    Anyone want to place bets on where the Mountaineers end up in the conference shuffle? Hearing WVU will head to the Big 12 with Cincinnati and Louisville (if Missouri leaves). Also hearing that Missouri did not get enough votes from the SEC presidents to join, so SEC membership is still in play.

      is the ACC out of the question? They may not seem like a fit with schools like DUke and UNC, but they’d be following the lead of Miami and Virginia Tech from not so long ago. They’re a football power who could immediately play for conference championships, and their recent basketball success would be a nice compliment to this historically basketball powerhouse of a conference.

        also, that would keep the backyard brawl with Pitt alive and well

          The issue with WVU and the ACC is academics. The education you get at WVU is fantastic (I should know as a graduate). BUT some of the blue bloods of the ACC take rankings seriously. And WVU doesn’t meat the standards they set forth. It is why WVU would be unlikely for the Big Ten. The Big Ten values AAU schools. ACC values schools with ”academic prestige”. Now things could happen. Nebraska had its AAU status revoked as they were joining the Big Ten and nothing came of it. So the ACC could happen (most likely if Florida State, Clemson or Virginia Tech bolts). I doubt the Backyard Brawl goes anywhere. They should move it to the last game of the season like Florida/Flori
          da State, Georgia/Georgie Tech and South Carolina/Clemson.

      SU recently joined the ACC, followed by a lot of griping by the locals, the coaching staff of other sports, even radio hosts. The academics should not be an issue for WVU and this conference might be a good match as they recruit other schools. Conference shake ups could result in a move by WVU, but some think that staying where they are is a unique move in this climate and one that could actually pay off.

      Well looks like it ended up being the Big12 and they are getting sued for it now. Its amazing how karma can come back and bite you in the ass considering that they blew a game they should win 9 out of 10 times at home against that Louisville team. Big12 teams are licking their chops knowing that WVU always seems to play down to their competition

    The Sooners will roll to victory on Saturday. The offense is way too good for the Longhorns to stop. Texas has had no real challenge yet this season (and BYU let that game slip away). Oklahoma 38, Texas 17.

        The short horns couldn’t beat our best High School team. OU 49 Shorthorns 10.

    Denard Robinson has to be in the conversation. While his stats were much more impressive last season (he was the entire Michigan offense), he is still putting up good looking numbers while leading the Wolverines back to the top of the college football mountain. Plus, when the voters look back on the season, if Robinson can get the Wolverines at least to a Big Ten championship game, it would be a feel good vote for a legendary program.

      He plays on a team that couldn’t win the Sunbelt Conference in a league of neanderthals that can’t run a lick.
