Paul Chryst speaks on benching of Chad Voytik for Trey Anderson against FIU

In the second half of Pitt's game against Florida International, head coach Paul Chryst made a curious move by replacing starting quarterback Chad Voytik with backup Trey Anderson. The move only lasted a series but with the Panthers up by only seven, the move made little sense to, well, just about everyone.

Behind The Steel Curtain

Being a Pittsburgh Steelers fan is about more than victory parades and Lombardi trophies

The legacy of Art Rooney is not one of abandonment, but rather, support and acceptance, even when times aren't good. In the wake of two underwhelming performances by the Steelers in Weeks 1 and 2 of the 2014 season, the pundits' traveling medicine show is out in full force, bearing every manner of snake-oil tonics reckoned to quickly cure the grievous and myriad ills now ailing the Black and Gold.

Pitt shakes off slow start for 42-25 win over Florida International to start season 3-0

With an early 16-0 Pitt deficit, a lightning delay, three safeties, Dave Wannstedt blowing up Steve Pederson at halftime, fumbling issues, and a Chad Voetik benching, things were, say, interesting in Pitt's 42-25 win over Florida International. The early start was beyond disappointing.

Dave Wannstedt uses halftime of Pitt-FIU game to blow up athletic director Steve Pederson

Ever wonder if former Pitt football head coach Dave Wannstedt is still holding a grudge against Pitt athletics director, Steve Pederson? That question was answered on Saturday at halftime of the team's game against Florida International. In what was one of the most premeditated things you'll ever see, the former Pitt coach somehow managed to crush Pederson when analyzing the first half of the game.

Sunseri, Durant share NFL ties

In the absence of starting quarterback Darian Durant, centre, the Saskatchewan Roughriders' understudies -- Tino Sunseri, left, and Seth Doege, 7 -- will each move up a notch on the team's depth chart. Tino Sunseri and Darian Durant have more in common than being quarterbacks with the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders.

James Conner gaining early steam for Heisman Award

Despite the two monster games Pitt running back James Conner has put together, I'm still in the camp of it being way too early to talk about him for national awards. It would be one thing if Conner were an early favorite, but since he's not, he's really going to have impress voters if Pitt hovers around being a 7-8 win team.

Liberty High School grad Anthony Gonzalez thriving at linebacker for Pitt football team

Liberty High School graduate Anthony Gonzalez has always been the type of super-athlete that can get offensive and defensive coaches drooling about his potential on the football field. There's a danger that comes with that fascination.

GAMEFACE: Hubie Graham revitalized the Invaders

With his remarkable athletic abilities, the gritty kid from West Scranton not only revitalized a football community, he brought college recruiters to Northeast Pennsylvania and re-opened a door for area athletes to get noticed on the next level. Beginning with his junior season, when he helped vault West Scranton to a District 2 Class AAA title, Graham landed on the recruiting radar of a who's who of Football Bowl Subdivision schools.

Pittsburgh Basketball: Panthers Who'll Take the Biggest Leap Forward in 2014-15

For the first time in what must have felt like a long time to fans, Pitt did not immediately fizzle in conference tournament play this past March, though its NCAA tournament woes continued in the round of 32. To borrow a phrase from former school official Beano Cook, the Panthers simply need "better material" in order to improve upon a fifth-place finish in the ACC and enjoy a lengthier postseason run, and they'll have to find some of it internally. While head coach Jamie Dixon tries to stretch his recruiting tentacles, he needs several of his returning players to pick up their respective games in order to make his team a better one this season.
