I'm not a WVU fan, but it is pretty irritating living in the state when people make these kinds of references, especially on national television. It makes me wonder why these people refer to West Virginians as uneducated hillbillies when they don't even know West Virginia is an actual state.
Or when people say we are ignorant for speaking in our Appalachian Dialect which is a continuation of the original English spoken by our British migrants of Appalachia! We are perserving our heritage by saying ain't, y'all, yonder, jeat yet, hered, yorn, Warshington, and far!
