Morgantown, West Virginia

Virginia out of the BCS National Championship Game (2008 BCS National Championship Game). The game was one of the most important Backyard Brawls, one of the biggest upsets for the Pittsburgh Panthers, and one of the biggest upsets of the season, voted as the "Game of the Year" by ESPNU. 100th Backyard Brawl Voted "Game of the Year" by ESPNU Fans The Mountaineers exacted a measure of revenge when the series returned to Morgantown in 2009, upsetting the #8 Panthers 19–16 on a game-ending field goal. The 2009 Backyard Brawl was the most watched game in the history of ESPN2. History The football series was first played in 1895, and the game has historically been one of the more intense rivalries in the eastern United States. The rivalry between the two schools is due mainly to proximity. WVU's campus in Morgantown, West Virginia is only about 70 miles south of Pittsburgh (via Interstate 79), and the two schools often compete for the same recruits. thumb 300px right The 1908 edition of the Backyard Brawl at Exposition Park (Pittsburgh) Exposition Park (Image:PittWVUatExpoPark1908.jpg) The location of the Backyard Brawl has varied much throughout its history. The very first football game took place in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1895. The next meeting, in 1898, was held in Fairmont (Fairmont, West Virginia), a short distance south of Morgantown (Morgantown, West Virginia). The third and fourth contests were held in Morgantown. The year 1902 marked the first time the game was held in Pittsburgh, at Exposition Park (Exposition Park (Pittsburgh)), the North Shore (North Shore (Pittsburgh)) home of the Pittsburgh Pirates. 1910 was the first time the Backyard Brawl was held on the Pittsburgh campus, at brand-new Forbes Field. The series was held here for eight of the next nine years, until the opening of Pitt Stadium in 1925 on the opposite end of the University of Pittsburgh campus. Pitt Stadium hosted five consecutive games, until in 1930, the Backyard Brawl found itself at yet another new location, Mountaineer Field (Mountaineer Field (1924)), on the campus of West Virginia University, which had opened in 1924. Another change in location occurred in 1981, when the game was played at a new Mountaineer Field (Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium) in Morgantown. In 1998 and 2000, the game was played at Three Rivers Stadium. The most recent change took place in 2002, when the Backyard Brawl was played for the first time at Heinz Field, the new, full-time home of the Panthers, a year after it was opened. Born in Brown, West Virginia, he attended the public schools and graduated from the law department of West Virginia University at Morgantown (Morgantown, West Virginia) in 1914 and was admitted to the bar (bar (law)) the same year.

