So last night West Virginia got a nice win over Pittsburgh in the hardwood version of the Backyard Brawl. Winners of six of their last seven, the Mountaineers are well positioned for Monday's showdown with Villanova. But their fans are still pretty crappy people, raised by equally crappy and unsightly parents.
As members of the student section heaved bottles, loose change and other forms of debris onto the court, Pitt assistant coach Tom Herrion was hit in the face, much to the chagrin of Coach Huggins...
This comes on the heels of some high-clarity profanity chants during the Ohio State game a few weekends ago, leaving Da'Sean Butler to tell the Charleston Gazette: "It shows people outside our state that we don't have class. That's not what we're about as a team or a state. It gives us a bad name."
Now I've driven through West Virginia a few times, and I always made a point to empty my bladder and get some food before crossing the state line. It's an atrocious place, where the best thing to do is leave and never come back.
