Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Sunday column: ‘Today was an emotional day’

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Morning, Lunatics …

>> The Sunday column from Beaver Stadium reacts to James Franklin’s strong opening statement that Penn State will ‘dominate the state’ in recruiting. And it does so via my asking if he was referencing Pitt.

Here’s video of that exchange and more about Franklin’s recruiting goals …

News coverage of the coach’s day is by beat man Chris Adamski, and it’s highlighted by some surprising Pittsburgh ties.

Franklin’s intelligence, enthusiasm lauded, by Bob Cohn.

More reaction to the hiring, by Jason Mackey.

I’ll appear on WPXI-TV’s Subway Final Word at 11:35 p.m., along with Rob Rossi, Bill Phillips and host Alby Oxenreiter.

There also will be a Monday column about baseball, and I’ll be holding my nose through the whole thing. This topic burns me up in a bad way.
