Two quick updates

CB Sean Draper chose Iowa over Pitt and Louisville.

LB Bam Bradley is down to Pitt and Arizona after Stanford got mad at him for visiting Arizona.

Added note: Bradley just tweeted "Burgh Gang or Die".  Don't ask me what it means exactly.

  1. I blame all this stuff on pederson's ineptness of hiring coaches in the first place, I like Chryst alot but he has his work cut out for him.
    Too much bad publicity over this year and last year's coaching fiasco.
    Think we will be ok but could have been a lot better.

  3. There is nothing I love more than Bradley's tweets. Though, the 'Pederson is the Devil and the reason for all the world's troubles' is quickly approaching legendary status. Where do people come up with some of this stuff, Doke?

    Anyways, I think that means he is all Pitt.

  4. I was hoping for a little better showing then Chryst has had so far, but next year is the true test to see how he and his staff will be as recruiters.

  5. It looks like Rippy and Pankey will select Pitt..

    This is based upon numbers at WVU. WVU has 26 committs and has 22 to give per my count!! Don't think they have room for 2 more!

    1. JoeD, if the hoopies like a kid more than one of the roster incumbents, they simply cut someone. Cruel but true.

      Just like Pitt hoops did last year with J.R. Richardson, with Dwight (whats-his-name) the year before, etc.

      In other words, if WVU doesn't have room, they can simply make room as long as they stay under 85 total.

    2. True,
      but they also get concerned about graduation rates that the NCAA wants them to maintain or they lose scholarships... it is a balancing act.
      But 4 seems like a lot to cut in my opinion... and that would mean they would need to cut 6 to make room for Rippy and Pankey..
      I don't see that happening...

  6. Was Draper any good? And, did we really need another CB?

  7. Can never have enough corners. He was not elite, but he was pretty good.

  9. I wouldn't go that far. It's never a sure thing until they actually sign tomorrow.

  10. I'm disappointed we couldn't pull out the 2 DL from Ohio. Henry who went to MIchigan and I guess we are still in the running for Jackson or is it Jarrett? Whoever the guy that was going to Michigan State but was told to look elsewhere. HOpe we land him.

  11. Jackson is between Pitt and Illinois.
