Friends of Coal Bowl Preview

On the eve of the WVU/Marshall game. Few thoughts come to mind,

It looks like this game is going to take a bit of a hiatus. Everyone I talk to seems to want to see this game go away. But according to this article thats not the case http://www.dailymail.com/Sports/WVUSports/201208300005?page=1&build=cache

I have mixed feelings on this subject.

One part says keep this game. There the only two division 1 NCAA schools in this state and should play.

BUT there's a few factors I say don't keep this game.

One being everyone LOVES the Pitt/WVU game. Or for those hardcores it's the Backyard Brawl. Now that there in seperate conferences that game is impossible to be played every year unless a game is dashed off the schedule. Now that being said would I rather see a WVU/Marshall or a WVU/JMU game? I'd take the Friends Of Coal Bowl.

Two and the point that is glaring to me is Marshall sent back 2,100 tickets. Now Marshall was the team that wanted this game for a long time. Returning that amount of tickets to me is more telling than the Daily Mail poll. And I understand you had to be a Big Green member (donor for those that did'nt know). But that still tells me there has been lost interest. 

So in short I see the pros and cons of this game. What do i think will happen tom?

Well I see this game being one of those Marshall stays nip and tuck going into the fourth quarter. But the Mountaineers in the end pull ahead end up winning by 2 MAYBE 3 tds. I dont think WVU will hit that 25 1/2 point line that I saw on ESPN this afternonn. But enjoy this game because it will probally be the last time in a while that we will see this game.

Remember kickoff is at noon and you can catch the game here on Sports Radio 1340 am as well on THE GREATEST HITS OF ALL TIME 95.9FM STARTING AT 10AM with the Mountaineer Countdown.
