Chad Voytik named as Pitt's starting quarterback

In the least obvious move of Pitt's training camp, head coach Paul Chryst has finally named Chad Voytik as the team's starting quarterback. Voytik beat out backup Trey Anderson for the job and will officially get the nod against Delaware in the season opener. There was never really any true suspense here. Voytik didn't play terribly well in camp, but was still a pretty...

ACCSports.com is ranking the top ACC Fantasy Players by Position

I missed this during my travel last week, but over at ACCSports.com Chris Moore is ranking the top ACC Fantasy Football players by position.  It's no surprise that Jameis Winston took the top spot in Moore's ACC Fantasy Football QB rankings.  Things get a little fuzzier after Winston though, with Marquise Williams, Anthony Boone, and Justin Thomas taking spots 2-4.

Jimbo Fisher: The ACC had the most dominant year for a conference ever

We know the ACC had a banner football season in 2013. Florida State’s National Title, Clemson’s Orange Bowl win, Duke’s resurgence, and tons of individual awards. It was a great year for the ACC, but just how good? Florida State Jimbo Fisher had some comments to say about that recently. This is from the Atlanta Journal Constitution…  “No conference has ever had as dominant...

ACC coaches talk anonymously about league opponents

Athlon has done these in the past and they've got another installment of ACC coaches talking anonymously about the other teams in the conference. That, of course, included Pitt. Coaches were still a bit tight-lipped and weren't too inflammatory, but a few did offer some interesting thoughts about the Panthers. The offensive line was the topic of a couple of coaches. Predictably...

Syracuse Football Preview

After losing head coach Doug Marrone to the NFL, many thought Syracuse would take a step back. Scott Shafer was promoted to the head job and immediately made headway with the Orange, guiding them to a 7-6 record and a win in the Texas Bowl. With returning starters at key positions, Syracuse could repeat last season's success in an improved Atlantic Division. A tough non conference...

A look at Pitt Football's crowded backfield

Paul Chryst's recruiting abilities have come into question during his time at Pitt. But it's clear that Chryst has been able to recruit two positions very well - offensive line and running back. The already deep running back group just got a bit stronger with Tuesday's commitment of 2015 four-star running back Darrin Hall. According to Rivals, Pitt landed Hall over offering...

Pitt: Jamie Dixon ALS Ice Water challenge FAIL

Big props go out to head coach Jamie Dixon and some Pitt/ex-Pitt basketball players for taking the ALS ice water bucket challenge recently. It can even be argued that the real news out of this is Dixon tweeting about it ... which isn't that often. Dixon has a grand total of six tweets this year and one retweet, and took all of 2013 off after posting sporadically in 2012 (twice...

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...

Sophomore forward Isaiah Hicks led the Heels in scoring for a second straight game and freshman Justin Jackson also posted a second consecutive double figure scoring effort. The breakdown of the scoring looked...

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...

UNC Basketball Preparing for Trip to the Bahamas

The first of two such trips in the next four months for the Tar Heels. I have no idea how they will endure. Adam Lucas at GoHeels.com has the details here. The players have returned to campus and will go through four practice sessions before heading off the the island paradise.

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...
