COLLEGE NEWS AND NOTES



--The AP poll is out, and Pitt is #28. Unfortunately, the poll stops at 25, so Wanny's boys have some work to do. Penn State is #7, while WVU comes in at #32. The Big East finally got a team in the top 25, as Cincinnati landed at #23 after their decimation of the entire Rutgers program yesterday.

--Everyone has their take on the booing of Bill "They're not saying Boo-urns" Stull, and Pitt Blather has combined them into a neat little package. Personally, I thought it was very premature, but on the other hand, this is Pittsburgh we're talking about, and not everything involving fans' perceptions of quarterbacks always make sense.

--Here's a great recap of Pitt-YSU from the good, bad, and ugly angles courtesy of the PG's Paul Zeise. And yes, all three angles were represented in the lopsided victory.

--King Pryor paid tribute to Mike Vick on his eye black during Ohio State's nail-biter with Navy this weekend, and one of Pryor's postgame comments on Vick has raised some eyebrows:

"Not everybody's the perfect person in the world. I mean everyone kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me, whatever. I think that people need a second chance, and I've always looked up to Mike Vick, and I always will."

--Mighty Cal U is off to their first 0-2 start since 1999 after a 17-10 loss in the final minute to #5 Bloomburg on Saturday night. I wonder if they boo their starting QB there, too?

"Everyone kills people....". Who knew? And I thought The Ohio St. University was all about academics.

O-H-I-O.

Who knew there was a difference between "killing people" and "murdering people". I guess in Pryor and Vick's world there is. Just like there's a big difference in killing and murdering dogs.

The Eagles just heard Pryor's comment and have him penciled in as their first round pick in 2012.

WOW.

I am stunned at Pryor's comment. I guess everyone sucker punches 60 year old janitors in the head during a brawl the broke out during an AAU basketball game, too.

I might not like Penn State, but that is precisely the reason I would rather see them win the Big Tenleven over OSU any given year.

Pryor is such a piece of garbage it's not even funny. I think all of us from Pitt and Penn State can be happy he's not wearing either of our uniforms.
