Default Re: Pitt fans, how do you feel about possibly joining the Big Ten?

But like I said, moving to the Big 10 would mean that their football program would go from the top tier of the conference to the second tier of the Big 10.

In the Big East, they are a dominant force in football and basketball. That might mean something to Pitt.

Not to mention I see Penn State fighting adding Pitt. Paterno doesn't want to play them, and if they joined the Big 10 then the two schools would be in the same division and playing every season.

Congrats to the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins
