Pitt Closes Practice To Media, Blocks Player Interviews Prior To Penn State Matchup

And so it begins. Pitt officially kicked off its “rivalry” week with Penn State today when head coach Pat Narduzzi announced the Panthers’ practices will be completely closed off from the media and there will be no player interviews leading up to the highly anticipated game this week.

Narduzzi’s attempts at explaining his logic weren’t really convincing, either, and it’s starting to backfire:

Instead of trying to be the “only voice” for 112 student-athletes, maybe it would be a better idea for Pat to spend more time talking with his wife, apparently:

If you can’t make it to Heinz Field this Saturday (or if you’re Narduzzi’s wife who’s probably out of the loop) you can catch the game on ESPN. Penn State and Pitt face off for the first time in 16 years at noon.
