Thats exactly what I am saying. Whos to say even without the lobbying by McConnell that WVU still doesn't get in and if they don't, its going to look really bad on Louisville and the Big 12. By threatening a Senate hearing, you are risking not only being possibly left out of the discussion for the Big 12, but possibly other conferences such as the SEC if they decide to call.
If Louisville gets picked, public sentiment might help WVU get into another conference or even force the Big 12 to take both teams.
