Aside from all the angst and the nail-biting, last-minute loss against Xavier, the Mountaineers had quite a run this season. Making the Sweet 16 in a re-building year with a new coach is no small feat. I think Bobby Huggins' mock turtleneck has magical powers.
And, as the old Morgantown saying goes, "Win or loose, we still booze." Although nowadays, it's more like "Win or lose, we still leave the Quarterdeck at 10 p.m. to go home and go to bed." Which is also fine.
Side note: If you are a WVU alumni and visit the South Beach Quarterdeck, ask for Brent to wait on you. He lived in Morgantown for 13 years and it is great fun to call out the names of every bar and restaurant in town with him, then cheer and high-five.
