The Word on the Herd-Nov. 25, 2015
At the Subway on Fifth Avenue within shouting distance of Joan C. Edwards Stadium, a customer comes in quite regularly and orders a footlong tuna sub.
If it seems Western Kentucky’s offense consumed Marshall in a 49-point first half in an upset, overtime road victory for the Hilltoppers this same week of last season, well, the Herd has been consumed by that half and that loss much longer.
Justin Hunt just about had all he needed as a Marshall wide receiver … the height, the hands, and the speed and jumping ability you’d expect a star high school hurdler to have. What had been lacking, Hunt has discovered this season
Taj Letman doesn’t need the spectacles he wears off the field to see what’s next for Marshall football. The senior safety remembers what Western Kentucky brought here last season.

On Saturday morning, a somber Marshall community will gather again at the Memorial Fountain to remember and memorialize the 75 lives lost in the university’s football team plane crash 45 years earlier.
To say Alex Mirabal is an avid runner would be an understatement the size of 6-foot-5, 317-pound left tackle Sandley Jean-Felix.
Gone in a snap. Maybe it’s appropriate that Marshall football senior Matt Cincotta sees his four years in the Thundering Herd program and on the MU campus in such fashion.
