side of the ball for the Panthers in his first season. If the program's fifth coach in five years is going to give the Panthers their second winning season since 2010, it's going to hinge heavily on two dynamic offensive players. FIVE TO WATCH IN 2015 1. James Conner, RB, Jr. Seventh...

Historical QB Recruiting – Not So Sad; Part 2

Yesterday we looked at the four of the last ten QB recruits we have landed and it wasn’t that pretty.  Today we’ll look at the last six QBs and because they are more recent, less Pat Bostick in ’07, we’ll probably remember more of what they did or failed to do for the team. Remember we are looking at recruits and not transfers or walk-ons and the scores awarded are based...
