In theory, there might be a reason to tell a commit that if he is making the commitment, then he should not still be taking recruiting trips to other schools. This despite the fact that a verbal commitment is non-binding. One of those reasons might be a promise by the coach of the program not to recruit any more players at the same position.  A show of good faith by both sides.

But when you are  a program getting ready to leap from the Big East to the Big Ten. When you are a coach that has seen strained relations with your local recruits and some of the coaches in the area. You might want to be a little more flexible.

Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood is not that kind of flexible. It has cost him a few de-commits this year with his belief that recruits need to shut down visits even as he keeps recruiting others. Back in November, that cost him Adonis Jennings.

Pitt was the source of the rift then, as Jennings took an unofficial visit to Pitt for the Notre Dame-Pitt game. Pitt was the final beneficiary last night.

Like many local sportswriters, I found myself slogging through the Semper Fi All-Star Game just for the announced decision of Jennings and his quotes.

“First off, I’d like to thank every program that gave me a chance to attend their university. I’d like to thank my parents for their love and support and the coaches as well for coaching me to be the best I can,” said Jennings. “For the next four years, I’ll be attending the University of Pittsburgh.”

Jennings went on the explain the reason why he selected Pitt, although he had yet to take an official visit there.

“I think I fit well in that offense,” he said. “I’m gonna come in ready to compete and that’s all it comes down to.”

Jennings’ “official” visit to Pitt is scheduled for next Friday.

Obviously, there is an expectation that Jennings will be able to come in as a freshman and compete to start opposite Tyler Boyd.

Timber Creek coach Rob Hinson said Jennings, who also attracted offers from Clemson, Virginia Tech and Arizona, has attended and dominated many of the top camps in the nation. Jennings set a Timber Creek record for receiving yards this season (1,434) in New Jersey’s second-largest classification.

Hinson believes Jennings can be successful in college.

“He is a very explosive wide receiver,” Hinson said. “He is physical, polished. He has a lot to learn, but on the high school level, he’s pretty much unguardable. When he gets one-on-one matchups, he can dominate.”

Now after the Maryland-Pitt basketball game (I’ll be getting to it soon), there is the whole BCS Championship game. Since ESPN loves overkill they are doing a multi-platform, multi-media spectacle. One of which will include the “BCS Film Room.”

“BCS Film Room” on ESPNEWS will feature Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, Louisville coach Charlie Strong and Boston College coach Steve Addazio as well as ESPN analysts Matt Millen, Chris Spielman and Tom Luginbill providing in-depth X and O analysis of the game as it happens from a film room equipped with multiple camera angles and touchscreens.

Well, Charlie Strong begged off after taking the Texas job. Coach Paul Chryst is taking over the spot. So if you want to see/listen to Coach Chryst talk football this is the channel to watch. I admit, this has me a bit intrigued.

I’m putting the 0ver/under at number of times he says “neat” at 6.5 right now.

Comment by Upittbaseball 01.06.14 @ 10:28 am

I guess we will miss the first half of the Championship, being at the Pete. Guess I will have to tape Chryst’s performance. Glad to see him get the recognition.

Virtual girls in Bikinis, just when you thought you saw everything.

Comment by gc 01.06.14 @ 10:33 am

@atlantpanther, The hoodie would be a nice step up over plain grey PITTSBURGH sweatshirt of Navy game fame.

Comment by spiritofsection22 01.06.14 @ 10:36 am

What are the Vegas odds on him showing up for this gig wearing a sweatshirt, cause we all know how he “appreciates” their comfort, especially when wearing an oversized XXX one.

I still giggle thinking back to when those complains first hit the Pitt Blather. Now I’m waiting for someone to criticize him for something else obtuse, like his poor oral hygiene habits since he only flosses twice a week, although professionally, I would have to second that concern. LMAO!

Comment by Dr. Tom 01.06.14 @ 10:43 am

I thought HCPC established himself pretty good, when he had the tux on and had to speak at the podium during one of AD’s awards.

Comment by markp 01.06.14 @ 10:50 am

Fantatically weird (new phrase) how the conversations change over the months. In August we wanted a 8-10 win season. By November we’re wondering if PC is good enough. Now in January we feel he’s building something. Ohhhh to be a fan of Pitt.

