My POV’er friends…
I have three more full-sized Pitt POV car magnets that attach to the sides of your car – I’ll mail them out to the first three POV’ers who promise to use them while driving to and from, and at, the home games.
Anyway – if you want one then send me an email ASAP with your address and “CAR MAGNET” in the subject line and the first three get one. I’ll say this though – the tiebreaker will be if the requester is a past donor to the POV.
I wish I had extras and am now in the process of begging money off my darling daughter so I can afford a few more… but she’s being a hard ass. That ‘Just think how much I spent on you as a child‘ argument is not working with her any longer.
But I will get a few more if these go quickly – so send me that email if you want one now and I can get it to you before the YSU game… firstname.lastname@example.org
I just mailed two to Fran (Lastrowofsection4) as thanks for his hosting the POV tailgates this season – remember that we’ll be in Parking Lot Red 5A right next to the Red 5 parking garage and the Renaissance Inn… and right where the North Shore Light Rail stations steps are.
Fran gets their five (5!) hours before game time, it starts at 1pm this week, and I am driving up from Maryland and will get there around 10am.
Here is something for the Pitt fans attending the Penn State game in Naysayers Valley:
The Pitt football program added its second recruit of the week Thursday, as local product David Green committed to head coach Pat Narduzzi.
A 6-foot-1 defensive lineman from Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School, Green chose the Panthers over Virginia Tech, Minnesota and Rutgers, among others.
He is rated a 3-star player by 247Sports and is the fourth defensive lineman in the 2018 class, joining fellow WPIAL products Noah Palmer and Devin Danielson and Maryland native John Morgan.
The trio of players will be critical in rebuilding depth on Narduzzi’s defense after the coach dismissed two projected starters this summer — seniors Jeremiah Taleni and Rori Blair. A number of young, inexperienced players will be expected to step up this year, but the team will need to recruit the position heavily to get back to a healthy number of players.
In total, the class of 2018 now has 14 players, with all 14 ranked as 3-star recruits by 247Sports. The website currently has the group ranked No. 53 in the country and No. 12 in the ACC.
There’s still a long way to go though, and the class could come a long way by the Feb. 7 signing deadline.
