Some exciting news for us Pitt fans.  Another QB arrives to enter the race to replace Kenny Pickett.

Kedon Slovis transfers from USC

I had heard that Pitt was interested in him. Hopefully he can fit right in

He'll have his chance to.  Lost his starting job from injury and who knows what else out west and might've been hard to earn it back.  Then, a change in HC, and, it's off to Pgh.

From how high the kid was on USC at the beginning, I think it says something favorable that a kid would be willing to head so far to come play for the school.  He probably wouldn't do that if he didn't think well enough of the program and didn't see an oipportunity.

Pitt's not the only program that he could have considered.

Well, the season came crashing down on the Panthers last night when Nick Patti was injured.  I must say that Breville did a nice job filling in for Patti.  While they did not get their 12 wins finishing 11-3 is nothing to cry about.  I'm looking forward to spring practice to see the battle for the job of replacing Pickett.  I think Patti is in the lead but he must look out for Breville and the kid who transferred from USC.

I get the feeling that Slovis is probably leading.  If he wanted to be on the bench, he would've stayed right where he was.  A good situation to have, and that alone speaks highly of the program.  To lose a highly-regarded QB coach, yet have a decent QB willing to come across the country from a school that he would've preferred to stay is a sign that kids think well of the opportunity.

Tough to win against a good team when you're missing key kids at key positions.  So, yes, a lot to like from the season, including the couple of lessons learned along the way.  I hope that it's a good stepping stone.

It's tough when you have to play most of the game with your
third string quarterback. The timing just isn't there. The only thing that really bothered was that stupid play call in the the 4th quarter on 3rd and one.

They seem to be in pretty good shape except at Linebacker. That could change due to the transfer portal

In other news, fans in The Aloha State have found out what Pitt fans- and others- have known for decades, that Todd Graham is just bad news.

Now, he's no news, because he resigned from Hawaii while being investigated by the school for the mistreatment of players.

Maybe some school in ***a third world country*** will give him a fifteenth chance.

Talking to Bill Osborn ( former Pitt player and broadcaster) He referred to Graham as a jackass and a complete phony

That very well could be true, but it doesn't speak well of the people who were involved in hiring him.  I'll hand him this much:  he has an excellent record on offense. If an NFL team is dumb enough to hire Bill O'Brien, then I wouldn't put it past Nick Saban to hire Graham as his replacement.  Seems to be The Home For Wayward Coaches.

The AD who hired him is long gone. His offense which was called High Octane is the same as the no huddle hurry up offense. Chip Kelly tried it with the Eagles. Players hated it. One of the reasons he is gone. When he got to UCLA he modified it

Pitt was by no mean s the only school that had that lapse of judgement.  Hawaii is the most recent.  There will be a next.
