West Virginia Quarterback Nicco Marchiol has quickly emerged as a fan favorite of Mountaineer Nation’s. The Chandler, Arizona product will compete for the starting job heading into 2023, and many expect him to win the position.
While Marchiol is a Mountaineer through-and-through, this isn’t keeping him from wishing success for WVU’s Men’s Basketball opponents.
To be more specific, Jalen Bridges and the Baylor Bears.
Marchiol wished Bridges good luck on his Instagram earlier today. Here are the words the former four-star quarterback prospect had for the West Virginia transfer.
“Ball out tonight brodie.”
This isn’t something you see a lot in collegiate athletics. Wishing opponents luck is certainly out of the ordinary, but we can definitely assume these two have a great relationship off the field and court.
Other than Marchiol, it’s hard to imagine anyone in the state of West Virginia wishing Bridges luck tonight.
