a now marginal program which hasnt been relevant in some time.  Even people a little older than
havent seen a time when pitt was relevant in their football watching life.

but you are a big penn state fan who knows the history of them and their rivals pretty well Im
guessing.  For people(even old enough to remember) other than penn state fans or wvu fans, pitt just
wouldnt be on the radar.  

Honestly out of all the power 5 teams now, they are definately in the bottom third in terms of
interest, fan base, and just the overall status of the program.
