Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Friday Wakeup Call: One, done and homeward bound

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

SALT LAKE CITY – Morning, lunatics …


>> The Friday column focuses on hard questions Jamie Dixon must face in light of yet another grisly tournament failure for Pitt, this one the worst of them all

Here’s beat writer Kevin Gorman’s game story focusing on Tray Woodall’s nightmare, my sidebar on Steven Adams’ possible breakout and Kevin’s notebook covering Wichita We Hardly Knew Ye State.

Also, our final video from up here in the hills …

We’re all flying home today, so I’ll be out of touch pretty much all day.

>> The chat transcript got into stuff other than Pitt, so some of it will still apply. We had some Steelers, Penguins and Pirates, too. Alas,  no Robert Morris entries. A bit surprising.

>> Evgeni Malkin might make his return tonight on Long Island. I’ll actually be more interested to see how the team handles the Islanders’ system-what-system style of play.

>> I’ll have a final Pitt column in Sunday’s paper, then check out Penguins-Flyers that night. Be good!
