Pitt is making the wise move of offering free tickets to students willing to travel to the Meineke Car Care bowl game. A nice gesture, but I'd be surprised if more than a couple hundred took advantage of it. It's just a bad time of year.
Also, the Fighting Wannstaches have brought up something I haven't heard about this year. If I'm not mistaken, Pitt urged people to buy tickets to the Sun Bowl, even if they couldn't go. The tickets were then donated to people in the area who could make it. I haven't seen anything like that this year, but Pitt really should be encouraging it.
