The caption of the post read, “This week marks 50 years. Thinking of Herd Football.”
The photo used is of a historical marker at the site of the crash in Wayne County, West Virginia.
Even as heated of a rivalry that the Marshall-WVU series is, particularly with the fans, it is always imperative we remind ourselves that some things are just bigger than football.
