Senior wide receiver Devin Street is trying to lay the foundation of culture change on the Pitt football team.

A three-year starter who's on the regional covers of Sporting News and Athlon, Street has been in the middle of coaching turnover and turmoil over the past two seasons, but he said the time for making excuses is past.

“Whatever happens happens,” he said. “You have to get past it. It happened for a reason. It made us stronger.”

Street, who started assuming a leadership role in the spring, notices when others aren't accountable.

“Guys are on the right track right now,” he said. “We had some guys off the track and not really with it. I would say we are in a totally different state right now.

“No more excuses for just missing just even a light throw, even 15 minutes. If we want to be great, we have to do all the little things, too.

“Being on time for workouts, not even a minute late, because that stuff carries over. When you are not accountable for actions, you can't be successful.”