Comment by Jbizz 01.06.14 @ 10:53 am

Sorry that was supposed to be fantastically…

Comment by Jbizz 01.06.14 @ 10:54 am

Amara with two interceptions in an all-star game.

Those are skills we need.

Has anyone heard that any of the recruits are coming to school now?

Comment by gc 01.06.14 @ 10:57 am

With the Dukies and Tar Heels appearing to be very vulnerable off of the weekends failures the conference looks like it could well be won by newcomers Syracuse or Pitt. Fancy that.

Comment by spiritofsection22 01.06.14 @ 11:01 am

@Jbizz, BS, we always WANT 12 wins!!! But us realistic people were hoping for a .500 season and sneaking into a bowl game, while the doubters were penciling in only wins against New Mexico and ODU.

This season paned out overall just about the way most anticipated, just jumbled up a little by who we beat and who we lost to.

In any case, it is hard to imagine the Pitt is not on the upswing considering our misfortunes over the previus few years.

Comment by Dr. Tom 01.06.14 @ 11:06 am

gc, The night USC played Texas (Vince Young) for the national title, Pitt and ND had a 2 OT game (or was it 3?) By the time, I got home, the game was well in the 3rd quarter.

Got to see two good endings that night

Comment by wbb 01.06.14 @ 11:11 am

Very few coaches are good in public. Most stumble around to not say anything that can bite them in the a**. HCPC will do as well as most.

Comment by chethejet 01.06.14 @ 11:22 am

@chethejet, I think he is way better at the stumbling part than you give him credit for.

Comment by spiritofsection22 01.06.14 @ 11:26 am

See what a little POSITIVE Pitt Group Think can do?

Glad I could be of some help with this one.

Comment by PittofDreams 01.06.14 @ 11:37 am

Chryst on the Fan at 1:00 for anyone interested.

Out of towners, that’s 93.7, and you can get the station over the net.

That virtual chick is fantastically somethin’!

Comment by Dan 01.06.14 @ 11:40 am

Now tha’s funny SofS22, rumor has it that HCPC has a Masters in stumbling. No wonder he got the nod to replace Strong tonight when he backed out on the committment.

Seriously though, this has to be viewed as good press for Pitt, although his own fans will disect him to pieces, I’m sure, especially if he shows up wearing anything less than his tux.

Comment by Dr. Tom 01.06.14 @ 11:40 am

I’ve never ventured into the hoodie-gate fray the past several months.

My stand on it is, get me 9 or 10 wins every year and a consistent place in the top 20 or top 25, and the guy could wear assless chaps as far as I’m concerned!

Comment by Dan 01.06.14 @ 11:47 am

A little train of thought…

– Jamie guides his team from behind for an ACC win against NC State.

– A Four Star Receiver from New Jersey commits to the Panthers on National TV.

– THUS… Chryst getting the call to help analyze the BCS Championship will turn out to be a MAJOR PLUS for Chryst and the Program.

Comment by PittofDreams 01.06.14 @ 11:48 am

@@@@@@

Seriously the comments here are astounding. Taking shots
at PC’s sweatshirt? Really are you guys that shallow?

Tonight go Pitt! Let’s win all of our conference home games.

Comment by JR 01.06.14 @ 11:50 am

Pitt’s recruiting class is now ranked #39 by Rivals, 40 by Scout. I know those numbers aren’t necessarily ones to gush over, but for crying out loud, given all we’ve been through lately, I am very confident about the future of this program.

Beat the Terps tonight BIG.

Some just can’t let some GOOD NEWS for the Football Team go without ridicule… unless of course it were WANNY wearing the sweatshirts.

Sounds like he was allowed to open the purse strings a little.

Comment by Jbizz 01.06.14 @ 12:06 pm

@pittof dreams, Please don’t lump me I with those preferring Wanny. @jr Did you see him in the sweatshirt we are referring too? Obviously not by your comment. I am guessing he will wear something less moronic and do a great job and get us some nice exposure. Half of you guys acuse me of drinking coolaide and the other half treat me like a troll. I like Chryst but I’m not afraid to give him a shot when it fits.

