It was tongue-in-cheek. I can't address your phobia comment as I don't know why you would say such a thing.

"everyone"?

I guess that I must meet a higher class of person.

How sad is this?

http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootbal ... mpass-bowl

Senior tailback Ray Graham summed up the team's sentiment earlier this month when he said the Panthers were looking forward to "any bowl, except Birmingham."


Pittsburgh, which has predictably struggled to stir interest, is a disappointing 6-6 outfit stuck in the Compass Bowl for the third January in a row.


Rebels fans went through the university's initial allotment of 10,000 tickets so quickly, the school had to go back to the bowl for more, and even took nearly half of Pittsburgh's allotment (4,000 tickets of 10,000). Altogether, Ole Miss has reported 21,470 tickets sold through the university for the Jan. 5 game, believed to be the most for any bowl-bound SEC school this year.


Wow... Are any of you all going?

Why would anyone want to go to a rust belt town in the deep South?

To root for your team? Isn't that what fans do?

Besides, you sound like the people who put Pittsbugh down for being a "rust belt town" in the North.

How many times have you gone to Birmingham ulf? Is it really that bad to see your team play in a bowl game? Sounds kind of spoiled to me.

Last years attendence was only 29K so there weren't many Pitt fans there last year either.

I certainly wouldn't pay to go to that bowl game let alone the same bowl 3 years in a row. Pitt doesn't deserve to have people show up they were pathetic this year and no fun to watch.

None, couldn't afford a trip as a student the past 2 years, and can't take any days off after Jan 1st thanks to the awesomeness of tax season. I was planning my trip to the Pinstripe bowl all of November..

Or because their fans are probably like 95% of all the fans in the stands.

What was the spread for this game? anyone know?

Edit: a quick web search shows it opened at Pitt +2.5 went as high as +3.5 and settle at +3 before game time?

Even at 4.5 it seems like a good bet to give the points, no?

I wouldn't ever bet on a Pitt game. They spank Rutgers and VT, and lose to UConn and YSU. Too unpredictable.

Good for ya'll.

Pitt always seems to get a decent RB. It's at the QB position you have needs though.

Last time I placed a bet on a Pitt game was last year against USF. I was in vegas at the time and lost my shirt on that one.

None the less, this game ... well, lets see how it goes, but I'd say Ole Miss is a pretty safe bet -4.5 (or 3.5 depending on who you ask)
