    Dec 13, 2014 | Cardiac Hill

  11. Panther of the Week: Josh NewkirkRead the original story

    Dec 7, 2014 | Cardiac Hill

    In an up and down week, Pitt split two games and made naming a Panther of the Week very difficult, but I got it done. When you have Pitt being blown out at Indiana and then taking care of Duquesne in the city game later on, it is not always going to produce one player who dominated in both games.

  14. If Matt House stays after this season, he could buy himself more time after 2015Read the original story

    Dec 6, 2014 | Cardiac Hill

    Despite what side of the fence you are on regarding football defensive coordinator Matt House, I think it can be said with an objective opinion that he's not as good as his supporters feel like and he's not as bad as his detractors like to paint him. Blaming everything solely on House as some fans seem to want to do is short-sighted.
