Thread: How about scheduling Pitt?

  1. #1

    How about scheduling Pitt?

    They're playing right now on ESPN.....

    Advantages of scheduling Pitt: decent/respectable team, good-sized fanbase that will represent at Memorial, good & underrated roadtrip destination, Heinz Field, eastern time zone exposure?

    Not to mention getting to try one of these!

    Pittsburgh is an interesting city. Like Baltimore it is a ways from New York, so it avoids the massive inferiority complex that forces Boston and Philadelphia to emulate New York in matters in which they are obviously inferior-art, food, culture, etc. Instead you get a good working class ethos, nice ethnic neighborhoods and a good kielbasa sandwich which is all you can ask for.

    We should have similar requirements for all of our OOC opponents.

    Northwestern: deep dish pizza
    Texas: some good BBQ or Tex-Mex
    tOSU: Not sure...maybe that awful stuff they call "chili" in Cincinnati?
    Nevada: Prostitutes. (Okay...it's not a food, technically speaking)

    Doesn't B-more have an inferiority complex to D.C.?

    The Pitt campus also has this wacky innovation: the Cathedral of Learning. 500 feet, 36 floors of classrooms!

    Cignetti only lasted a year there? I thought he left because that was his "dream job"?

    Confirmed: I have a warped mind. The first things I thought of when I saw that building were snipers and suicides.

    No, I don't think the residents of the Charm City care that much about the sterile government town that is DC.

    During the war of 1812 the English General Ross burned the White House down and famously remarked, "tomorrow I dine in Baltimore or in hell." Ross of course was gunned down and died in Baltimore. I'd like to think the same thing would happen today although it probably would be someone like Snoop from the Wire pulling the trigger.

    HL Mencken later said of Ross's remarks, "dine in Baltimore or hell. How would he tell the difference?"

    I don't know if there's a rule that a city that's more than X miles from NYC won't "try to be NYC". Many people accuse Chicago, SF, and other cities (that are further from NYC than the 'Burgh and B-more) of doing so.

    NYC is the nation's most prominent city, so it's no surprise that this happens.

    Generally, those people are all from New York though.

    Ha, Philly may have an inferiority complex to NY, but in no way do they attempt to emulate NY. Philly is a blue collar city, through and through, and they know it and embrace it.
