Pittsburgh hasn't won this many games since Dan Marino was the quarterback. The only player in school history to rush for more yards in a season than freshman sensation Dion Lewis is somebody named Tony Dorsett. Thanks to a late-game rally in front of a hostile crowd, the Panthers made a strong case they've returned to prominence. Lewis rushed for 159 yards and a touchdown to move up in the record book and Dan Hutchins kicked a 33-yard field goal with 52 seconds left, giving 17th-ranked Pitt a 19-17 victory over North Carolina in the Meineke Bowl on Saturday in Charlotte, N.C. Winning 10 games for the first time since the Marino era in 1981, Pitt (10-3)

It took Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome two drafts to replenish a Super Bowl roster gutted by salary cap reality and make it playoff-caliber. In places like Miami, Chicago and Arizona, no amount of tinkering can elevate teams to Super Bowl readiness. The Miami Dolphins certainly tried last offseason. They brought in Sammy Knight, Junior Seau, Jeff Zgonina, Terrell Buckley, Derrius Thompson and Brian Griese. The result? The Dolphins missed the playoffs for the second straight year, a drought that probably will cost coach Dave Wannstedt - who has control over personnel decisions - his job this week.

Charlie Taaffe, Maryland's former offensive coordinator, has been hired as an offensive assistant at the University of Pittsburgh on an interim basis, a school spokesman confirmed today. Taaffe was hired to help the Panthers in the absence of assistant head coach Bob Junko, who had heart surgery in February and has taken a leave of absence from his on-field responsibilities. "We were fortunate to be able to gain the services of a highly knowledgeable coach in Charlie Taaffe," Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt stated in a news release.
