Bob Huggins Lays Down the “Law”
Whether it’s basketball or football, it’s always a good time when Pitt and West Virginia get together. There’s a genuine affection between the two fanbases, one that extends beyond mere physical activity. Um, yeah. About that. I mean, the rivalry is called the “Backyard Brawl” for goodness’ sake. To say there’s no love lost would be understating things. The latest edition of the Backyard Brawl saw the Panthers traveling to West Virginia, and if you’re a fan of unruly student fans throwing things at opposing coaching staffs, this game was for you.

Needless to say, they were about as effective as trying to plug a dike with your finger. Fast forward to later in the game:
See? As effective as an umbrella against a nuclear missle. You stay classy, West Virginia fans. The world would be a much a different place if you ever changed.
