Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
PSU should threaten to leave the BIG and demand that we get all of the bowl money that the BIG is taking away from us in the coming years.
I'd rather not tell Cael that wrestling doesn't matter. The fact remains, however, that nobody is going to switch conferences because of wrestling or hockey. What's best for the football program will determine what conference any school is aligned with, not any other sport.
No, Hockey East would be a viable option for hockey. Don't fool yourself. The BIG won't be the top dog in hockey. Hockey, in this instance, doesn't matter because there is a more than viable option for them to play in a solid league. Don't make it look like the BIG is the only option. It surely isn't.
I never said hockey was going to be the top dog, i'm saying football,big network,wrestling and hockey will be the main reasons why we will never ,ever leave for the ACC , you can bank on it. Do you think Cael wants to wrestle the teams from the ACC,instead of the ,Iowas,OSU,Wiconsins, Minnesota,Michigan,Nebraska etc.? i don't think so,Wrestling brings in more money than you think. Hockey to will bring in more money than you think it will.

Dude, I'm a hockey guy. I think you are very very very naive if you think Hockey East wouldn't be a viable option for PSU ice hockey. You can't bring up that as a negative reason for leaving for the ACC - hockey. Because there are viable options here. Hockey isn't a main reason to stay in the BIG. One thing is for sure, if PSU left, BIG hockey would be F*CKED because it wouldn't have enough playing members to get an automatic bid.
You can use wrestling as the crux of your argument, but certainly not hockey.
He makes it sound like the BIG is this national power in football. It isn't. Two or three good teams; lots of average or shitty teams that won't amount to anything. Sounds like the ACC if you ask me.
If the B1G invited Rutgers, Maryland, Pitt and UConn, they could probably replace Penn State's marketing footprint.
This is the reason topics like this should be VIP.
I have no issue with robo.
The reality is we have gotten screwed. More than your average team. Ohio state and Nebraska ran the ball 110 times...without a single holding penalty. Thats HARD to do in a thud drill, let alone in a live game.
The ball clearly crossed the plane of the goal line, and a ref bumped into our players after a change of possession. We are talking as the players were running onto the field. We had a phantom false start.
PSU has stunk in the second half. No one disputes that but if you honestly don't think that PSU is being targeted here then you are blind.
If I am one of the irrational guys so be it. I will call a spade a spade. I know that our big ten brethren think we shouldn't be playing. I know that the big ten presidents took a vote to kick is out, and I know the refs are human. No official is unbiased. Just not gonna happen.
This. It's just too bad that our administration doesn't have the balls to realize the leverage that they have. The BTN's value falls immeasurably without Penn State in this conference. You lose subs in the numbers 1, 4, 7, 23, 27, and 30 markets right off the bat. This, plus destroying the hockey conference and TV revenue it will produce, gives us tremendous clout at the bargaining table. If only we had someone in power who understood that and took advantage of it.

PSU fan base isn't even comparable, the B10 didn't make PSU, Joepa and the ulumni made PSU
good luck with that theory
I didn't think PSU's footprint went past the footprints they leave in the big steamy piles of cow dung in the pastures that surround their rickety stadium. LMAO!!!
Weak. I give this one a D-.
What's the + for?
He spelled things properly.
UMMM ... D- effort
I think you guys should just jump! The ACC has ND waiting in the wings and pretty much guranteed to have the current contract renegotiated and the value skyrocket.
The ACC North would like what one old ball coach wanted to see while he was still at PSU. I think jumping ship and starting a new in a more geographically friendly conference, with more money soon to follow, would be the right decision for the Nittany Lion faithful.

By the way....
A move to the ACC would solve a lot of problems.
Are you willing to foot the bill?
I am for that, many others are too
