Thedaonline – Following a West Virginia University victory against Texas Saturday, WVU students flocked to the streets of Morgantown, chanting and burning furniture in celebration. The Morgantown Fire Department released a statement Sunday confirming 35 street fires Saturday night and into Sunday morning. Last week, the West Virginia University Student Government Association released a video entitled “WVU Student Government says,” save a couch, don’t burn one.’ Since its release, the video has received more than 87,000 views; however, University officials believe the message has been missed.
35? Not too bad. I think that student government video is definitely working. Don’t know what University officials are talking about. Back in the day it would have been like 50 couch fires easy. Baby steps.
