Morgantown, West Virginia – Despite West Virginia holding a 12-0 football record all-time over the Marshall Thundering Herd, Marshall still considers itself a rival of the Mountaineers.
In a tasteless play on universities requiring proof of vaccination to attend games, Barstool Marshall said the following on attendance requirements at WVU:
”West Virginia will require all fans to provide proof of a(n) 3rd grading reading level upon entry to football games this upcoming season.”
Ironically, Barstool made a grammatical error in its post, using “an” instead of “a.”
BREAKING🚨@WVUSports will require all fans to provide proof of an 3rd grade reading level upon entry to football games this upcoming season.
Attendance rates are expected to drop significantly.

This is just another highly inappropriate Barstool Sports messages that have been posted on social media in recent years.
Marshall’s academic ranking is currently #284 in the nation and West Virginia University’s is #241 according to U.S News.
