Paul Chryst still not naming a starting quarterback

Paul Chryst still not naming a starting quarterback. "It’s not a rigid timetable, but you certainly have an idea. I think right now, for the first week the process is to make sure you’re getting back into it and seeing where you’re at, and the second week–and I’ve told this to all players, the quarterback fits into it–now you have to do it on a consistent level. I still think the whole focus is each guy coming out and working that day to get better. I like the way Chad (Voytik) has gone about camp–and Trey (Anderson) for that matter. I think the young kids are getting to the point where we can start to run some plays. I like the way they’re going with it, but timetable–not overly concerned yet." Paul Chryst at training camp

1. Pitt plans on making a statement in its final season in the Big East by resuming its traditional role under Jamie Dixon as a title contender after last season’s NCAA miss. To tipoff the campaign, the Panthers are doing something out of the box for the more maligned Panthers by hosting a Midnight Madness event --- outside. The unique event will be a part of the school’s 225-year anniversary celebration. The men’s and women’s teams will play on a wooden outdoor floor, near the Pitt Union. Lights, bleachers and a video board will be brought in for the free event that should begin after a fireworks display at 9:15 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12. If the weather doesn’t cooperate then the teams will go inside at the Petersen Events Center. The Panthers return guard Tray Woodall and add two big-time newcomers in James Robinson and Central Michigan transfer Trey Zeigler.

Andy Katz of ESPN Finally, Pitt is getting Midnight Madness. And if it is outdoors, all the better.

"The worst thing in the world for Pitt could have been Tyler Boyd going down there and catching passes from Hackenberg," Farrell said. "They worked together like they had been a pass-catching combination for years. It was an instantaneous connection."

"Actually, I haven’t heard it from my opponents. They either didn’t know my last name or didn’t pay attention," [Blewitt] said. "It’s just my teammates. Nobody else has tried to get inside my head. I’ve been through it all. I’ll just hear my name again. I won’t think anything of it."

"Personally, I think the notion that two conferences agreeing to play each other in one bowl game is going to change intercollegiate athletics forever is a little bit preposterous, a little bit of an overreaction. But that’s the business we’re in. Big East Senior Associate Commissioner Nick Carparelli
