Pitt AD Pederson: Dixon-To-Maryland Reports Were ‘Goofy’

PITTSBURGH (Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN) — Pitt athletic director Steve Pederson joined Vinnie & Cook on Sportsradio 93-7 The Fan, and he shares his thoughts on the past weekend’s reports of Jamie Dixon’s interest in the Maryland job. Mr. Pederson also puts the wraps on a great event, as Pitt recognized a century of African-American athletes with a gala at the Petersen Events Center. He tells us how last night’s event affected some of the current Pitt athletes, and how impressive the turnout was.

    Pitt blows & Maryland never considered Dixon a viable candidate. They wanted Miller from Az all along but he used Md as leverage to get a juicy contract. They all do. Turgeon is a Gary Williams clone & it will take a few years for him to recruit but he will be kicking Pitt’s a$$ on a regular basis after that. Md has a national title, Pitt always chokes down the stretch. Black players don’t have fortitude.

    KDKA, It’d be really nice if someone moderated racist comments.

    They are more worried about comments about the big mouth drunk Mandie than they are worried about racist comments..

    Although I dont think sheriff is to bright since I believe Maryland had a few black players on the national championship team..And I do recall UConn have a few also so sheriff mommy is calling you cause its bed time.

      Hey Raul, Out of that championship team of Md’s, Juan Dixon is out of the league for drugs. Lonnie Baxter is playing somewhere in a pick up game. Chris Wilcox, a journeyman at best, out of the league. All porch monkeys. Steve Blake (White) who made it happen is a reserve guard on the Lakers & has had a nice career. Coons may get you there because it is a Black man’s game but the brains & fortitude are all with the white players.

    Speaking of feeling goofy… Did you hear what Steve Pederson did while visiting Disneyland?

    Who is the reporter in the photo sporting the giant perm?

    Dixon should go somewhere else, he is too good of a coach to be stuck with the University of “Let’s choke at the Sweet 16” every year. Same thing has been happening for how many years now? Lets all hype up Pitt and wear our Oakland Zoo shirts, have endless news reports of how great they are, just to watch them crumble in the Sweet 16, yet again….it brings me great joy to sit back and watch this unfold every year. Pitt chokes harder then Monica Lewinsky.

    Like I said in an earlier post. Pittsburgh the team & the town are inferiority complex material. That city sucks.
