Well, I doubt it's over. But they get harder & harder to flip later in the game. And Saban still has an in-home to make.
Seems like Foster doesn't want to play above the Mason-Dixon line either.
So much in your post that is easily refutable, but for now I'll just stick with the low hanging fruit.
First of all, are you actually going to sit there with a straight face and suggest that TV exposure at Pitt would even be remotely similar to TV exposure at Alabama? Your word "dense" comes to mind. At what point this year did anyone outside your own fan base and that of your opponent ever give a crap about watching a Pitt game on TV, except the Notre Dame game?
When was the last time Pitt played its SPRING GAME on national television?
Second, your comments about fans and game day atmosphere show that you're really pretty clueless about what you're talking about. Alabama signees in the past have commented about the impact of seeing close to 100,000 fans attend the spring game:
"Many who eventually signed with Alabama received their first exposure to the program at an A-Day game.
"That was my first time on campus. My first time here. First time I had been on a college campus," senior linebacker Nico Johnson said. "To witness something like that, it was amazing."
That's not just a full stadium, pal. It's the fanbase. If you can't grasp that, there's just no helping you.
Crimson Tide's annual spring scrimmage kicks off at 2 p.m. today and can be seen on CSS.

What's going on here. On one thread, Bama fans are nice and classy. On this one they're nasty.
How many national titles does the Tide have? We have nine
How many pro HOFers does the Tide have- we're tied for second all time
What's the average SAT score of entering freshman?
Ever hear of Governor GEORGE WALLACE?-You're still running a plantation.
Alabama has 14 national titles. That is the most of anyone, so we really can't go there.
Okay, I accept we can't go there then. How many Primantis do they have? Neil Young never sang a song putting us down. They overwhelmingly lead us in per capita strokes and hernias. Do they have an incline?
If this kid has to go to prep school, the deal is far from sealed.
Actually George Wallace make a change in his life (became a Christian), apologized for his actions, and carried the African-American vote to win in his final run for governor. It's not how you start ... it's how you finish that counts most.
Well if it wasn't for Bama recieving his services I would be sorry. Most of you on this board have been classy and I hate seeing a fan base dejected like this. Whatsome Bama fans do not realize is we were there just not to long ago when we were excited about a 3 star. 5 stars were out of the question. I remember watching the Tebow fiasco, thinking if we got him he could transform us back into the national title hunt. It stung when he did't pick us. I realize this stings worse, he was home grown got it. I will still root for you guys and good luck. I do not think this is over by a long shot either.
George Wallace was initially very liberal and lost an election because he was rather pro-African American. That's when he changed for the sole purpose of winning elections in racist Alabama. Wallace was always concerned about himself and his power. The man had about the biggest ego in the history of American politics. There's a reason the man married 4 times.
That's not all true. I knew him and he didn't die with the attitude he once had.
Don't you think that might have been because he was dying? Hell, just do a google search of the man's quotes. He was a pretty darn outrageous character. Many of the people that knew him best thought he was an egomaniac.
Again, it may not be all true, but I think that's a pretty consistent viewpoint across the board.
Why do you insist on continuing to make a fool out of yourself? This is your rebuttal to our point about TV exposure? A game against an FCS school? When was the last time a Pitt spring game was on ESPN? When was the last time Game Day showed up at Pitt? How many times in the last five years has Pitt played a TV game that had ratings anywhere near Bama games vs. LSU, Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia, Clemson, Va. Tech, Michigan, or the SECCG or BCSCG?
God, you're stupid.
Well, the rest of the country may write us off as inbred hicks who marry our cousins, but at least we leave the little boys alone. I mean, it's not like we had a football coach systematically rape God only knows how many boys over several years on one of our state university campuses...not even the campus of our most hated instate rival.
Seriously...someone at a state university in Pennsylvania talking about people in the state of Alabama being capable of doing terrible things?
You've made this a really entertaining thread pal, and while it's been great fun laughing at your moronic posts, I really only kept reading the thread hoping I'd find another one as stupid as this one of yours from the first page. I'm about to give up hope.
Apparently you're too stupid to realize that by continuing to reference Larry Fitzgerald, you're just playng into our hands.
Fitzgerald played at Pitt during the same era that Ronnie Brown and Cadillac Williams played at Auburn.
Using your logic, because Auburn put more all pro running backs in the NFL in the last decade, TJ Yeldon would have had a better chance at being better developed for the pros and being drafted higher if he had signed on with Gene Chizik a year ago.
What success Pitt players, or Bama players, may have had several years ago under different coachng staffs is pretty irrelevant when it comes to what may happen to today's recruits.
For his sake, it's a good thing that Foster has more brain cells than you do.
Well, it's probably because when, early on the first page, you, from a Pennsylvania state university alleged the "terrible things" Alabamians were capable of doing, all the Bama fans realized that you were just a fricked up retard with no capability for rational thought. You immediately start off the thread by insulting Alabamians and talking down at them. Jerry Sandusky was a coach at one of your schools, not ours.
It's not that you're stupid that people find offensive. It's that you're stupid and arrogant, and that's always going to make you an easy target.

