This is simply an opine piece from Happy Valley, but it's interesting that the Lions (from this particular observer) are interested in playing WVU. However, I totally understand them wanting to play us as opposed to the irrelevant team in Oakland who just joined a non "Big 4" conference. I don't think I'd have much interest in playing them at this time. They are very much damaged goods and will likely suffer athletically for 10-15 years. Couple the worst scandal in collegiate sports history w/ population shifts southward/westward and you have a much lesser Penn State in the coming years.
Top 5 teams I'd LOVE to see WVU play (in no particular order):
1. Ohio State
3. Alabama (will play in 2014 Kickoff Classic)
5. Virginia Tech
(Pitt would be 6th as I'm a fan of the Backyard Brawl)
