Theres been some speculation on Herd-Nation that the reason he resigned was because of the WVU-Marshall football series that Joe Manchin is trying to get going.
Actually, many of us Herd Nation regulars were criticizing that speculation. It was brought up by several of our Mountie lurkers. It is absurd when you think about it; it's like saying Rich Rod would retire because WVU planned to restart a series with Penn state.
I grew up in Parkersburg and you know as well as I do how badly most people in the state want to see this game played--no matter what they might say to the contrary. As someone who is from a "House Divided" and used to cheer for both schools, I can't wait until we meet on the field again.
