Crisan: No, this season will not be the end of Narduzzi at Pitt, but ...

Contrary to what some might want to manifest, Pat Narduzzi is not on the hot seat as a result of Pitt's 1-2 start after a drab showing from his offense in last weekend's Backyard Brawl.

That is not what the deficiencies from his 112th-ranked unit amount to. This issue, which is anticipated to compound as a result of the head coach's loyalty to his players, stems beyond that.

If the Phil Jurkovec experience blows up in his face, he has nobody but to blame but himself. And, the program will take a hit because of it in the big picture.
