Campus Chatter: A much-needed rest period awaits

OK, enough of our readers were vocal that they wanted a place to track and talk about their favorite colleges. So, here it is.

Before a game played by Pitt, Duquesne or Robert Morris, we'll offer all the trappings of a standard live file, all the broadcast info, media notes, ticket info and everything else. Once they're done, we'll connect to coverage directly from those schools, including multimedia. We'll also adjust to include football, other sports and other schools, notably Penn State and West Virginia, as circumstances and seasons warrant.

Basically, this will be here all the time.

Let's get some good talk going before and after these games, but especially during. Feel free to add your own news and updates, in addition to thoughts. The burden here will be on the commenting above all else. I'll get it started, but you've got to get it going and keep it going.

The early part of the week is calm — and that's probably a good thing for Pitt.

Since upsetting Florida State Jan. 14, the Panthers have lost nine in a row, putting them at 12-14 overall and 2-11 in the ACC. They currently occupy last place in the conference.

They'll get back in action Wednesday at Georgia Tech at 9:00 p.m. We'll have more on that as we approach tipoff.

Elsewhere in Steel City hoops, Duquesne looks to make it two wins in a row Saturday when they face George Mason, while Robert Morris attempts to shake off a three-point defeat against St. Francis PA Thursday, when they take on LIU Brooklyn.

For now, vent. Express hope. Discuss what you think the teams need moving forward, particularly Pitt. We'll check back in shortly.
