Thread: West Chester at Kutztown

    Default West Chester at Kutztown

    Was nice to open the local paper and see this game preview as the lead on the sports cover today. It’s rare news organizations in Pennsylvania recognize teams not named Penn State play college football in this state.

    Pittsburgh media are always happy to talk about the latest Pitt misfortune. Big time Pittsburgh media haven't talked about college football outside of CFP, Penn State, or Pitt since the Cal debacle and really it was only Mark Madden trouncing on the idea of small college football.

    All about the clicks. And, unfortunately, nobody clicks on D2 or D3 stories.

    I think they do - for the player profile stories not the game stories. "Local College Roundup" isn't a compelling headline anyway. I imagine they get enough clicks on the IG page for Matt to still have a gig there.

    You said Pittsburgh media. The IG is a far cry from the Pittsburgh media.

    True. That's where I heard the story break that IUP had parted ways with TLT.

    This is the gist of it, unfortunately.

    In the early '80s, I covered a PSAC football beat in which I might be at IUP one week, West Chester the next, Slippery Rock the third.

    There hasn't been a word about PSAC football in The Patriot-News/PennLive in recent memory. Or any college football beyond FBS, for that matter.
