I learned about two good things on Twitter today. First, Pat Narduzzi tweeted a somewhat cryptic “Pitt is It” with a devil emoticon. Many fans quickly pointed out that the tweet did not include any reference to 2020, and so it’s now widely speculated that the ‘Duz has brought in a grad transfer. One person on twitter joked about Tommy Stevens. That would certainly warrant a devil emoticon, but it’s also pure speculation. Would be a very interesting locker room dynamic if it were the case.
Second, Pitt now has a virtual campus tour online, and it’s really freaking cool. Here is a screenshot. Put this baby up on your bigscreen and it’s like being in Oakland all over again. If only there were a virtual stadium…
Third, Reed has officially retired and become a blogger emeritus, and he’s handed over the Pitt POV to me full time. So THANK YOU REED. Writing for this blog has really been a dream come true. I’ve always loved to write and I’ve had a passion for Pitt Football since I saw them upset Miami on that fateful Thursday night in 1997. Readers should expect the POV to be a fixture in the Pitt Sports webosphere for many years to come. In celebration of me taking over, I’ve relaxed the login restrictions to the site so you can post without having an account. I’ve also re-instated a couple of the posters that had been banned (notably Dr. Tom and RKB), so please welcome them back to the fold.
Please note that the rules still apply (no politics, no religion and no swearing) and I simply will not tolerate personal attacks in any direction. You’ll get one warning and a post deletion if I deemed you to have attacked someone directly, and if you do it again you’ll be banned.
With that being said, I think we’ve had some really lively and yet civilized adult dialog lately and I would like that to continue. Keep it up fellas and lady and Hail to Pitt!
