It would be a great rivalry with UK, but I wouldn't want to travel there for a game because of how I would be treated.
The SEC experience isn't really like that at all from my experiences.
That's basically how I feel, and thats why I've said culturally WVU is going to have to compromise coming into any new conference. Oliver Luck knows that and I think is trying to work through it.
Fan treatment has improved though from the Pitt game a couple years ago. I was reading on Marshall's message board about fan treatment for those who went to the game this year and outside of a few chants (What's the word? blank the Herd!), the fans were pretty well behaved. They said compared to Ohio State, where fans spit on them, WVU was better.
The SEC Big East Invitational will be interesting this year because WVU is making the trip to Starkville to face the worst fans in the SEC (Mississippi State). I'd be interested to hear any stories from WVU fans who make that trip.
