This West Virginia Football Flag Design Concept Looks Incredible
By David Hayes
Few sports fans are as loyal and passionate as those in college football. With the dedication to their teams and the passion seen in heated rivalries, there's a reason fan bases are often referred to as "nations."
With that kind of pride rampant throughout the most competitive college football programs, sometimes it feels like a flag is the only thing missing from these being real nations.
That being said, Reddit user u/toms47 made this leap by designing college football flags that could represent the 10 Big XII universities on the gridiron, all of which are inspired by defining and iconic traits behind each school and its respective home.
West Virginia Football Flag Concept
According to u/toms47, the blue border is borrowed from the actual flag of the state of West Virginia, while the three blue mountains that form a shape of the letter W represent the three colleges in Morgantown prior to WVU's founding (Monongalia Academy, Morgantown Female Academy, and Woodburn Female Seminary).
The two stars in each top corner also represent WVU's two separate campuses beyond Morgantown, and they combine with the mountains below to represent West Virginia's status as one of our nation's Space Grant universities.
Barring any potential scheduling delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mountaineers are still set to return to action Saturday, Sept. 5, eyeing a 2020 season-opening matchup against the Florida State Seminoles away from Morgantown at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
Even with a couple of months to go until this meeting, Florida State has already opened as an early 6.5-point favorite over WVU, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
