PITTSBURGH RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

Pitt vs. Akron: Running game likely to be Zips' downfall against Panthers

I touched on this a bit in the opening preview on Monday, but the more you look at it, the more it seems like the running game will be key for Pitt in their game against Akron on Saturday. The Panthers have one of the best rushing attacks in the nation, so we know what they're going to be doing. The ball is going to James Conner and other than getting quarterback Chad Voytik...

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 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.
