I mentioned in my rivalry article this morning that it's kinda weird that the Syracuse Orange and Pittsburgh Panthers powers-that-be just don't whip up a trophy for the two long-time rivals to play for. It's part of what we miss about the West Virginia rivalry and we've seen how even a dumb trophy idea uses the old "no such thing as bad PR" adage well.
Naturally, this got people thinking...
