Pat Narduzzi defends himself over horrendous decision to kick field goal from 1

Pat Narduzzi

Pat Narduzzi is defending himself for a horrendous decision late in his Pitt Panthers’ 17-10 loss to Penn State on Saturday.

Pitt had the ball down 17-10 with around eight minutes left in the game and drove to the Penn State one. They threw two incompletions and rushed for no gain and ended up with a 4th-and-goal from the one. Then for some reason, despite being down seven with five minutes left, Narduzzi opted to try a field goal. No, he didn’t go to try and tie or take the lead, but he went with a field goal.

His reward for the awful decision: a missed kick.

Pitt ended up losing 17-10.

After the game, Narduzzi defended the decision and compounded the error by saying they needed two scores to win.

Should we expect Narduzzi to have admitted his mistake? Maybe not, but let’s hope he realized how dumb his decision was.
