Chapman Dismissed

Pitt officials have announced that Tra’Von Chapman has been dismissed from the program. In essence: he’s gone, never coming back. We can debate endlessly over this decision, but the call came all the way from the top: Chancellor Nordenberg. Let’s go over just the facts: Former Kent Roosevelt star quarterback and University of Pittsburgh freshman Tra’Von Chapman pled guilty...

ESPN ranks Pitt near bottom of ACC post-spring power rankings

Okay, let's be honest, here. Power rankings for football at this point are pretty useless, considering the season is about four months away. But ESPN.com ranked all of the ACC teams following spring practices and Pitt found their way near the bottom. More specifically, the Panthers came in at No. 11 out of 14 teams: 11. Pitt: It was a rough spring for the Panthers, who saw leading...

Well, You Asked For It….

Note: I didn’t write something right away because when you are getting 370+ comments on an open game thread pretty much everything has already been talked about.  Anyway, here are some of my observations…Again, and with firm success, PITT snatched defeat from the jaws of victory last week.  Travelling to the Carrier Dome in Syracuse our Panthers dropped a close, low scoring...

Scrimmage #2 – Auditions for Playing Time

Scrimmage #2  is in the books and because PITT won’t have any more scrimmages today was the last chance some players had to ‘audition’ under game conditions for a spot on the two deep.  It was evident the kids had this in mind because it was a spirited and intense day. As opposed to the 183 play run through last week in cloudy and cool conditions, the staff had the team...

Spring Game Review

So spring practices are in the books. Now the darkness of the spring and summer months fall. With little but speculative predictions, tidbits of recruiting news, filler, fluff and whatever else that can partially fill the void of Pitt football (insert joke here) until August. But before that, a recap — media-wise — of the spring game. Reed did another great job of covering spring...

Are These the Answers You Were Looking For?

On Thursday I posted an article that listed some things I felt would be interesting and important to look for during the Spring Game this year.  Here they are below in bold with a snippet of text from that article following in italics.

First Person Singular, Spring Practice 3/27: Part I

I had a chance to watch the Panthers practice today.  This is a long report on what I saw and heard so I’m going to split it into two different articles.  In this one I’ll talk about the practice in general, the offense and the offensive players. First off, let’s talk about the general atmosphere at the Southside facilities… I got down there about 45 minutes earlier than...

This Just In…

Reed is having ribeye steak, asparagus and homemade bread for dinner… Oh, and four star TE/DE J.P. Holtz committed to play his college football at PITT this evening. This is a big get for Chryst & Co. in that Holtz is a highly ranked local prospect who was targetd by DW, Graham and Chryst as a player they very much wanted on the Panthers.  He most probably will line up at...

Video: The Play That Never Happened

You cannot advance a muffed punt, which is a shame because technically this play never happened. Louisville returner Eli Rodgers was popped while fielding the punt in the 4th, and Pittsburgh’s Drew Carswell recovered as if he knew exactly how this play would unravel.  While Carswell ended up scoring rather easily, that was not to [...]
