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!!!
