Chandler Kincade, a former Pitt commit... Wait for it... Commits to Akron... LOL @ sPitt
WE ARE! And we will always be...
Wow that's quite sad when a kid is picking Akron over Pitt.
Andrew_Ford7: After much thought and many prayers, I am proud to announce that I will be continuing my academics and athletics at Virginia Tech #GoHokies
Seems like a good kid. Wish him the best.

In other words, Pitt just whiffed on their top 2 realistic QB targets. Gonna be a lonnnnngggg season for them - on and off the field.
Boyd will save the season
That is a great landing spot for him.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
I hope he's happy... He's a good kid and a stud athlete... I should wish him the best, but I hate Pitt so much, Im rooting for him to have a better pro career than a college one lol I think it was a bad decision for Pitt, but hey, it's his choice.
Best of luck to Andrew Ford. Kid worked hard and got a good offer.
I think he's gonna be a heck of a QB. Kid works hard and has game
Chryst supposedly cooled on him. He didn't commit to Chryst's staff, but they said they'd honor the scholarship if he still wanted to go there. Then went out and got Chapman, which made Kinkade see the writing on the wall.
That's the story I was told, may or may not be true.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Someone said it earlier this year, Ford seemed like one of those Northwestern QBs that are a pain to play against for a few years. I think he'll have a good career at Tech.

That's about right. The new staff at Pitt wasn't all in on Kincade.
Beggars can't be choosers.
Chapman was a pretty good QB prospect, not a chump IYAM.
Doubt Chryst planned on him getting in trouble with the law his first go-around on campus.
I should grow a beard and start calling myself Fitzy...
What is Mark Stoops selling @ UK? I get that it's in the SEC... but really! They have pulled 8 kids out of Ohio.

Dang. I was hoping I could laugh at Pitt more than even before lol I will have to check out this chapman kids film. I don't normally actively hate Pitt, but moving back home and having Boyd go there has intensified the hatred.
He's a good prospect, and would fit well into what Chryst likes to do IMO.
If he's a thug I doubt he'll last long there though. Its amazing how much trash they had on that roster, and I mean character-wise, not just talent. A lot of cancerous lockerroom presences.
If you remember the name, Ray Lawry commits to Old Dominion.
Marques Little also committed to Old Dominion on Saturday.

How's ODU faired since they announced switching to FBS?
Not really sure, I think they've got a site on 247 going. They had a ton of 2* kids last year, with their highest rated recruit being an 84.
This year they've got a 4* QB rated 90 on 247 (didn't have very good offers and a Composite score of 0.8333), and now three 3* kids with a fifth commit that is unrated.
Seems like they're doing decently. I remember a number of people saying they'd be a force.
Wikipedia article attached for anyone else interested in ODU football.
Apparently they restarted the football program in 2009, and were FCS independent for 2 years. Then they joined the Colonial Athletics Association (FCS), and reached the playoffs both years, going 10-3 and 11-2.
They'll be FCS independent this year, then transition to C-USA (FBS) in 2014.
The official team has only had 5 total seasons, and never had fewer than 8 wins (9, 9, 8, 10, 11).
I think it would be interesting to follow ODU the next few years.
When they get more established, ODU will be a pain in the ass to play. Lots of talent down there.
