I doubt Taylor Lewan will enter the 2013 draft.

Same with Hankins, it's just their top 50.

If Lewan is going to be graded as a 1st rounder (especially a top 10 pick), I don't know if he can really turn down entering the draft.

How many non-Andrew Luck projected top 10 picks go back for their senior seasons?

They just have too much to lose to not declare if that's where their draft status stands.

With Hankins, I'm sure Meyer will convince him to stay for this...

Mendy has never been embraced by fans but he's easily the most gifted back of the three and we've seen him run the way he's capable. If he could stay healthy and develop a consistent mental approach, he could be a top 5 back in the NFL.

I don't like using a first-round pick on a RB because there are so many capable players. I like Dwyer and Ike is what he is (which is "not better than Mendy or Dwyer") but I like him too. They could certainly man the position for the Steelers, but it'd be a step down in ability.

Yea redman is nothing special. Mendenhall is insanely skilled, and if this line stays run blocking how it is, you'll see a ton of production out of him.

He's also the only homerun hitter out of the backfield other than rainey. Redman and dwyer are too slow. I'd re-sign Mendy short term and let redman walk this offseason. Mendy, dwyer, rainey is more than good enough.

Redman is not better than Mendenhall. Not by a long shot.

NFL has fined Steelers & WR Emmanuel Sanders a total of $50,000 for CrampGate. Fine is for Sanders' faking a cramp in Oct. 21 game in CIncy

I am a Uconn fan, but this team is bad and the coaching is horrendous. The defense has been awesome but the offense has been absolutely abysmal. I know it's the first drive but what on earth is going on with the Pitt Defense? I am at the point where I want this coach and OC gone so having the offense look anything other than inept would only give fuel to keeping these boobs around longer than they need to be.... so step it up Pitt.

Looks like after the meltdown against ND, Pitt has just decided to give up on the season. Reflects poorly on the coaching staff.

That play epitomizes the Tino Sunseri era. On the UConn 39, last play of the half, get sacked, clock runs out, had 2 timeouts left.

Time management.

I am just baffled at this, it has to be Pitt being horrible because I just don't believe for a second that this Uconn staff got their crap together. You can't teach an old dog new tricks and these two coaches on Uconn are oooooooolllllllllllddddd dogs.

Now, I won't give up entirely Pitt fans. Uconn jumped out to a similar lead in the first half against Temple and then in fitting fashion the coaching staff took their foot off the gas and let Temple get back into the game only to lose to them in overtime.
