Missouri - yes please.
WVU - No thanks.
PAC staying at 12 teams. For now.The league's presidents and chancellors voted late Tuesday night to reaffirm their decision to stay at a dozen members. Commissioner Larry Scott says "after careful review we have determined that it is in the best interests of our member institutions, student-athletes and fans to remain a 12-team conference."

It would be a great rivalry with UK, but I wouldn't want to travel there for a game because of how I would be treated.
The SEC experience isn't really like that at all from my experiences.
It's all fun to speculate on but who knows really what will happen in the end...
"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"

I'm a UC fan, and even I'll admit that a conference that needs to add service academies to keep numbers up doesn't deserve AQ status.Before the sudden news broke last weekend that Pittsburgh and Syracuse were leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Big East was in the final stages of acquiring Navy as a football-only member.
No official invitation was extended by the league, but both parties had extensive discussions about Navy joining the league in football only and it very well could have happened in the next couple of weeks, college football industry sources told CBSSports.com.
If this is the best the Big East can do, UC is screwed if they don't jump ship immediately.

No more teams coming to the PAC 10 for the time being.
Fan treatment has improved though from the Pitt game a couple years ago. I was reading on Marshall's message board about fan treatment for those who went to the game this year and outside of a few chants (What's the word? blank the Herd!), the fans were pretty well behaved. They said compared to Ohio State, where fans spit on them, WVU was better.
The SEC Big East Invitational will be interesting this year because WVU is making the trip to Starkville to face the worst fans in the SEC (Mississippi State). I'd be interested to hear any stories from WVU fans who make that trip.
