So for a little levity in these conference switching, senator fighting, lawsuit wielding times . . .I give you a smattering of tweets that have made their way onto Twitter this week under the hashtag #FreeWVU.
West Virginia fans in the twitterverse have started a little movement in response to the lawsuit filed Monday in circuit court: West Virginia University Board of Governors vs. the Big East Conference.
You have to imagine someone is working on printing “Team West Virginia” shirts this week... Or maybe “Team Big East” t-shirts?
Here you go:
