    Can't make it this year, but Morgantown is a place I want to go for a game. I've heard nothing but great things

    It was a rough day for our team yesterday but enjoyed the great showing of your fan base at our tailgate. Iowa’s State truly has one of the best traveling fan bases in the Big12. Was great to see some of the fans that visited us 2 years ago. Wishing you much success the rest of the year and hope to see you back in 2021!

    I've never gotten the impression that his players didn't like or respect him.

    They know what they're getting when they sign up for going there.

    Thank you for the invite! We had a great time. The hospitality you and other Mountaineers showed us was over-the-top and has made our group take a look at how we can improve our tailgate.

    I remember this OP from years past. Because of his posts, I intend to take the trip to Morgantown with the wife in 2021. Sounds like a great time with good folks.

    It really is. The OP is great and Morgantown should be a bucket list B12 travel town for ISU fans.

    It’s a cool experience. We got about 20 feet from our car before WVU fans started offering us drinks.

    Good people. No **** talking. There was one person that was like “they’re not with us” and a couple of others just immediately shot them down.

    Ya overall very friendly experience. Reminds me of Ames with mountains. We only hit OP's tailgate party just before entering because we were too busy getting free drinks from people on our way into the stadium.

    PS. You can walk around freely with beer.

    Roughly the second year they were in the league I chatted up about five 60ish year old guys at the hotel breakfast in KC for the bball tourney.
    I asked if they miss the Big East. They said they miss some of the geographic rivalries but the bball tournament @MSG cost a fortune and there is no gathering spot in the city. They said basically the B12 threw them a life preserver and they could be UConn (now back to the BE) and left on an island.

    The peach moonshine was awesome!

    Here are a few pictures. (Yes, I know one picture uploaded sideways. Deal with it)

    Wish the B12 would have gave WV a somewhat close partner like Louisville instead of adding TCU. But I digress.

    We had a great time at your tailgate, we left the stadium saying "everyone is so nice, and offering food and drink to complete strangers."
    Thanks again, and hopefully if you make it to Ames next year, we can return the favor.

    Yeah, I think we might actually be their closest?

    I mentioned that fact to one of the WV fans during tailgating and his reply, we should be in the ACC, and I said "for some reason they do not want you." He replied "its their academics, they are horrible, and Virginia and N. Carolina are against them." I then reminded them about the money the Big 12 pays and he thought that the trade off in distance was well worth it for the money the conference is providing WV.

    Louisville's slimy coaches and associated, potential NCAA sanctions at the time probably got in the way of their candidacy to the Big 12.
