Seems to me that when SU is top 15 and playing a top 5 team its pretty good at the dome.. been to Wv for games like that before and it doesn't compare in crowd noise. but under the lights dressed in yellow towels it always seems great..
WVU deserves better than the NNBE. They, Pitt, and SU while didn't get respect for playing in the Big East nationality had cache were B1G, SEC, Big XII, PAC-12, and ACC fans "respected" enough that if any of the three were where Cincinnati was 2 years ago 12-0 would have said the Big East is doing fine. The reason why is because those three have a tradition of being solid teams through the 60's,70's,80's, 90's. 00's, and aren't flash in the pans who have taken advantage of a SUPREMELY water-downed conference.
I wish WVU well, and hope they get into the SEC or Big XII which allows to get out of the Big East sooner.
