  1. Yes we would. It's simple - if you keep beating everyone in your way and make it to the title game, you are one of the top two teams in the country that year. With a "one-and-done" system, I am never convinced we get the best two teams in championships. Two teams could play each other ten times with one team winning nine of them. But that odd tenth time gets rolled on the real game day, and you have an upset. However, we are both agreed on a playoff system. If the best two teams can't beat other teams, that's just the way it is. They had their chance to prove it. Rather see two teams that weren't supposed to be there prove they belong. And like McCall said, no matter who the best two teams are, deciding the championship with games is far, far better than a damn computer.
  2. Why? At that point, there's really no point to the BCS. And once again, I'd like to point out that without a playoff system, we'll never know if the top two teams are really the two best teams. Not sure we would get the two BEST teams with a playoff system, but certainly it would give the opportunity for other teams that aren't seen as stylish or hyped (blown) by the media to show what they are really all about. But you are absolutely CORRECT. We will never know who is good enough to make the cut. TCU beating Wisconsin last year in the Rose Bowl to me was proof that it's time to let more than just the two highest ranked teams in. Hell, the basketball tournament is expanding more! Why does this BCS have to continue with football? Money. I knew the answer. Still doesn't stop me from bitching about it.

  4. Especially from the Airport. From KPIT to the WVU campus is maybe 45mins tops. How fast are you driving? I live 30-40 minutes south of the airport in Pittsburgh and I'm still another 45 minutes at least from Morgantown. And yes, I am in direct line between the two. I still wouldn't call Morgantown isolated though. Many of the major colleges are a good distance away from a highly populated cities with airports.
  5. Quite the Collection! Just wondering, who's on the back of your White NorthStars jersey? Curt Giles, #2, with the C. That's a game used jersey. Got it from MeiGray back in the late 90's.
  6. Here is a picture of my authentic NHL jerseys. Some are game used. Around the corner are some replicas, including three Russian teams, various college teams, and one All-Star jersey. And then there are about eight soccer jerseys from some of the European powerhouses. The lovely pink robe is my wife's.
  7. I have met quite a few due to signings that were set up by a store that my sister worked at for a while. The three that stick out in my mind are Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion, Peter Stastny, and Cammi Granato. Boom Boom was chatting with everyone and really seemed to be having a good time talking about the old days. Stastny appeared genuinely amazed that so many turned out to get his autograph even though he had been, at the time, recently elected to the Hall of Fame. He was really humble. As for Granato, she seemed to enjoy the attention her and her teammates were getting after winning a gold medal at the Olympics (the signing was a few weeks after). I had asked if I could take a picture with her, and instead of just sitting and letting me kneel by her, she stood up and put her arm around me. She, along with the three others from the team that were signing that day, all took the time to be that personable. I believe that everyone there hoping to meet them really appreciated their friendliness.
