Nugs, do you know the difference between national and regional?

Just because they are on ABC does not make it a national game. Chances are that the game is only on in the Northeastern U.S. And depending on who else is playing at the same time, it probably isn't much more than PA. That is not national, sir.

If you're definition of national TV is being on ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or CBS, then I would bet that all of those other games will be on national TV. I'm pretty sure every Alabama game is on CBS or ESPN in Alabama every week and Oklahoma's games are all on ABC or ESPN in Oklahoma, etc., etc.

I mean you don't really think PSU is the only game covered by ABC every week do ya?

Nugsey, the CU Buffs last year had one creampuff-Eastern Washington, out of conference they played Colo State which is always A heated game, they played West Virginia, Fla State then on to the Big 12. Id take those non conference games to watch vs Penn States out of conference to wanna watch any day. Also why doesnt PSU travel once in awhile to play cream puffs, next year CU travels east to play Miami of Ohio at their home. I forgot they also travel to play West Virginia in Morgantown.

WHAT!?!?! The Ohio State/Penn State game at Happy Valley will be well worth the money spent on a season ticket! The PSU/Michigan game in 2008 was well worth my season ticket price!
Let's do the math...how much do you pay for a season tickets including the donation?

I could dump the big 10 anytime and go back to the days of playing Pitt, WVU, Alabama, Nebraska, etc.

The basketball schedule is just as bad.
Me too, I miss the days of playing Pitt, BC, Rutgers, WVU, ND. I'd rather see PSU in the Big East. It makes more geographical sense for one thing. It's too bad the Big East lost BC and VT to the ACC(who cares about miami).

I see your point, and agree. BUT, there has been several times that PSU has played on ESPN BUT there was a better game and they played the PSU game Nationally.

Last year I payed about $450 for my season ticket, that was with donation. There were 3 tickets. My seat was AWESOME too. South end zone corner 30 rows from field level, seat 25, opposite from Junior Student Section. In all honesty, the tailgating in the parking lot for a night game is well worth the price of a season ticket.

100% correct....with the way the BCS is set up, you simply can not afford to lose one of the non-conference games because you have to figure on losing at least one conference game. Anything more than 1 loss on the season won't give you at a shot at the big game so all the major schools are scheduling cupcakes.

I'm okay with Akron, Syracuse, Temple as every major program in the nation is scheduling these caliber teams....but my problem comes along with Coastal Carolina and Eastern Illinois. The Florida's and the Miami's started this trend of playing D1-AA schools and then Ohio State got into doing it with Youngstown so you knew it would spread throughout the conference and it certainly has.

OSU still plays Youngstown each year, Michigan got into the mix with App. State, Wisconsin with Cal-Poly, PSU the last two years, and Indiana, Illinois, and Northwestern have played one of the directional Illinois teams for years now. You shouldn't even get credit for beating one of these teams.....

....Maybe that's what Michigan was thinking! :dontknow:

I agree, but I am die hard Penn State fan and love watching them play, in person or on tv. I think we only stayed for 3 complete games. The rest we left in the third quarter. But still, the atmosphere is worth the price of a ticket.

Exactly. There is NOTHING to be gained from playing a D1-AA school. That trend only got started because the D1-A cream puffs started asking for too much money to come and get the !hit kicked out of 'em. So, the big schools went to the next lower division. Who knows what will happen if the D1-AA schools start asking for more money than the big boys are willing to pay.
