  • ACC Media days, Pitt depth chart released for training camp
  • Tre Tipton injury
  • Recruiting has been going well
  • Paris Ford may or may not be eligible for Fall

Pitt QB Updates & Tough Life Questions

It’s as slow as it gets when it comes to talking about Pitt, but we soldier on… Quarterbacks seemed to be the hot topic coming out of the last week of Spring Ball, so we talk Pitt’s starter, and the competition behind him. We also talk about some QB recruiting news as well. Then, it’s on to our listener question of the week, which really throws us for a loop in a “would you rather situation.” All that, and more, in Episode 236!

Cam Johnson Gone; What Next for Pitt Basketball?

Pitt lost another player — this time Cameron Johnson — to transfer. Where do we go from here? What are we supposed to think about Kevin Stallings and Pitt basketball?

All that, and more, in Episode 234!

Lyke or DisLyke? Pitt Has a New AD

Pitt has a new athletic director, so we’re here to give our initial impressions of Heather Lyke. Can she take on some of the biggest challenges that Pitt presents? Competing with the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins for attention in this city is no easy task. Neither has been filling the seats at Heinz Field. We talk about the situation Lyke walks in to.

We also talk football and basketball in this episode as well. Spring Ball continues, and we have a few updates from camp. Basketball continues to see players transfer out of the program, and we debate whether or not we should be concerned. All that, and more, in Episode 232!

Suffer No More, Pitt BBall Season Ends; Football Proposed Rule Changes

It’s safe to say Pitt’s men’s basketball season did not go the way most thought it would, but it’s all over now and we’re here to summarize the year the best way we can. We start by recapping the brief stint in the ACC tournament and how Pitt went down swinging, discuss Kevin Stallings’ future, and also add a touch of good news with a new JUCO transfer committing to the Panthers. In an effort to forget about basketball, we finish up with some recommended rule changes for college football next year and give our thoughts on those. All of this, and more in episode 228!

How long have these issues been looming? We also divide out blame for the failures this season, as well as read your reaction. We then shift to how Pitt players performed at the NFL Scouting Combine, and finish with the most important debate in the episode- Sheetz vs. Wawa. All this, and more in episode 226!
