    Rubash: Davey Jones locker and the Pittsburgh Pirates

    by Jeremiah Rubash

    After a week of soul searching, I can’t blame fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates if they feel like Clark Griswold in Christmas Vacation. Feeling excited about their Christmas bonus but instead, their cheap boss mails them a “jelly of the month” certificate. Truth is, Pirates fans proverbial bonus should have come either in the middle of their 98 wins during the 2015 season, or in the offseason following. Instead, the 2015-16 winter saw Pedro Alvarez walk out of town for nothing, and Neil Walker traded for Jon Niese, added to the...

  • Preview: Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Duke Blue Devils

    by Cody Flavell

    Ten days removed from the first meeting between teams, No. 5 Duke (16-2, 4-2 ACC) hosts the Pitt Panthers (8-11, 0-6 ACC) at Cameron Indoor Stadium at 4 p.m. and will be broadcast on WTAE locally. The first meeting didn’t go so well as the Blue Devils clearly outmatched the Panthers on their way to an easy 87-52 victory. The meeting was only merely 10 days ago. Things haven’t changed much on the teams’ status. The Panthers enter this game having used 14 different starting lineups in their 19 games, the most in the NCAA. Freshmen...

    Colonials in command: RMU takes down Sacred Heart, 74-60

    by Jeremiah Rubash

    Robert Morris (12-8, 6-1) cruised to a wire to wire road win against Sacred Heart (7-13, 2-5) Thursday evening. It was the Colonials second straight road victory. After struggling for periods during the previous two games, Robert Morris had no such trouble with the home-standing Pioneers. A hotter start not yet seen this season, the Colonials quieted the home crowd with a 14-0 run to start the game. Providing the jump start was Junior Matty McConnell, who had six of the early 14 points. The Colonials filled the basket at a ridiculous pace in the...

Instead, the 2015-16 winter saw Pedro Alvarez walk out of town for nothing, and Neil Walker traded for Jon Niese, added to the back end of the 2016 rotation with Ryan Vogelsong. Not exactly the number four and five starters of any championship rotation in recent memory. The Pirates finish under .500 in 2016 and out of the...

Steelers name Randy Fichtner offensive coordinator

It didn’t take long for the Pittsburgh Steelers to find Todd Haley’s replacement. Only a day after announcing Haley would not return for a seventh season as the team’s offensive coordinator, the Steelers announced that Randy Fichtner would take the role. Fichtner has served as the quarterback coach since 2010. However, he has been with the organization since 2007,...
