    West Virginia Officially in; Starting Big 12 play in 2012

    West Virginia Headline News and Talk Radio

    Note the old ISU logo.

    With this addition, 30% of Big 12 mascots are now armed. Looking forward to either a Morgantown or Ft. Worth road trip next fall!


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Its also on ESPN. West Virginia Mountaineers formally invited to join Big 12 - ESPN

    This is great news. Its really driving me nuts though that they're saying they only want to stay at 10. Just add L'ville and Cincy already!

    Re: West Virginia Officially in; Starting Big 12 play in 2012

    I really, really think 12 teams will come closer to the renegotiation of Tier 1 & 2 rights.

    This way you don't water down the current contract, but you can drive up the new one.

    I would be fine with adding them ('Ville/Cincy) immediately, but I think in due time we will be at 12.

    I just have a hard time celebrating until we get back to 12. Adding ANOTHER top 25 program to the conference does not excite me.

    I hope they come to Ames in 2012. They're exciting to watch and I can't wait to see them in person.

    Re: West Virginia Officially in; Starting Big 12 play in 2012

    Seems to be conflicting information in those two stories, as ESPN says 27 months, but the other story says 2012, but longer if Missouri goes to the SEC?

    I think WVU will just move into Mizzou's schedule so WVU will play at JTS. Next year. Here is to our series starting 1-0 over the Mountaineers!

    Good start. Now make it 12.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: West Virginia Officially in; Starting Big 12 play in 2012

    The most interesting part, if true, is that they play in the B12 in 2012. That would free Mizzou up to pay a massive exit fee to leave for 2012 too.

    Rumors were that Pitt and Syracuse had negotiated a $21.5 million exit fee to waive the 27 month timeline for the Big East, but the Big East has constantly said the 27 month timeline would not be waived.

    So if this is true, then I suspect West Virginia would have to pay at least 21.5 million also, which is significantly more than the $5 million, but they'll also be getting about 10 million more in TV revenue every year.

    Oh, and this:

    I, for one, would like to welcome our new redneck overlords.
