It seems with your quick witted comment that you don't think PSU would bring enough to the table to interest a league like the ACC? I'm pretty sure the ACC would be intrigued possibly adding an athletic department like PSU to the mix.
I have no doubt the ACC would love to have your fanbase and merchandise sales....but they will never "accept" a northern team into their little "club"...Syracuse and Pitt may be in, but they will never be "in"....
I don't come over to your board of filth and try to fit in and then come back here and try to gain up votes. I don't post on your board full of degenerates. Vandy did drop OSU. That is a fact. You go over to make a thread based on a "select few" posters want to go to the ACC. If I wanted to get a rise out of OSU fans, I post something to the effect that Urbs was using his off week to go back to Gainesville to shack up with that coed he screwed before the "health issues" hit him.
Syracuse and Pitt DON'T bring what PSU brings. That is why they will never be "in" They only bring men's hoops and nothing else. Notre Dame is a northern team, so are they going to be cast as outsiders? PSU is alot closer to ND than Pitt and Syracuse combined.
Still waiting on why Robo posted that thread. Or for him to just leave. But if it's so innocent, I'm sure he has a great explanation as to what excellent discussion he was expecting on the Bucknuts board with that thread.
For the same reason people were posting in the Rutgers barometer threads when we had them. That's equally as pointless, but we still partake in it.
This is so not worth being angry over, and honestly it's doing little more than validating the perception we are trying so hard to avoid.
You act like I'm ducking you....A) you are not "duck worthy".....B) I posted it because I wanted to....period....like it or not, the select few, that you are starting to resemble, are made fun of on a LOT of other teams boards as "delusional"....so really no wonder why the reputation of PSU fans all being grouped as "delusional" or "crazy" as has been said by many is widely accepted....
So I could ask the same question as to why you or Hamilton or any others start threads on here about Buckeyes......must be for the "upvotes" huh?

you could have just said because I'm a troll because that's what trolls do.
That's part of my reasoning as to why they won't accept you...they are a basketball conference, period, and they don't give a hoot about football...they still don't consider FSU as adding anything to their beloved southern boy conference....I've lived down here for 23 years and anything north of Virginia is a Yankee....there is no difference in their minds to the Midwest and New Jersey....period...
If you guys really believe the officials in the BIG are against you, I'd sure hate for you to get your wish and join the ACC, you'd be begging to get back to the BIG officials....
Back at ya big boy.....I"ve been spending some time going through a lot of your comments in past threads....you've got a lot of room to point a finger.....I looked at the thread you and BotB were talking about the upcoming OSU/PSU game, and you basically calling him a troll and not knowing anything about football, etc.....funny thing is, just about everything he pointed out in that thread happened in the game....he was respectful to you and other posters, yet you jumped his s**t for his opinion...which again, was dead on....
You're just the PSU board "know it all" and can't stand any opinions other than yours....that is abundantly clear by reading old posts....
ACC is also trying to change the perception of its football. Do you honestly think they invited ND in without thinking that eventually ND would bring football? I don't. The ACC is taking a nasty hit football wise. It's not hard to figure it out. This year, the BIG certainly is, but year after year, the ACC gets hammered. You have Florida State; maybe Clemson and usually VPI (certainly not this year) and then everyone else. Clemson is enigmatic. They can beat Bama one week (example of a quality team) and then fall to Kennesaw State the next week.
ACC also wants to add viewership. Do you think Pitt and Syracuse bring viewership for football? Why did the BIG court PSU back in the day? To add a national power that brings a solid academic reputation; a great fan base and a solid relevant athletic department.
I don't care where you live. You can claim to know what you think is the case, but if a PSU type entered that league, it would be respected, not neglected and would have a say, not ignored.

