was STUPID when they didn't jump ship when they had the chance and go to the PAC 12. That ship has sailed. When the Big XII drops to 9 teams when UT leaves the Big XII will add BSU and 2 other Mountain West teams to get to 12 but the TV revenue will plumment and the league will drop below the ACC. No league is going to want to take the OU-OSU bundle and nobody is going to want to take KU, KSU, Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU, or Iowa State. WVU will probably go to the ACC. Forget the Big 10, no other Big XII school meets the standards the B1G has set. Academics and markets come first. On field performance is not considered. The PAC 12 doesn't want to move further east. That is being blocked by CU. If the PAC adds more teams that would move CU to the north and they joined to play in the LA area every year. It is a sad thing but because of UT not wanting to expand big when the Big XII had the chance that doomed the remaining Big XII schools to oblivion. It is coming just as soon as the media rights deals expire and UT is able to market its first tier rights to ESPN and put everything else on an expanded LHN. I think Louisville is much happier going to the ACC than they would have been joining the Big XII. I bet WVU is upset they didn't wait for the ACC as well. Currently, the Big XII is the least desirable of the major conferences.
