Football

The Bitch
Marshall has a very proud football tradition. On November, 14 1970 the entire team and coaching staff was killed in a plane crash returning from a game at East Carolina. The team was pretty shitty for the next two decades but was reborn a winner in the 1990's. In 1997 the team moved from Division I-AA to D-1 and entered the Mid-American Conference. Their stadium, Joan C. Edwards Stadium, opened in 1991 and has been home to many I-AA National Championship and MAC Championship games. It is the only Division 1 stadium in the United States named after a woman. Currently the Herd play in the East Division of Conference USA.

Rivals

"Despite Marshall fans desperately wanting to be rivals with WVU, they have yet to actually beat them so until that happens, they will just remain normal opponents." is a common response among WVU fans when the mention of being a rival of Marshall comes up. They always seem to forget that Marshall beat their top 10 ranked basketball team the last two years and will probably stomp the shit out of them again this year.

We are the sons of Marshall, Sons of the great John Marshall!
