ACC coaches (anonymously) talk Pitt football

New, 5 comments

Athlon has done these in the past and they've got another installment of ACC coaches talking anonymously about the other teams in the conference. That, of course, included Pitt.

Coaches were still a bit tight-lipped and weren't too inflammatory, but a few did offer some interesting thoughts about the Panthers.

The offensive line was the topic of a couple of coaches. Predictably, neither was all that impressed with what they saw from the team last year in that regard:

Coach 1: "On the offensive line, they were decent but not the kind of maulers you’d expect from a Pitt team."…

Coach 2: "I wasn’t as high on the offensive line as you might think. They are pretty big and physical and run to the ball, but they aren’t really scaring you"….

You can check out what else the coaches had to say about Pitt over on Athlon's site, and also see what they said about the other programs in the conference as well.

We'll see how things turn out on the offensive line this season. Returning most of their starters (all five if you count Dorian Johnson, who got some starting time last year), the unit almost has to be a little better simply by default. But it's clear that other coaches still think they have some work to do there.
