I'm not a Pitt homer, but I'm a fan of Narduzzi. I thought he was a great hire. Now let's see how long you keep him.

I think we will keep him for a long time - provided he's a good to great coach. He grew up in Youngstown and he professes that coaching in Pittsburgh is basically like him coming home. The distance between both cities is 66.6 miles.

Someone need to either add or subtract a tenth of a mile from that distance.

I hope he stays at Pitt for the long haul. If he continues to do well, I can see some larger programs throwing a little cash his way.

We have a new administration that is willing to spend money. Narduzzi was quoted as saying what made Pitt attractive was we were willing to give him the resources to hire a staff that will allow him to be successful.

To followup on what Joey said:

There's also the 107k and unrivaled hashtags as well as some back and forth between between assistant coaches John Peterson of Pitt and PSU's Herb Hand this summer on twitter.

Can't wait for Penn Staters to complain about all of the the press Pitt has been getting lately in Pittsburgh.

Well, Pitt won't face Temple during the regular season (and not likely in a bowl either), but they will have a common opponent soon - Notre Dame (both at home, too).

RE: Pat Narduzzi tweaks Penn State
I can't believe that is true about Franklin. That is insane behavior for a coach. I don't know if he's trying to be funny, or show that he's wild, but that comes off incredibly small time.

No offense to Pitt, but if I'm Penn State's coach, I'm (publicly) acting like they don't exist, not doing something so odd as that to validate them. Just bizarre.

I love Narduzzi's comment, the ACC could afford to be a bit more salty. If Narduzzi is the real deal, he may have a pretty good window of opportunity, for as good a recruiter as Franklin is, I don't think he has distinguished himself much as a coach. As "historic" as his "success" at Vandy was, his record was almost entirely built on beating terrible teams, and is largely smoke and mirrors. There's always the "but it's Vandy!" argument, and he certainly improved them, but I'm not so sure he's not over his head at Penn State.
