Marshall has been harmed intentionally. She has been,i.e. her program has been imo, breached upon by WVU intentionally. Both, by the way are located in Appalachia. No major university should be allowed such latitude,or lawlessness such as WVU has taken against her sister University, without a standard of repercussion from the NCAA. I say follow up on this. If you do not, no one will.

It is apparant that WVU is more concerned it will lose to the Mighty Thundering Herd than they are willing to admit. One famous coach once said; "If you're scared, get a dog." We have heard all the excuses from WVU that they do not play I-AA teams,they won,t play in a stadium seating compacity with that of the herd,they will not play a MAC school on the road. We are not I-AA,they still wouldnt play, they went to Cincinnati with a lower capacity of seating than that of the herd, they played at UCF while in the MAC. Strike three, you lose. That is exactly what will happen in September. "GET A DOG FAST"

If the governor didn't push for the game it never would of happened. Why play a team ranked 80 something in your home state when the recruiting base is so small in West Virginia? It does not make sense.

You better bring back Moss, Pennington and Pruitt to win. Oops We already beat them.

WVU doesn't need to get a dog. That was evident on September 2nd. But that's water under the bridge. Moving forward, what have you Marshall fans learned? Here's a little saying that may be of some help in the future. "Be careful what you wish for......you just might get it!" Enough said. Have a nice season!

Recruiting is just another example, in the littany of excuses Mountaineer fans use to justify not playing MU. I have heard them all.

The real reason is 'Eer fans do not want MU to be viewed on their level. Most would agree MU is not at WVU's level yet...but we are not far off.

MU v WVU resembles the rivalry between Clemson and USC...and its not just sports where the rivalry exists.

We would rock in the SEC too. Hopefully we can play Leak in the national championship game. We owe you for the 94 sugar bowl

Ahhh... I went to that game! I respect your desperate want for revenge!(I want to play Nebraska again for the 64-21 defeat they dealt us in '95... STILL!) I don't know that you would rock in the SEC though... Auburn, LSU and Florida would all make you feel like 1994 was yesterday.(Obviously I won't talk too much trash and include Georgia in that list.)

I too went to the game. Easily the worse hangover of my life.$2.00 Hurricanes sold out of cracks in the walls are a bad idea.

As far as the SEC goes, kick Vandy out and invite WVU in. Watch us Thursday then tell me how well we would do in the SEC.

You know, thats not a bad idea. You guys DO need into the SEC... though- everyone loves Vandy... they have more heart than any crappy team I've ever seen. They lose every game of the season and they only lose it by a field goal some how. You should replace Kentucky!

You are all wasting your time talking about WVU and the SEC, the BUCKS are in a different league now and will be for a long time. WVU does not want to play for a National Champiomship. Ask Major Harris.

Pleeeasse... OSU is good, but I'm not ready to put them in their own league. We'll see if you make it past Michigan... and if the gators run the table- You'll hate the state of Florida more than ever before.

WVU is weak, a one loss SEC team could junp over them to the NC game based on the BCS polls. Teams that do not upgrade their schedules, should not be rewarded but rather penalized instead LOL!!! WVU EEEEEEERRR'S
PLEEEEEEEZE hahahahaha LOL!!!
