Input Needed for FB Downtime

Guys can you please try to think of some of the topics you would like to have articles written about while we have all this time in between now and the bowl game and then again until the spring practices start.

I think I’ll do a quick series on departing senior starters and what their careers were like individually and of course I’m going to do one on our defense and what kind of coaching changes we may or may not see after the bowl game.

I also think I’ll do a few Pitt FB history ones.  I do want to keep trying to post one article a day if possible, but it really is kind of hard to come up with something that’s going to be worth writing and then also worth reading and commenting on…

The ball is in your court.

Speaking of balls and courts if anyone wants to chip in and write a basketball article or two or maybe even weigh in on the Pitt Administration or coaching or whatever you want to write about please do.

I want to share some of the load here if possible so if you don’t have my email address here it is:

…and you can just drop me the draft article in an email and and if I feel like it’s something our readers would like I’ll clean it up and put some visual stuff in it then I’ll posted it.

That way you too can call other people ingrates under your breath like I do.

POV’s Monday Morning QB

As I said in the podcast yesterday – it was a strange game to watch.  It is also a strange game to try to dissect for MMQB.  Let’s start with the positives first:


* Nate Peterman’s efficiency in passing.   For only throwing 18 passes he had one of the best days I can remember from a Pitt QB.  Here is his box score:

POV’s Sunday Podcast; Armageddon
Game of Thrones

First off let’s congratulate Matt Canada and his offense – scoring 76 points in a single ball game is damn impressive. So – good for you.

This is a bit late in posting but in all honestly I wasn’t all that happy with the way things turned out yesterday and, even with a regular season-ending win, I feel disappointed.

Some fans just care about the Ws and Ls and I can understand that in part. Those tick marks will be the historical record that goes in the books for later when we talk about past seasons.

POV Game Day Thread; Syracuse

Here we are in the last Saturday of the regular season and this game is not looking like it’s going to surprise anyone. At least it doesn’t feel that way.

Let’s hope Pitt plays to form today against Syracuse.  If so will have our eighth win on the season to match the winning total of last year, something that clearly shows progress from 2015.

We had our predictions posted  yesterday… I didn’t see anyone picking Syracuse to win so it’s pretty much a sure bet we’re going to take this game.  Then again we’re talking about Pitt football and there isn’t a college team anywhere who is so good as to not lose a football game given the right circumstances…right Clemson?

We won’t see that today. I think we’ll pull out a good win and get us on the road to preparing for a good Bowl showing unlike Navy last season.

And hopefully we can send James Connor out of Heinz Field with rousing ovations of genuine thanks at the end of this game, his last one at home.  Although Aaron Donald did return for his fourth year… remember?

Let’s hear what you guys have to say as things unfold.

HTP !!!
