Mike’d Up: Has Past Criticism Been Fair to Pat Narduzzi?
This episode of Mike’d Up focuses on the futures of three head coaches – Pat Narduzzi, James Franklin and Mike Tomlin. Mike Asti and Mike Vukovcan first discuss if people been too hard on Narduzzi before comparing how Tomlin and Franklin are handling being in rumors.
Mike’d Up is presented by Pittsburgh Sports Live.
If you dump provocateur Tim Benz from the discussion I think the criticism of Coach Narduzzi has reflected the progress of his team. On the positive side: he has upped recruiting, has dealt with assistant coaches leaving or needing to be replaced, and has developed players that didn’t have the highest ranking coming out of high school.
Finally, we are in a position to have a nine or ten-win season. Let’s enjoy it.
Please explain how Narduzzi’s recruiting has improved? Only one recruit in Pa top 25 ..also continuing to miss out on the top talent in the WPIAL? Unless Pitt totally falls apart he bought himself a couple more seasons. A bigger problem not Narduzzi’s fault is lack of attendance at Heinz Field. Big game with Clemson and the stadium is not filled . , I was at the game maybe 45000 to 50000 not the announced 600000+. Pitt is going to have to address this problem which definitely hurts recruiting.
Heinz holds 69K so there were 55-60K in attendance for Clemson. To say there were 45K is insane.
Past criticism was well deserved, this is 1 season lets not get ahead of ourselves.
Today’s game proved it was deserved, why did not the head coach tell his jabroni OC TO RUN THE BALL MORE THAN 13 PLAYS IF IN FACT THEY DID RUN THAT MANY. At some point, the head coach has to be the freakin head coach,
