Marshall needs to really step it up a notch next season.
I've heard some good news about the new governor trying to get MU/WVU to play in the near future. Would be a great thing for the state to be able to look forward to that game at the end of every season, similar to what some of the other great rivalries across the country do. The state should embrace that rivalry to the benefit of all in the Mountain State. Would do more good than harm.
I'd love to see a WVU-MU football game annually, but I wish those games could have been played on a home and home basis, between 1998 and 2002, years when Marshall for the most part had the better team. In 2004, WVU would've probably crushed Marshall. Either the talent on the 2004 Herd was overrated, or the team simply lacked heart.
