"We played good with them for a half!"
I always heard WVU didn't believe in moral victories. The LSU game proved otherwise. WVU got blown out in Morgantown yet they ran up 533 total yards on the "best defense in the nation".
If that isn't the definition of a moral victory, I don't know what is.
I'll always say the Friend of Joe Bowl was played five years too late. I think it would be best for both teams to do away with the series and see what happens if the two ever meet in a bowl game and Marshall comes out with the win. That's how Kentucky and Louisville started playing in basketball on a yearly basis.
