When you think of major college rivalries, there are plenty to choose from. You've got Duke/North Carolina, Georgetown/Syracuse, Missouri/Kansas, Texas/Oklahoma and the list goes on and on. But there aren't many that are quite as nasty as the Backyard Brawl between Pittsburgh and West Virginia. The football rivalry is one of the oldest in the nation with the first game played in 1895.
So it has to be a little weird for Tia to cross into enemy territory and start cheering for Pitt after spending 2 years on the sidelines cheering for West Virginia (and her football playing boyfriend). Talk about some traitorous activity. That's even worse than Florida State cheerleader Melissa dating a Gator!
Thank God the former level 10 gymnast is a psychology major. I'm sure she went through a lot of self-analysis before defecting. Let's just hope the good folks in Morgantown are as accepting as we are at College Cheerleader Heaven!
