Pitt: Inside the ropes

Kevin Gorman
| Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2006

CRACKBACK: When freshman cornerback Jovanni Chappel intercepted a Kevan Smith pass in Tuesday's morning practice, left guard Dom Williams flattened linebacker Scott McKillop on the return.

ONE MORE TIME: Cornerback Darrelle Revis picked off a pass for the third consecutive practice yesterday morning, intercepting Tyler Palko's pass intended for Oderick Turner on a crossing pattern in the end zone.

WELCOME BACK: After returning from a one-day hiatus, T.J. Porter dazzled in the morning practice. The freshman snared a pass from Bill Stull across the middle and scored, then caught another for a touchdown.

GUS STOP: Sophomore defensive tackle Gus Mustakas made two big hits in a five-play sequence during yesterday's scrimmage. He sacked Palko, then plowed over right guard John Simonitis to drop Brandon Mason for a loss.

TRASH TALK: When tailback Kevin Collier tried to bounce through the pile on a goal-line play, linebacker H.B. Blades stopped him short and screamed, "That (stuff) don't work here."

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
