I'd prefer WVU for the regional rivalries


Regional rivalries are what drives fan interest, and WVU brings them with Pitt, VT, and Syracuse. Plus all of the West Virginia transplants living in Virginia and the Carolinas would help fill stadiums and arenas. WVU fans support their team on the road.

I'd also prefer UConn over Temple. Picking up a whole state is better than part of Philly. Temple compares mostly with Cincinnati or USF. It all depends on how many we add. If only 1 to get to 16 with Notre Dame, WVU should be first choice. If it starts looking like going to 20, then other choices come into play. Temple's role of second fiddle to the Eagles and Penn State is not unlike Pitt's role to the Steelers and Penn State other than Pitt has a richer football history.
