Pat Narduzzi tweaks Penn State
Asked about the development of Nate Petermen, Narduzzi talked about coaching the kid up. When a followup question about how much coaching matters, Narduzzi said, "You could have a talented quarterback with a bad play caller and make him look bad. You see that around the country, some closer than others."

It has hit the national media. When asked about the intent of the comment, Pitt's communication director tweeted this:

.@PittBorghetti on Pat Narduzzi’s QB quote: “People can draw their own conclusions as to whom the shoe best fits"

Narduzzi isn't taking any crap from Franklin. Franklin frequently calls into Pitt's flagship radio station as "James from State College" during Pitt segments to try to change the subject to Penn State.

Love the attitude this coach brings.

I enjoy seeing comments such as this from Narduzzi, even if they aren't PC.

As for Franklin, am I understanding you correctly that Franklin himself frequently calls a Pittsburgh radio station to try and prank them? If I was a PSU fan I *might* find that funny once. After that, I'd be wondering if he could find a better use of time considering the two teams PSU has played this year that have a pulse both drilled them.

Franklin doesn't necessarily try to prank 93.7 The Fan. He just calls in and pretends to be a fan just to pimp PSU.

That is incredibly lame.

To be fair, he only does it when he is in Western PA recruiting. But he still does it. To be sure, Narduzzi is turning up the heat on the recruiting battles.

It is what it is. Both coaching staff's take subtle shots at each other on Twitter. PSU runs with the DominateTheState hashtag. It can be entertaining. Shitz going to be wild leading up to the game next fall.

I agree... One of my least favorite coaches.

+2 if my feelings weren't already made clear above. From what Shannon says, I'm guessing he's riding around in his car listening to local sports talk radio while recruiting in Western PA, but I still find that strange public behavior for a head coach.

I've heard it. It was weird. I was under the impression he did it once, though, not multiple times. Still weird.

As for what Narduzzi said, I like it because I'm a Pitt fan and a homer. If it was somebody else, I'd probably not feel the same way. I usually think Franklin is stupid when he runs his mouth.