You can’t put a price on loyalty. Congrats on the promotion Mr. Kolodziej.

Comment by Atlanta Panther 01.06.14 @ 12:12 pm

@JR, ya, I never got the whole debate. LOL

What’s he supposed to wear??

What, a double knit golf shirt would make him look classier???

A suit?? Does anyone wear a suit on the sidelines anymore??

I guess if he cut the sleeves off like Belicheck and it looked ratty, or slovenly, ok, something like that, I guess he could get some comments.

Or, if it was a 10 year old sweatshirt with holes in it. I’d get it.

Dark blue sweatshirt, with gold Pitt logo on it.
Sounds about right to me along the sidelines.

Comment by Dan 01.06.14 @ 12:12 pm

Now that he filled the strength job what is he going to do about special teams? Please don’t tell me he is going to repeat last years mess.

Comment by spiritofsection22 01.06.14 @ 12:13 pm

Actually the blame for Hoddiegate falls squarely on Mrs. Chryst and her humble midwestern roots. No self-respecting Texas wife would let her husband out of the house looking like such a shambles. Especially if he was going to coach a football game.

Comment by Atlanta Panther 01.06.14 @ 12:14 pm

Comment by Atlanta Panther 01.06.14 @ 12:15 pm

Can he hire Andrew Taglianetti as a GA to coach kick coverage? With all the xtra $$$ he saved from the S&C budget it should be within budget.

Comment by Atlanta Panther 01.06.14 @ 12:16 pm

Dissapointed in hiring a GA for a Strength Coach. Again, we go cheap.

Comment by Upittbaseball 01.06.14 @ 12:25 pm

The sweatshirt in question was terrible. I don’t mind a sweatshirt as long as it looked classy, i.e. Bob Stoops the other night. This thing was greay and looked like Rocky Balboa wore it the day he went jogging in Philly and beat up the cow’s in the slaughterhouse.

ATL – Hoodiegate – LOL

Comment by Upittbaseball 01.06.14 @ 12:28 pm

According to S Warner blog, the S&C coach is Ross Kolodziej, who is an assistant S&C coach currently at Pitt. There are no data about his background in the media guide.

Comment by wbb 01.06.14 @ 12:28 pm

Ross Kolodziej

Looks a lot tougher than the last guy… if that means anything.

Just one suggestion…

How about having Kolodziej coach the Defense and putting House in charge of S&C.

Comparing their resumes… this might make more sense.

Comment by PittofDreams 01.06.14 @ 12:36 pm

Comment by wbb 01.06.14 @ 12:36 pm

It was on twitter and is according to one of those coaching devoted websites.

Upitt, how much of a difference in pay is there between an “elite” strength coach and say an inexperienced one. Maybe 100K or 200K. So I doubt money was the deciding factor. But if the hire was made cause of money, Pitt should just join the MAC and get it over with. At least we’d get 9-10 win seasons every year.

Comment by Wardapalooza 01.06.14 @ 12:37 pm

He could wear a thong if he gets me 10 wins
and an Orange bowl invite!!

Comment by Dan 01.06.14 @ 12:39 pm

He looks like a badass to me. Pro Ball plus shot put. Still hungry.

Comment by gc 01.06.14 @ 12:40 pm

LMAO on the sweatshirt gate! Thanks for a Monday laugh

Comment by Dan 72 01.06.14 @ 12:49 pm

I’ll pass on the thong and gladly take 5-6 wins a season.

Comment by Jbizz 01.06.14 @ 12:53 pm

PITT NEW STRENGTH COACH IS ROSS KOLODZIEJ
HE IS A FORMER DT AT WISCONSIN WHO WAS ON 3 DIFFERENT NFL TEAMS
WERE ELSE WOULD HE COME FROM

Comment by Frankcan 01.06.14 @ 1:02 pm

Regarding Adonis Jennings…

Watching last night’s Semper Fi Game, Jennings was barely mentioned… outside of course his verbal commitment to Pitt. Don’t remember a pass actually going his direction.

But that’s nothing to use as a barometer. I believe Tyler Boyd had similar results from his appearance in a U.S. Army All-American Game a year ago.

