Fun With Numbers…Pitt vs. Penn State

Filed under: Football,Numbers — Fear the Stache @ 4:52 pm

It has been 7 days since it was announced that Pitt and Penn State will renew their rivalry for 2 years in 2016 and 2017.  We’ve had 7 days to ponder the arrogance of Penn State AD Tim Curley’s comments on 93.7 The Fan and 7 days to discuss the reasons the series won’t last longer than 2 seasons.  We’ve heard Pitt needs Penn State to fill Heinz Field, Penn State needs a true rival, Penn State can’t do home-home series because it is in a tight “financial” situation (which doesn’t happen if you promote something other than Women’s Volleyball as your #2 sport), Pitt isn’t a worthy opponent for Penn State, JoePa refuses to play Pitt, along with many others tall tales.  Fellow babysitters, The Incline Blog Staff, even their take on this the other day right here at Pitt Blather.

But that is not why we are here today.  Today, we’ll look beyond these issues and examine the finer details surrounding the rivalry since it last took place on September 16, 2000. (more…)

UPDATED: The Price is Right

Filed under: Football,Recruiting — Victory Lights @ 9:45 am

Officially Official:


Before I get to this brief post I wanted to say thank you to Chas for an opportunity to blog on his site.  Hopefully he knew what he was getting into…

Over the weekend it was learned that 4-star LB Ejuan Price from Woodland Hills had asked to be released from his scholarship at Ohio State.  Immediately everyone started talking about whether or not Price would be coming home to Pitt.

It appears to be unofficially official that Price is coming home..  Today the Post-Gazette reported that Woodland Hills coach George Novak stated Pitt has a scholarship for Price and had this to say:

“Pitt is where he wants to go,” Novak said. “Hopefully, he can get all the paper work together and get enrolled in summer classes there.”

Well that’s encouraging,  how can I help get him enrolled in summer classes?  Actually, he can take my summer classes for me if it helps get him here sooner.  For anyone who doesn’t know about Price  here is a quick blurb about the 4-star line backer from

“Price is a devastating tackler who has a very quick first step and closes fast on the ball carrier. He sheds blocks and plays well in traffic. Price moves well laterally tracking down ball carriers sideline to sideline.”

The only negative they have to list about him is his size, specifically only being 5’11” or 6′ tall.  That’s the only negative?  I’ll take it.  I was going to insert a bad photoshop of Bob Barker punching Happy Gilmore with Jim Tressel’s head in this post but really, should you kick someone when they’re down?

Hopefully there will be something officially official soon regarding Price and Pitt, and when it is released hopefully it will be good news.  Only 74 more days till kickoff.  These 74 days “must go faster.”

Small update to the original article as I just saw this tweet:
