Over the past 11 months, 2,397 former players have have sued the NFL over concussions, according to a review by The Washington Times of the 90 lawsuits filed through June 14. The plaintiffs, including 19 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, combined to play 168,020 NFL games.
The little team that could just might outdo itself this season.
Another tremendous regular season, another failed postseason for Pitt coach Jamie Dixon and the Panthers.
By any measure, this is the Golden Age of Pittsburgh basketball. In the last decade, the Panthers have had nine 25-win seasons, gotten to the Sweet 16 five times and become an elite member of an elite conference, the Big East.
In hindsight, the outcome should have surprised no one. From the opening tip, the Butler Bulldogs came out with more fight and energy hustle than the Pitt Panthers, and when the final horn sounded, it was Butler taking down the number one-seeded Pitt Panthers 71-70 to advance to the Sweet Sixteen.
As the top seed in the Southeast Regional, Pittsburgh is an obvious favorite over Butler.
The expanded NCAA tournament field _ now at 68 teams _ has thrown a wrinkle into the art of scouting an opponent for Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon.
The Big East schedule makers thought they booked one heck of a main event.
Ashton Gibbs hit five 3-pointers and scored 22 points, and No. 5 Pittsburgh broke open the game early Wednesday night and remained unbeaten in the Big East with a 72-57 win over No. 22 Georgetown.
A rivalry isn't truly one unless both teams realistically have a chance to win when they meet. For years, that's why the Pitt-Duquesne series was a rivalry in name only.
"When you look at Butler, you definitely have to respect them a little bit more," Pittsburgh forward Gilbert Brown said Friday.
"It may actually benefit us. We thrive being in an underdog role, when people don't expect us to succeed," Brown said. "It plays in our heads. We want to go out there and prove everybody wrong."