But this kid (Jennings) looks to be a REALLY GOOD get… much better than Jamil Kamara on paper and on tape.

Listed at 6-3… last year Jennings was the wide-receiver MVP at the Nike Football Training Camp in Landover, Md. and the offensive MVP of the Rivals.com Camp Series at Pitt.

His speed has been a bit of a question with Jennings running a 4-7 at Nike. But watching him last night, he plays faster than 4-7, a point emphatically made by the analyst for the game.

And his track numbers from High School would seem to suggest that this kid is not slow. Jennings was a member of the Timber Creek 4X100 Relay Team that ran a 42.31, the fastest time in the State of New Jersey last year.

We’ll see how he fits into the mix next year. Obviously a kid with potential… I would not be surprised to see an attempt to redshirt him this fall with all of the other wide receivers already on the roster.

But who knows?

Comment by PittofDreams 01.06.14 @ 1:03 pm

I dont know what makes him a strength coach except he played at wisconsin but there you are

Comment by Frankcan 01.06.14 @ 1:05 pm

I don’t get the constant issues people have with PCs low-key personality. Gus Malzahn makes PC look like the life of the party, and he’s done pretty well.

Comment by wbb 01.06.14 @ 1:11 pm

FBS teams are limited to one head coach, nine assistant coaches and two graduate assistants. Let’s see how this plays out. The S&C coach doesn’t count against those limits if they don’t coach during a game. Maybe HCPC has some other changes in mind.

Comment by Pitt Dad 01.06.14 @ 1:14 pm

To those not happy with the selection of Kolodziej as S&C Coach… my suggestion is that maybe you go up to him and tell him face-to-face he’s NOT RIGHT for the job.

Stay Safe.

Comment by PittofDreams 01.06.14 @ 1:14 pm

@Dan, The great sweatshirt debate stems from a loss at Navy and would not have occurred if we had won. Since then it has become a debate whereby many think some blatherites are too tough on Chryst. Those who generally exspousing that position didn’t see how dumb he looked in this particular sweatshirt. I did. It was about a 4X in drab grey with plain black PITTSBURGH lettering across the front. It wasn’t a hoody nor did it have any style at all. It was just plain and stupid looking much like our performance at Annapolis. Most here agree that if he wins 10 games a year we will all be wearing them.

Comment by spiritofsection22 01.06.14 @ 1:22 pm

I think they hired this Koolaidiaj guy to build up our lineman. Obviously he knows what it takes to succeed in that area.

My question is how he would handle the rest of the team. I guess he can’t do any worse than TR. Sounds like most halfway competent high school gym teachers can come up with a more effective program than Todd.

I call your attention to Exhibit A: Andrew Tagliantti’s twitter feed.

Andrew Taglianetti ?@Andrew_Tags 20 Dec
Rumors Todd Rice is no longer head strength coach at Pitt. Hallelujah. He was incompetent

Andrew Taglianetti ?@Andrew_Tags 20 Dec
@Butor11 didn’t know shit about strength and conditioning and truly thought he was the man. He’s a n00b

Andrew Taglianetti ?@Andrew_Tags 20 Dec
@giubilato_43 sets of 10 all day everyday. How is your power clean technique?

I’ll take an ex-Wisconsin lineman with NFL pedigree any day.

Comment by Atlanta Panther 01.06.14 @ 1:25 pm

Speaking of Wisconsin….. Yesterday I watched the rerun of Glory Road the story of the West Texas basketball team that started 5 blacks and beat all white Kentucky for the National championship. Last night I watched Wisconsin beat Iowa. One announcer said he thought Wisconsin would be a Final 4 team. Wisconsin starts 4 whites. When was the last time a team made the Final 4 starting 4 whites? I really don’t think anyone cares anymore but I thought it was ironic.

Comment by spiritofsection22 01.06.14 @ 1:30 pm

Get the point that Ross Kolodziej does not have a resume as a S&C Coach. On the other hand, Todd Rice had the “perfect” resume on paper and according to Andrew Taglianetti was “incompetent.”

Keep in mind that Kolodziej was a Two-Time Captain at Wisconsin which tells you he knows something about leadership and putting in the work.

