Panther Rants is The Onion of Pitt Sports. Formerly a serious recruiting blog written by a serious recruiting writer, the site was taken over by mediocre bloggers that provide satire, sarcasm and anything but serious information. Everything on this site is tongue-in-cheek and is not meant for serious consumption.

Yes, Virginia,

Penn State is no more relvant than Pitt.

In case you doubted the veracity of our previous claim, Penn State has not had a legitimate Heisman candidate in over a decade.

Voting Results 1st 2nd 3rd Total
Carson Palmer 242 224 154 1328
Brad Banks 199 173 152 1095
Larry Johnson 108 130 142 726

Finishing with just over half as many votes as the winner is not being a contender. Hell, he finished behind some guy who plays in the CFL now. And Jesus, he isn't even the most famous Larry Johnson in sports in the past 15 years.

It must hurt Nittany Lion fans to know that as much of a joke as Pitt football has been in the last 20+ years, Pitt has had more legitimate Heisman hopefuls than Penn State.
