Featured Fanpost: From A WVU Fan

At least one WVU fan thinks the Backyard Brawl should continue. Write your own Fanpost using the link to the right and we may publish it in the main section.

Losing the PITT game is a travesty. Every fan of PITT and WVU should be encouraging the AD’s to schedule this game ANNUALLY in football and b-ball. I can only imagine what Jack Fleming (WVU/Steelers legend) is thinking from above.

I understand it may be required due to logistics, initially, but in the long run these two schools are 69 miles from each other and have one of the best rivalries in all of sports. It doesn’t make sense how so many WVU and PITT fans think that it’s no big deal if this game is played or not. These rivalries enhance BOTH universities.

There were years (very recent ones in fact) when the VPI game was more important than PITT but Maryland? Never. Playing them to me is like playing Virginia, Wake Forest, NC State or Georgia Tech….Meh. Programs with zero football identity.

The PITT/WVU rivalry isn’t one that benefits one school more so than the other. It benefits both equally.
