The big news on Friday's front comes from the West Virginia Poll, which shows Mitt Romney enjoying a sizable lead over Barack Obama for president among state residents, but not much of a coattail effect for Republicans in the race for U.S. Senate or governor. The centerpiece feature tells the story of a former West Virginia University athlete who still enjoys the benefits of a free lifetime pass to all school athletic events.
The WVU Coliseum is a 14,000-seat multi-purpose arena which is located in the Evansdale campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia. The circular arena features a poured concrete roof. The arena, which opened in 1970, is home to the WVU Mountaineers men's and women's basketball teams, men's wrestling, as well as WVU's women's teams in volleyball and gymnastics.
