James Robinson: A Model of Consistency for Pitt

Point guard James Robinson isn't the most flashy player, but when it comes to winning, that isn't a bad thing. There's something to be said for consistency.  Perhaps more than anything else, that's what Pitt point guard James Robinson is best known for in some fashion or another: he consistently doesn't turn the ball over, he consistently plays hard on the defensive...

AP Poll - Louisville receives votes, will face three ranked teams

The AP Poll is out. Louisville received votes but landed outside the top 25. Three top 25, including #1 Florida State, dot the 2014 schedule. No, preseason polls, or any polls for that matter, don't matter in the brave new world of the College Football Playoff and the Selection Committee. Nevertheless, they can still provide some indication of team perception heading into the...

What will be John Swofford's legacy as ACC Commissioner?

John Swofford, the ACC’s commissioner since 1997, is in the twilight of his career. At age 65, I believe he has 5 maybe 10 years left in his tenure. Is his legacy set? How will he be remembered? One thing that should be clear, is that Swofford doesn’t make any moves without with the ACC members’ approval. That said as the recognized head of the conference, all decisions good...

NC State Football Preview

The first season in Raleigh for Dave Doeren did not exactly go the direction that he intended. Plenty of the blame lies with him, of course, but he was not handed a roster that was ready to compete in the ACC. After a strong recruiting class, a key transfer, and offseason growth, the Pack has a sense of optimism coming out of preseason camp. With transfer quarterback Jacoby Brissett...

Pitt in the Bahamas: Final Recap / Stats Rundown

This is coming a little late, but I wanted to at least provide some sort of recap from Pitt's recent trip to The Bahamas. First things first, this is merely a look into the stats in the box scores. The games weren't televised, so it's really hard to take too much away here. That said, the final box scores do make for some interesting notes. Here are some takeaways from...

North Carolina Football Preview

It would have been difficult to imagine UNC having a successful season based on the first six games of the 2013 season. A 1-5 start made the possibility of a bowl game very bleak. But that's why you keep playing the games. After the 1-5 start, the Tar Heels won five straight to become bowl eligible, ultimately finishing the season 7-6 after winning the Belk Bowl. This season...

The week that changed Major College athletics

Well there we have it, the week 8/3/2014, will be remembered as the week that changed major college athletics for better or for worse. We probably really won’t know sure for another 10 years or so.

Pitt Football: Paul Chryst talks about potential Power 5 scheduling

So this week, some pretty significant college football news dropped. The NCAA Board of Directors voted (strongly) in favor of allowing the Power 5 conferences (ACC, B1G, Big 12, PAC 12, and SEC) to have the ability to write many of their own rules. There are lots of significant things that could come from that, but one on-the-field thing is that the conferences could decide to have...
