It can’t be easy to always bat 1.000 when doing promos, but this is a hilarious geography fail that would make Dan Quayle proud.  In this promo for the Orange Bowl, Brad Nessler (one of the best in the biz) goes back in time about 150 years in looking forward to the West Virginia-Clemson game.  I guess he wasn’t around for the Wheeling Conventions that split West Virginia from Virginia before the Civil War.  Not the annual game between Oregon and Oregon State, the real thing…

“the Clemson Tigers, champions of the ACC, take on another team from the state of Virginia… West Virginia…”
