Despite Akron loss, a Virginia win would put Pitt's season back on track

After the Akron loss, I asked the question if Pitt's season was over. Of course there's a lot of football to be played, but that's the kind of game that can make you think it's difficult to win much more in a season. With two consecutive losses, things look bleak for the Panthers. A win against Virginia this week, however, would turn things around and get Pitt back...

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...

Paul Chryst could consider Trey Anderson as option over Chad Voytik

Thus far, Pitt quarterback Chad Voytik has been far from perfect. While he's passing a bit more (he has 470 total yards in the past two games), his six touchdowns to four interceptions could use some work. So is he in any danger of losing his job? According to Paul Chryst, maybe. At his weekly press conference, Chryst was asked if he might consider giving Trey Anderson some playing...

Virginia's win over Kent State proved to be anticlimactic

News came out earlier last week that the color commentator for the internetz broadcast of the Kent State game would be none other than Al Groh himself.  Not just a few UVA fans were hoping he'd say something that'd sound a lot like the same guy who read the man-in-the-glass poem as his public farewell to the program.  Some might also have been hoping for some better insight...

Ranking the Power 5 Football Conferences after week 5

The ACC was this week’s big loser part 2. The Pac 12 is starting to gain ground on the SEC, and the Big 10 is back in the playoff mix. We’ll give each conference a relative strength value 1-10. 1) SEC – 9 The SEC West is awesome. I mean it’s as good as any division in recent history. The SEC East is um well mediocre pretty much. Missouri is leading the SEC East. Missouri...

10 quick takes on the ACC after week 5

The ACC backed up a forgettable week 4 with another forgettable week 5. We assess the damage and more in this week’s 10 quick takes on the ACC. 1) Florida State won’t just be turning it on this year. Remember last season when Boston College pushed Florida State, and then Seminoles just turned on switch and became into a dominant team the rest of the year. That’s not happening...

Pitt dominated by Akron at home, lose 21-10

Pitt's loss to Akron on Saturday was a lot of things - deflating, upsetting, discouraging are words (fit for print, anyway) that come to mind. But what it also was, was the low point in Paul Chryst's tenure at Pitt. Chryst has had other points that seemed like good candidates for rock bottom status, but make no mistake about it - this is officially the worst loss in his time...

Georgia Tech Football: Fraud or For Real?

As Georgia Tech moves into a week 5 BYE, they sit a surprising 4-0, after a win at Virginia Tech. Could this be a 2011 like season when Georgia Tech started the year 6-0, and then promptly lost 5 of their last 7 games?  The big question on everyone’s mind if are they a fraud or for real? I’m a Georgia Tech alum, and I don’t even know. I’m not even sure which Georgia Tech...

Virginia vs. Kent State: Game Preview

Like UCLA before, UVA has never played Kent State.  Unlike UCLA, the Golden Flashes do not present a formidable challenge.  The Hoos have gone bowling once under Mike London, which also happens to be the only season UVA has had a winning record after five games.  That's the expectation this week, though; failure to do so wouldn't be so much a nail in the coffin -...

NC State vs FSU: Let the Season Begin!

Believe it or not, the game between the Wolfpack and the Seminoles on Saturday afternoon is the second ACC showdown game of this season.  The first was FSU/Clemson, but to hear most folks talk, this week’s game will be an FSU romp. Looking for some Wolfpack love, I went to Backing The Pack over at SB Nation. And there I found this from Akula Wolf. Like most, the esteemed Mr....

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...

ACC football is getting solid television coverage this year

For years it seemed extremely rare that the ACC had a primetime national TV game. There was always the Labor Day game, FSU\Clemson (mostly due to the Bowden Bowl storyline), maybe FSU\Miami, and maybe a couple of other primetime games. This year though there seems to quite a few more ACC teams being featured in primetime, and that’s always good for a conference trying to gain exposure...

The UNC Football Gauntlet - One Week In

Last week, we looked at North Carolina Football’s difficult four-game stretch and examined some of the statistics and intangibles they held that may or may not be good indicators of future success. While there were some bold predictions and unlikely scenarios presented, it all seemed semi-plausible until East Carolina completely dismantled the Tar Heels on the way to a 70-41 victory...
