No Waters/Ferguson to discuss this week, and we're into bowl season (if you can call some of the games they play this early in December "bowls"), so I figured I'd start a couple of discussions on Penn State football-related topics.
Up first: Which teams would you most like to see show up on Penn State's future non-conference schedules?
This could be an old rival, someone the Nittany Lions have hardly ever or never played or a traditional powerhouse. Suggesting warm-weather teams is fine, as O'Brien said he'd like to do so during the sanction years, but let's try to think long-term as well, since most of the scheduling is done several years in advance.
EDIT: After you choose the team, give a reason why (you've always been irritated by them, you want to see what O'Brien's offense can do vs. their defense, your parents live 20 minutes from their stadium, etc.) If you've already answered, feel free to go back and edit the reason into your post.
As with other polls, I'll keep a running tally and post results every so often. Feel free to mention more than one team in your answer.

USC, end of story.
Va Tech, to close of a school to have never played in football.

Edit: And when the sanctions are done, and recruiting comes back around (and we are back in the top five or ten in recruiting), if BOB is still here..... BRING ON ANYONE!!!!!!

That is my name on their tops and no one can tell me any different!!!!
would love to see this on a more permanent basis
AM I really the only one who carries hate for USC? Or are others using different though processes?
That's not a bad idea -- I'm going to ask people to list the reason they picked that team after they list it.
(See initial post in thread)
In that case.... I'll add another one. Notre Dame so that I could watch BOB make that screaming clown of a coach ND has crawl under a table and cry.
No my screaming hatred is for Notre Dame though. I freakin' despise that school. That's why I picked them. USC would definitely be #2 on my list so, add USC to mine too.
I was thinking about this on the way in to work this morning...
FLA vs. PSU @ M&T Stadium, Baltimore, MD to start the 2016 season.
Arkansas. I wouldnt mind playing that dick Bielema. And beating an SEC team is always nice
So please Dave Joyner allow Jmaus and myself to contact ND and USC and challenge them to a home and home. They'd have to accept to save face.
Florida State....Georgia...Texas....Reason: They are all solid programs with big fan bases. Would make for fun home and home series
We're working on a stronger presence in the South, right?
Ok then - Georgia, Miami, Tennessee.

Navy - Love playing the military academies. Better than playing MAC schools - IMO
Ga Tech, I loved the campus and would love to go down there for a game (home and home). It also increases the exposure for PSU in GA.
Miami, I think that would have been a great rivalry if we both had joined a conference together in the 90s.
Vandy, I think it would be good for both schools. Playing an SEC school never hurts perception in the south.
Cincy, Southwest Ohio isn't as big Buckeye territory as many think and it would be great to get exposure with some of the kids in that area (especially the private schools).
Texas or Florida state.
i would love to do a home and home with oregon. Just arent a big fan of their rise to the top and our style is very contrasting to theirs, plus it would be a rematch of the 94 rose bowl which i think is the only time weve played them
Florida in a home and home series. Good fan base and always wanted to see a game at the swamp
I always wanted to play VT. Oregon would be fun as well.
Florida isn't leaving the state of Florida for an away OOC game.
