No, the coaches didn't have classic moments in front of the media, either.
Huggins, who collected his 730th career victory and passed Norm Stewart and Jerry Tarkanian on the all-time wins list, compared the WVU-Marshall game with in-state rivalries at previous coach stops Kansas State and Cincinnati.
"Go have Xavier-Cincinnati; go have Kansas-Kansas State," Huggins said when asked about the Capital Classic's importance. "It's proximity. I really believe at the end of the day it's proximity.
"You've got two campuses in Cincinnati about five miles apart. Kansas-Kansas State is an hour. We're three-and-a-half hours away from Huntington. It's not the same.
"You don't get all the hoopla that you do in those other games."
Well, that certainly lets all the air out of the Reebok Pumps, doesn't it?
Herrion twice said it was a "crying shame" his team couldn't hold on after not trailing for the first 36 minutes and 19 seconds of the game.
He could've labeled any of the aforementioned - the game play, the shooting, the crowd or the lack of importance to the participants - with the same two words.
At least there's still the crowd-pleasing cheerleader cupie contest.
