Some teams refuse to play in Huntington for fear of not having the home field advantage. Not Appalachian State! I respect them for that.
Yes, I'm sure a National Television audience on CBS will see two fine teams that respect each other giving their all to win! Sportsmanship and fair play, something we rarely see from schools their their particular team moniker!

No one is hiding from you Perry Mason. The fact is that none of us are in the WVU athletic department and we have no say in who they schedule or where those games are played..........but I'm certain that fear of Marshall is NOT one of the reasons that the series was dropped.

See how easy that was, Tonycried2? If you're going to troll effectively, then you need to call other posters out. Take notes.

Hahahahahahahaha, I consider my thread to be simply stating facts as opposed to trolling! But I do wish the boys would develop some new disingenuous excuses as to why we don't play!

I will turn the tables just a bit and challenge you to offer some sound reasoning as to why we should play........something other than both schools are in the same state, it would be good for the state........you know, something besides the same old drivel that we always hear from the Herdiot camp.

Other than as a West Virginia taxpayer, I couldn't care less about Marshall and WVU's ever playing again. Having said this, wouldn't it have made more sense for the two instate teams to have played each other than each having played a horrendous directional Kentucky team?

yes it actually would have......but EKU's coaches and athletic director don't make idle threats and they don;t shoot off their mouths without the balls to back it up

You hit the nail on the head my friend....we're the only two FBS schools in the state , seems logical we'd meet! Why does CU play CSU?

As a WVU taxpayer if there was a referendum on the issue of should WVU-MU play home and home in revenue sports? How would you vote? I think 99% of all MU people would vote yes, 99% of WVU folks no...but the vast majority of citizens that attended neither school and root for them both or neither, how would they vote?

I've said it for a long time, and I speak the truth. There's only a single reason why WVU fans don't want to play the Herd, and that's simply due to fear of losing the game. Anything else you see written is pure disingenuous hogwash.

I've read your takes over the years, so I know you don't believe in their reasoning. Make no mistake. The games aren't played out of fear of taking an 'L'.

I think your assertion is correct...our arrogant Cousins are quite content to relish in their self appointed state of superiority. It becomes much more problematic when something objective such as a scoreboard comes into play!

I would vote for a 3 or 4 for 1......that's all the herd deserves at this point.......Governor Joe did you all a favor and then your idiot AD and coaches let their alligator mouths overload their hummingbird asses and now you got what you got......nothing

I wish I was able to purchase wvu for what it's worth and sell it for what you guys believe it to be worth! I'd make a pretty penny!

Basketball should be played every year in Charleston (period).

Make it a two day event and have WVU vs Vatech and Marshall vs Ohio on Saturday, then Vatech vs Ohio and WVU vs Marshall on Sunday. That could get a possible national TV game or two. Both of the Marshall games would be a pretty good non conference game for the C-USA TV deal.

Switch it up every year with Miami of Ohio/Pitt, ECU/UVA, etc.

I agree basketball is easy and is only currently dormant due to Huggy getting his feelings hurt, we never appreciated what a sensitive guy he is and maybe that's on us! Football admittedly is more problematic.

More Like the real Mountaineers don't give a shit about the Herd. Sorry your little feelings are hurt. Grow up and quit being a little bitch. Find another way to make dollar off somebody else.

I already know their response tOSU...MU coaches and administration didn't show the proper respect for a school that's never won ANYTHING of note!
Just to make clear my position regarding Marshall University and their sports teams. You do not know my feelings re: Marshall University I am a native WVian and follow both Marshall and WVU. I was friends with and one year ahead of Jack Mahone at CHS. You may have heard of him as he was one very good Marshall Running back in the 1960's. I followed his career as well a some others i.e Cebe Price, Paul Underwood, Hal Greer. I do not follow or participate in the WVU vs Marshall campaign. I am an avid WVU fan first but want to Marshall succeed also. As for tosu, I would like to buy him for what he is worth and sell him what he thinks he is worth.
