As a result, I don't want to see them representing the Big East in the BCS -- even if it means a Cincinnati loss on Saturday. Sorry, they aren't conference members any longer as far as I'm concerned and I don't want them using the conference's AQ slot to benefit themselves financially and on the field.
Look at it this way -- it'll be good for WVU to go to a mid-tier bowl. Gotta get the fans amped up for those games considering they'll never see a BCS bowl again once they have to start competing with Texas, Oklahoma, and Okie "T. Boone Pickens" State every year.
Truthfully, I don't blame you at all for the way you feel. I just don't think its reasonable at all to expect WVU to stay in the Big East after what happened with Pitt and Syracuse.
