West Virgina Wins NIT

Postby sammyj1404 » Fri Mar 30, 2007 8:41 pm

i think this is hilarious...WEST VIRGINA!!

ESPN wrote:CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- West Virginia may have won the National Invitation Tournament, but the Mountaineers' commemorative T-shirts are less than championship material.

WVU officials claim no responsibility for typo.

They contain a misspelling.

The "West Virgina" printed on the shirts players wore after winning the NIT title with a 78-73 victory over Clemson on Thursday night is missing the last "i" in Virginia.

WVU sports information director Shelly Poe said the NIT printed the shirts.

Calls to tournament officials were not immediately returned Friday.

West Virginia coach John Beilein also could not be reached for comment. He and the team were on their way back to West Virginia on Friday after winning their first NIT title in 65 years.

When reached for comment West Virginia University President Buford Inbred had this statement.

"Da NITTIT hass dun us rong, and eye will fyl a Protist ovur dis buncha pigs**t."

if they replaced the "ir" with "a", then you'd really have a story. 8-o

Gotta love a tournament that celebrates the 66th best team in college basketball. Literally one of the most ridiculous ideas I've ever heard of. Ever more insane is the idea that people actually participate in NIT pools. Yeah. People actually do take part in NIT pools. Heard some fool on the radio a few days ago talk about how stoked he was that he might win his NIT pool. The radio host nearly laughed himself to tears. I almost had to pull over.

I always believed NIT stood for Not In Tournament.

Perhaps that should change to Not InTelligent.
