Pitt crushes Delaware in 62-0 win, Tyler Boyd injured in victory

In what was expected to be a comfortable win for Pitt, the Panthers made things look downright ugly with a 62-0 win over Delaware in the team's opener on Saturday. Just about everyone expected Pitt would win, some, like me, thought they could have some trouble if they weren't careful, but it's safe to say that no one could have predicted something this easy. The Panthers...

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...

Pitt's Durand Johnson working on game and rehab

Durand Johnson is fighting his way back in hopes of being ready to start the season with the Panthers in November. Johnson is on track to do just that and when he gets back on the court, he wants to be more than just an outside shooter: "Last year, before I went down, I was trying to mix up my game, not just be a spot-up shooter and get out in transition, but also take guys...

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.

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...
