Twitter Reaction To Pat Narduzzi/Michigan State Rumors

Twitter Reaction To Pat Narduzzi/Michigan State Rumors

From the day he accepted the Pitt job in 2015, people have wondered when the Michigan State head coaching job became open, would Pat Narduzzi be interested in it?

I guess we could find out the answer to that question as longtime Spartans coach Mark Dantonio announced his retirement today after serving as Michigan State’s head coach for the past 13 seasons.

Pat Narduzzi is scheduled to speak tomorrow on February National Signing Day and will no doubt be asked about it. Until then, Twitter has been buzzing with reaction to the Dantonio news and if Narduzzi could be a realistic candidate.

It would be comforting to hear from Pat Narduzzi that Pitt is It at this time.

I got a good laugh reading comments from Michigan State fans in response to Coach Narduzzi’s latest tweet. Some unfortunately chose to trash talk which is hilarious when you consider the greats that have played at Pitt compared to the mediocrity that’s existed at Michigan State. Save your breath Spartans because your football tradition doesn’t remotely compare to Pitt’s tradition. Stop embarrassing yourselves.

Pitt’s “football tradition” pretty much ended with the 1983 season. Since ’83, Pitt football has been the definition of mediocrity with a 213-213-5 record over the subsequent 36 years. Pitt athletics would be better suited in the American Athletic Conference. The only reason Narduzzi would be foolish enough to stay at Pitt is if they give him personal check writing access from the University’s $3.5 billion endowment.

After Chancellor Posvar, athletics were not a priority. Chancellor Nordinberg stressed building the school’s academics and endowment, $4B. Because of this Chancellor Gallagher has the flexibility to focus on building an academic and athletic powerhouse.

I was speaking of the Pitt football tradition in it’s entirety. You’re speaking about a period of time where the focus on the program was lost for a time. The proper focus has returned to the program and even taking your point into consideration it doesn’t change the fact that Pitt has 9 national championships along with 9 pro football hall of Famers with around 3 more pro hall of Famers likely to come in the not very distant future. So if we’re going to talk about traditions let’s look at those traditions in their entirety and not in selected… Read more »

I would venture to guess that you probably wouldn’t attempt to argue that the Steelers don’t have a great football tradition simply because they didn’t win much during a certain period of time early on in their existence. That’s why it’s important to talk about traditions in their entirety and not in convenient chopped up segments that fit your desired narrative.

More importantly:

Who are the 2 new recruits?

Probably flipped the kicker and picked up a grad transfer OL.

The kicker Ben Sauls has summitted the paperwork, he’s a Panther and possibly a corner from Georgia. See you tonight at the NLI event.
