2014-2015 Pitt Super Panthers Football Thread

Postby slappybrown on Fri Aug 15, 2014 11:13 am

The Pitt Super Panthers kick off another exciting season of football in two weeks versus the Delaware Blue Hens.

The key questions heading into the season:

1. What road games will NAN attend?

2. Will NAN poop at the road game, and which road facility will win the coveted "NAN's Golden Toilet Trophy presented by Allstate"?

3. Will the Pitt clique shout down the awful PSU fans in our midst -- SDD, DTMB, C2I, Shafnutz05, and THG primarily -- as we inch ever closer to the resumption of the Pitt-PSU rivalry in only two short years.

4. Are my fears that Chryst's recruiting is going to keep this team at a 6-8 win ceiling in most every year unfounded? The roster is now at the tipping point of being close to a majority of "Chryst guys" versus leftovers from the Wannstadt/Graham era.

5. Is Tyler Boyd the best or the best?

6. How will the Super Panthers do this season? I say 7-5:

DEL - W - 30-17
@BC - L - 13-24
@FIU - W - 27-21
IOWA - W - 17-13
AKRON - W - 38-33
@UVA - L - 30-38
VTECH - L - 20-38
GTECH - L - 24-28
DUKE - W - 41-20
@UNC - W - 30-27
SYR - W - 35-10
@MIA - L - 16-34

7. Please bring back the script and the stickers, and modernize along the lines the bring back the script guy on twitter has created:

Every other school has multiple variations these days, but these are actually all excellent looking, especially the all-whites with yellow helmet.

d.) A ho hum 7-5 sounds about right

e.) those uniforms are uggo.

Et tu, Kenny? I like them so much more than what we wear. I'd be fine with the true classic script as well, but I like those mockups a lot.

I saw what had to be a Pitt Super Panther rolling down greenfield avenue at 7:00 am towards the south side facilities. This guy was in one of those large grey sweat suits with one of those weird shoulder strap nylon bags with the panther logo and #98. This would otherwise be unremarkable, except #98, and in this gentleman's opinion, the best player on the team, rides a scooter.

They should crush Boston College, BUT, that game has Pitt loss written all over it.

7-5 sounds about right. They lose to BC, 2 out of 3 between UVA, VT, and GT, UNC, & Miami.

Assuming that the line will be improved, I think their offense has the potential to be really good. They are going to have a hard time getting all their weapons on the filed.

The defense is what concerns me. The need at least 3 guys to step up this year, which is a long shot with the current personnel they have on that side of the ball.

They're going to beat VT and ruin a perfectly decent VT season because Pitt ruins other people's nice things. They're on the same level as Boston College.

Nah, that would mean UConn would replace Pitt, and no one wants UConn.

To be serious, I hope Pitt does well. Just not when playing Penn State. :slug:

:(

I dig the script logo. The color 'tan' should be banned from any/all Pittsburgh sports.

I'm also on team modern script. 55 percent of schools are blue and gold and 0 have that ugly yellow color. Own it Pitt

What's the word on Voytik in relation to a special talent like Sunseri?

Rated much higher coming out of high school than Sunseri was.

Lead Pitt to a come from behind win versus Bowling Green in the Pizza Bowl, which is something that Tino never did in 3 years as a starter.

Finally, the most important piece, he is not Tino Sunseri.
