Mountaineer Musket Banned

WVU Mountaineer Trey Hinrichs will not be allowed to carry his musket to Saturday's football game against Wisconsin.

Citing a campus ban against firearms, the University of Wisconsin will not allow Hinrichs to bring his musket with him to the contest.

Earlier this week, attempts were made to work out a compromise solution, but those apparently fell through.

In a prepared statement, Hinrichs said he was disappointed in the decision.

"I'm disappointed that I can't bring the musket to Saturday's game, but I certainly will abide by Wisconsin's wishes. I don't want this to be a distraction for our team in getting ready for the upcoming game. I am eager to go to Wisconsin and look forward to a competitive game. Let's Go Mountaineers."
