Pitt at #23 in the AP top 25. Not bad I guess. Still not ranked in the USA today poll.

An offer he Knew would never be accepted.

Only one person stands in the way of the rivalry being re-newed.

Seriously...Pitts offer is a home and home series, but Joe Pa refuses that and will only sign up for a 2-1 deal. Which is a ridiculous request in a rivalry matchup.

I'd get it if this was a game that was played only 10 times before, but it is a game that has been played nearly 100 times and Joe Pa is still mad at Pitt for joining the Big East and not going with his proposed Eastern Conference. As if he was in charge of the entire thing.

Everyone agrees, its Joe Pa holding up the renewal of the rivalry and everyone also pretty much understands that the second he isn't coaching PSU anymore, Pitt and Penn State will be playing again in a normal, rivalry based, home and home matchup.

I won't be stunned if that is the case. Right now If I'm in Paterno's shoes, I'd be agreeing to a contract that was home and home. Maybe a 10-20 game deal with both teams hosting even amount?

I just did some research on who we have contracts with Non Conference between 2009 and beyond.

2009-Akron, Syracuse, Temple, Eastern Illinois
2010-Youngstown State, @ Alabama, Kent State, Temple
2011-Alabama and @ Temple (2 Open Dates)
2012-@ Virginia, Temple (2 Open Dates)
2013-Virginia (3 Open)
2014-Nebraska (3 Open)
2015-Nebraska (3 Open)

As For Pitt
2009-Youngstown State, Buffalo, Navy, NC State, Notre Dame
2010-Miami, Notre Dame, New Hampshire (2 Open Dates)
2011-Iowa, Buffalo, Notre Dame (2 Open Dates)
2012-Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Central Florida, Buffalo (1 Open)
2013-Virginia Tech, NC State, Navy, Notre Dame (1 Open)
2014-Notre Dame( 4 Open)

Looks like 2011 could be the earliest Penn State could attempt to pick Pitt up and have it fit.
