So you have a sportswriter guessing about the "likely" reason


and not too long after this, you have Louisville invited...a school with essentially the same USN&WR ranking as WVU

Are academics completely irrelevant to conference membership? Probably not *completely*. There's certainly a line somewhere that wouldn't be crossed...but if WVU was over that line, Louisville was too.

Choosing an athletic conference member based on academics makes about as much sense as choosing a research partner based on football. "Sorry, Harvard, we'd love to work with you, but FCS football? Can't do it."
