Chuck Landon: Ohio won't play MU

Jul. 05, 2013 @ 07:40 PM

Pardon me for asking, but. ...

Is anybody hearing that Ohio University is dropping the basketball series with Marshall?

The rumors are true.

“They just said their schedule wouldn’t allow us to play this coming year,” said Marshall athletic director Mike Hamrick.

So, what gives? Why would a nearby rival drop a school it has played 100 times since 1954?

According to sources, the Bobcats offered the lame excuse that they ran out of room for another road game.

I call hogwash on that.
