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!
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? Are things ever going to improve? We debate. We also take a look at spring football practice and talk about injuries to Chris Clark and Damar Hamlin and analyze the potential impact of these losses. All that, and more, in Episode 234!
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!
Rachel Maddow joins us to discuss Pat Narduzzi…
It’s time to talk football! Pitt Spring football has arrived, and we’re excited to get back to talking football and be surrounded by good vibes. What are we most interested in this Spring? What players have switched positions? Who will fill in as leaders for 2017? We discuss all that, and more, in Episode 230!
Chris and Dan are joined by their Brunch Breakdown co-host Daniel Dudley to give their game-by-game picks for the NCAA Basketball Tournament! Picks were made using the eyeball test, deep analytical research, and even which city offers the better brunch!? Use these recommendations wisely, and see how you stack-up against the Bracket Breakdown crew.
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!
It’s been a rough end to the year for Pitt Basketball, and we start by discussing the news of Justice Kithcart being dismissed from the team and the discipline showed to Mike Young and Jamel Artis in the regular season finale. 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!
Basketball season has been a drag, so why not focus on happier things? How about a Pitt Softball perfect game! Sounds good to us. That’s what we discuss, along with Pitt’s two upsetting losses to Wake Forest and North Carolina last week. We take your calls, debate what we’d say to Pitt’s current and past coach, and look ahead to next week. All that, and more, in Episode 224!
What’s there to do when college football season is seven months away? Rank the most annoying fan bases! And that’s just what we’ve done in our latest Pitt episode. Penn State? West Virginia? Notre Dame? Where do they, and many others, rank? We debate and discuss!
We also dig into the week that was in Panther basketball, and we talk about Pitt’s chances at the NCAA Tournament. That’s right… they might not be done just yet! That’s thanks to a big win against Florida State on Saturday.
We also talk some Pitt football and react to the hiring of Charlie Partridge. ESPN.com has also done a few offseason football articles that mention Pitt, so we talk linebackers, quarterbacks, and offensive coordinator Shawn Watson. All that, and more, in Episode 222!
We’re back with another Pitt episode of the Chris and Dan Podcast! In this episode, we get to actually revel in two Pitt basketball wins. TWO!! It’s been a while, so we choose to start things out with basketball, rather than pushing it off to the end (as we’ve done for weeks on end). It’s just great to see a win again. We also talk about Pitt football’s non-conference schedule being ranked toughest in the country, and we debate whether or not we can root for Pitt alums that end up playing for professional teams that we hate. All that, and more, in Episode 220!
