Who in their right mind would consider keeping this series going?  What are these two schools getting out of it?  WVU receives an easy victory while Marshall comes away with humiliating loss. 


Both of these schools need to give up on this "rivalry".  And the governor also needs to settle this worthless series now.  Marshall has never won against the Mountaineers, and really doesn't stand a chance. 


WVU could be playing a more respectable team then wasting their time with Marshall, while Marshall could be playing in a game that better fits them.  Most fans of West Virginia don't even see this as a rivalry, because it's never a good match-up.  Only Marshall fans see this game as a rivalry because they have never been able to compete with the guys upstate.


Does it not make sense to let these two schools play someone else to it bring in more money?  Two games in the state brings in more revenue then one lousy game between instate "rivals".  Take a loot at it Mr. Manchin, this is one thing you have failed at!
