This guy sometimes has some good insights, but the majority of the time is the most miserable, self-loathing Pitt fan you could possibly conjure up. I dont know why I go to his site sometimes, so mark this down as me hate-reading him: https://pittpov.com/2018/10/15/povs-mmqb-pitt-loss-to-nd-2018/ W...

Pomp posted a clip on Twitter of the bullsh!t pass interference call on Jackson that helped continue the ND drive that resulted in their go-ahead TD. Someone replied that the back judge that threw that flag - Gary Dancewicz - is the exact same official that threw the flag on the K’Waun Williams phan...

Peak says "the official word on Sear is that he's taking a leave from the team for personal reasons. His return is unknown." Peak added that his return seems unlikely. Sear did not have a terribly good game on Saturday and I'm not sure how much of the lack of TE usage this year is "Watson sucks" or ...

I just noticed it has a completely different showrunner. I hadn't realized they made this change, but this could be good for the show. Gimple came off a pretentious, self-important prick and while he's apparently now in charge of the creative direction of the Walking Dead properties, at least he's ...

Nope. I might binge it to see how Rick dies, but I couldn't be less interested. They were hyping the absolute hell out of it on social media last week and especially this weekend.

Very happy with the win and also very happy with the fact we're somehow 2-1 in the ACC (don't get angry about the UNC loss, don't get angry about the UNC loss, don't get angry about the UNC loss, don't get...).

Can someone explain what happened to Saleem Brightwell Peak said on the PL board that he’s basically been splitting snaps with Zeise evenly this year. Not sure what the exact breakdown is, but it must be close. He has 17 tackles (10 solo, 7 assisted) and 0.5 tackles for a loss. That isn’t great but...

I'm incredibly frustrated with this team and I think this is the quickest I've ever gone from almost entirely supportive of a coach to not giving a damn if he gets fired. I think I even gave Todd Graham most of his first season, probably because it WAS just his first season. That said, I still want ...

Checked the stats this morning. Barf. 112th overall in total offense at 343 yards per game. Of P5 teams, only Stanford, Kansas State, UCLA, Louisville, Iowa State and Rutgers are worse. What's especially damning is that Pitt right now is 54th overall in rushing with 191.6 yards per game, which is pr...

Paraphrasing Peak on the PL paysite board: Basically, Koontz is dealing with the same lack of usage issues at Ventura. He apparently feels as though their coaches misled him about how they planned on using him. He sees the same sort of thing happening at Pitt through the first half-season and doesn'...

Changes to the #Pitt depth chart for Syracuse: Elias Reynolds is No. 2 at MLB. Had been an OR with Chase Pine. Pine is now listed as No. 3. Freshman QB Nick Patti has been removed as the No. 3 QB.

Quite honestly, it was one of the most cowardly-executed and coached offensive game plans I've ever seen. Pitt was down 14-0 when RAL returned the punt for a touchdown at the end of the first quarter, so the game certainly wasn't out of hand. And I understood the idea of trying to go ball-control ea...

I watched some of UCF's games against UConn and FAU. They're going to get their points, largely because their offense is solid but also because Narduzzi continues to test the definition of insanity with his defensive scheme, doing the same thing over and over expecting it to click at some point.

The Coastal Division is hot garbage, weaker than the Big 10 West, and there is zero reason why Pitt should not win it every year, imo. Coming from an outsider fanboy of a team you all really hate, you're obviously not going to like this. But trust me on this... neutral outsiders think the same: Why...

I don't have as big an issue with the players that Narduzzi has recruited/is recruiting. It's been documented here and on other previous Pitt FB-related threads; they're bringing in more players with more collective P5 offers than the previous regimes were bringing in. There's no way to really predi...

I don't know why I do this to myself. No changes to the depth chart, because everything is fine. Chase Pine and Phil Campbell didn't see the field on Saturday. Reynolds played a lot, which for Pine seems to mean that he's fallen behind Reynolds on the depth chart and the DE experiment has gone bust...

It was hard to tell on TV today but I was at the GT and Albany games and most of what Watson designed seemed directed towards the sidelines. He threw very little over the middle of the field.

It is amazing to me that we live in a day and age where one movie that made 1.3 billion dollars at the boxoffice is considered 'divisive', and another that made $400 million is considered a 'bust'.
