Re: Oklahoma and Texas to SEC???

94 I can't deal with numbers. I waited to my senior year to take freshman algebra because I couldn't graduate without it. I was ecstatic to get a D. So help me out with what you're saying The ACC doled out roughly $34 million to each of its member institutions. So WVU, or anyone else for that matte...

Re: Oklahoma and Texas to SEC???

So Saint, why do you feel WVU would offer nothing of substance to the ACC? I can agree with you on the Big 10. They probably feel it was a mistake to take Nebraska and Rutgers, however I do see why Kansas might be of interest (but it would add another sorry football team to their overrated football ...

Re: Oklahoma and Texas to SEC???

I think the ACC is the only realistic shot for WVU - It makes too much sense so that is what worries me ---

Re: Oklahoma and Texas to SEC???

But if they get several teams in the hunt for the National Championship it does take some sting off not being conference champions - Texas has a ways to go to challenge Alabama, as well as LSU, UGA, FLA, Auburn and others - A&M is clearly a better program than Texas right now ---

Re: Oklahoma and Texas to SEC???

WV academics aren't viewed favorably by some, but recent adds have been similar. SBC would add Marshall and USM proactively. What do academics have to do with it? Quite a bit actually. Big Ten and ACC have used this in the past. And WV has never been viewed as a top tier academic program by those m...

WV academics aren't viewed favorably by some, but recent adds have been similar. SBC would add Marshall and USM proactively.

Re: Oklahoma and Texas to SEC???

WVU to the ACC should have happened earlier and I hope it actually does sometime soon - per BYU, hasn't there been a concern with the larger conferences because they won't participate on Sundays ---
