What the P-S Won't Tell You About...The Pittsburgh Panthers

This week's preview dives into the fascinating story of how Jake Crouthamel's incredible lack of barbeque knowledge cost us our invitation to the conference back in 2003, and how DOCTOR Gross swooped-in with a favorite local condiment to save the day.

Part five in our season-long series features our partners in the daring "Escape from Providence": The University of Pittsburgh Panthers.

In this week's preview, we profile a team that over the past decade has plainly and simply been a more successful version of ourselves. That is, they boast a proud history and high expectations, yet have a frustrating propensity to crush the spirit of their fanbase at the most inopportune time. We'll also take a graphical look at the level of excitement among our future ACC neighbors as a result of Pitt and SU's inclusion in the conference. And to cap it all off, we feature a very special message from ACC commissioner John Swofford, who gives us the REAL STORY on what went down in 2003 when we were originally barred entry into the conference, and how Wegmans Wing Sauce of all things came to our rescue! Must-read stuff indeed!
