It's time for another Pitt-focused installment of City of Champions Radio, as host Matt Gajtka welcomes staff writer Brett Tunno to discuss the Panthers men's basketball team. It's been a down year by Jamie Dixon's standards, but Pitt still has a shot at squeezing into the NCAA tournament for the third straight season - and 13th time in 14 years. Who has impressed and who has disappointed for these Panthers, who have rallied to win six of eight and have three regular-season games remaining before the crucible of the ACC tournament.
The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview John Malecki.
He was named to the Big East All-Academic Football Team. After the 2008 season, He was selected as the Pittsburgh Panthers Most Improved Offensive Player. He was often known to enjoy civil war reenactments in the lawns of the Cathedral of Learning.
He played for the following teams in the NFL: Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Bucs, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Washington Redskins.
The Burgh Brew Interview series rolls on with Pitt Panthers football talk, as City of Champions Radio host Matt Gajtka welcomes staff writer Brett Tunno to the program. The guys discuss the encouraging start for Paul Chryst's team and what it might mean for the rest of Pitt's second season in the ACC. What can we expect from the dynamic offensive duo of James Conner and Tyler Boyd? Can the defense keep it up after a strong effort at Boston College? What are some potential stumbling blocks for the Panthers down the road? Matt and Brett mull over these topics and more, including a quick look at Pitt basketball and where the program is headed.
The Titans put togeher an impressive performance to win a shootout against the Saints in Mike Mularkey's first game as the new head coach, but getting his second win could be much tougher against the undefeated Carolina Panthers this Sunday.

The Carolina Panthers are one of four undefeated teams entering week nine in the NFL season. The Green Bay Packers were dominated on national television by the Denver Broncos, last Sunday. The loss was the first for the Packers as they travel to Carolina. They only passed for 77 yards and rushed for 90; however 31 of those yards came from the legs of Aaron Rodgers. The Bronco offense carved up the Packers defense for 500 yards.
After being punched in the face, the Packers face a tough test in Carolina. The Panthers rank ninth in yards allowed (342.6) and seventh in points allowed (19.4). Evan will tell you that the sack statistic is over-rated, and that could be the case for the Panthers. Although tied for eigth, in the league with 20 sacks it seems like there is always a Panther pressuring a quarterback. Rodgers was harrassed from the start, in Denver, and the offensive line needs to play better. Mike McCarthy and Tom Clements will have to find a game plan that will get the receivers into space.
The Packers defense looked confused at times and need to concentrate on some fundamental defense. They have struggled against the zone read, and Cam Newton is a mamouth of man when he runs. In one week, the defense will need to figure out how to play discipline defense and realize their gap responsibility. The Packers defense is aggressive and have allowed other teams to look good when they miss tackles. The Panthers lost Kelvin Benjamin in the preseason and their leading receiver is tight end Greg Olsen (33 receptions, 518 yards, 4 touchdowns). Ted Ginn, Jr. is the Panthers leading receiver with 20 receptions. In comparision, the Packers have three receivers with more receptions. The Panthers will try to establish the running game with James Stewart, who has rushed for 505 yards and three touchdowns.
Join us at 10pm ET to discuss all the latest Carolina Panthers news and game results.
We will look at the Turkey Day games.
The best team in football gets no respect.
Could Pats actually run out of players?
Injuries are getting worse it seems. And some are non-contact injuries. Is it hurting the fans too or helping the standings?
In Denver, is Brock the new Peyton?
And we will look at religion in football. Is the NFL the No Faith League?
And ESPN pissed at Johnny Football.
And some coaches may be getting off on a Trojan horse or a Bayou Bengal.
And what is up with the referees?
As always our expert is Eric Snyder. He is the author of a book on the Raiders and Raider Nation. You can hear him on the Power Hour on 1340 Fox Sports Radio in Las Vegas.
Let’s play Fraud or Real or Pretender Contender? Packers Texans Cowboys
Pokes get the 10-0 Panthers but the Cowboys at 3-7 are favorites over the undefeated Panthers. As I said in the beginning, has anyone watched this team? I got the Panthers in a romp.
Bears go to Lambeau to play resurgent Packers. Plus they’re retiring Brett Favre’s number. I have to go with Pack.
A number of new injuries are affecting games this week. Peyton is still out. Flacco is gone for the season – and maybe longer. Are these injuries hurting the fans or helping?
Join the LA Kings Road Talk Radio Crew with Hipcheck, OC Hockey Legend Matt Sellwood, LA Kings Superfan Augie & Sexy Steve Soeffner as well talk all things Los Angeles Kings hockey as our beloved Kings take on the Florida Panthers in the fourth game of our five game road swing. Kings are looking to keep the road mojo going strong and potentially make it a Sunshine State Sweep against old friend and all around good guy Willie Mitchell. Remember, when it happens on the road-we will be here to talk about it all season long on the radio show you have come to know and love- the legendary LA Kings Road Talk Radio.
Please join us Sunday at 10AM CST as we converse with Daryl Bates & Dr. Keisha Pitt, founders of The New Black Codes.
We began The New Black Codes after realizing that our community was in serious peril. With the media in frenzy over the recent crimes against our community, we decided that something had to be done, and done now! We didn’t want to just sign a petition or talk within our family and friends about all the issues our community has. We believed our community needed real change. We researched the statistics on our wealth, assets, family life, and health compared to other racial groups. The results were so alarming we got to work right away. We believe this change can only come with improving all of these categories. We cannot play victims any longer because the laws keeping us back has been removed. We now must be the players in this game.
Besides thriving to improve our community, personally we enjoy spending time with our family and friends. Dr. Keisha Pitt is a successful chiropractor and Daryl Bates is a thriving business owner. Both have a love for learning and charity.