I'm sure that i am stupid and arrogant. Continue to single me out .. on our board .. while i make no attempt to pursue you to your board to antagonize.
I hope you feel better after 4 consecutive posts to call me stupid.
That's a sign of great wisdom.

It's pathetic that these morons think people pay attention to Spring football games and that it counts as "exposure!" HAHA
And seriously how many people are tuning in on a beautiful fall saturday afternoon for ALabama and Mississippi State??? You freaking retards. Get a clue.
Every game is practically nationally televised. The sport has watered down the product. Exposure??? Yeah. I have NEVER in my life watched a spring game other than Pitt's. And i'm guessing most of the folks on this site would fall into the same category. Then go and ask people who don't even care enough to follow recruiting and ask them how many Alabama games they watch per year.
It's all regional.
And every point i made was true and valid. You can't logically pick what i say apart. All you do is show off that typical southern trash haughty attitude. GTFO. Go back and jerk off to some recruiting news.
My God man you cant be this dumb really can you?
Mr. 0008, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this forum is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Tell me what exposure even means? How does this benefit a recruit?
Are you talking about the ESPN hype machine?
I can watch Pitt spring games. They've been on TV .. and/or online.
But seriously. Define exposure in a way that explains how it benefits a recruit.
IS that all you guys can come up with? Over and over .. you say .. "man, you're dumb .. wow, that's just so dumb."
Do you think anyone here cares about what you think 10 seconds after they log off their computer?
Jesus Christ...you're embarrassing your fellow Pitt fans.
My fellow Pitt fans have agreed on the following points:
- Pitt develops talent as well as any school in the country
- Pitt's games are nearly all nationally televised
I have applauded your program for being dominant on the field and winning national titles. It offers a much better gameday atmosphere.
There is nothing idiotic about what i say. It's idiotic for you to continue to post on this site and for our moderators to allow it. It's boring having to read the same attacks over and over. YOu obviously care more about what we think than we care what you think. I'm not following you around. You're free to leave. If you were as intelligent and wonderful as you think then you'd enjoy this minor victory with some humility. But you can't, because that's not the southern way. You suffer from a massive inferiority complex ever since the civil war and civil rights movement. You NEED my approval. Well you don't have it. You can have our coaches and our players and our sport .. but you can't have my respect.
Neither of your points are true. Pitt is RARELY in big time NATIONAL TV games.
As of the past couple years Pitt is not devolping very many NFL players. They arent taking their classes and making them have 5-10 draftable guys out of it.
thats not saying that Pitt is a bad program, but a program that needs to be rebuilt.
Im surprised your site mods havnt revoked your membership to this site. You are truly dumb as a sack of bricks. You bring no value to this board and no one here seems to care about your invalid opinions.
