    Missouri - yes please.

    WVU - No thanks.

With WVU you wouldn't have to worry about fan support as WVU would pack Mountaineer Field (especially a SEC team). I just wonder how well it would work in Columbia.
    Nobody in Missouri outside of Columbia really cares the sports teams, they are a bad fit.

    Re: College Football Realignment

    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."
    PAC staying at 12 teams. For now.

    I'm guessing there is still that little sticking point of what exactly the Longhorn Network will be. Can't say I'm not a bit at Texas. At least one of the driving forces is getting egg all over them... for now.

    I am not a Longhorn fan. Or really much of a college football fan. Just thought people in here would like to see that. But I have a hunch that the University of Texas will do just fine, no matter how things eventually shake out.

    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.

    Just want to add I have a lot of respect for the WVA athletic programs. Basketball and football are both top notch. If the SEC goes to 14 without WVA then WVA/Ollie has time to make themselves more attractive b/c I believe we will wait awhile before going to 16. (JMO on that could be wrong.)

    It's all fun to speculate on but who knows really what will happen in the end...

The purpose of college athletics is to be an extension of the classroom and be a laboratory of learning leadership skills, teamwork, work ethic, communication, dealing with adversity, etc. Just because hundreds of thousands of people don't tune in to watch non-revenue sports doesn't mean they don't matter.

    You asked why no one pays attention to the good stories about non-revenue sports -- and the answer remains that no one cares. If no one cares, no news gets published. I'm sure the people competing care, but you don't write a newspaper story just so the subject can read it.

    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.
    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.

    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.

    That's basically how I feel, and thats why I've said culturally WVU is going to have to compromise coming into any new conference. Oliver Luck knows that and I think is trying to work through it.

    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.

    I'd be interested to know if it is true that overall OSU fans treat opponents worse than WVU fans, or are we talking isolated incidents.
