Earlier this week, Pitt announced its schedule for the football team's spring practices. These things aren't like training camp in the fall, so the same type of in-depth reports can't be expected. In fact, media can only take in a half hour per practice so while some news will break, it won't be to the same volume as in the fall camp.
In all, the Panthers will have 15 practice sessions beginning this weekend and ending with the spring game on April 18th. As always, practices are closed to the general public. Whether any of us here get down there at all or not is up in the air.
While we won't be able to see all of the practices, there are several storylines out there where hopefully some info will trickle out:
- Quarterback 'battle' with starter Chad Voytik and backup Nathan Peterman
- Will anyone emerge as the No. 2 wide receiver opposite Tyler Boyd?
- Who steps up at linebacker to begin the process of replacing starters Todd Thomas and Anthony Gonzalez?
- How will Pat Narduzzi and the new staff run practices?
- How does the offensive line gel with the departures of T.J. Clemmings and Matt Rotheram?
Position battles will still be alive and well in the fall and while the spring may give guys a jump on things, we'll still have a long way to go.
