It's the 1980s all over again

Saturday's WVU vs. MU game reminded me of being a Marshall fan in the 80s. It was some really dark times for a small program that was barely saved after a plane crash that could have crushed the program forever. It had been rebuilding for twenty years and had never really gotten anywhere.

The 90s was a wonderful time for Marshall football. A new stadium had been built, and fans left the small confines of Fairfield Stadium for what felt like the big time. I think it would have been wonderful to play WVU back then, and in fact Marshall did in a very good game in 1997.

In good news, the Associated Press only one couch was reported burned in Morgantown on Saturday. (Warning. This link might rot).

Only one couch? I'm disappointed. *g*

Funny Prindle Field story, at least to me. Got so drunk at half-time of a MU game that I passed out. Woke up (became coherent, I should say) about 2am in Ward's Donut shop, eating chili with some guy I didn't know.

That isn't so funny now that I think if it. It's sorta sad...

Yeah. That sound like my memories of Marshall games. I mostly only made it to Prindle field. I really miss that place.
