West Virginians were once again shamed by WVU fans on what should have remained a great day.
Morgantown Mayor Jim Manilla was outraged.
He suggested a "student impact fee" of $20 per student each semester to hire more officers.
WVU President Jim Clements, describing himself as "angry and frustrated," vowed to take a harder line against students who engage in such behavior.
All of those initially arrested were out-of-state residents, but it may not stay that way. Clements asked anyone with pictures or videos to turn them over to Student Affairs so the university can take action against the guilty parties.
But Senate Finance Chairman Roman Prezioso, D-Marion, and Sen. Bob Beach, D-Monongalia, said piling a fee on all students - most of whom do not disturb the peace - is not the answer.
Then what is? Cameras? Drones? Prison time?
West Virginians are on the side of the university, its team, and Morgantown law enforcement on this one. State residents are fed up with other people's punks tarnishing the state's reputation.
Kids are sent to WVU to come home with transcripts. Those who rack up criminal records should be out, forever, without a backward glance.
