The intrastate rivalry between West Virginia and Marshall has been nasty of late both on the football field and basketball court, and the annual Capital Classic game (featuring a massive, full-court logo from "Friends of Coal") turned ugly again tonight in Charleston as the Herd's Robert Goff delivered a boot to Juwan Staten's crotch late in the Mountaineers' 69-59 win.

The kick sparked an on-court shoving match between the teams, and four West Virginia players would end up being ejected alongside Goff for their roles in the melee. With Ndamukong Suh's crotch-kick fresh on our minds, are we entering a new era of the cheapest of cheap shots in sports? Share your favorites below.
