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.
I know what you saying about the LSU game, but I was one of the fans that said we lost, plain and simple. There are NO good losses, I don't care if you are the 0-10 team playing the #1 team in the nation, there is NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING good about a loss. So in reality I could care less that WVU put up 500 and some odd yards against LSU because the end result was a Loss. Yes I have ZERO respect for MooU football, their fans gave me this snobbish attitude, I truly hate their program.
The FOJB was not 5 years too late, WVU would have dominated that game no matter the decade. The level of athletes from both institutions were and always will be on different levels. Its kind of like putting a Class A high school JV team against a Class AAA powerhouse, the outcomes will be predictable.
