When Pat Narduzzi took a slight jab at Penn State safety Lamont Wade before the Nittany Lions took on Pitt, nobody was really sure whether he was trying to stir the pot or was making a serious comment.
“You don’t see him a whole lot,” Narduzzi said when asked about what he thought of Wade. “You don’t see him out there a lot.”
Wade took that as a personal attack on his talents from the Pitt head coach, firing him up even more for the weekend’s rivalry game. And after Penn State posted a 51-6 over the Panthers on Saturday night, the Nittany Lions safety had his own message for Narduzzi.
“See me now” Wade posted on Twitter, along with a photo of him smiling.

Wade had a solid outing, posting four total tackles, two of which were solo stops, on a defense that allowed just one touchdown in the game.
Narduzzi was fired up about the rivalry all weekend long, making several comments about the relevance and important of the matchup between Penn State and Pitt.
He just seemed to agitate the wrong people and it cost him in an embarrassing fashion.
