I've got to say that when I avoid the internet I miss some of the most unexpected stories. Last time I took a break for the day to golf I come back and DeChellis is stepping down. Fired would have been surprising, but stepping down was shocking.
So yesterday, I get a chance to check the web and now Pitt and Penn State are playing a home-and-home. The rivalry is an important part of Penn State history, and I'm happy to see that we've got a few games coming up, but I don't really want to play them every year. It isn't a knock on their program, which in all honesty isn't what is was, but I'd rather not see the rivalry forced down our throats.
And by that I mean turning a Penn State-Pitt game into something like Ohio State 2005. A constant attempt to recreate something that isn't anymore. I don't mind playing Pitt, but I don't want us all pretending that it's going to be the same it was 20-30 years ago. Even then, the HATE HATE HATE seems to have been a little overblown.
Don't get me wrong, it'll be fun to play them, but I can't take year after year of "PENN STATE???? MORE LIKE STATE PENN!!!"
For real. I'll ban you if you put that joke in your subject line.

These poor people get trolled hard in the comments.
The whole post is good, but what we're after is the mock-up of the arena down at the bottom.
Well, this man gambles. So he must know what he is talking about.