Now looking at Kolodziej numbers from the NFL Combine… his bench was not overly impressive with 25 reps of 225.

But everything else suggests as a Defensive Lineman… this guy was pretty athletic which says he might know something about conditioning.

********

Comment by PittofDreams 01.06.14 @ 1:34 pm

POD – that’s a heck of an analysis.

I’d want to see how many reps of 225 RK could do when he was an 18 year old freshman. Progession means a lot.

For the record the 6th best total in the 2013 combine was 29 reps (D-Lineman), it was 26 reps for O-lineman. 25 reps isn’t bad.

What are the restrictions on S&C coaches theses days? It used to be teams like Alabama would hire a staff of ten and actually have practices in the winter. Using the loop hole that they were S&C coaches, not football coaches. I thought they put restrictions on it now.

Either way, you can’t rip on the guy until you know his philosophy, how the players feel about him and what methods he uses. Hoepfully he is half crazy and makes them mean as hell, lol.

Good post Pitt Dad.

I wonder how loose the definition of “flexiblity, warm-up and physical conditioning” could be? Sometimes those agility drills can look an awful lot like football, and that’s not a bad thing.

@ Dan, picture this for some future motivation from the S&C coach. OK, so Ross takes you up on your wardrobe dare and shows up in his thong, now tell me when he spotting you on on your last set of bench presses that you ain’t going to give it your all, cause the alternative to finishing is getting tea bagged when he’s forced to snatch that 300+ barbell off your scrawny chest!

Now that’s a motivational image! LMFAO!

I don’t know what happened between the Miami game and the Bowl game. But PC’s interview on TV at the Bowl game was 10 times better than just a few weeks earlier.

Maybe he’s a night/evening person as opposed to a morning person. All those nooners, he slept walked thru, ala a zombie.

That or he took a Dale Carnegie class (do they still have those) post Miami game.

Comment by Emel 01.06.14 @ 3:47 pm

When was the last time a team made the Final 4 starting 4 whites?

Utah Utes in 1998. They lost to Kentucky in the championship game. Emel was a witness 1

Comment by Emel 01.06.14 @ 3:54 pm

Texas Western became UTEP under the legendary Don Haskins.

Guy coached 38 years at UTEP going 719 wins and only had 5 losing seasons in 38 years. Pretty amazing at such a small school.

The Miners were 28-1 in 1966 and as sos22 noted beat Kentucky in the NC game. Side note, Pat Riley was on that Kentucky game along with ABA 3 point sharpshooter Louie Dampier. Who I remember seeing play in Pittsburgh against the Pipers and the Condors. Loved the tri-color ABA basketball.

Comment by Emel 01.06.14 @ 4:03 pm

@ Emel, I’m not sure why, but I find this Wisconsin team to be disconserting, if this trend continues, those white cheesehead types are going to take over the sport!

Comment by Dr. Tom 01.06.14 @ 4:05 pm

Keep in mind that Kolodziej was a Two-Time Captain at Wisconsin which tells you he knows something about leadership and putting in the work.

Surprise, surprise. Another Wisconsin guy. PITT football must be employing half the state of Wisconsin. :-)

Comment by Emel 01.06.14 @ 4:06 pm

Another transplanted cheesehead. Wait a minute, do they incorporate S&C programs in the NFL these days? Maybe Ross took notes during the half dozen years or so that he played during his professional career and now wants to do something productive in his post NFL career while still remaining in the game of football.

Even though he only has one year under his S&C coaching belt at Wiskey, just maybe he might know something about this gig because of his on the job training? Guess we’ll find out.

The new drink on campus,,, out with the Gatoraid and the Pitt Koolaid now it’s nothing but Kolodziej from here on out in the Iron Works.

Comment by Dr. Tom 01.06.14 @ 4:27 pm

Comment by Togatogatoga 01.06.14 @ 7:29 pm

Heya toga, nice to hear about Amara but who is he going after?

I took a look at the Louisville verbals and they have two nice linemen (DT Nelson and OT Burns). Both had offers from Pitt and both are talented. Would be worth a follow-up in my opinion. Good job with Jennings HCPC!!! Now go do some follow up work on the two above, a couple penn staters and a CB that for some reason picked the community college of Morgantown.
