does playing west virginia hurt the image of our program?
« on: October 15, 2012, 11:44:08 AM »
anybody want to weigh in on this? i know my answer and it is yes. everyone here knows that i never wanted these toothless mouth breathing hillbillies in the conference to begin with and now we have to play them this weekend.

would it be better to just forfeit? i mean yeah it would give us a loss and take us out of the national championship picture, but it might be the best call in the long run. i don't want our rep tarnished. we've spent far too many years building it up to be in line with the notre dame and alabamas of the world to be playing this game. just my opinion though i guess.

Guys, could we send the Cats' junior varsity gridiron squad over the Morgantown? At least our first stringers wouldn't pick up the awful smell of that craphole.

I say let's give them a break.  They never played anyone as elite as us, them coming from such a lowly conference... Big East or is it the big least.  :lol:

The safety of our players comes in question, do we really want the fumes from the couches on fire?

Yes it does.  Any time you send a team the caliber of ours into a crap hole like Morgantown it hurts our image.  I know for a fact our team is going to be disgusted to even be there.  Do they even have an airport for our team or do we have to get Mountain Men to guide us to that cesspool?

You're thinking too short term, Rick Daris. We need to get them out of the conference because until we do, we're going to face this dilemma every year.

i agree that they are the same caliber of oponent but there is no comparing the two schools after that.

iowa state is that nerdy kid with glasses that is good at school and loves sports but is just physically overmatched come game time while west virginia is a disgusting drug addicted hillbilly with one tooth cashing his wellfare check to buy menthols and energy drinks and then tries to play a pick up game while passing by a park on the way back to his trailer to then only play a couple of plays before hitting the crack pipe and trying to start a fight. they're gross and i'd rather not be seen hanging out with them. i mean, what are schools like florida going to think?

true enough but I am afraid these buffons will not take the hint that we do not want them around.

We can't play in Ames and then Morgantown in back to back weeks.  I can plug my nose, close my eyes, and get behind one.  Two though?  You have to be kidding me!

My cousin's frined got a job offer to run a company in WV.  He was there for like 3 months and left as quickly as possible.  He said it was legal to beat your wife there as long as they determine her life was never in danger.  Thats just unacceptable.

Geno Cook died last week guys.  God bless their hearts for not shutting down the stadium even though they probably should.

The problem is, they burn couches win or lose.

Everyone already knows about the burnt couches after the Texas game. Now we go in there and piss pound them, they burn some couches, people are going to think we had something to do with it. Guilt by association, I don't like it.

I'm not fully committed, but I may be alright with playing them so long as all games are in Manhattan.  No ticket allotment for them either.

You know they'll end up putting us up in a Super 8 or something.  Not that they're trying to be dicks, but because its the best they got.

I think it's scar tissue from a childhood incident involving a couch, some fire, and a broom.

I don't think forfeiting this one is a bad idea at all. We'd be looking at a Fiesta Bowl matchup with our sister school Notre Dame. I have it on good authority that bowl planners are already salivating all over this possibilty. The swagger and prestige levels for this one are off the charts.

Seems like a bad idea.  Some of them (more like all of them) might try to stay (of course) and suckle from the MHK dream factory teat.  You'll never get rid of them.

Also, I read online that there are no hate crimes there.  Like, if they see a gay guy, they can just beat him up or whatever.  Terrible.

If someone turns the channel to the game they could get the impression that we're another Big East team like Pitt or Western Michigan or something.  Then they'd see West Virginia's funky flat gray helmets and Under Armour uni's and think we're some gimmicky arena league and change the channel.

I'm kinda worried this might happen.

West Virginia has the lowest median household income in the US.  My God someone needs to help them.  Maybe we can start a charity that sends them new couches made of non-incendiary materials or something. 

Do you know how many beggars will be approaching LHCBS for money on his walk into the stadium?  So sad. 

Is that Manhattan?  My God, it's beautiful!
