Seems like a great hire imo, but their fans are very Mad Online on the twitter about this.. anyone know more about this situation? There was an NDSU fan that called in to Mark Packer's show a week or so ago that explained a ...

Gragg didn’t even play in the ACCCG. They’ve gone all in on treating the TE like an extra tackle. I'm not 100% sure of this and I don't care to go back and watch the broadcast to confirm it, but there was a point either during the game when they showed the backs & receivers sitting on the bench. Gr...

I disagree. The last season with Myron Cope was a shameful exercise and I don't want to repeat the same things with Dick Groat. Also I like Hagman. He does a good job. No Groat or Hillgrove misspeak will ever top the moment the planets aligned and Cope had to say "Fakhir Brown". It came out as "F*c...

One of the fellow Pitt fans I follow on Twitter mentioned that Watch ESPN has a Skycam-only version of the ACCCG, just in case anyone wants to rage-watch and get an idea of just how many pass plays had designed routes over the middle, how much time Pickett had to throw, how many times he didn't look...

Paraphrasing here but Alan Saunders said the ACC is putting on some pressure to ensure that Pitt doesn’t drop out of Tier I. He has Pitt going to the Sun Bowl (Dec 31 vs Pac 12 team). He says it may depend on who goes to the Camping World Bowl. If Syracuse goes to CW, the Pinstripe may take Pitt. If...

Some random thoughts on Championship Eve... 1. Tomorrow is December 1. 13-9 was played on December 1. Just sayin'. 2. I really liked the Will Gipson commit the other day. Gipson was lightly-recruited to start the season. He committed to Ball State and also had offers from Miami (OH) and Toledo. He r...

Echoing the same thoughts as everyone else about the Miami game. The ND game and the subsequent run up until the Miami game salvaged some of the faith that I previously lost in Narduzzi and his ability to lead the program. It's largely a testament to the mediocrity of the program, but if we go back ...

Not for perception. And not being the blue blood program PSU is, Pitt needs all they can get. That Rose Bowl may not have been the playoff and may have been a loss, but it was an epic game where most of the country started understanding just how great Barkley was and the amazing turnaround Franklin...

Peak posted this on the PL board but I thought this bore mentioning, especially since this weekend's game is the last home game for the redshirt seniors: The current redshirt seniors were part of the class of 2014, which was the last recruiting class signed by Paul Chryst. That means next year's red...

Narduzzi said in his press conference today that V'Lique Carter has been working with the WRs, RBs and DBs. I don't think he's even listed on the depth chart at any of those spots, but the depth chart doesn't seem to mean so much. Duzz also suggested that another freshman - unnamed - will likely be ...
