Nickname of the world famous and world class West Virginia University, also known as WVU. The Mountaineers are by far the best football team in the Big East, winning three straight conference championships (no, Pitt fans, you can't say the same thing, cause Pitt sucks). Also home of the best basketball coach in the nation, John Beilein.
Did you see the Mountaineers destroy Georgia in the Sugar Bowl?
Pittsburgh Panthers are a bunch of whimps, they ain't got no guts. Ask any Mountaineer and he'll tell you that the Panthers really suck!
Mascot of the amazing, history making Appalachian State University football team from Boone, North Carolina.
Important to note, "Appalachian" pronounced "app-uh-latch-un." Failure to properly pronounce the Mountaineers hometown will likely result in an ass kicking from said Mountaineers. And you do NOT want an ass kicking from a Mountaineer.
So, wait, which team won three consecutive national championships and beat Michigan in a season opener?
Cmon man, you know it was them Mountaineers!
