Morgantown, WVU prepare for post-game mayhem


Both refuse to elaborate.

"It's not a smart idea to dangle things in front of people and say, 'Here's your game plan,'" Farris said. "Coach Holgorsen doesn't go out onto the field and give all the plays to the opposing team."

"The troublemakers are smart enough, will deliberately try to circumvent the order most people want in the community," Farris said. "Will there be a police presence? Absolutely. If I were the police, I wouldn't want everyone to know where everyone is."

Zach Redding, president of the WVU Student Government Association, said the behavior of some students shows "no class, no sportsmanship or respect for authority."

Senior criminology major Richard Hall, a cadet with campus police, called the behavior ridiculous but said it will be hard to stop.

"Students are innovative," he said. "The university says, 'Don't burn couches,' so they burn Dumpsters. They say, 'Don't burn Dumpsters,' and they'll burn something else."
