    Default I hate to be "that guy"

    ...but do we really need this many Penn State threads? I know we don't get a ton of traffic but we have a monster PSU thread for some of these. Of course some are relevant but it's getting a little bit excessive to have 2/3rds of all recent topics be about Penn State.

    On idiot's opinion...

    Two more points:

    Yes, I created another PSU thread.

    Was going to edit, but I feel as if it really hits the "idiot" part home.

    Classic....I don't disagree but until someone stomps their team's a$$ I think it's going to stick around.

    Talk is and always has been driven by the posters who are active.

    If you don't want to talk about Penn State, start a thread about something else.

    There are a lot. For a while, I felt like every other thread was "Iowa vs ....". I think it reflects the importance of the team involved (ok, not Iowa vs Northwestern, that didn't need to happen). Right now, PSU seems to be the most important given the run they are on.

    In addition, the trend seems to be have the thread before the match and then an additional one after the match. Maybe we could consolidate those...

    Teams relevance directly correlates to more threads. I see your point Gantry, but there's a reason they're talked about so much.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    It is a little disgusting since the Penn State faithful were nowhere to be found just a few short years ago. But, fair weather fans come out of the woodwork when they have a good team. Give em a couple more years. They'll quietly go away.
