TINO SUNSERI NEWS

Football Links Extra, 8/19

I wanted to try to stay on top of links. Last thing I wanted was to keep tabs open for weeks or months and then find myself trying to shoehorn ancient pieces into a present day post. Naturally this post was in the draft section for nearly 2 weeks before I returned to it and re-worked it to shove out today. The first day of practice revealed that Pitt has named the outside practice...

ACC coaches spoke anonymously about conference teams

Athlon did a great job finding ACC coaches to talk about all of the teams in the conference. They did so anonymously, but still - cool idea. “The quarterback, Tino Sunseri, who’s gone now, was hot and cold." … - See more at: http://athlonsports.com/college-football/acc-coaches-talk-anonymously-about-conference-foes-2013#sthash.2g1em3jy.dpuf So what did the leaders of...

Athlon ranks Pitt football at No. 52 in preseason

The closer we get to the football season starting (and yeah, we've still got quite a while to go), the more preseason rankings will find their way into the news. Athlon is in the midst of their preseason rankings and slotted the Panthers at No. 52. That's not that crazy ... in fact, it's about where I'd list the team as well. Sure, we all hope they do better, but...

Leftover Legacies and Linkage

I see there are articles and discussions on the topic of legacies with this senior class, and one player in particular. Some were probably ready to turn the page by halftime of the BBVA Bowl. Others will want to vent or defend for the next two years. The one thing of which I feel certain, is that this particular class will be most linked with (blamed on) former coach Dave Wannstedt...

Pitt Problems Continue, Lose to Ole Miss 38-17

The BBVA Compass bowl isn't the National Championship that's for sure. And the University's of Pittsburgh and Mississippi aren't Alabama and Notre Dame, that too is for sure. Both teams came in to this game treating it as if it were the Big Dance though, and Ole Miss walked away with a 38-17 victory. The Pittsburgh Panthers are no stranger to the BBVA Compass Bowl...

Pitt falls to Ole Miss 38-17 in BBVA Compass Bowl

Paul Chryst said his game plan didn't change without leading rusher Ray Graham. Graham's hamstring injury just made it much more difficult for Pittsburgh to execute that plan. A rare early interception by Tino Sunseri set up the first of three touchdown passes by Mississippi's Bo Wallace and the Rebels beat Pitt 38-17 in the BBVA Compass Bowl on Saturday. Graham, who...

BBVA Compass Bowl Preview: Ole Miss Vs. Pittsburgh

The BBVA Compass Bowl gives us a battle between two 6-6 teams; one from the Big East and one from the SEC. If you spent a lot of time watching either of these teams, you are an alumnus or you have a serious addiction to college football. Watching either of these teams play this year could have had a very bad effect on your health. Both the Panthers and the Rebels are under new leadership...

It’s been a while since I wrote anything about the football team (okay, it’s been a while since I had some time to write much of anything). So, time to hit the links.

Despite reports that he's a possible candidate for another job, Paul Chryst insists he's staying with Pittsburgh and will be on the sidelines when it...

Belated Thoughts from Rutgers-Pitt

Where to begin… I am not immune from bouts of ABT. As I watched the game on DVR delay, purposefully cut off from the internet, I listened to Beth Mowins and Joey Galloway praising Tino Sunseri in the first quarter. The same Sunseri who started 2-7 on the first four possessions and looked dreadful. Prompting me to wish that Coach Paul Chryst would snap and bench him on senior day...

Officiating, Game Plan and Going Off-Script

A few topics from the game on Saturday that were probably debated with some heat. I’ll start with the officiating since that is one of the more cut-and-dry things. I had no idea how bad the officiating was while at the game. Notre Dame still does not have a jumbotron so there are no replays. From our seats we had no angle on the phantom pass interference call on K’Wuan Williams...
