Deja Vu

It was a third straight ugly win for WVU, and the game played out like nearly every Marshall game does.

WVU takes an early lead, and seems to be coasting to an easy win.  Marshall hits a few threes, and the crowd comes alive.  The game comes down to the last minute, and as the Little Train, Lionel Armstead, did in the past, Da’Sean Butler hits a game winning shot.

WVU fans go home, without even thinking about rushing the floor, dissapointed in the team’s performance, and never giving Marshall another thought until they start nipping at our heels before the football game. 

Marshall fans go home and talk about how they should have won their ‘super bowl’, and cling to the moral victory.  They think about the game everynight for the next 12 months, and talk trash to anyone who will listen.  But the joke is on them.  They’re fans of a bad team in a bad conference. 

And, as always at the Civic Center, the game finishes with arms in front of the camera, obstructing the view.  Can they not put the camera on a phone book or something?  Even a Marshall grad should be able to solve this problem.

  1. We need to stop playing this game. At the very least, we need to play them early in the season with the rest of the community colleges we play. This is the biggest game of the season, and we are at a point were this game doesnt even matter to our players.

  2. Since we played a pretty decent game of five on eight, I’m happy with the two point win.
    Note to refs: Just because two guys happen to be in close proximity to each other, doesn’t mean it has to be a foul.

  3. I have to agree with Jon D. That was one of the worst called games I have ever seen. If you were at the game, you missed footage of a very pissed off Bob Huggins having his picture taken with that “worlds stongest man” guy and the piece of shit trophy that makes the coal bowl trophy look good by comparrison. Huggs didn’t even come close to cracking a smile. Can’t blame him. I thought the refs called a pretty bad game both ways, though.

  4. They showed about 10 or 20 seconds of the “trophy” (if that’s what you call that thing) presentation before leaving the air for good, and everything you just stated is absolutely accurate, Huggs looked like he wanted nothing more than to get in the locker room and chew some asses out.

  5. The ref job was horrible. Over 50 fouls with many being very ticky-tack, but several obvious walks went uncalled both ways, for us and Marshall.
