Pitt football’s forgettable Paul Chryst era ended at 19-20 when the Madison native returned to Wisconsin to coach the Badgers, leaving the program in the same state of mediocrity in which he found it.

Former Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi is up next to try to do what Chryst couldn’t – make Pitt football matter nationally.

Training camps are open across the NFL and dozens of rookies are trying to buck the odds and earn a roster spot, including nearly two dozen with ties to western or central Pennsylvania.

Penn State and West Virginia each landed six players on NFL training camp rosters, while Pitt placed four and the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference three.

The Steve Pederson era at Pitt is over. After the University of Pittsburgh’s athletic director position sat vacant for more than three months, Pitt plucked Scott Barnes from Utah State to replace Pederson.

Barnes takes over a solid department that for decades has never been able to rise above mediocrity. What needs to be done to get Pitt Athletics to that coveted “next level?”

Quarterback Chad Voytik threw for 177 yards and one touchdown to lead Larry Fitzgerald’s Blue Team past Aaron Donald’s Gold Team by the score of 17-10 on Saturday in the 2015 Blue-Gold Spring Game.

“The number one thing is that we came out of this game healthy,” Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi said. “Tyler Boyd and James Conner came in a little banged up, but got the reps in early.

West Virginia's Kevin White will be the first local player off the board, but Pitt's TJ Clemmings looks like a first-rounder as well. Penn State has several players expected to go in the second and third days of the draft.

The Class of 2015: PSR Top 25. Headlined by Central Valley playmaker Jordan Whitehead, Pennsylvania's Class of 2015 have made plans to attend 13 different programs.

It was a banner recruiting year, at least on paper, for Penn State coach James Franklin. Ten of PSR's top 25 seniors are headed to Penn State.

When Pat Narduzzi took over the Pitt football program, the buzz that appeared to be lost after several mediocre seasons appeared to be restored.

A talkative, scrappy looking son-of-a-coach from Youngstown preached toughness, stability and defense to a choir of fans that desperately needed to hear it.

Jordan Whitehead is a very big deal for Pitt football. The Central Valley cornerback, who committed to Pitt in October, is the No. 1 prospect in Pennsylvania by and a consensus four-star recruit.

So it would also be a very big deal if Pitt were to lose him.
