IMO, it is shameful for any perennial potential top 25 team with NC aspirations to schedule 1-AA teams unless there is a really valid reason. I think Florida HAD to do ita few years ago because there was literally no other team available, and obviously as pointed out, the Bucks tossing the Penguins a bone as a "Thank you" from Tressel. Those are the very rare exceptions, though...

Penn State had to schedule Youngstown State in 2006 because La. Tech dropped out at the last second due to the fact that their league expanded and also because of the fact that there scheduling format changed.

This year we have thrown bone like Ohio State did to Youngstown State. Coastal Carolina's AD if I'm not mistaken, is a Penn State Alum. Though I do not understand why we have Eastern Illinois or Youngstown State coming up down the line.

BRING BACK PITT vs. PENN STATE. Hell, schedule some other games that are more respectable.

Just a word of note that we are not afraid to play them when we have to.

I'm not a buckeye fan, but in their defense:
They have signed the following games so far:
home and home with Miami Fla, 2010, 2011
home and home with Cal, 2012, 2013
home and home with Va Tech, 2014, 2015
home and home with Oklahoma, 2016, 2017
home and home with Tennessee, 2018, 2019

They are trying to build out of conference matchups. Now they need to stop with the Akrons and Toledos for a while.

USC is next two years. They've also played Texas, Washington State in '02 (When WSU was ranked #7), they played Washington and NC State in 03, NCST and Oklahoma St in 04, and they have a few other major ooc games in the works. They do not shy away from big games early in the season.

And, as I've clearly stated before, they play in-state teams to keep the revenue in Ohio. Miami and especially Cincinnati are certainly not creampuffs. That won't change, nor should it.

I especially like the home game against Texas where Limas Sweed catches a TD pass. its on the Youtube highlights for Limas. nice catch, beat two buckeyes to the endzone.
