Yeah but our basketball team is...LOL
Having read some this bantering one thing I have noticed - Bama folks are classy when they've earned the right to be snobby and yet WVU folks (we're used to them) are snobby when they've earned nothing but road kill. Beat ND
There's no way West Virginia fans have access to the interwebz. Do they?
I'm lost..... You don't think is a better football program than Alabama?
A word in your sentence is lost too.
Who are you to look down on Alabama??? You live in Pittsburgh. That town is almost as depressing as Detroit. Tuscaloosa is far and away a better atmosphere and life than Pittsburgh. Even people from Scranton know that Pittsburgh sucks.
Alabama fans are proving to be as stupid as WV and PSU fans. Actually .. i think PSU fans are easily smarter than these morons.
How many players did Bama have in the pro bowl last year? How many did Pitt have?,,,I'm waiting...
We're talking about putting guys in the NFL. What they do once they get there is on them and their coaches.
Paul Chryst and his coaching staff had nothing to do with developing those players that were mentioned anyway. That's not saying they are not capable of doing so because obviously they haven't had a chance to prove that yet.

Pitt has more players in both the NFL and college football hall of fames. You want to try that again?
Can we all agree that ALabama and Pitt are absolutely equal in player development?
A. Bama recruits better talent and therefore will put more players into the NFL and they will be higher round draft picks .. and likely to be more productive in their careers
B. There is no evidence to suggest prospects who are interested in a pro career would be hurt by choosing Pitt. We have done exceedingly well at producing NFL talent for many years .. including recent history.
So this is not an advantage for either school ... and THAT was my original point.
Do you want to discuss what the advantages are of attending either school?
Philly + Bama = box of rocks for brains
Literally just read this entire thread from its origin... And now I'm upset I can't get back those 10 minutes. Not to be a meanie, but Bama and Pitt fans arguing over who has the better ANYTHING, is nucking futs. I understand your guys' irratation about SEC dominance, but 6 in a row doesn't happen by accident. Maybe 2 or 3, but not 6. And there is AT LEAST a 50-50 chance it will be 7. The northeast and Midwest dominate Pro football, college basketball, and are passionate about the MLB. We OWN college football. There is no debate here. Anything football related is better at Bama than Pitt, period.

Yet you guys are all on a Pitt board debating just that.
I'm going to try and simplify this instead of writing four paragraphs. Alabama is a better choice in all aspects of anything involving the actual playing of the game that can be measured with actual statistics. If you want to get into all of the emotional aspects of a Pitt/Bama, home/away from home argument then by all means, do so. If the kid chooses Pitt, it's safe to say that he made that decision based on external factors, such as his mother's opinion, distance from home, friends at Pitt, etc etc. If he chooses Bama, it's going to be a straight football decision. I'm not trying to offend any of you Pitt fans, or even gloat about Alabama's recent dominance. In my opinion, this has all the makings of a head vs heart decision. Do not misunderstand me though, if he chooses Pitt, that would not be a bad decision. It's just the wrong decision if he is making his choice based on where he is most likely to succeed, relative to what each respective school can offer him.
Should Robert Foster play in the SEC? To better answer that question I'll ask another... Would Johnny Manziel win the Heisman is he wasn't playing in the SEC? Short answer, no. The reason why Manziel's numbers were so amazing was the fact that he was playing the best defenses in the country week in/out. If TAMU were still in the big 12, he would've been another mobile QB running and passing around in a conference which doesn't play defense.
Time to lock this thread....Both of the teams fans are giving me a headache
Foster will hopefully choose bama, because he listens to his daddy and he wants to win a National Championship and play for the guy who might go down as the best College Coach ever..Nick Saban, all bias aside If he chooses Pitt good for him, but I hope we get him.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
How many of those 20 were 1st rounders compared to Bamas numbers?
What do you define as success? A national title? I agree that he would have a much better chance of winning a national title at ALabama.
What other type of success are you talking about?
And one of the top RBs in the country picked Pitt over your school just last year.
If you put up numbers like that in the ACC i think you'd win the heisman. Of course .. the ACC defenses haven't allowed that to happen.
But it's pretty stupid to choose a college based on Heisman dreams.
