In September, the West Virginia Mountaineers scored a huge upset victory over Oklahoma State, 30-21, and as you might imagine, things got a little rowdy in Morgantown during the celebration. For example, one WVU student decided to flip a car to display his joy for the gridiron triumph, but it didn't come without consequence...

Uh-oh, what have the New York Jets got themselves into? Something that the team is lacking leadership, and for intents and purposes, they are hitching their wagon to the former West Virginia quarterback moving forward.

West Virginia paper prints hilarious error

The Weirton Daily Times in Weirton, West Virginia didn’t mean for this typo to get into the Sunday paper. Or… perhaps they did. Either way, this “accidental” bit of word greatness accurately sums up the Pinstripe Bowl and the season half of West Virginia’s 2012 season as well. Graphic… but spot on. Please, someone get [...]
