In 2002, I Hit Ronald Blackshear In The Head…

…with a nerf basketball that I launched onto the court after a devastating OT loss.

The year before, I obtained his cell-phone number and posted it on a sign at the game. And we called it about a thousand times.

That same year, J.R. VanHoose, during pre-game warmups, walked over to me in the front row of the student section, grabbed my sign and tore it up. Right in front of me. What did that sign read? Nothing too bad, just poking fun at a recent DUI arrest.

FG: 48%
FT: 86%
BAC: .12

During the infamous “Fire Drill Game,” I literally had to restrain my shit-faced friend in the Civic Center tunnel from punching Greg White in the face.

Needless to say, I’ve had some interesting moments during the Capital Classic. But one fact remains: I hate Marshall, and very little gives me more pleasure than watching yet another dejected Herd crowd leave the Civic Center each year.

Can’t wait….see you guys inside.

Marco Fell In The Mud

West Virginia Junior College felt it was time to beef up its mascot, Marco. In doing so the school paid over $9,000 for two new uniforms. To put it bluntly, they should get their money back, it looks like someone dropped the damn head in the mud.

Also, look at those fucking 1990’s windbreaker pants. What did they do, go Goodwill and let a blind guy pick them out? Good lord, can this school do anything right?

First, they break some poor kids leg and now they are breaking the spirits of a fanbase that eats to make themselves feel better (Huntington is not a healthy place). I can’t wait to see the other cheap ass outfit. I actually feel sorry for them, and I doubt Randy Moss would be happy.

Bring Your Green Helmets We’re Going Streaking

Boredom makes you do strange things. No, downloading porno is completely normal. I’m talking about watching a few minutes of Marshall v. Houston last night on ESPN2.

Before I vomitted in my mouth a little from ugly ass football I noticed something that made me throw my fucking shoe. Marshall had on green fucking helmets. Why is that a big deal? Because its normal helmet color is WHITE.

Someone Get This Man A Tissue

I kid you not, this was actually posted on the Marshall Rivals board.  Seriously, a man, presumably sobbing gently and standing on a ledge somewhere in Huntington, took the time to type this diatribe.  WVU’s success has affected him so much that he is losing the will to live.  That’s taking Marshall’s jealousy to a whole new level.

So, without further ado, I give you the saddest thing ever…

OK, That Was 100% Decent

Decent win Saturday.

Think it was great?  Good?  Awesome?  Fucking spectacular?  A lot of Mountaineer fans did.  I didn’t.  Decent is as far as I will go.

We went out and executed everything pretty well Saturday.  The running game rolled up our once customary 300+ yards.  The passing game took just enough pressure off the running game.  No mistakes in special teams.  And our defense shut down Marshall, to the tune of 158 yards.  Not too shabby.

But then again, it was Marshall — a team we were favored over by two touchdowns and would have been favored by four had the first month of the season not happened.  Then, as if that wasn’t enough, the Thundering Herd decided to take a cyanide pill everytime they got the ball in a crucial situation.  A much less talented team handed us the game on a silver platter — hooray!

We Are…..Irrelevant!!

Sure, WVU has lost a few games recently but is there any real chance we get beat by Marshall? There is no chance in hell that happens. The coaching staff will gel with the players and call a game that will be a thing of beauty. Do I have any facts, stats, or proof?  Nope, just a belief that we can only go up from this point forward.  Final score, WVU 38 – West Virginia Junior College 10.

At least this year we won’t complain about Marshall pulling down our strength of schedule. Thanks again Joe for another easy W.

Stargate 2008

Oh my

The title of this article does not reflect my love for science fiction movies that are eventually made into TV shows. No, no, and no. Rather, it is in reference to our recruiting haul so far this season. While we have not been scoring 5 star guys like Heastie and Boyd, the depth and potential we are collecting is unheard of for WVU at this point. We willland at least 4 more 4 or 5 star guys by signing day.

Marshall’s Season in Pictures

Actually, just one picture.

Unintentional Comedy Hour

Funny Man

All one really needs to do for a quick chuckle is simply look at Marshall beat writer Doug Smock’s picture. That picture is hung on the ceiling over my bed so the girls I trick into sleeping with me know that they could’ve done worse. However, after I give them my O face they realize Mr. Smock would’ve been the better choice.

Ol’Dougies looks can be mocked but I’m a nice guy so I will not do that anymore. Instead let’s take a look at his Monday column in the Charleston Gazette.

So let’s take a stab at an issue today – Marshall’s 2008 football schedule. Is it, as some would assert, too tough to handle?

Alright, after this he has write that Moo U actually has a chance to beat WVU, Wisconsin, and Cincinnati to give the alumni some glimmer of hope for the upcoming season.

Because We Can (…And It’s The Truth)

Marshall Hoping For New Commitment

HUNTINGTON — Marshall head coach Mark Snyder has already announced his recruiting class for 2008, but that doesn’t mean there are not any surprises left. Snyder, just 12-23 through three tumultuous seasons at Marshall, feels there is one marquee recruit left on the Herd’s radar.

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.

The Morning Shotgun/Throwdown (1/23/08)


Welcome By-Godders to the Wednesday edition of the Morning Shotgun/Throwdown. It is WVU v. Marshall day and had I not fallen asleep at 9 last night I would have something highly entertaining and somewhat funny for our loyal readers.

But no just the normal stuff but expect some Marshall trashing throughout the day.

Why Don’t We Just Burn The Money?

If you’re a Marshall fan — like I am — you’ve had your fingers crossed for an indoor practice facility built with taxpayer money for awhile now. Well, today might be your lucky day:

Plans for an indoor practice facility for Marshall’s athletic program have risen from dormancy.

Marshall University’s Board of Governors has included a $10 million building in its list of capital expenditures projects from 2008 to 2013. The move Tuesday does not signal imminent construction or even approval, but it does resurrect a stronger possibility.

Fantastic. We all know who supports Marshall athletics, right? It’s sure not the donors, if they have any outside of Joan C. Edwards. It’s the entire state of West Virginia and its taxpayers. And if I know taxpayers, the first thing on their list is a $10 million indoor practice facility for an 0-6 football team.

New roads? Nah. Improved public education? Maybe later. Indoor practice facility? Hooray!