You know best, as I said, any opinions other than yours aren't correct....LOL.....good luck with that attitude....
I'm sure you know exactly what the ACC wants and talks about in their meetings, as I'm sure every discussion involves adding PSU to their conference....
As for ND, yep, they HOPE ND will come in with football, because.....say it with me....it will add MONEY to the conference due to the huge fan base....same as I said with PSU...they will welcome your money, but they will never 'want" you to win their conference....if you can't understand that, then I can't help you...
What threads did I start about OSU? Please, enlighten me.
Fact is, your avoidance of that question (which you seem to have no problem responding to everything else here) speaks volumes. "Because I wanted to." OK, fine.
Thank you for informing me of our reputation across the internet. I had no idea that morons on other sites considered us delusional. How ever am I going to get to sleep tonight?
Guys - he obviously succeeded at what he wanted to do which is ruin a thread about PSU leaving the conference. Treat him like I used to my little brother - ignore him and he'll go away. He's a hell of a troll, I'll give you that. But if you ignore him he wont post here anymore, which is what I think we want.
Back to the discussion - the Big Ten sucks donkey balls.
It wasn't implied that YOU did, it was a broad question as to why you, Hamilton or any others do start them...Hamilton has, as have many others....I've noticed you don't start too many threads, just jump to the defense of "non causes"....
And wow!!!! over 10,000 posts in two years......that's like posting 13 times a day, EVERY DAY....congrats...
ACC would be so much fun!! lol, I wanna go to Miami and UNC for football games. I would love to see the lions play the terps in basketball. Lets not kid ourselves, us east coast fans don't wanna travel to Iowa or cold ass Minnesota.
I would love to spend a weekend in Boston, and see a BC-PSU game!!! I AM ALL IN ACC!!! I can't stand the big 10, time for a fresh start. We put names on the back of our players, so tradition is out the window!!!
I wanna play Pitt too
+1. Living in AZ, I have no interest in taking trips to East Lansing, West Lafayette, or even the "nicer" cities of the Big 10 when I could go to Florida, Georgia and the Carolina's for football and golf trips or family vacations. We'd still be playing in a BCS conference, IMO, I see no advantage of the Big 10 to the ACC from a purely football perspective.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Penn State is 3rd this year @ $100 million behind only TX and ND.
The Article indicates that PSU is certain to fall by $20-30 million as a result of the JS scandal.
In the Centre Daily Times, they indicate that PSU has already spent $20 million this year on JS.
Factor in the $12.5 million in NCAA fines and the loss of another $3.25 million in bowl revenue per year from the B1G, PSU is certain to drop.
ACC is expected to increase it's payouts with new TV agreements. Not near as much as the B1G but with the treatment that Delaney & Co. have done by piling on, the ACC certainly looks more attractive.
Get both ND and PSU in the ACC and real "Big" money follows.
SEC should surpass the B1G in money soon. If PSU defects, then the B1G is certain to lose TV market and money.
Fact is, the B1G needs PSU more than PSU needs the B1G.
Arguably, PSU is a better fit with B1G schools overall than the ACC. But if B1G continues to sh*t on PSU FB and BB then the ACC is certainly a better option, especially if it creates the first NCAA Super Conference.
P.S. @ robo guy - I exchanged some good discussion and a little banter over on your board in the week leading up to the OSU game. On Sunday, after the game I went over to congratulate the Bucknuts, but could not because your looney mods banned me.
You have stirred up much more consternation here that I did there. Count yourself lucky that PSU mods are not as pissy as yours.

October 12, 2013. PSU 43 - UM 40 (4 OT). Unfortunately this fan wasn't around long enough to see it!
B1G Piles on. Instead of backing a member institution! Bad form:
The Big Ten needed only two hours to follow the NCAA in punishing Penn State on Monday.
Sign me up for the ACC just because it means it'll be easier to travel to more away games. I think the money will eventually be there if ND joins completely which will happen at some point.

Thank you!!! why would you leave Az for crap ass Columbus OH? you wouldn't, PSU fans love to travel, I know I do. Gives us a chance to get back to being a PSU family again, This shit will never die in the B10, the B10 hates us, and I personaly hate them. Lets all meet up in the Carolina's and forget about this Jerry thing, they would love to have us!!! Wisconsin is too cold..
Actually you did post your congrats, not banned. You also said "the better team won" and ended your post with OH-IO.
And you were we'll received, not a single derogatory post against you or PSU.
After I was reinstated.
