For whatever reason the match up with Pittsburgh has me in an alliterative mood this week. As such, get your pop filters ready and please enjoy our Pitt preview plus some pretty positive memories from the past.

Of note, I referred to Adam Schefter as 'the big story of the week' and you may rightfully disagree and say the Jon Gruden emails are bigger. This is true, but who wants to give that old windbag more air time? Better to give the young windbag the spotlight instead.

Please send your angry letters to Mike McDaniel via Twitter.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the games!

My Dad graduated from Tech in 1981 and I’ve been attending Virginia Tech sporting events since I first moved to Blacksburg in 1988. I myself graduated in 2008 with a Communication degree. During my time as a student I was the Sports Director for WUVT and helped establish and run Planet Blacksburg, an independent student-run news website. I’ve since written for numerous publications including SBNation, Inside The ACC, and Sports Illustrated's AllHokies. Currently, I host The Justin Cates Show in addition to other contributions here at Sons of Saturday and various other sites as the need arises. I now live in a fortified compound in upstate New York with my wife and numerous animals. The smell of popcorn makes me think of Cassell.
