So, the last game for the foreseeable future at Pitt has sold out. The last time that happened was, well, the last time we played in the Ketchup Bowl. The Pitt AD said that there will really be no way to know if Penn State fans outnumber the home crowd. I think we will know. I would love to see Coach Granklin call for an Away White Out ore something just because.

DE/DT Ryan Bucholtz retiring due to back injury. Hurts depth at DE and he was capable of moving inside on passing downs should open up playing time for Yetur Gross Matos, Shane Simmons and Shaka Toney

Oh damn, that is bad news. Although the DE depth is pretty good, just young and somewhat inexperienced. Best wishes to Ryan.

I don't think anything is going on other than a run of bad luck. Two of these guys had heart conditions that thankfully were discovered. Brown's injury last year was very severe unfortunately. The rehab is taking a long time. He's going to graduate in December so I don't blame him for moving on with his life.

Last I checked, it was still TBD but I expect it will be prime time provided both teams ate unbeaten. Sadly, forme, that is parents weekend at William and Mary and my wife wants us to visit the boy and go to the game. For some reason, W&M have that game at 6:30.

They now have this new-fangled technology that allows you to record stuff and watch at a future time. You both should look into that.
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?
