Camp Notes

The Post-Gazette takes a look at Senior corner and everyone's favorite kick returner, Aaron Berry:

Berry, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound senior cornerback, was one of the highest-rated players in the 2006 recruiting class and was a starter by the third game of his sophomore season.

Last year, he was second-team All-Big East after recording 41 tackles and three interceptions and breaking up a team-high 10 passes. But he also had too many lapses and gave up too many big plays for a guy who was contemplating leaving school for the NFL.


Seriously though, kick return follies and defensive lapses aside, he's expected to be a major player for the Panthers this year. Personally, he's given up too many big plays for me to call him a shut down corner. I'll have to see it to believe it.

Meanwhile, the Trib takes a look at the guys replacing the forgotten third key departure - Conor Lee:

"Conor Lee, we know by his production here at Pitt how valuable he was to the university," Wannstedt said of Lee, who set a school record with five field goals at Notre Dame, including the game winner of the 36-33 quadruple-overtime victory. "Now, the first time we go out to kick a field goal between Kevin Harper and (Hutchins), it's going to be the first time they're lining up and performing when it counts."

This could really be a serious problem for Pitt. Their offense is not why they were picked to win the Big East, so they may be a team heavily relying on field goals for points. If they can't convert those, it could spell doom.

Paul Zeise checks with his camp notes and continues to rave about Aundre Wright and the running backs.

The AP also spotlights Pitt's losses and its chances to win a wide open Big East.
