Talk about a ridiculous extrapolation. Wow.

It's not a ridiculous extrapolation. Ask the people posting in this thread if this is the gist of what you're getting at.

Seriously now... think.


Why would LSU take the risk of playing an inferior WVU team? What's in it for them? They play a brutal schedule and are featured on Game Day every year with or without WVU. Why play a weak (relatively speaking) OOC team? LSU had as much to gain from that game last year as WVU allegedly does against Pitt this year.

WVU is a top tier team that deserves to only play the best, except for the FCS teams for "economic" reasons. :slug:

Yes. Both Rocco and EPP have no idea what they are talking about.

Last week he said I was "too timid to stick up for my own team"

Trying to buy tickets to the OSU-Michigan game so my dad can come up and watch it is near impossible. I have one, but I want 2 together. People are asking $500 or more for them. I'm not sure I'd even pay $500 for 2 tickets to a National Championship game or even a Game 7 of the SCF.

We don't have those issues at Pitt.

Pitt ensures that their fans can always find a seat by constantly underperforming and finding new, soul-crushing ways to lose. This keeps attendance down so the foolhardy, er diehard fans can always get a seat.

The real question is, How does it look against a blue background?

There had been 343 days between losses for the West Virginia University football program going into last weeks game... The Mountaineers haven't had to show how they respond to a loss since nearly a year ago.

The Wildcats are tough... I'm not sure the 'Eers have what it takes (particulary on defense) to play a Top 10 program right now.

Bring it though, This tough Big 12 schedule doesn't give you much of a chance to catch your breath. From this fans standpoint, there's a noticeable difference this year as opposed to playing in the BE.

What the hell did Braxton Miller hurt? It looked like it could have been 3 different things. He couldn't walk, might have been out cold, and got carted off.
