Commentary: Many WVU fans treat Marshall like America treats West Virginia

This week, WVU football coach Rich Rodriguez said his team’s series with Marshall isn’t a rivalry – at least not yet.

Coach Rodriguez: “We don’t even play them – I’ve played them once. I think Coach Nehlen  was here 20 years and played them once. So you can’t put a whole lot into that so-called rivalry when you’ve only played them twice.”

But our News Director, Greg Collard, says this rivalry existed long before Governor Manchin helped broker a seven-game series between the schools. He explains why in this commentary – and yes, he is a Marshall alumnus.

    How exactly is it that much easier to get into Marshall?

  2. Fred B. Says:

    Hate to break it to you, but MooU will have to wait a lot longer than one year before they beat WVU. MooU’s days are over. They will never catch WVU.

    I hate to break it to you, but it will be a longer than one year before MooU makes a game of it, less emerge victorious.
