U mad, bro? Pitt fans come out in droves to defend Pat Narduzzi

September 25, 2018

Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi during practice Aug. 2018 at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

In “U Mad, Bro?” this week, I got lots of fan mail from Oakland about my Pat Narduzzi column. Steelers fans like punting. Pirates fans hate stats.

Pitt fans don’t show up in large numbers at Heinz Field. But they sure do on Twitter when you post something critical. Last week, I suggested that Penn State’s James Franklin being called “overrated” in a CBS Sports poll was incorrect. But I said Pat Narduzzi is overrated within his own team’s fan base.

That didn’t go over well with Pitt fans.
