It is homecoming weekend in Morgantown, West Virginia. I remember the homecoming parades and big football games when I spent three years in Morgantown in the early 80’s. I remember the floats and the celebrations and the Pride of WV marching down the street. This year’s homecoming opponent is Syracuse and you can see the Countdown to the Kickoff.
An extra added to this year’s homecoming festivities were the former midnight madness to start off the NCAA basketball season. Mountaineer Madness Friday began at 9:30 pm last night and included all kinds of fun at the Coliseum. While not quite the thrill of a Midnight Madness, this allowed many more to come out and see the competitions the Mountaineers put on.
And yes, as an addition, homecoming this year came with an extra special surprise. Michigan loses to Toledo, its first ever loss to a MAC team.
