Covering Pitt's last traditional spring practice today --- Saturday's spring game is the lone remaining gathering ---and coach Dave Wannstedt shed some light on what to expect when the teams splits into two for the spring game.
By the way, the game is set for 2 p.m. on Saturday at Heinz Field and can also be seen on the CW.
Anyhow, here were some of Wannstedt's comment: “We are looking to get somewhere between 35-40 reps per player,” Wannstedt said. “We will use it as a Spring Game, but also as a day where our players and our football team gets better.”
That said, though, don't expect him to put more stock in this than the whole body of work, which is how an individual progressed throughout the whole spring.
“We’ll put it in the same category as our last three Saturday scrimmages,” Wannstedt said of performances in the Spring Game. “Just by being in the stadium, and having a few people in the stands, and the players knowing it is on TV, that will affect some players a little differently than if we are just up here on a Saturday morning having a scrimmage in the bubble."
