    This would be awesome... WVU next year schedule...

    Scout.com: Marinatto has learned nothing from OL,

    They are talking about the WVU AD putting a scrub team together to play the BE schedule next year if they can't get out.

    With the "varsity team" playing in the B12.

    So they would get paid for both TV contracts. Maybe use an all freshman team as scrubs.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: This would be awesome... WVU next year schedule...

    If you are going at lengths to do that, why not just forfeit each game? Don't see how the Big East would let that happen either, I'm sure the conference contract states something along the lines of even playing in another conference is not allowed.

    If anything though this will be a fun story to watch, lawsuits and all...

    I take it no one actually clicked on the link since it's just a random message board posting, it's not actually happening.

    Yea, but it would still be awesome.

    BTW, what is stopping them if they refuse all conference generated money. Is there a conference stipulation regarding the "quality" of team you put on the field?

    There's also no way that the Big East can make them play Big East games.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: This would be awesome... WVU next year schedule...

    Back in the day everyone had a Frosh football team as freshman couldn't play.......we may revisit that The bottom line is that the Big East can't make us be in their conference.....only the cost will be the judge's decision if we leave earlier than the by-laws. This will not go to discovery as the BE will not want their skeletons paraded before the public. The battle now is where it will be heard. WVU filed first in Monongahela County, WV. BE filed SECOND and wants it heard in Rhode Island. WVU is a land grant institution and an arm of the state so RI has no jurisdiction. Once they figure that out, it should move quickly. If not, what are they to do if the WV judge says pay 8 Million and go.........send it the Rhode Island National Guard.

    Absolutely no way for a ton of reasons. WVU can't schedule that many varsity games. WVU can't play varsity competition with a non-scholarship squad.

    This. It would be highly unlikely that a court could\would force them to play in the big east. Damages may be assessed for leaving the big east early, but it seemed like WVU was willing to come to an agreement on those.

    Hush your mouth. I'm thinking of applying my neighbor kids for the Mountain West, just to get them out of my hair on Saturdays in the fall.

    I guess it means this record will continue to stand:
