    alexhortdog95 They earned em back!

    Barry been gone pretty much from the public eye for about 6 years, and NOW he wants to start talking a bunch of ballshiat....
  2. VBSJ

    VBSJ Newbie

    That and to take attention away from Bret Bielema taking off and bad-mouthing his school as "Small Time" (more/less).

    I don't believe for a second Penn State was about to leave the Big Ten, especially since the school is about to lose a good amount of money in settlements.

    So you're going to go to the ACC and make less TV money?

    There's no harm in Delaney having Alvarez say this. Right now, there is a vocal fan minority crying that the B1G hates PSU. Even tho it's on the fringe, they exist. I don't think for a second it was a factor. Saying "we're doin this for you!" pretty much shuts them up on the brink of increasingly [Mark May]ty years for PSU football...without actually doing anything for them specifically.
  4. Also of note (http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/sports/182573751.html):

  5. Bucky32

    Bucky32 Junior

  6. bassbuckeye07

    FSU
  7. I'm guessing FSU, which would be a shame.
  8. Mike80

    Mike80 make it happen

    Either them or UCONN.

    Goddammit. If FSU wants in, they ought to get in. Better than hoping that [censored]ing Indiana and Minnesota somehow start attracting 5 star recruits.
  10. Fuck the FSU talk. They're a scummy, cheating program. Their academics suck and most of their fans are stupid rednecks.

    Anybody in the league who has actually accomplished something can go ahead and talk [Mark May]. The real problem right now is that there aren't enough people qualified to do it.

    Having a team in our conference that is so far away and isolated would bother the [Mark May] out of me.

    You don't quite understand the ped aggy mind. Remember, I've lived among them like Jane Goodall amongst the apes.

    Big Ten says and rest of the world hears: We got you a couple of Eastern schools to act as rivals now shut the fuck up and assume the position.

    Ped Aggy hears: Without the glory of Penn State, the BTN is worthless. We have finally realized that we desperately need you. The door is open for you to demand that JoePed's name goes back on the trophy. You get to have your own ref crews in State College. If you ever leave us, Rutgers and Maryland are sure to follow you out the door.

    The Big Ten needs to treat Penn State the way that Ohio State has learned to treat the Fredo schools: make them feel that they're part of things but never, EVER let them forget that's your boot resting upon the backs of their necks.

    After the crap they pulled, they should be grateful that the other B1G schools will even take the same field as them on Saturday.

    I could see a school like VaTech trying to put themselves in the best position finachally before another school takes that slot. I could see why some would wait for UVA too; if there was a chance for VaTech and UNC I'd consider that a win. You get more grads with VaTech each year than you do with UVA. Sure UVA is the better school but the difference there is no where near the difference between UNC and NC State.
