Mountaineers cricket team was created in 2009.
West Virginia doesn't have one. The highest measure of football played is at the collegiate level and the state's most popular teams are the West Virginia University Mountaineers and the Marshall Thundering Herd.
Note: This question was asked 9/11/2007 after Appalachian State defeated Michigan in the first game of the 2007 season. Appalachian State was the Division 1-AA national champion in the 2005 and 2006 season. Most of their team is back for the 2007 season. They are a very, very good football team. Michigan lost many seniors from last year's team. Not only did they lose to Appalachian State at home but the next week they were blown out at home by the University of Oregon, 39-7. I would say that, yes, Appalachian State is really that good and, conversely, Michigan has some serious problems that need to be corrected for them to salvage a winning season.
