The West Virginia mascot killed a bear with the musket he uses at games

Jonathan Kimble is West Virginia’s Mountaineer’s mascot who shot and killed a black bear. The act was not illegal and pictures of the kill were posted on the Internet. The story spread when people found out he used the actual musket that is used on on West Virginia’s field. This made people nervous. Also, WVU had this to say:

While Jonathan Kimble’s actions broke no laws or regulations, the University has discussed this with him and he agrees that it would be appropriate to forego using the musket in this way in the future. There are some provisions regarding the gun, but none that prohibit its use outside of University-sponsored functions or for hunting purposes. It is also worth noting that powder is used when the musket is discharged at public functions.

So much for WVU being able to celebrate Touchdowns under Dana Holgorsen with a real musket.

West Virginia put up a billboard welcoming themselves to the Big 12

West Virginia is no stranger to putting up billboards for momentous football occasions. They already put up a billboard with the score of the Orange Bowl versus the Clemson Tigers as their speed limit on the highways.

There is now a billboard welcoming West Virginia to the Big 12 Conference after leaving the Big East Conference up. The billboard reads “BIG things are coming” and has a website and phone number for ticket information. Geno Smith graces the billboard in a drop back stance with a football.

Putting up a billboard welcoming yourself to a conference is a pretty ballsy move. It’s something we would expect head coach Dana Holgorsen to pull while doubling down his chips at a local casino and drinking red bull. That’s one of the reasons why we love Dana Holgorsen so much.
