WVU Should Allow a Packed Student Section for Baylor Game

Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia Mountaineers will play arguably their biggest, most important game of the season tomorrow night against the one-loss Baylor Bears.

This game will likely be a matchup of two top five or six teams in the country, and it has far-reaching implications for the NCAA Tournament.

While West Virginia University will allow 2,800 fans into the Coliseum for the game, that amount of spectators will unfortunately not have much of an impact on the game.

And the Mountaineers will almost certainly need a real home-court advantage in order to beat one of the very best teams in the entire country.

The NCAA COVID guidelines do not make any sense.  In fact, they’re idiotic.  Why are players sitting six feet part on the sidelines, yet rubbing up against each other during games?

It’s all dramatization and fake. It’s a big spectacle to make people feel safe.

Why are college students able to pack into small classrooms (have you seen the classrooms in Woodburn Hall?), yet not be able to fill up the student section of the Coliseum?

The West Virginia Mountaineers will need fan support tomorrow evening, and it doesn’t make any sense why the student section can’t be filled from courtside all the way to the tip-top of the Coliseum!

WVU, Gordon Gee, Shane Lyons, make the right decision and open the doors for the students!  Cheering on the Mountaineers is no different or any less safe than sitting in a classroom.

Make the right decision.
