Coordinator Speak: Joe Rudolph

While the passing game continues to produce, Joe Rudolph says he likes it when Rushel Shell and Ray Graham are both productive in the same game. He also talks about how J.P. Holtz is responding to an increased role each week.

Offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph has his passing unit clicking along with five consecutive games with 275 or more yards passing. Prior to this year, Tino Sunseri had only thrown for more than 275 yards in five times in 26 previous starts.

In those five games, strangely, Pitt only has a 2-3 record.

One area that would help greatly, would be Pitt's running game. In the last two games, Pitt has amassed a total of 120 yards on the ground, after racking up a total of 483 yards in the previous two games.

"I'd love to see them both be successful; take advantage of each carry," Rudolph said. "I think that is when we are at our best, when those guys have a feel for it; when you're changing it up."
