(Please excuse fading in and out but I used a new mic and it screwed up. also – excuse the garble at the beginning of Part 1 – I over-recorded after the surprise phone call. That won’t happen again.)
Take a look at the tagline under the Website’s title (between the Panther’s eyes). I changed it to include everyone who reads and comments on this site! It now reads “We have our eyes on Pitt football”.
As promised here is the latest edition of The Pitt POV’s Sunday Morning Podcast series. It is always fun for me to do and those of you who have listened to other podcasts I have done both here and on The Pitt Blather know that I try to keep a semblance of order to it. However, that sometimes goes out the window as soon as I start talking into the microphone.
I had to cut it into two parts today because the phone rang and discombobulated me. So we have Part 1 which talks about the website itself, you readers and commenters and the way forward with that:
Then Part 2:
We had a scary tweet (to me at least) from a new employee of Pitt’s Athletic Dept. who sent this out on Twitter.
I say scary because E.J. Borghetti is the one who offered me media credentials and the contrarian that I am sometimes I saw them flying out the window with a new Media Director. But it turns out Ms Weisenbach is the Media director for Woman’s Basketball only.
We cover Mike Vukovcan’s Pittsburgh Sports Now article this morning and the cryptic 2nd paragraph that says nothing but a head scratching ‘wait and see’:
It isn’t taking long for a couple of the Pitt freshman players to make an early impression. A “Little Panther” is telling me to look for cornerbacks Damar Hamlin and Therran Coleman to push for plenty of playing time if not a starting cornerback job. Also, don’t be surprised if freshman George Hill and Henry Miller are moved to safety.
I know this won’t make people happy that I can’t give details now but I learned of an interesting situation that could be happening but at the moment am not at liberty to elaborate. It’s one of those situations where sources trust you with information and if I burn that source, I’ll never be trusted. At the proper time, everything will come out and hopefully I can be the first to reveal it. Stay tuned.
Then we get into Phil Steele’s magazine’s 2016 College Football Preview and the interesting things I found when reading it last night. Some we all can agree with, other issues he raises can be debated as to whether they will happen or not.
Note: I am trying to put an “Events Calendar” on the site so that I can inform all when The Pitt POV will be hosting something. Most likely it will be revolving around beer or food before the games.
Also, I will be sending out an email soon to those addresses I have asking for your feedback and discussing other issues with this blog. If you get one and don’t want anymore of them just reply saying that – I’m doing newsletters and other things so give it a chance… if not then let me know you aren’t interested.
And… thanks again for everything – we have gotten off to a great start!
