The Weirton (W.Va.) Daily Times surely didn’t mean for this typo to get into the Sunday paper.
No matter. This accidental bit of word greatness accurately wrapped up the Pinstripe Bowl. The Mountaineers lost 38-14 to Syracuse in Saturday’s game, and really, this typo pretty much sums up the last half of West Virginia’s 2012 season. The Mountaineers started the season 5-0 before entering a tailspin and finishing 7-6.
It’s graphic imagery … but still spot on.
