A Blue and Gold Homecoming

The Pitt/Navy kickoff on October 18th is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. More importantly than that is the fact that it will be Navy's homecoming. I'm not going to lie, I really don't know much about Navy's tradition and all that comes along with being a Navy fan. The one thing I do know is that there are plenty of Panther fans preparing to make the trip to Annapolis, MD.

The Cat Basket is just one of the few groups of Pitt fans that will be going to cheer on our Pitt Panthers for what should be a great revenge game for us. Joining the Cat Basket will be most of the leaders of the Oakland Zoo as well as many members from the Pitt Drumline.

If you were interested in going to the game there are still tickets available through Navy. I'm encouraging everyone who has the slightest of interest in this game to make the short trip and give our Panthers an added boost. Like I said, I don't know much about the atmosphere at Navy football games, but there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to travel well to this game. I'm hoping that we not only get a few thousand to go, but get a loud, boisterous few thousand to go and make an impact for our team. While we won't be able to out draw the Navy fans, hopefully we can reduce their advantage like we have seen other teams do to us. From what I've seen from Pitt fans, those that travel are very vocal in their support for the Panthers. That is why it is important that YOU join us and do your part to help our Panthers on the road.

I was wondering if you or any of the other posters had any thoughts about this week's games, since we have a bye and all.

I'm very intrigued by the Red River Shootout at noon, and LSU-Florida at 8. I'll also be taking an interest in the Notre Dame-UNC game and the Noles-NC St.

It will be a glorious day of gluttony and boozing.
