The most astounding thing about conf. realignment to me
is how one school and one conference come back from near death to prosper. WVU was seeing the end of the Big East and there certain decline as a football power and the Big 12 was on a death watch after the departure of two schools and now look at them.
WVU is in a position to strengthen its recruiting and football program and the Big 12 is one of the elite conferences calling the shots regarding conf. affiliation and play offs.
My how the worm has turned! Not too long ago we were shading no tears for either WVU or the Big 12 as they faced potential decline and now we have the same worries. I hope the ACC and Tech will come out as well as the Big 12 and WVU but that requires pro-activity on the part of both parties.
