The only burn things to get rid of the smell.

I hope I never find myself in Morgantown

I have to drive by WVU on my way to Ohio State every semester, how do you think I feel?

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

I literally drive through nothingness until I hit Charleston, which is a miserable capital. I-77 is such a bore.

West Virginia students and their friends regularly start bonfires to celebrate everything from a major sports victory to the end of a semester. WVU beat Baylor 70-63 on Saturday in its Big 12 debut.

Where I come from "starting a bonfire" didn't involve, furniture, the street, or damaging property.

You need to party in WV.

You don't need to drink to have fun, but you have to drink or else you're expelled down there. Ugh. I can't stand hearing my friends there talk about how great it is. I'll be the one laughing ten years down the road when I'm making considerably more money than they are.

Agreed. The only thing that looked like any amount of fun was that slide, and even then you'll probably contract MRSA from going down that thing. That just looked like a white-trash fest to me.

White trash that have no idea what to do with their lives...

The University should consider showing this video to prospective students who come in for a campus tour.  It could help a lot of kids, and parents, decide if they're really up to the standard of excellence that is required to attend such a fine institution of higher learning.

I was there for the game in '98. We smoked those fools. Still have the local paper that evaluated the positional matchups and gave WVU the edge in like all but one category.

Was just reading about that game to refresh the memory. 

We outgained them by about 250 yards, shut down Zereoue (20/77), Boston blew up and Germaine crushed Bulger's stats. 

Crazy atmosphere. Definitely borderline unsafe. Saw a couple couches set ablaze, a bottle of Jack lobbed onto the field from the upper deck and gangs of WVU fans running up and screaming at globs of very old Buckeye fans about Katzenmoyer's GPA. 

That place is a dump.

Re: your last point about very old Buckeye fans. there's no way I'm traveling to opposing stadiums in places as unstable as Morgantown, or any other unfriendly confines after I retire. it's just not worth it, is it? I'm in my twenties and I already can't be bothered with so many things that merely inconvenience me. I can't imagine how I'll feel if/when I'm in my 60s and 70s and drunk assholes are in my face. at that point I'll keep a cane for swatting purposes, I guess. /rant

The three cars destroyed were worth 35K? Dang, there must have been a big bag of weed in one of them.

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.

Was thinking the same thing. Like maybe a bale of weed. lol

How do they have anything left to light fires with? It would make sense for them to ban all flammable materials for that entire town.
