Right Tackle Options Outside Steeltown

We have looked at the options inside the organization for a replacement for Willie Colon, but they don”t seem to please the coaches since it took them less the 24 hours to get a free agent into town for a visit.  We have some capable guys.  It’s just that they have no experience or depth. […]

Colon Injury More Serious then First Thought

Willie Colon’s injury is apparently more severe than first thought.  Reports coming out today suggest that 9 to 12 months is a more realistic time frame than the original 4-6.  That is a huge blow for Willie.  If it were only 4 to 6 months, he would have plenty of time to get himself back […]


Pitt Football Commits – The Weekend Rundown

With the Panthers picking up two more 2011 commitments this weekend in the form of highly touted defensive tackle Marquise Wright and Woodland Hills star Lafayette Pitts, it is definitely worth taking a break from the Steeler and Pirate chatter to see just how these two players are going to fit into the program.

Penguins Day 1 Draft Recap

With day 1 of the 2010 NHL draft in the books, the Penguins seem to be pretty satisfied with the their results. I can’t say I’m in total agreement however, as Shero and the Pens may have reached a bit with the 20th over all selection when they selected 18 year old RW Beau Burnett.
