Mountaineers get Media Attention PDF Print
Monday, 03 September 2007 20:00

The Mountaineers’ Saturday victory over the fifth-ranked Michigan Wolverines is causing a media frenzy in Boone.

Not only has the game been mentioned everywhere from sportsillustrated.com to the New York Times, Coach Jerry Moore has participated in dozens of network interviews. The ESPN satellite truck was among those making its way downtown yesterday. Almost every major news organization in the country documented the Mountaineers’ 34-32 win. While ASU has already won consecutive national titles, this was the game that brought the most attention to the Mountaineers’ football program. Why? Sportscasters are saying it’s perhaps the biggest upset in college football history, and, according to the Associated Press, that has finally “put Boone, N.C. on the college football map.” Today, it’s back to work for the Mountaineers as they prepare for Saturday’s home opener against Division II Lenoir-Rhyne.
