Sorry to post a few OT threads on the main board, but there's no board for the Pirates or Pitt news.
This is pretty exciting to me since I live in NC. I'll get to see more Pitt games. It's probably good for the basketball program because of the strength of the ACC in hoops. It'll be a tough schedule every year. But there's gotta be a draw to kids getting to play against Duke/UNC every year.
Pitt should be able to do well in football. And it will probably be fun for the kids to get to play FSU, Miamia, GTech, etc.
I used to like the Big East as a kid. But overall I think this is a good move. Can't wait til 2013.
