Featured Fanpost: Now Is The Time For Pitt Football

Reader 8thlight checks in with a Fanpost. Use the links over to the right and we may publish yours here on the main section.

With the impending move to the ACC as well as our annual series with Notre Dame possibly coming to an end or at least being drastically altered, this is the perfect time for Pitt to start working towards being the program that it wants to be. I'm not talking about dreams of returning to 1976 and national titles as much as being a nationally relevant in general.

After joining the ACC we will have 9 conference games leaving us with 3 out of conference games to work with.

Why not go for a schedule similar to a traditional Notre Dame schedule without any lower level teams on it at all? I'd love to see a schedule with routine trips to WVU, Ohio State/Michigan as well as maybe a trip out west to Stanford or UCLA. No more I-AA or FCS schools. Pitt should schedule strictly BCS schools from here on out.

There's no benefit to scheduling Youngstown State or any other "cupcake" at this stage of Pitt's development. They won't bring people into the stadium and people will only care about the game if the Panthers lose. I'd gladly play ND every three years if the Backyard Brawl could be reinstated with maybe a few road games in Ann Arbor or to the Rose Bowl to face UCLA.

If Pitt wants to be considered a big boy, let's put our big boy pants on take this show on the road.
