Eye opening story about Joe Delsardo's Pitt football career and his drug abuse. He's now speaks at Western PA highschools about his past experiences. Check out his hand on helmet catch against Rutgers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aDiD9KN6lI
Had a chance to add another writing gig to my collection. I'll be chiming in with some posts over at Stadium Journey - hands down, the best site for sports venue reviews and related news. My first post had to do with the Consol Energy Center so since it was related to Pittsburgh, I figured it was fair game to mention here. Be sure to head over and check it out.
Pitt moves up to a number 5 seed, slated to play the winner of a play in game. That play-in game will between 2 of the final 4 at-large teams to make the tourney. Also of note, the Big East has 8 teams in, and none in the "Last 4 in". Villanova was there on Tuesday, but have moved up. With a nice run in the Big East Tournament, I think Pitt can move up to a 4, and maybe a 3 if they win it. Go Panthers!
Came across this video. Three Pitt dunks in top 50, two in the top 10 (including #1). You can guess who #1 is, "Send it in..."
Beano Cook, of Pittsburgh infamy, is dead. Rest in Peace. Another of Pittsburgh (oh yeah and some other city in Mass.) sports lore lost to the ages. I raise my glass to a man who has brought so much obscure lore of the game to thousands, if not millions, of people. Thank you, Beano. Say hi to The Great One for us.
Yearly match-ups vs. Notre Dame, B1G, or SEC team? Yes please. As for the Big East, well....that sucks.
Former Pitt star Antonio Bryant was back in the news this weekend ... and it wasn't good.
Hard to believe it was only 3 years ago that Pitt was minutes away from clinching a BCS bowl slot. Seems Steigi isn't holding his breath that Pitt will be close again anytime soon. After watching the last two games, its hard to disagree with him.
