Star Wars discussion (SPOILERS INCLUDED)

I checked out the first Aftermath novel and put it down after a couple of chapters. I was interested in more back story between Eps. 6 and 7, but the author's writing style is weird and I couldn't keep going. First time that's ever happened to me. I noticed the same thing but finished it. FWIW, I t...

Non-Spoilery Recommendation for WandaVision:

Episode 4 does a good job pulling together everything they throw out in Episodes 1-3.

Episode 8 is one of the best things to come out of the entire MCU. Olsen and Hahn are absolutely incredible in this.

OK, I must have misinterpreted Narduzzi's tweet about July 4. I thought that was in reference to the uniforms. Fearbry committing in a couple of weeks would cap off a pretty solid run for Pitt over this past month. It sounds like he's visiting UPS this weekend and it may come down to those two. He s...

Yaw yaw footbaw... It's June, official visits are allowed again, and Pitt has reeled in four commitments. The two confirmed so far are: RB Jordaan Bailey - 6'1", 190 lbs. from Tampa-Hillsborough HS in Florida. Three-star rated by Rivals. He has just one P5 offer (WVU), but had a series of pretty goo...

Mass Effect 2 is one of the best games of that generation of video games. Superb in every way. Though if you want the full effect I would start with 1 cause your decisions matter and carryover to 2. Started ME1. The inability to customize controls is a huge drawback for me, and the movement blows. ...

After reading up on some stuff over the weekend, I thought my perspective on Reid's recruiting situation changed but wow, was I naive to think that things really weren't as they seemed. I think it's pretty clear to see what happened here, especially after he delayed the 4/15 announcement and Mama Be...

Disappointed to see Gipson transferring now that he's finally healthy, but it's not surprising. It's a pretty crowded WR room, so I don't think he was really in line to get on the field much this year.

That would totally be a Pitt thing to have happen, but is there any legit source (that's not Pgh sports now) reporting that? Not that I've found. In fact, there's a PL thread about this and Matt Steinbrink takes it a step further. Steinbrink is probably more connected than anyone on Vuk's site to c...

Double whammy to Pitt hoops. Justin Champagnie has signed with Life Sports Agency and will keep his name in the 2021 NBA Draft. Because LSA has NCAA-certified agents, he could have elected to return, but Champagnie and the agency confirmed that his college career is over. Obviously happy for him and...

I watched Star Wars Biome last night. Nice.
I'm a sucker for those Aerial America shows on Smithsonian Channel, and I'm also a Star Wars geek so this Star Wars Biome is an absolutely lovely marriage of the two.

Awesome. Jones, Weaver, and especially Twyman went much later in the draft than they should have. Agree. This is where I'd love to be in the room with some of the scouts to pick their brains about how they evaluate these guys, particularly how they balance measurables/Pro Day workouts versus what t...

I'm not sure if it was posted above, but in addition to Ford with the Rams and Kessman with the Chargers, DJ Turner signed a free agent deal with the Raiders and Bryce Hargrove got one with Atlanta. All in all, six draftees plus four free agent deals is a pretty solid weekend for the program. I'd ha...

Pitt draftees include a walk-on, a three-star corner with two P5 offers, and a couple of two-star defensive ends. Narduzzi has issues as a coach and they are many, but that's pretty impressive when it comes to coaching and development. If he can get that to translate more on the offensive side of th...
