    NIT T-shirt not worthy of champions



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

    They contain a misspelling.

    The "West Virginia" 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

    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    LOL Could they have picked a worse word to spell incorrectly?

    Everyone was probably thinking that with out the "i" in there, that is tooo funny.

    I wonder if that was actually an accident

    I'm sure the players themselves could care less, considering what they had just accomplished.

    On the other hand.....this is a prime example of the decline of our country's education and people's disregard for the English language, spelling, etc.

    When I first saw the shirts I just assumed Cajun had been asked to make them.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Re: NIT T-shirt not worthy of champions

    At my alma mata, Western Illinois University, it was discovered at a regionally televised basketball game that they had misspelled Illinois (flipped the o and i).
    And then ESPN got a hold of it...

    Believe me, these types of accidents happen... ;D
