Many ACC fans were waiting on the Mountaineers with open arms, open paws, open wallets, but it does appear, not withstanding and there is no real understanding of this; not with open minds…..The word through the tobacco row/tobacco road/grape vine, is that West Virginia did not meet the ACC’s academic standards and they say a mind is a terrible thing to waste, but what about wasting a chance to get a hot football/basketball bunch, like the good guys from West Virginia??? Maybe the ACC is saving up a space for Notre Dame or Texas…….West Virginia is out, before they ever got in and it looks like the SEC is closed for the next few years to West Virginians too…….Almost Heaven, but not anywhere near the ACC or SEC, that’s West Virginia today/tomorrow…..
Andrew Luck’s dad, Oliver Luck(West Virginia AD) has something to say about this one…….
West Virginia appears like it will remain in the Big East, as league sources told CBSSports.com that the Mountaineers will not be accepted into either the Atlantic Coast Conference or Southeastern Conference.
WVU had enquired with both leagues, but WVU officials told representatives of the Big East those overtures had been denied and they were remaining in the Big East.
West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck released a statement on Sunday concerning conference realignment and ironically did not mention the Big East once in his statement.
“There is no question that the landscape of college athletics is once again changing,” Luck said. “West Virginia University has great tradition as the state’s flagship land-grant institution and we will continue working to do what’s best for our University and its athletic teams. No matter how the college athletic landscape changes, there is no doubt WVU is and will remain a national player.”
