An article in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review states what has essentially become common knowledge by this point: Pitt is not a factor.
"Pitt's out, period. I won't go there, for sure," Pryor said. "I get false stuff said about me all the time. I'm used to it."Stadiums of schools that Pryor has stated he is still interested in (Capacity, and average percentage of capacity per game in '07)
Pryor already took an official visit to Ohio State and said he counts Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, Louisiana State, Oregon and Penn State among his finalists.
"I want to play in a college town, a facility that has 100,000 and is packed," Pryor said. "That's how I want to do it."
- Michigan: 107,501 (103%)
- Penn State: 107,282 (102%)
- Ohio State: 102, 329 (103%)
- Louisiana State: 91,600 (101%)
- Florida: 88,548 (101%)
- Oregon: 54,000 (109%)
By this criterion, all but the Big Ten schools (and maybe LSU or Florida, but probably not, especially because LSU got involved really late) are eliminated. This follows the conventional wisdom at this point, by which Pryor is down to Michigan and OSU, with maybe PSU sneaking in close.
From this list of three, Columbus is certainly not a college town ("college town" != "town with a college," and even still Columbus is a big city). State College is a very nice college town, though it is in the middle of nowhere. Ann Arbor is slightly less of a college town, but it is accessible to the outside world as well (and is only 20 minutes from DTW).
Taking into account only the factor stated in the article, it seems like Michigan and PSU are the best destinations, though of course, it is expected to be a UM/OSU decision.
