If the Herd that played Southern Miss shows up they can make it a game. If the Herd that played Ohio shows up it will be ugly. As for the 'eers, I think they have a good shot at LSU.
WVRed I think you probably have a pretty good idea why a Herd fan who grew up in Parkersburg like I did would have less than friendly feelings towards WVU. The MU/WVU debate has certainly cooled because MU has been down. It is really only diehards of both schools who give it much thought right now. But much like the other rivalry I'm passionate about--Xavier/UC--it will heat back up once both teams are good.
