   Posted: 8/4/2022 11:52:01 AM 
When this series was announced, someone on the college football said 'Congratulations, Ohio, for selling out your 2025 season ticket packages". We have a few years to figure out how to prevent 1) Peden Stadium becoming a Morgantown West three Labor Day weekends from now but more importantly 2) WVU fans trying to resell our season tickets back to us on the secondary market.

Unless there's a more creative way, as an out of town fan, I may just do my little part to buy some season tickets in 2024, use at least one game's worth, and sell the rest at face value so I can get on the early privilege to buy for 2025, use the WVU game tix for myself, then treat the others as I did the previous season.

The AD has smarter people than me. What should they do?

Good excuse to expand Peden. Curved deck with new ground floor concessions along the student side. Open press tower for team events and game day rental.

There is always a possibility this game is never played or gets bumped out a few years.
I hope not but , those things have a way of happening to us.
Nice that you have lots of time on your hands this summer, to get a head start on all of this.

^^^ This hasn’t happened to us since Kirby took the bus (or was it a limo) out of town.

Cancel the game and ask for a basketball home game instead.

Their other two OOC games in 2025 are at home, vs Mr. Morris on 8/30 and Pitt on 9/13, so we're probably safe unless they get an offer they can't refuse. The Mr. Morris game is more likely to go than ours is, since our game is more likely to mean something in the playoff standings. Ours is a 2-for-1 one series; we're in Morgantown in '27 and '29.


We will get by.
We will get by.
We will get by.
We will survive.

If WVU wants to back out then we will see how good a negotiator Julie is.
WVU needs to pay Big time to back out.

It would be nice but with the current configuration of Peden only 5 years old with Sook, scoreboard and sound system its probably off the table to modify at the moment. Just my opinion but when you can sell out for FCS programs like Idaho and Norfolk St and now you are bringing in West Virginia and Iowa State you might want to look at a larger capacity. If you want 10,000 students at a football game you might want to have a better infrastructure for concessions.

“Idle time is the Devi’s workshop,” as my grandmother would have said.

In other words, not much concrete information to talk about like news from practices, new formations being tried, etc., so why not engage in idle speculation based on zero facts just to make you appear knowledgeable on a subject in which you are totally ignorant.

Doesn't Cincinnati still owe us a trip to Athens for football as well? I seem to remember that can getting kicked down the road a couple of years ago.

An apt analogy Ohio Cat Fan, sounds like our grandmothers were "singing from the same hymnal" so to speak. Hopefully this game, and others go according to plan. Conference realignment and NIL could put us all over the edge, if we thought about it too long. "Let today's troubles be enough for today, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself!"

Given the hate between WVU and Pitt, I wonder....would they play at Acrisure (but I will still call it Heinz Field) Stadium in Pittsburgh? That would be something-painting over Pitt endzones with the WV logo or vice versa.

Could see it being a game to draw alums from both schools who call Western Pa home.

I, too, can see this game being bought out.

I was at a Drum Corps competition in Allentown last weekend.

The guy sitting next to me had on a WVU Mining Engineering shirt.

We started talking.

I never knew that Pitt is their biggest rival.

He said Marshall is an "after thought".

The "Backyard Brawl" was always a huge game--2022 will be the first time the teams will play in a decade. WVU is really a greater Pittsburgh school. People also don't remember that Pitt-Penn State was played at Three Rivers Stadium the day after Thanksgiving and was a rivalry on par with Ohio State-Michigan and Okla-Nebraska for a while. The realignment of conferences really hurt some old rivalries in Western PA.

The 2007 version that kept WVU out of the National title still stings. Still one of the biggest "what-ifs" ripple effects in college football history.

Exactly . . . that's why when I was at Marshall we called the school in Morganhole, the University of Southern Pennsylvania (or USP, for short).
