09:03 AM ET 07.02 | The Pitt football team got some much-needed depth for its offensive backfield Thursday with the addition of Zach Brown, a transfer from Wisconsin. Brown, a fifth-year senior, has graduated from Wisconsin and is eligible to play for the Panthers this season. The addition of Brown could be critical for Pitt, which would have entered the season with no experienced running backs behind junior Ray Graham.

I think that they are going to be tuff to beat no matter what. Glad the kid landed at a good school. I wish we had a little more depth at R.B.

So is this the newest trend? Jumping around schools until you get PT? ....the college version of play me or trade me...

I started to transfer when a certain young man came to school that now has a trophy named after him, but my dad and Dr. Tom reminded me of the commitment that I had made. Glad for good parenting and coaching.

Never understood why Tony D and Marino aren't more involved in Pitt recruiting.

They should be, it might be like when Callahan came to N.U. he would not let us old dudes in the front door, guess he forgot about tradition. Now it is wide open if you an alum you in.

I've got a lot of respect for players who "give back" to their school after they move on.

Jet Terry (Mavericks) continues to recruit for his alma mater and says his dream is to coach there after his NBA days are finished.

You said the "C" word.
He had no clue about tradition. I would have thought Petersen would have understood that but then again he did hire a guy from the disfunctional Al Davis family.

I by no means am a big name x player but I try and do everything I can for N.U. The life I have now is in a large part due to the education I got on and off the field.

You said the "C" word - So very sorry my bad.

+1...This thread sort of bears out the idea that these guys only see the NFL as a way to advance themselves. If they feel they aren't getting the PT they deserve, they bolt for another roster, but at what cost to their education? Sure, some of them have "graduated" already but if you can't be a feature player where you are, are you going to suddenly be that much more noticeable elsewhere?
