  1. The Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a really cool idea but isn't the issue Mark Davis not wanting to spend any money on a temporary facility?

    That last sponsor most likely cut them a pretty nice check, remember the AAF, XFL2.0 and companies like MGM Grand are banking on the betting gimmicks to catch on.

    The XFL may be making a comeback

    I currently live in Detroit and was born and raised in Pittsburgh and I can't see more than 10,000 people showing up for minor league football in those cities.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Pitt is wearing their "throwbacks" in the ACC Championship Game! Hopefully Clemson wears Orange and we get a color vs. color game.

    The XFL2.0 is McMahon's last chance to prove he can be successful at something outside of Pro Wrestling, that's why he's going solo on the venture.
  6. I'm a Steeler fan and while I like the jerseys I really dislike the pants, either stick with the normal gold pants or go with the white ones from the 1960's throwbacks. Also, I would like to see them swap the helmet numbers to gold to match the jersey numbers.

    Is McMahon really willing to lose that much or is it bluster? Remember this is Vince McMahon we're talking about. Also isn't most of the money for the XFL 2.0 coming from the WWE's deal with the Saudi's? Sure he's "personally" financing it but he's making back what he cashed in with the deal the WWE has with the Saudi's. The WWE is taking a ton of heat over their upcoming show in Saudi Arabia and have quietly been making plans to move it to the UK if things get even hotter, if that deal is called off or reduced it will effect the XFL 2.0 financing.

    Forgotten Rivalries

    Pitt and WVU will play a 4 year series starting in 2022 and it's been rumored that it'll lead to them playing more often.

    True, but I can see Nike mucking that up.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    All signs are pointing to Pitt changing to these colors for all sports sometime this summer, if they do all these uniforms need are a few tweaks to the stripes and they're good to go.
  12. With the exception of Maryland, UConn and UMass this conference almost happened in the early 80's, the biggest reason for it not happening was that Penn State, Syracuse and Boston College couldn't work out how to split the conference revenues. Penn State wanted to keep most of it's football money but split basketball evenly while Syracuse and BC wanted it the other way around, Pitt somehow gets blamed for killing it off by taking the Big East offer for basketball but that really didn't happen until the money split issue reached an impasse where neither side was going to budge. Rival wise this conference should breakdown like this. Army vs. Navy - no brainer with this one. Pitt vs. Penn State - was one of the fiercest rivalries in college football until Penn State left for the Big Ten, it's still pretty strong even though the current series isn't going to be renewed after next seasons game. WVU vs. Maryland - they've been playing each other off and on since 1919 and had an uninterrupted run from 1980 to 2015 and will play again in 2020 & 2021. Temple vs. Rutgers - Mainly due to the locations and neither really has a rival. Syracuse and Boston College - started playing each other in 1924 then played yearly from 1971 to 2004, took a break when BC went to the ACC but started up again as a non-conference game in 2010 then a yearly game when Cuse joined the ACC. UConn vs. UMass - like Temple vs. Rutgers due to their locations and lacking any rivals.

    2018 NFL Season

    Henson dominated against schools where the best athletes played non-school affiliated hockey or soccer and didn't recruit players from Detroit. Put him in Ohio or Western PA and he's good but nowhere as good as he was in Brighton.

    Panthers to Replace NFL Shield with Logo at Mid-Field

    The past few years they've had the Steelers logo at the 50 all season, for Pitt games they paint it white and add the script Pitt.

    Alternate SPORTS! History Thread

    A Unitas-Bradshaw-Marino transition would have never happened in that scenario, if the Steelers have Unitas in 1969 they don't go 1-13 and get the #1 pick in the draft which they used to select Bradshaw. The trade that gave the Bears the third pick in the 1965 Draft was more of an economic move than a bonehead move, Art Rooney didn't have the cash to compete in the war with the AFL for draft picks, that's why they traded out of the first round in 1961, 1963, and 1965. If the Steelers keep the 1965 pick Butkus is most likely a Bronco.
