Wvu doesn't want to play Marshall cause its a waste of time...seriously what is the average difference in scores... Prob 35-40 points! Wvu can schedule a better opponent and not have to play cream puff Marshall now.

The can thing is true and its bullsheet. I didn't know it was 6 cents though, I figure 1-2. If the state is going to do that for one, they should do so for both.

WVU would rather schedule anyone that doesn't have a bunch whiner fans like Marsha. Crybabys, to scared to go to Morgantown, had to return tickets. Talk about an inferiority complex Marsha, you got one!!

I was at the WVU game and there was no Marshall fans there. Why would marshall want to play they do not support their team. I have season tickets and liberty brought more fans than Marshall, I really am sick of them crying about everything. It really turns people off of ever being a Marshall fan. Also the fat guy who rides the motorcycle with the dead cow on it .... That's stupid! The thunderclap ..... That's stupid! I was embarrassed to be there!

Go get you butts handed to you by Western Carolina Saturday, cause WV is done with you. You people need to support your team and quit your crying like a bunch of cry babies. How many time have we beat you in the last 40 years? Every time we've played you! You guys need to get over it now that we're moving on to bigger and better things. You guys can learn allot from our fans just by the showing of our fan base, always there and showing our guys that we care. My Hubby and I travel to almost every game, be it the Orange Bowl, Ho Ho! What a game! The Fiesta Bowl and most games in between. Why? Because we love our Mountaineers...Go Mountaineers!!!

Yeah we already play 1 cupcake team. We don't need Marshall to fill a spot were we could play a decent or good football team. And hell if Marshall was any good at sports I wouldn't have a problem with them splitting the soda tax but they suck at everything. Marshall couldn't even beat wvu when they had moss and Pennington!!!

I wish I had an answer for you, I do know that back in the mid to late 70s the total student population was in the upper teens to about twenty thousand. Yes we are old fogies. BTW! My cousin graduated there, don't remember the year but was a classmate of the late Don Knots, this was long before my Husband graduated.

Irony of you saying people are "crying". Your whole post was a big boohoo from start to finish.

Learn a lot from the fanbase that is considered the worst in the nation. Does your hubby punch pregnant women too?

Marshall has kicked WVU's ass plenty of times in all sports but football. You geniuses act like Marshall doesn't win anything. Hell WVU refuses to play Marshall in baseball. Refuses to play basketball in Huntington because they've never win a game there. Just recently started playing volleyball again which they've promptly started losing. The list goes on and on and on. Yep WVU has won 12 football games in like 90 years. Congrats. What was WVU's losing steak to Penn State like 30 years straight?

Oh & Moss & Pennington in 1997. That was a team 1 year removed from 1-AA that didn't even have the full scholarship of a 1-A team at that time and it still took everything for WVU to win. A favorite cheeseball WVU line is that a 10-3 1997 team was Marshall's "best ever" yet 2 years later it was 13-0 and 10th in the nation. Anything for their Marshall obsessed argument.

You'd think if you were past Marshall you stop talking about Marshall everywhere. Topix, HerdNation.com , newspaper comments, ESPN gamecast Sec 140 comments, etc etc... Everywhere there is a Marshall conversation there is sure to be some Marshall obsessed WVU douche who feels the need to speak their mind and them claim that Marshall fans have issues. Classic!

Sorry I got side tracked!% wise is minimal, saying that because my husband and the majority of his family graduated WVU from out of State. My Alma Mata is Old Dominion University, our athletic Dept isn't that great, having a tough time getting our football team up to where we want them to be. At the present we're in the CAA and will be moving to conference USA in 2013, our Ladies Basketball at one time was a great team, but still not too bad, our athletic department needs some fine tuning, but you know what they say "Rome wasn't built in a Day". Don't know where you reside, but this tidewater area is in dire need of Pro Sports Complex, although we do have an AHL the Norfolk Admirals, who won the AHL Championship this year, which was a shot in the arm for this area. Anyway, so much for ranting. My hubby says I talk to much about nothing and that I don't know what I'm talking about any way, Oh well I suppose he is right, but I do love my Mountaineers!
