Well 3 major things happened that changed the atmosphere...
1. Virginia Tech is no longer on our schedule...I still love going to a Mountaineer game on Saturday in Mo-Town but trust me the atomsphere was at its finest when the Hokies were in town. I guess I just miss the old Big East, especially that Virginia Tech rivalry, that was our best rivalry hands down!
2. They don't sell beer there anymore, which I'm pretty sure they don't sell beer at ANY college football game anymore.
3. Coach Good Golly Gee Barney Fiffe Stewart wants us to clean up our image and be respectable "lads." Granted that is great for the real world but at Mountaineer Field I'm one of those fans that takes great pride in being an sob to the opposing team (especially a rival)! It adds to the luster and lore of Mountaineer Field being a hostile environment where people hate coming to, except WVU fans of course!
