I wonder if this is because you have no "traditional rivals" in conference


You hear stories about nearly all schools' fans being different to conference opponents versus non-conference visitors. I suspect WVU fans may treat teams from TX and OK like they would a non-conference opponent - because there's no history from which animosity would derive.

Not commenting on your fans at all - just opining that there could be a difference in perception of your fans between VT and say Texas Tech fans. Usually your biggest rivals are in your conference. Totally not the case - for now - for WVU.
