THIS IS NOT A DISTRACTION, NOPE, NOT GONNA MAKE THE TEAM FEEL ANY MORE PRESSURE THAN NECESSARY.

Fun news out of Pittsburgh this afternoon, as Pitt announced that Pat Narduzzi is finally building the wall Dave Wannstedt bragged about so many years ago. The Panthers’ head coach is banning media from practice and not allowing his players to speak to the media in advance of their game against Penn State.

If you can believe it, the local Pittsburgh media is Mad Online.

Talk to the Penn State media, buddy. They’re still treating James Franklin’s refusal to discuss injuries like it’s a repeal of the first amendment.

Yes, this precisely sums up the relationship between the Penn State media and the coach who blocked half of them on Twitter!

It’s Pitt’s biggest game in ages, their stadium will actually be full, and the crowd will viciously turn on the home team if they start slowly. Why change the routine and make the team more uptight?

Thankfully, James Franklin won’t be adopting a similar strategy.
