    We are- MARSHALL! We are - MARSHALL!!

    Congrats to a hell of a football player who would in today's draft be UDFA.

    Is Troy the best receiver to ever play at Marshall? It looks like it because Randy comes from Rand University.

    "Growing up in a low-income area, the one thing we had was a 7-Eleven," explained Moss's business manager and one of his closest friends, Donnie "Blue" Jones. "We've had all-state athletes here, but because of the environment in which they grew up, people in the community would say, 'It doesn't matter. He isn't going anywhere but Rand University.'

    "I was an all-state football player, but when they said that to me, what they meant was that when I was done with high school, I'd be standing at the 7-Eleven drinking a cold beer. That's the university. I graduated from there."

    School colors: Green, orange, and white.

    "When Randy pays homage to that," Jones explained, "he's basically saying, 'I still have my eye on y'all."'

    Outstanding news, and an honor that is very, very well-deserved.

    Congrats, Troy. You should never have been de-acitvated for your last SB; in fact, you should have led the charge out of the tunnel.

    Troy was always a class act. Up or down, cut or signed, he always showed up ready to play, prepared to do whatever was needed. He is a standard by which football players ought to be measured.

    It's unfortunate that he & Sam Gash, 2 heart & soul guys and core STers, were injured & unable to play in that game. I forget from where I heard/read this, but the player who replaced Troy on the KO team, Hassan Graham, was the one who whiffed on the tackle that sprung Desmond Howard for the game-clinching TD. That same source stated that Troy would've made that tackle just he had all year long. Ah well...
