So, Pitt should also be ranked?

Bahahaha on the Spitters Iceman ;)


The funny part about how this season has unfolded lies in the simplicity of one of JoePa's old tried and true adages that the most important thing for a college program is to get better each and every week.

The constraints that the NCAA has long since applied to summer practice and the development of young talent makes it mandatory that a college staff work their ass off to improve and coach up the club as the season develops.


When the 2016 campaign began I was firmly entrenched in the group that outwardly wondered aloud if JFF was a capable CFB "COACH" and not just a recruiter with the proverbial swag in the living room. He has shown us all that he is up to the task. The overall growth and development of the uber young talent in Blue and White has been remarkable.


The needle is very much pointing upward as of now in Happy Valley. The recruiting impact that will come as a result of the two back to back whiteout wins vs The Fuckeyes and The Hawkeyes is the real elixir in this equation as JFF can now show clear and tangible evidence that the young studs can come onboard and be part of righting the ship. He is playing true freshman and sophomores across the lineup and the results are pleasing and then some to all of us who have been waiting for the sleeping giant to reemerge.


Bright days are ahead in Happy Valley and Pitt is still in fact a middling ACC program with a dude at the helm in Narduzzi who gets out maneuvered week in and week out in league play.


If that game at Heinz Field was played this coming Saturday what would the line be on it ?


Enjoy the solace that comes with the win at Heinz this year as there will be a reckoning of epic proportions with the re match at the Beav in 2017.


48-14 ring any bells perhaps ;)

Unfortunately, just as there's a good chance of a Pitt team getting a comeuppance for an unlikely home win next year at Happy Valley, well, there's two sides to every coin...

Narduzzi didn't get outmaneuvered today.

I despise Clemson. Glad to see them get knocked off.

Loved that smug fuck Harbaugh getting beat too. I saw the article on ESPN about Michigan redecorating and transforming the pink locker room at Iowa. Wreaked of a smug move.

It's getting interesting for PSU now. If they take care of business the next two weeks, and OSU beats Michigan, we are gonna see PSU in their first B1G Championship game in INdy!

If tOSU beats That Team Up North, they're likely making the playoff with no championship game appearance necessary. Interesting times.

Touche ICE


The sPitters went into Death Valley and secured a great win. Period.


Ive been down there for games and it is no joke at all to go in there and get a Dubb.



Chaos is the name of the game in CFB. Pretty damn fun IMHO.

I can't believe the Nittany Lions are now favored (albeit slightly) to reach the Big Ten Championship game.

The fact they even have a chance at all is astonishing. If only they hadn't dumped that game to Pitt, given how things have gone, they'd even be in discussion for the four-team playoff.

Swiss- was away all weekend camping (reminder- never winter tent camp again- I'm too old for it) and missed everything. I was asleep on the couch for three hours Sunday after I got home and woke up just in time for the Steeler game (wish I'd stayed asleep!)

Zabo, agree on all counts, man. College football has delivered another exciting season, while well over half the pro games (and I pretty much only bother to watch the Steelers anymore) I tune into are borderline unwatchable.

Can't wait to see how this season plays out, and probably the best season for Pennsylvania college football in a long while. Big Ten East, and how it relates to the CFP will be interesting, too.

With Louisville loss, Penn State should be #7 next week, and if things work out with them winning out, beating Wisconsin for Big 10 Championship, would be no worse than #5 when playoffs are set. Need Washington or Clemson to lose, or maybe they get into Final 4 anyway (over the Fuckeyes, who they've beaten??).

You can guarantee that either #2 or #3 will loose when they play each other.

You certainly can. This will also (since Clemson and Washington are probably pretty set) prove that the Big 10 didn't need a championship game, because Ohio State and That Team Up North already play at the end of every year.

And Swiss, you should be mindful that your logic puts Pitt in the CFP.

1. Bama is a lock, they could even lose a game.
2. Clemson gets in if they win out.

3. Ohio State vs Michigan winner likely gets in regardless of them being B1G Champs.
4. Washington wins out, they probably make it.

5. Penn State or Wisconsin win out, they could go as B1G Champs.
6. Oklahoma vs WVU winner could leap frog some teams.

Everyone else is already eliminated most likely. Penn State needs to beat Rutgers, Michigan State, and Wisconsin plus have Michigan beat Ohio State and have either Washington or Clemson lose a game. And then Alabama would wax them by 30 in the BCS.

How so? Four losses.

You should know as well as any that I enjoy a little shit stirring when it comes to the fans of Pennsylvania's second place football team in 2016.

Who's the poster that's the PSU alum but holds an odd disdain for everything PSU? Oh yeah, that guy Fortythree. He may have starting "cutting" by now to quell his pain. :lol:
