Questions For Pitt Football Heading Into 2012

Andrea Adelson at ESPN looks into questions and answers for Pitt football heading into 2012. Hard to disagree with any of the questions (Ray Graham's return from injury, new defensive line, and, of course, Tino Sunseri's ability to be better).

She limited the questions to only three, but I'd add a couple more.

I still find Pitt's running back situation to be fascinating. With Graham, big-time freshman recruit Rushel Shell, and the emergence of Isaac Bennett in spring ball, what will Pitt do with all of those guys? I've pushed for the redshirt of Bennett if Graham and Shell can both play, but I don't know that it will happen ... in fact, I'd lean against it, but you never know.

The other question is about head coach Paul Chryst. Chryst, surprisingly, is one of Adelson's answers in that she thinks he's comfortable at Pitt. That may be true, but how he handles his first season as a head coach is certainly a bigger question an answer right now.
