With all the recent talk about Ohio State improving its schedule in future years to help get into the playoffs, I think adding a home and home with Pitt would be a good idea:
1. Strength of Schedule - adding Pitt would improve tOSU's SOS compared to some of the out of conference teams they currently play. Pitt usually fields a decent squad and is part of an AQ conference, so tOSU would get props for that alone. However, they're not an elite team, so a victory should be expected.
2. Proximity - Pittsburgh is about a 3 hour drive from Columbus, so fans wouldn't have to go too far to take in the game. It would also help with recruiting as it seems western PA still produces some good talent. Finally, as a Browns fan it pains me to type this, but after a recent trip to Pittsburgh with some buddies I must admit it's a cool city. So, it would be a fun trip for our fans.
3. Mark May (saved the best for last) - it's been well documented around these parts how much Mark May loves to troll Ohio State fans. What better revenge than to schedule his alma mater and dish out some beat downs? Honestly, seeing his reaction on espn would be reason enough.
What does everyone think?
