and certain posters acted like I was crazy when I said Penn State fans and alums by large were not demanding a return to the Pitt "rivalry." Until that series gets completed, good luck to us all that we get any of these desired teams coming to the Beav.
Santa, please get us a real Athletic Director for Christmas.
I think you see the lack of Pitt votes because it's already happening for 4 years.
Florida State and Notre Dame, just can't stand those two teams.
Maryland because I live 40 minutes from the stadium.
Notre Dame - old tradition
Oregon - new success
both would put us in national spotlight
HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, haven't checked back on this one in a while. I see what you did there though. Very well played sir.
And same to you PK, that little guy is hilarious.
That is my name on their tops and no one can tell me any different!!!!
The only reason I didn't put Pitt number 1 was because I assumed Jeff wanted schools that PSU currently wasn't playing. I would take Pitt over just about every school in the country and I think ALOT of Pitt fans feel the same way.
Dominate The State
ND. I'm from the coal regions and up there you're either PSU or ND. Always a big game and watching the game in a bar is a wild experience. Make it a night game and it's even better.
LSU - SEC. Death Valley at night! Home and home. I was at the Capital One Bowl with both of my sons who are LSU alum. Well the youngest graduates in April. Great because I'm a life long PSU fan!
Texas- because I would like to have some sort of a presence in the state, no matter how unrealistic of a desire it is. Also, it's a bonus to watch their fans squirm and moan after a nice whoopin'.
Pitt- I would like to have our natural rival back on.
West Virginia- a rival who has had a high level of recent success, and would look good if we beat them.
USC- because I hate them.
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
Take a page out of Auburns playbook and poison some of their trees.
FWIW Bama claims three ones from years where they weren't top 5 or something like that.
Virginia Tech. They are pretty close and I have a bunch of Virginia Tech friends. Plus their AD played for us so it shouldn't be too hard to convince him to play us.
Just like how Pitt claims 9 NCs, even though 8 of them were before WWII and one of them even comes from a year where they lost 47-14 to USC in the Rose Bowl .
Any NC not claimed in the modern era is a joke.
I don't mind it if they were the nationally recognized national champion, but claiming it because some newspaper in BFE declared the team "national champs" is absurd.
I posted the picture of aTm claiming two more national titles this offseason, and their justification was the same for those two as Alabama has for their fake ones. It's very sad that a program feels the necessity to claim a title they clearly didn't deserve.
If this becomes a trend, we should claim 1994 and 2012 for kicks and giggles.
If we claimed every undefeated season, we would have six more national championships. It's just silly.
They (Virginia Tech) have contacted us multiple times about scheduling us. So, "convincing him (them) to play US" is not the problem.
I'd like to see this happen. Getting into Virginia consistently for recruiting would be nice.
Interesting. I hadn't heard that. Hopefully we can get something worked out sooner or later with them. I think it would be a great series for us to play since we recruit VA pretty well.
