We have so many better options for neutral site games, why press for a matchup that will piss off your money men?

    If it were good business Weaver would have made it happen.
    After the last game where so much stuff was thrown at the players on the sidelines, I don't think Beamer wants to play them again.

    I'd be up for playing them if it meant dropping the FCS schools off the schedule, but I'd rather play OSU, Michigan, Wisconsin, etc, than WVU anyday.

    Playing them has more upside for us than for them - why help them recruit the east? Notice that Pitt isn't falling all over themselves to play them either.

    Yep, all of the fans who enjoy getting hit in the head with batteries & empty liquor bottles.
