Louisville elects not to bring cheer and dance teams to Morgantown

Word began to circulate yesterday afternoon that Louisville had elected not to bring its cheer team, dance team or mascot to Morgantown for this weekend's game against West Virginia because of safety concerns. There have also been rumors that this will be the only road game of the season where the majority of the administrators from the athletic office will not be making the trip.

It appears that at least the first part of that is true.

West Virginia fans immediately cried foul once that tweet began to circulate, claiming that this was nothing more than Louisville trying to make West Virginia look bad after it was beaten out by the 'Eers for a Big 12 bid. Members of the cheer and dance team responded on Twitter by saying that the last time they made the trip to Morgantown they had bottles thrown at them and actually left the field before the start of the fourth quarter.

Mountaineer fans remained respectful during the debate, of course.

We can laugh all we want, but from a medical standpoint, he's accurate.

As far as the Internet is concerned, yesterday was as contentious a start to a game week as I've ever seen. It's remarkable how incredibly nasty West Virginia fans are when arguing that their fan base is not incredibly nasty. I'm not sure I'm ready for what the rest of the week holds, but I'm not sure I've wanted a win over the Mountaineers this badly since '06.

If you are making the trip to Morgantown, "The Sheriff" over at CardsandCats.com has a detailed breakdown of what you can expect.
