The news that the Backyard Brawl would be making its return in seven years had plenty of Pitt and West Virginia fans excited, but it will be tough to top the reaction of Mountaineers coach Dana Holgorsen.
Coach, your thoughts?

What’s that? “ESPecially” happy? We’re sure it’s a complete coincidence that you just happened to have caps-lock on when typing the beginning of that tweet, just as we’re sure that those there letters just happen to stand for the once-popular Morgantown phrase, “Eat s--- Pitt.”
As if we needed any more validation that the rivalry’s return is good news for everyone.
