Most of these probably deserve their own post, but with so much going on right now that's a challenge. Here's what's going on:
- Jabaal Sheard was named an All-American by the AFCA (head coaches). A huge honor and likely just the beginning of Sheard's post-season accolades. Sheard faced constant double-teams and still delivered on 12.5 tackles for loses and nine sacks.
- Dave Wannstedt had his weekly presser yesterday and to the surprise of no one, blamed turnovers for the WVU loss. You can read the highlights here. The AP has a story about Wannstedt's job security - a clear indication that it's not just crazy Pitt fans who think he could be in trouble. Bob Smizik has a thoughtful piece on weighing the reasons to fire him or keep him.
- Pitt Blather went through positional coaches who could be sacrificed after the season and - surprisingly - there aren't too many.
- TCU's invitation has led to despair in Memphis and cautious optimism in Orlando.
- Pitt basketball will play in the NIT Tipoff Classic next season, which means another trip to Madison Square Garden. This year's tournament included UCLA, Tennessee, Villanova, Wake Forest and Nevada. The Oakland Zoo has the scoop in their relaunched website.
- Paul Zeise has new Red Shirt Diaries with a lot of good tidbits, including why it might be better for Pitt to lose against Cincinnati on Saturday. (And in case you missed it, that game will be at noon)
