Message To Mountaineer Nation


Over the last few weeks, we’ve all seen the worst of West Virginia University with students taking to the streets, causing damage, starting fires and some being expelled from school.

President Gordon Gee and the faculty have made an effort to punish those who committed these acts, and at the same time, show the very 2011-September-24-10-54-30best of West Virginia University.

With a national televised audience and ESPN College Gameday coming to Morgantown this weekend, the eyes of the country will be watching you.

They’re going to be expecting you to fail.

They’re expecting you to wear the shirts with profane language, starting fires and going wild in the streets.

Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato will be in Morgantown for a Gameday feature. While we have our opinions on the matter, keep in mind the cameras are always rolling. Express yourself, but show them who the best school in the state is, while being respectful at the same time.

This is your first test…. how will you respond?

Our message is that you respond with the best of West Virginia. Not only is West Virginia University in the spotlight, but for 3 1/2 hours, the entire State of West Virginia is as well.

So, be loud and proud. Lose your voice and give it all you’ve got this weekend. We already know who the flagship school is, but now is the time to show everyone else what West Virginia is really about.

We aren’t about burning couches and t-shirts… or a place where fans are afraid to attend. WE ARE a place built on PRIDE and hard work. We are a group of people who believe in a school, a coaching staff and a football team.

The movement this week with Tent City has been amazing and has already cast the University in a positive light. Even the ESPN College Gameday crew is hanging with the students and playing video games.

Mountaineer Nation, this is your first true test. The entire country is watching….

How will you respond?