Lusitania

9 t Pliny (Pliny the Elder): ''Naturalis Historia'', 33.21.78, in: Wilson 2002, p. 27 Production in Asturia, Callaecia, and Lusitania (all Iberian Peninsula) alone - Lusitanian mythology traditionally makes Elishah (under the name Lysias Lísias ''Portugal Terra de Mistérios'', Paulo Alexandre Loução, p.283 ) an ancestor and predecessor of Lusus (Elisha being older, having arrived accompanying his uncle Tubal founding Portalegre in 1900 BC under Iberian king Brigo) see Portalegre, *** Carlos Leite Ribeiro *** Distritos e Concelhos de Portugal, Portalegre, distoedakilo, Portalegre. Lysias' own tomb claims that he was the first "cultivator" of Lusitania ''Dialogos de dom Frey Amador Arraiz Bispo de Portalegre'', p. 21 . Lusus' reign is traditionally placed in the sixteenth (16th century BC)-fifteenth (15th century BC) centuries (century) BC (Before Christ), e.g., in the ''Livro Primeiro da Monarchia Lusitana'' Frei Bernardo de Brito, Capítulo XV . All this is debated; Lusus has also been described as coming before Lysias, who would thus be too late to be Elishah E.g., in Frei Bernardo de Brito's ''Livro Primeiro da Monarchia Lusitana'', Capítulo XVIII, pg. 240, the Dialogos de dom Frey Amador Arraiz Bispo de Portalegre, p. 21, ''Defensam da monarchia Lvsitana, Volumes 1-2'', Bernardino da Silva, pp. 36 - 37, and ''Ulyssipo'', António de Sousa de Macedo, p. 29- 30, or vaguely at the same time, or even the same individual under different names. E.g., in Paulo Alexandre Loução's Portugal Terra de Mistérios, p. 283. Lusus is sometimes called a son of Baccus and of the lineage of Lysias, or the other way around, or even a mere companion. For this discussion, see Livro Primeiro da Monarchia Lusitana, Frei Bernardo de Brito, pp. 242 - 243 The Portuguese (Portuguese people) orator and mythographer Father António Vieira (1608-1697) refers to Elishah (under his actual biblical name) as founder and eponym of Lisbon and Lusitania (when he came to the Iberia (Iberian Peninsula) with his uncle Tubal), as well as the origin of the name of the mythological (Greek mythology) Elysium. ''Cartas do padre Antonio Vieira - Volumes 1-4 de Cartas do padre Antonio Vieira'', J.M.C. Seabra & T.Q. Antunes, 1854, p. 114 ''Dicionário do nome das terras - origens,curiosidades e lendas das terras de portugal'', João Fonseca, Cruz Quebrada Casa das letras, 2007. Entry ''Lisboa'' Vieira also identified Elisha's biblical brother Tarshish as the founder of Tartesos in Andalucia, implying both would have came to Iberia with Tubal (though this isn't the only theory on the identity of Tarshish Historiantes: Tarsis y Tartesos ). Elishah in this Portuguese portrayal is identified with Bacchus' captain Lysias Lísias, sometimes also with Lusus and Phoroneus ''Portugal Terra de Mistérios'', Paulo Alexandre Loução, p. 283 and is referred as the founder of Portalegre and being buried at the ''Ermida de São Cristovão'' (Chapel of Saint Christopher) inside the town ''Dialogos de dom Frey Amador Arraiz Bispo de Portalegre'', p. 21 . A proposed resolutuion of these conflicting versions involves considering an early Lysias, Elishah (maybe the founder of Portalegre in 1900 BC) and Lusus (having as mortal father king Siceleo of Iberia, grandson of Atlante Atlas, founder of Atlantis ''Livro Primeiro da Monarchia Lusitana'', Frei Bernardo de Brito, Capítulos XIV - XVII , to be a possible descendant of Elishah, and possibly having Bacchus as his real and divine father) as coming in between this and another Lysias son of Bacchus (who in this version is clearly the son of Semele who conquered Iberia, not the son of (Epaphus) Jupiter (Jupiter (mythology)) and Io (Io (mythology)) who conquered India or the son of Jupiter and (Zagreus) Proserpina who was an agrarian and herding culture hero Livro Primeiro da Monarchia Lusitana, Frei Bernardo de Brito, p. 237 - 238 ), who was of a different cast but with the similarity of name to the above claimed be their reincarnation and became the new separate king of the Lusitanians since Lusus Livro Primeiro da Monarchia Lusitana, Frei Bernardo de Brito, p. 240 . The '''Turdulorum Oppida''' (Latin - oppidums of the Turduli), or '''Turduli Oppidani''', living in the Portuguese (Portugal) region of Estremadura (Estremadura Province (historical)) (coastal central Portugal), were an ancient Celtic (Celts) tribe of Lusitania, akin to the Lusitanians. They held the fortified towns of ''Aeminium'' (Coimbra), ''Conimbriga'' (Condeixa-a-Velha, near Coimbra), ''Coniumbriga'' (Monte Meão?), ''Collipo'' (S. Sebastião do Freixo – Batalha), ''Eburobrittium'' (Amoreira de Óbidos), ''Ierabriga'' (Alenquer (Alenquer Municipality, Portugal)) and ''Olissipo'' (Lisbon). In the second half of the 18th century, the American colonists were beginning to acquire a sense of having an identity distinct from that of their British cousins on the other side of the ocean. At that time, it was common for European countries to use a Latin name in formal or poetical contexts to confer an additional degree of respectability on the country concerned. E.g. "Gallia" for France, "Helvetia" for Switzerland, "Lusitania" for Portugal, "Caledonia" for Scotland, "Hibernia" for Ireland, "Polonia" for Poland etc. In many cases, these nations were personified as pseudo-classical goddesses named with these Latin names. The use of "Columbia" was, in effect, the closest
