Perhaps not, but to me your comment below sure sounds an awful lot like saying "they were asking for it." It attempts to justify the "response" by WVU fans with some perceived action by Marshall. And for the record WVU puts up plenty of billboards in the Huntington area.
Have to admit, though, that Marshall's putting up billboards in Morgantown about how many "championships" they had won, using a really loose definition of that word, contributed to Marshall/WVU incidents. Marshall goaded for quite a while, acting like WVU was an inferior rival, and got the expected, if awful, response.
