If you bleed Blue and Gold, pack the house tonight. If you love and appreciate Bob Huggins, show him by getting to the game tonight. If you respect the effort that our young basketball players have shown, particularly at the end of the season, get your a-s-s down to the Coliseum tonight! If you live within a 50 mile radius of Morgantown and you’re reading this, you have absolutely no reason to not attend tonight’s game against Iowa State. I don’t want to hear about the parking or the weather or the cold or the fact that the game doesn’t matter, or any other excuse that you make for not attending. I don’t want to hear it! I’m flying in from Florida and braving the cold just for the game tonight. I’ll have to trade in my flip-flops and swimtrunks in for boots and a parka.
Full disclosure, I’m also coming in for Yann’s Hot Dogs in Fairmont. And Colasessano’s pizza. And maybe Muriale’s. I might just sample all of Fairmont’s delectable cuisine, okay? But the game, that’s the real reason I’m coming back home today.
Since the dismissal of Esa Ahmad and Wesley Harris, this team has been entertaining to watch. They play as a team, they never give up and really, this is the future of WVU basketball. Just as this team hasn’t quit on us this year, we can’t quit on them! This team deserves a packed house. Bob Huggins deserves a packed house. “Hilton Magic?” Tonight, there will be some “Coliseum Mountaineer Magic” as we upset Iowa State (20-9, 9-7)! Win or lose, this is the last time this year to show them how much we love and appreciate them. Get out and pack the Coliseum tonight! No excuses.
