Pittsburgh Panthers Football 2008 Preview



Just wanted to take this time to post a short preview about the upcoming college football season for my alma mater, the University of Pittsburgh Panthers. I am feeling very confident about this season, as are a lot of people, as evidenced by the #25 ranking to start the season in the AP poll. One of only 2 teams to start the season in the top 25 that had less than 8 wins last season. We had our 3rd straight top 25 recruiting class this season, and I expect that to start paying off on the field this season. We all know about the All-American candidate, LeSean McCoy. What you may not know is that he is actually my father. With Derek Kinder coming back from missing last season with a torn ACL at receiver, and Jonathan Baldwin, one of the top freshman WR's in the country, I think we will be extremely solid on offense. The defense is led by Scott McKillop, our middle linebacker, another preseason All-American. Not many know he led the nation in tackles last season, this guy is all over the ball.


Either way, it should be a good, fun season, we will definitely challenge for the Big East title, and a berth in a BCS game. Good games against Iowa, South Florida, Louisville, Notre Dame, and West Virginia highlight the schedule. I can see a 9-3 season from us this season, and challenging for the Big East title. First game is at home vs. Bowling Green, Saturday August 30. McCoy for Heisman, LET'S GO PITT!!!

any team where the best player is nicknamed shady, is a team for me. Pitt all the way bitches. To hell with Paterno and his dumb-ass PSU.

WE ARE! (5-0) PENN STATE! How's Pitt doing? Yeah, that's right. Once again Pitt is overrated. Now, I'm a PSU fan but I will tell you that while they look really good, I still feel they will lose to Ohio State and Wisconsin is a toss up. But clearly PSU is the class of Pennsylvania. Suckers.
