Likely won't be able to get back to Purdue this year for a game which sucks. Maybe i'll come to WVU for a game..
You can see me marching trumpet in the band, and we have some good teams coming to WVU this year: Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma (gonna be crazy that game). A pretty good step up from having UConn, South Florida, and Louisville, though I'm gonna miss the Backyard Brawl.

The game against James Madison at FedEx Field should be cool.

Yea 6-7 hours. Just depends on what construction you run into in Pennsylvania.

The Baylor game is Homecoming as well as the first Big 12 conference game, so that'll be a pretty good atmosphere for the game. I could always try the student section ticket lottery, which was how I got tickets to the LSU game from my brother. Though you'd have to try and vaguely look like my college ID which means you'd have to be tan and have a mustache (it was taken while I had my graduation/Devils pride Henrique-stache).

I would definitely be down to go to the OK game. And I could just have on shades and wear my hat low or something I'd owe you huge if you could help out there..

This seems like the best option as I have no desire to go watch Rutgers play kent st.

I did something along those lines for both times I used my brother's ID to get in. Just grew out my beard and wore a hat. They gotta get thousands of rowdy, likely drunk, students through all of like, 5 gates, so the "screening process" boils down to the name on the ticket matching the name on the ID and a cursory glance at your face as a formality.

But the student section lottery tickets are only given out a week before the game, and your odds are weighed based on seniority, standing with the university, club activities, etc. Basically, it's not a total given to get a ticket, though they will sometimes sell more than the student section capacity for big games. But that's an added perk of being in the band, free admission to the games. All it costs is my my time, energy, memory, lungs, and uniform rental fee.

Rutgers v. Kent State or WVU v. Baylor... um... I guess with the Rutgers game you could still be close enough for a Devils game lol?

Probably that close to the game the only hotels with open rooms will be a decent drive outside of Morgantown, granted both teams live up to their expectations.

Gah, all this talk is getting me all more excited for football. I want me some Devils goals and 'Eers touchdowns.

With all the news of Mathieu getting booted off the LSU team today, it's nice to see a good story from college football.

Like a 4th year walk-on getting a full scholarship from Vanderbilt.

Mathieu is an idiot, just follow him on twitter. Incompetent fool who's damn good at football.

That's a big blow to the LSU D.

Bump for 10 days until the start of the college football season. 12 days until the Mountaineers kickoff their season against the Thundering Turd.

Let's see Randy Edsall is still our coach and we are now down to two true freshman QB's. I'm just going to right off this season as a 0 or 1 win season for Maryland

Ugh

A nice cupcake to start the season.
Has Marshall ever beat WVU?
I know they came close a few seasons ago.

I'll be happy if Purdue hits 7 wins this year. Where's another Drew Brees when you need him?

Nope. Not once ever. And yet Marshall fans like to talk **** about WVU for some reason. And their coach is as dumb as a butt.

That 2010 game went from utter dread to hilarious joy at the expense of Marshall fans.

Going out onto the field at the stadium last Friday was awesome (took pictures on the Big XII logos).

The first half is the band practicing part of halftime, then the last half is a run through of our pregame. And yes, we do run out to make a happy face and end making a big "XII" at the end.

Just watched the college football countdown on ESPN. So pumped for Thursday!

My NC pick is USC vs FSU

USC-Oregon is going to be an incredible game this year..
