We turned around our season to land a bowl game appearance on January 1, and still no respect.
The Baltimore Sun reports here that WVU "fans may not be so thrilled with images of official Gator Bowl merchandise.... Game officials are scrambling to correct photographs of $20-$25 souvenir T-shirts commemorating an appearance by 'University of West Virginia' in the Jan. 1 game."
I recall this same mistake in the movie Rocket Boys (adapted from McDowell County native Homer Hickam's book October Sky). In the movie, Homer's older brother is approached by a football recruiter purportedly representing the "University of West Virginia." I heard Hickam say in a speech that he wanted to correct the mistake, but by the time he discovered it, it was too late. It sounds like the t-shirt mistake has been caught early.
