Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Morning Java: Special guest Steve Pederson

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Morning, Lunatics …

>> The TribLIVE Radio show today — 2-3 p.m. — will feature special guest Steve Pederson, Pitt’s AD, on the week of the Notre Dame game and basketball opening up. He’ll be right at the top of the show.

After that, I’ll present to listeners a question: How would you change the Steelers?

All through Mike Tomlin’s press conference yesterday, we heard how nothing will change. And then afterward, the general sentiment seemed to be that nothing can change. Well, I want to hear from you: What about personnel moves? Or strategy? Or approach? Or attitude? Or preparedness? Or effort?

Call me at 412-320-7925. I will work to get your call onto the show.
