    WV Not Happy about Travel in Conference

    As if they didn't think about this issue prior to joining the Big XII?

    They could have stayed in the Big East and all the travel they would do is to the welfare office.

    I expect this excuse when they bolt because they can't take the competition.

    They probably should have invested in a globe before making such a knee jerk decision in joining the Big 12.

    Re: WV Not Happy about Travel in Conference

    The last sentence hit the nail on the head.

    But, no real pity from me. I guess I could apologize to our couch-burning overlords for the conference's failure to relocate to a more convenient location.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    This is why people were saying Louisville was a much better fit. I don't understand how WVU couldn't have seen this coming.

    Re: WV Not Happy about Travel in Conference

    For non football sports I don't see why it would be a big deal to group road trips for KU/KSU, OU/OU or some combo of Texas/Baylor/TCU. I'd hope we do that for them. ISU and Tech would be the only road trips that couldn't be a double or triple easily.

    Looks like we're already doing it some, they had @OU and @OSU in wrestling two days apart.

    I suppose this means I am supposed to feel sorry for Misery and kNU's increased travel woes as well? Fat chance.

    Re: WV Not Happy about Travel in Conference

    Didn't the Big 10 do this back in the day when their basketball teams played every Thursday and Saturday? Of course, that was before ESPN started doing the scheduling for college basketball! I do think we need to placate WV a bit and keep our members happy...I know they can't go anywhere without a stiff penalty, it is in our best interests to keep all of the members satisfied.

    The Pac-12 does Thursday-Saturday road trips, that's probably whats going to happen with WVU.

    I was trying to figure out how that would fit or impact the tv windows...would having one team do that create strange schedules for other teams?

    Jim D basically calls the shots for everyone and if he gets his way the new ACC that would be their only option would be the Big East they just left. Things could get slightly but not drastically better for them in terms of Big 12 travel, if it doesn't I really hope we do work with them in any practical way.

    Probably. They could also do Saturday-Monday road trips as well since there is usually 1 or 2 Big XII games on Monday anyway. That way they only miss one of class as well.
