No, this is not a topic on the Steelers' offensive line.  More on that later.

I am now the host of a daily show, The Home-Field Advantage, on ESPN 1400/97.1fm in upstate SC.  We're on from 9-10 am, and you can catch us at espnspartanburg.com

Unlike our previous ventures, we are owned by the station--which means we get PAID, but we don't dictate all of our content.  We are mandated to do a lot of SEC/ACC/Panthers (ugh), but of course I have to work in my Steelers whenever possible.

We also have a new blog, http://homefieldupstate.blogspot.com.  Would love for you guys and gals to check it out.

Oh, and yes, I am (embarrassingly) on twitter:  TheRev78.

Please use your power to advocate for WVU to the SEC.

I will be shocked if this does not happen.  Point was made that WV is not fertile recruiting ground.  But, Western PA and Eastern OH are--and WVU gives the SEC a corridor to those territories.

I think there is a chance that SEC goes for A&M, WVU, VaTech.  They would love to add Oklahoma, but that's questionable.

Congrats!  Gotcha bookmarked.  Hey, I think Cam Newton surprised everyone except maybe Cam Newton, just ask Cam Newton.

I don't think Va Tech would jump out of the ACC so soon, unless they think the league is going to collapse.  They've got it pretty good over here.

Be funny as hell if A&M got into SEC to avoid Texas, then Texas came along right after them.  Don't think it will happen though.

SEC should try for OK and OK State, A&M and W.Va, assuming they can't/won't raid ACC.  ACC should also look at WVU, then Pitt, Louisville.  Love for them to give Boston College back to Big East.

Dang - Preach is a paid talking head.  That is awesome. 

You gotta float a MGS reference out there some time this year.  "who would have thought the Steelers woud be 0-3 this season?  The fans in pittsburgh and fans on steeler forums, like MGS, are beside themselves".

BOOOOOM

If they add those three, they'd have to add Oklahoma (or someone else), as that would put them at 15. Personally, I see them going to 16, so as not to be outdone by the Pac12/16. In addition to A&M, I think it's WVU, VT and Mizzou. WVU is the 16th team (announced a year after the 14th).

Looks like the Okies (Sooners and Cowboys) are more focused on going to the PAC 12.  Fine.  I'd prefer the SEC simply for the higher level of competition and what I think would be a better recruiting pool, but who knows?

I don't get why any player or team (especially those not even close to the west coast) would want to go to the PAC-X. The world revolves around the east coast, and that's where the primary exposure is.

I'm a fan of the Pac10 and the reason the exposure isn't that great has a lot to do with the time difference as well....I finally got to see Arizona State on TV last weekend and was up till 2 am for the OT win against Mizzou

Yeah, I'm a Pac-10/12 fan too. Really, the only exposure kids are looking for are the scouts, and they're gonna be watching your tapes, no matter what. Time & location are irrelevant these days, IMHO.

I went to Tech and I think it would be crazy for them to leave for the SEC (are you listening WVU). Tech has won the ACC 3 out of 6 years and gone to the championship game and lost in one other one (the other 2 years they just missed the championship game in 3rd). Why leave when you are a legitimate threat to win the conference and play in a BCS bowl game every year (even in down years) so that you can go to the SEC where you will finish 4th or 5th every year? It would be even worse for WVU who has gone to a BCS game twice in that same time period, but before Miami and VT left for the ACC hadn't won the conference since 1993 (the first year of full conference play).

It would be even worse for WVU who has gone to a BCS game twice in that same time period, but before Miami and VT left for the ACC hadn't won the conference since 1993 (the first year of full conference play).

The difference between WVU and VT in regard to their respective conferences is that A) the ACC has a tie-in with the Orange Bowl; the BE has no tie-ins with a BCS bowl. The BE winner is always the last one to be selected by the BCS bowl with the last pick, and if the BE continues to suck, it may not even retain its auto bid. B ) The BE sucks - from a quality standpoint, I'd say it's on par with the ACC. However, perception is reality, and the networks, voters and fans in general seem to perceive the ACC to be significantly better. There's no chance the ACC would ever lose its auto-bid.

Right now, WVU would be better than at least 3/4 of the teams in the SEC (LSU, Bama are the only two I'd say are definitely better at this point, and we'll see how WVU compares head-to-head with LSU in a couple of weeks). In some years, WVU could easily be at the top of the SEC, but could also be middle of the pack or worse (in other words, I don't think it should be assumed that seven to nine wins is the pinnacle for WVU). That said, I haven't looked at it recently, but I'd say a lower-ranked SEC team (say, finishing fifth or so) would receive an infinitely better bowl than the second or third place BE team.

Funny thing:  We had a Steeler fan call today to weigh in on His Holiness Ted the Bruschi I.  It made me sick to my stomach to actually come to the defense of Chad Johnson, but at least it came at the Pastries expense.

While we're on my favorite subject, which is me (of course), we also have a blog at homefieldupstate.blog spot.com.  I'll be posting an article about early NFL overreactions--a la Fat Sapp saying the Steelers are washed up after one game.
