PITTSBURGH PANTHERS RUMORS & GOSSIP
It’s been a while since I wrote anything about the football team (okay, it’s been a while since I had some time to write much of anything). So, time to hit the links.
Cam Saddler is back with the team and down in Birmingham. Arthur Doakes, however, is not.
Pitt redshirt sophomore Arthur Doakes , who started the final four games of the regular season at right guard, was suspended...
There is all sorts of talk going around about Notre Dame being almost a lock for a BCS Bowl game since bowl executives are already strongly eyeing the Fighting Irish as an at large and there is even a good possibility that they could get into a BCS game with two losses. "I tend to think right now, there's a lot to be played, but I don't see how they could avoid being...
The Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that three Pittsburgh football players are being charged with simple assault and conspiracy in connection with an incident from last month.
Three other Pitt students reported getting involved in a confrontation on the street that led to one of them getting hit in the head according to reports.
The three players, running back Ray Graham, receiver...
Three University of Pittsburgh football players will be summoned to court for the alleged attack of a man in October. Pittsburgh Panthers RB Ray Graham, WR Devin Street, and and DB Lafayette Pitts [Read More...]
In the most unlikely of scenarios, the Pittsburgh Panthers woke up and decided they were going to take out two weeks worth of frustration on the Hokies of Virginia Tech. Frank Beamer suffered his 4th straight loss to Pitt, and third straight at Heinz field. His quarterback struggled throwing some very high crossing routes, and when you throw it too high across the...
The NCAA's Top 25 is about to get a shakeup. Virginia Tech was put down by future ACC member Pittsburgh in a game that left many feeling that perhaps this program can’t ride on it’s defense’s coattails after all.

A trumpet player in the Cincinnati band did a faceplant onto the field as he lost his balance near the bottom of the stadium steps before Thursday night's Bearcats football game against the Pittsburgh Panthers. To make matters worse, his mouthpiece broke off his trumpet, making it unable for him to play.
Rather than disrupt the band's performance and call more attention...
Not exactly surprising
Pittsburgh starting running back Ray Graham is “unlikely to play” in the Panthers’ season opener against Youngstown State on Sept. 1, sources told ESPN.
Graham, a senior, is still recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee suffered against Connecticut on Oct. 26 and has been limited in fall drills. Before last year’s injury, he was...
I realize Pitt is re-transitioning to a 4-3 defense, from the 3-4, but given that it was only one season. And most of the players were already schooled in the 4-3 principles, I’m not going to be buying too many excuses for struggling based on that move.
On the other hand, the linebackers themselves may be a big concern. Todd Thomas appears to be slower coming back from his ACL...
NOWHERE TO BE FOUND
Washington Redskins defensive end Kentwan Balmer has missed the last two days of training camp and apparently has gone AWOL.
With just over a month until kickoff for the 2012 college football season, there's plenty of downtime for players to work on sharpening their...
A kicker who just committed to Pitt has an ominous last name. Yeah, not the kind that instills confidence in a coach or fan base.
Pitt sophomore running back Derrick Burns was in stable condition at a Pittsburgh hospital on Tuesday night after falling ill with an undisclosed medical condition.
Burns was being held for observation and further tests after becoming ill at his home in New Wilmington, Pa., on Tuesday afternoon.
The 20-year-old Burns was competing with Mark Giubilato for the starting fullback spot...

In what has been a bit of an open secret for some time, Bobby Engram was finally announced as Pitt's new receivers coach. He's probably best known for his stint with the Seattle Seahawks and his time at Penn State. While he's a bit light on coaching experience - his only other gig was this season as an assistant for the 49ers - but he does a wealth of experience on the...
