The Fourth Tier doesn’t do Texts From Game Day during basketball season, though there have been exceptions. This seems like time for an exception.
WVU’s season is going sideways and, barring the extraordinarily unlikely, will end outside the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007. Those Mountaineers won the NIT.

Maybe something special starts tonight or maybe this is just a special night and this is just a season that only has opportunities like this remaining, chances to shine on national television and do something fun and memorable.
Either way, it’s time for TFGD. Tell your friends. Let’s pick the world up and drop it on their texting heads.
