Looks like Pitt will open up at home on Labor Day with FSU (8PM kickoff). A lot of Pitt people aren't happy about this, but personally, I love it. Pitt has way more to gain playing FSU to open the season vs playing Nova. Pitt loses to FSU, no one should be too upset because FSU is the superior program and is expected to come into Heinz and win. Pitt wins, then its a huge boost of confidence for a program that sorely needs one. Plus, FSU is breaking in a new QB and a ton of new starters on both sides of the ball, so they will be vulnerable.

On the other hand, if Pitt beats Nova, no one cares because they were supposed to and they gain nothing. If they lose, then it's YSU all over again.

People who are whining about the Pitt-FSU opener are the small-minded jabronis that have resulted in Pitt being the second-rate program it presently is.

There is a lot of whining about it on the panther lair message boards. Frankly, it makes no sense to me. If Pitt wants to become a respectable program again, they need to schedule (and win) these types of games.

Should make for an awesome atmosphere at Heinz Field. Prime-time game, on a holiday, still summer time, on national TV.

We don't even have a choice. We're in their conference now; why not make it a national game on Labor Day on the big stage?

Pitt fans are manic depressive and it shouldnt be surprising that they can turn a positive (playing FSU on a national stage) into a negative.

Not sure why people aren't happy about it. Pitt is breaking in a new QB, but so is FSU. Who cares if they play in September or November?

Pitt's not a respectable program, are these people just upset because the national title hopes will be dashed in week one?

Pretty much. They would rather have FSU come to Heinz in November when its cold.

A lot of Pitt fans will cry about anything.

I think this is great. I renewed my tickets over the weekend, so I'm good to go.

Yes, but the "pfim doesn't like the freezing cold" theory held.

The Catholic 7 will be the Big East and start play next year. The current Big East will have one last year as a BCS conference under a name of something other than Big East.

The old Big East football schools are considering "America 12 Conference" as their offical name.

According to NAN the Dude, FSU is joining the B10 effective for the 2014 football season, so enjoy playing FSU this year Pitt fans, as this will be the only time they play as conference rivals.

And no, FSU was never joining the Big12, the Dude never said that.

We have always been at war with Eurasia.
