    Teams switching conferences and how it affects their record

    So...since ISU can't actually play in the Big10 and mop up and IA can't get rolled in the Big12 (in addition to the Big 10) we should look at teams switching conferences from year to year and how they faired.

    To me...the brightest example of what a difference playing in a real football conference is....is West Virginia. FACT: I know nothing about last years team other than their record. Are there any WV fans that want to attest to whether they should have been better (not recordwise) than last year? Did they lose any key players? Geno was one year more mature and in non-cons they destroyed teams like they did last year.

    This obviously has to do with ranking NIU in the AP top 25...somewhere that West Virginia...Okie State...Wisconsin...Texas..are not. And ahead of Nebraska...UCLA...and Michigan?

    I guess I'm really just interested to see if this WV team was similar to last years only with different results due to the schedule.
