Pitt cornerback Pitts sets tone during spring drills

Pitt defensive coordinator Matt House called it a “pursuit drill,” with all 11 players chasing the ball carrier over 50 yards of turf. The objective: never give up, even when the task appears hopeless. During the second day of spring drills Tuesday — still without pads — rising junior cornerback Lafayette Pitts set the tone. Later, House enjoyed talking about it. “It...

Pitt's season ends with a whimper in a 41-31 loss to Miami

Pitt came out flat against Miami today and playing a clearly better team, that wasn't the way you wanted to see things start. On the way to an ugly 41-31 loss (the score wasn't really indicative of how the game went as Pitt scored a late TD in garbage), the Panthers had about as rough a beginning as you could have asked for. Lafayette Pitts, who had a horrible day all around...

Coley sparks Miami past Pittsburgh 41-31

Stacy Coley hauled in a pair of touchdown passes and zig-zagged 73 yards on an end around for another score as Miami kept its slim hopes for a spot in the ACC title game alive with a 41-31 victory over Pittsburgh on Friday. Allen Hurns caught nine passes for 173 yards for the Hurricanes (9-3, 5-3 ACC), who raced to a quick 14-point lead and had no real trouble with the Panthers...

Enigmatic Panthers keep spinning wheels

Pittsburgh coach Paul Chryst is a stickler for consistency, treating each week the same no matter the opponent. If only the Panthers' results were as easily predictable as their coach's behavior. A week after upsetting Notre Dame to move within a game of becoming bowl eligible for the sixth straight season, the Panthers saw a late comeback fall short. They lost 34-27 to...

Pitt "Pitts" their way through loss at Georgia Tech

Games like Navy are head scratchers. Games like Florida State are just flat out ugly. But games like the 21-10 loss against Georgia Tech are just really tough to take. Box Score In a nutshell, Pitt had their chances to win the game, but they just fell short. There was, of course, the fake punt which took all momentum away in the first half where Tech went on to score a touchdown...

Pittsburgh falls short of beating No. 4 Notre Dame

Pittsburgh nearly derailed No. 4 Notre Dame's hopes for a national championship. Instead, the Panthers were left with a loss that is sure to sting for a while. Ray Graham had a stellar performance, rushing for 172 yards on 24 carries and the Panthers had several chances to put the unbeaten Fighting Irish away, but just couldn't pull it off. Everett Golson scored on a quarterback...

Keeping The Orange Down

The good thoughts for Syracuse, they have played well in their small sample size of Friday night home games. That sample size is primarily last year’s beatdown on West Virginia. Getting them out to a 5-2 start before losing five straight, including the season finale versus Pitt. The bad news, they haven’t beaten Pitt since Paul Pasqualoni was still in charge. The Orange will...

For the final time as members of the Big East, the Cincinnati Bearcats and Pittsburgh Panthers meet on the field. They play for this: Not everything can be a Keg of Nails. The game is at 8pm on ESPN. If you are going, you need to leave early. Earlier than that. Parking at UC is a maddening experience under normal circumstances. UC has issued a parking advisory. If you show up at...

#43 Pittsburgh Panthers: College Football 77 in 77

Roughly Halfway Spring Practice Round-Up

There’s closer to 3 than 2 weeks of spring practices left, but Sunday was the 7th practice and there are only 15 practice days permitted for the spring. There’s going to be some more spacing between practices as scrimmages will take place and more recovery — and time for coaches to review the film — occurs. Time to catch-up after sparing some family time in between the NCAA...
