I still want to circle back on WVU.


I know they are doing well in the Big XII, but geographically they are a much better fit in the ACC. They are ranked #2 in men's basketball right now. That's not too shabby. Our basketball powers should pay attention. I don't think the Big XII would fight hard to keep WVU. They live the geographic challenges too.

Tom Jurich at Louisville was win at all cost, and he had the support of the Louisville President. He was successful getting them from C-USA through the Big East to the ACC, modernized their athletics, and raised a lot of money. But apparently he was a bully and used some unfair practices to get it done. We'll have to see what the next group does there at Louisville.
