Well, despite the disappointing loss, there still has to be a Panther of the game. I really shouldn't say that, because the man who wins the award really does deserve it with the game he had against Navy. Pitt's senior wide receiver, Devin Street, had a nice game after the vicious hit against Virginia Tech two weeks ago.

Street finished the game with nine catches for 96 yards on the day. The Liberty High School product also added on a touchdown and a two-point conversion, which put Pitt up late on Navy in the 4th quarter. I am glad to be able to hand it out to Street, as he probably does not get near enough credit for what he does for this team off the field, combined with what he does off the field.

The Bethlehem, PA native's leadership has been the cornerstone of this team, but he always seemed to be outdone on the field, despite great numbers. Not today, though. On top of everything else, Street's ninne catches today put him into first place on the all-time receptions leader list at Pitt, passing Latef Grim. He also passed Larry Fitzgerald to slide into fourth place on the career receiving yards list at the University of Pittsburgh. Congratulations, Devin.

Not bad for a guy who Todd Graham questioned one-on-one (just a few days before leaving for ASU in a cowardly way) about his leadership and dedication. No doubt Fraud is somewhere trying to take credit for Street's accomplishments.
