2020-2021 Pittsburgh Super Panthers Sports Thread

It feels like I'm responding a week late on this because I've had to tell myself at least 100 times that today isn't Friday. I hoped for a blowout against VT but didn't think it would happen. Actually, I wasn't even expecting a win after I saw that Addison, Wayne, Dennis, and Hill were out. I'm not ...

btw does anyone have any actual thoughts on the VT game? As disenchanted as I've been with the way the team has played, I'd love to see them just blow VT's doors off tomorrow for two reasons: No ACC team gets more undeserved media love than VT. They've been Pitt-like in terms of mediocrity over the...

I'm going to have to watch the game again. I missed the first half because I was out but I did catch most of it on the radio. In fact, I tuned in just as they were getting ready to snap the ball on what turned out to be Travis's long run, so that was a fun "do I continue to listen to this or just cu...

Yeah, let them learn the way of having their coach trip over his own dick and then blame you. ;) When he's gone after this year or next, this will be one of the things I won't miss about him at all. It'll be right up there with him taking pot shots at his former assistant coaches after they leave.

While I certainly agree with Dokish's sentiment from a frustration standpoint, you can plug Twyman and Mathis back into this defense and it's still not going to fix the myriad of issues that plague this team on the other side of the ball. The defense has its share of blame but the offense being a on...

Star Wars discussion (SPOILERS INCLUDED)

That was my favorite episode of the series so far... 1. The Cobb Vanth reveal didn't hit quite as hard for me as I'm reading the Aftermath series right now and haven't gotten to the Cobb Vanth parts of the books yet. That said, I was aware of the character and I really liked Olyphant was great. I ho...

People who talk about Fickell are crazy. He has a team in the Top 10. Why would he come to Pitt. I'd argue that salary/resources would likely be a step up for someone like Fickell but in his case, I'm not sure that's true. Narduzzi's total compensation last year was just over $4 million (base + inc...

I'm done with Narduzzi as well. I really liked the hire when it was made. I liked the energy he brought. I liked the presence they established on social media...the bravado. After his first two seasons, I thought Pitt had something. They beat UPS and Clemson. They won games they should have and didn...

I didn’t think Narduzzi would get fired this year unless things really went south - as in 3 wins and he loses the locker room. I’m starting to wonder if we’re getting close to that. This is four games in a row now where the vaunted defense has been picked apart, and this by a team that wasn’t suppos...

Sibley also out. Apparently got injured in practice.

Camp is back, so that should help on the defensive line.

Knowing I shouldn’t be so stupid to actually get my hopes up, I thought even during the preseason that of the marquee games on the schedule, ND presented one of the more favorable matchups for Pitt. ND runs the ball well but Pitt’s run defense is pretty solid and reports are that Camp should be back...

On a slightly different topic, I'd like to say I liked some of what I saw in Yellen. I'm used to seeing KSP duck out and roll at the first sign of pressure (which is fine in its own right most times). Yellen had a bit of poise in the pocket and stepped up into the pocket a few times when pressure w...

No Brevin Jordan for the U so the football gods may be showing a bit of mercy.

I'll quote Rockhound from Armageddon...It's time to embrace the horror. All in on the Beville/Yellin train.

No Kenneth Shane Pickett today, per Brett McMurphy. Starter will either be Beville or Yellen.

Pickett, Camp, and Abanikanda were not listed on the travel roster, according to Panther Lair.

This should be fun.

I just have a bad feeling about this one. This game felt like a loss even when I hoped Pitt could have pulled off 5-0 heading into this game and given what we've seen from the offense against teams not named Austin Peay, I'm less optimistic. I know previous Miami games have nothing really to do with...

The loss took a bit away from absolute monster games by SirVocea Dennis and Patrick Jones. Dennis had 11 total tackles (8 solo, 3 assisted), had 4.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 of which were credited as sacks. That's just ridiculous. Jones had three sacks to go with four tackles (2 solo, 2 assisted). Also...

Is it bad that I was not shocked what so ever when Kessman missed the extra point, and honestly expected it?

Some thoughts... 1. Rumors flying around on PL that Pickett broke his ankle and is probably done for the year.

Last week's loss felt a lot like the 2010 loss to UConn did to me. Perhaps not ironically, that also Year 6 of Wanny, with a veteran team and a number of players who were NFL-caliber. That was still a bit of a flawed team - it was Tino's first year as a starter, if I remember correctly - but the pie...

What I hope to see tomorrow: Addison & Wayne are healthy because the offense needs all the damn help they can get. On the first 2 possessions, Pitt comes out throwing, Pickett has time (he mostly has this year), and moves the ball through the air. Rely on Mack, Turner, & Shocky, and obviously Addiso...

One thing I'd like to think the coaches realize from yesterday's game is that they may have found something to build on with the offense. The most productive this offense has been overall in any game this year against FBS competition was when Pickett was throwing against NC State. He wasn't perfect,...
