Old Pitt stadium question. Did there used to be circle urinal troughs? I feel like I vaguely remember going to the bathroom at a sporting event in a circle trough, and it being Pitt stadium.

I don't remember those. I just remember the long troughs along the wall similar to Heinz.

On Wednesday Robert Foster texted his family and said he was going to #Pitt. On Friday he changed his mind and committed to #Alabama.

Yes they do. Still could be a solid class. 2 out of the Dorian Johnson/Boyd/Foster trio would still be pretty darn good.

It would be, I just hope Foster flipping to Bama doesn't change Boyd's mind.

Be tough to pick *any* program over 'bama at this point...

... unless, you don;t think you'll get playing time at 'Bama.

You can't show what you got if you don't gt on the field.

The Pitt coaching staff really knows how to sell that ACC Academic advantage eh?

"The most important thing," he said Tuesday, "is the academic and support system."

Probably going to be open competition between savage and voytik. Savage is probably the favorite at this point. I'm assuming Chapman will redshirt.

I didn't see the press conference, but apparently he cried as he announced his decision and also apologized for choosing Alabama, both of which are odd, in addition to not having an Alabama hat to put on. Despite being a Pitt fan, I hope his decision works out for him (after all he is just an 18 year old kid), but to me it sounds like he got to his scheduled press conference day, still hadn't fully made up his mind, announced his "new" decision, and then regretted it afterwards. Its a lot of pressure on a young kid, hope it works out for him one way or the other.

Doubt it's over, but if he goes to Alabama, good for him. Don't think he can make a wrong decision in his situation.

the more i read about this, the more it sounds like it isn't over. Also, the more I feel like he won't play much D-1 football anywhere. We'll see. Hope it works out for him.

I have... not a bad place... why the phobia over dog gone near any school south of the Mason-Dixon for Pitt fans?

It's not like Oakland is such a garden spot.

Besides, you know as well as anyone, the SEC provides better TV exposure.
