Oops! I can see your "Virgina"

Sometimes it's just too easy.

Last Thursday, the West Virginia Mountaineers won the NIT tournament (previously known as the U-M Invitational). Following the game, the team - as do all winning teams after a big game - immediately put on commemorative t-shirts. Only one teeny, tiny, little problem...


Yep, somebody spelled "Virginia" wrong. Now, as folks ready West Virgina Virginia is stoopid comments, just know that the Mountaineer sports information director said the NIT was responsible for printing the shirts, not the school.

This story also serves as Reason #189 that playing in the NIT is more punishment than reward and a shitty way to end a season.

Wait until Beilein has the Michigan NIT Champion shirts spelled wrong. Can't wait to see Michigan's hillbilly coach in action. Should be worth a laugh.

Go Bucks. Michigan still sucks.

Is there a picture of Britney Spears on the back of the shirts?

Those shirts would be worth a fortune on Ebay--how often does something that classic happen?

They should auction them off and give the proceeds to charity or something.
