overlook a great NFL player from your favorite college team because he plays/played for an NFL team that you don't like?

This guy seems to have done just that.

What am I missing here? He seems to be praising him even though he doesn't play for the Ravens. Upon looking into the rest of the posts int he thread, there is even one guy who shows love for Troy Polamalu.

MJG, I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on this.

As a Planet-Renowned PSU Homer, I feel the following:

-- I, generally, stop following PSU Players once they get into the pros if they are not part of the Steelers. I do see a line of demarcation. When someone becomes a Steeler, I am a fan of theirs - even if they are from a college team I despise such as Michigan or "The U". Likewise if a PSU player goes to an enemy team, I don't "pull" for them. Here are the exceptions:

A LONG time ago, when I first graduated from PSU, I followed some of the players that were in school with me and pulled for them (This was Curt Warner, Todd Blackledge days).

When PSU was having a run of succesful college RB that tanked at the pro level, I was pulling for PSU backs, just so it would not reflect badly on PSU and impact recruiting.

When I have lived in an area that had another pro team with PSU players (mainly Washington DC), I kind of followed and pulled for those players AS LONG AS IT DIDN'T IMPACT THE STEELERS.

There are a few instances with a player that I have a soft spot for or if a player gets on a hot streak (like LJ was a few years ago rushing), that I will kind of pull for them AS LONG AS IT DIDN'T IMPACT THE STEELERS.

I thought everyone knew that Jack Ham was the best linebacker to come out of PSU. So what I was getting at is he overlooks Ham because Ham was a Steeler and instead makes that declaration about Pos.

I always cheer for Pitt players to perform well. This year's Superbowl worked out great for me, because, Larry Fitzgerald played great, but, the Steelers won the game. I never want a Pitt player on an opposing team to win a game, but, I do hope that they play well.

Oh, and by the way, the guy that believes that Poz is greatest LB to ever come out of PSU is either 12 years old or in dire need of psychological treatment. No one was better than this man.

I will always cheer for WVU players, as long as they don't play for the Patriots. That is my one exception. Watching Steve Slaton get all those yards last year put a big smile on my face.....after the Steelers stuffed him in week 1.

I'm in Wilkes-Barre right now, actually. My parents still live in Moosic (yeah, it's just up the road from W-B a little bit). I live further up the road in Clarks Summit, which is just north of Scranton. Even though I work in W-B, I've never been to that soccer dome thingy (I don't know what it is called either), because whenever my kids play soccer (they are not in any competitive tournaments yet), they go to the Riverfront Sport Complex in Scranton, since it is a heck of a lot closer to where we live. The only time I take them down to Wilkes-Barre is to the Wachovia Arena for AHL hockey games and the like.

He would have graduated in 1990 if he had not dropped out. Never went to one Liberty football game (Sam Rutigliano was our head coach at the time). I never met him, however, I did see EG at the 1990 graduation ceremony after he had been drafted by the Steelers. He was BMOC, literally.
