Among the hottest topics, the ones that make message boards explode and showcase the vast chasm between generations, is student attendance at WVU. There are two sides, those shouting that it was different in their day, and those espousing the myriad of entertainment options now, and that, frankly, it’s easier and at times a better experience to simply watch on high-definition TV.
