    I doubt Oxy goes DII. Their noses are too far into the air to be associated with a classification that is mostly regional publics.

    Quad North was Butler, North Allegheny, North Hills, Seneca Valley, and Shaler. I feel like I'm missing someone. Ambridge?

    Yes but that's also a transient community. People move from Ambridge not to Ambridge. This isn't Gronk to Woodland Hills.

    I actually work for WVSU in Extension... I have a relative who works in the athletic dept as well.. so quite a bit of the stuff about pereception is from myself and many of my coworkers... I talked to my relative over Christmas break and they gave me the low down on whats happening... People are VERY excited... I am also an alum (my first year at State was 1994) and have never seen this much excitement over football...

    I just hope this coach can deliver
