Pitt’s running game has been nothing special this season, with no back gaining more yards in a game than the 66 Vincent Davis accumulated against Syracuse.

The line has protected Pickett well, lifting Pitt to fourth in the ACC in average sacks allowed per game (two). But the running game is 12th (130.5 yards).

Narduzzi told reporters Thursday, “I don’t think the offensive line is as bad as you guys think it is.

That brings this discussion to Pitt’s Dave Borbely, one of the most respected and experienced offensive line coaches in college football. He hasn’t missed a season as a full-time coach since 1985, and before that he was a graduate assistant under Johnny Majors at Tennessee.

“Two things happen on good teams,” he said. “Players tend to blame themselves. Coaches tend to blame themselves. I think both parties are correct.”
