PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — An era that didn’t really last long enough for any of us to fully appreciate it has ended at the University of Pittsburgh.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — It was a performance to be remembered, though not necessarily a performance to be replicated.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — One of the most common knocks against Jamie Dixon is he doesn’t think outside his own metaphorical box, insisting all the basketball world’s problems can be solved by simply boxing out. Imagine the surprise of his critics when, together, he and the Panthers did both.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Is it heretical for me to say I’m more excited about the future of Pitt football than I am about that of men’s basketball?
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — National Letter of Intent Day for major college football was a good one for Pitt, especially when Tyler Boyd joined its 27-man recruiting class, and fellow WPIAL superstar Dorian Johnson, another incoming Panther, saw it coming.
CLAIRTON (93-7 THE FAN) — When Clairton senior Tyler Boyd signed his letter of intent Wednesday morning, Paul Chryst officially got an out-of-this-world local talent. In fact, it sounds like Chryst is willing to go outside his own world to best utilize that talent.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — There are players on Jamie Dixon’s bench who, conceivably, could start for a number of Division I teams, and conventional wisdom says J.J. Moore is one. Should Dixon shake things up at forward?
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Jim Boeheim, otherwise eloquent in defeat, had no answer for why Jamie Dixon continues to have his team’s number, but Dixon was able to put a finger on it. Ten of them, actually.

A crash involving a motorcycle sent crews to Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood Saturday night.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — We live in a world where Dante Taylor is met with thunderous applause for something he did on the offensive end. So is it finally safe to say this season will be different for the Panthers?
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — You know, after the butt-tuning that occurred in our nation’s capital five days ago, I was sorely tempted to proclaim that Pitt is back. Then, Saturday happened.
(93-7 THE FAN) — Once again, there was a coaching change at Pitt right before this year’s BBVA Compass Bowl, but this time it wasn’t the one everyone dreaded, and it doesn’t look like it’s crushed the spirit of a defense that played spirited football at season’s end.
(93-7 THE FAN) — Scoff if you will about their return to Legion Field, but for Paul Chryst’s 17 seniors, including sixth-year lineman Chris Jacobson, this edition of the BBVA Compass Bowl has already been more than a glorified exhibition game.
