I know a lot of people were happy, yet unhappy, with the game being called yesterday. We U of M fans were left with a feeling of emptiness, as we got cheated out of the 4th quarter, but it was a great call by the AD's. The question for WVU and Marshall is .... at what point does Marshall just give in to defeat. They are down by 24 points with roughly 14 minutes left, and the game has been going on for 6 1/2 hours ... mostly a lightning delay. It was just announced on ESPN that one of the fans who refused to leave the stadium when it was evacuated, and the police have confirmed he was unresponsive after being struck by lightning.
I think it's ridiculous that these 2 AD's cannot come to an agreement after nearly 7 hours, when WMU and U of M were able to do so very quickly. The game is out of hand, and I think it's ridiculous they are going to keep this game going, especially since thay are saying there is at least 2 more hours of storms coming, and the fact that lightning directly struck the stadium and affected a fan.
