Several news sources, including the New York Times and Charleston Daily Mail, are reporting that West Virginia will leave the Big East for the Big 12 as a replacement for Missouri (who is expected to head to the SEC sooner rather than later). It appears that the Big 12 will stay at 10 for now. I personally think the Big East can still rebuild into an AQ conference as long as the remaining 5 football members stay and without having to resort to a 32-team Rebel Alliance League. West Virginia leaving alone also doesn’t seem to be enough to spur Notre Dame to look for a different conference home, either. (I think Louisville leaving would’ve been worse from the Domer perspective.) I’ll have more thoughts later, but you can use this post as a new open thread to discuss the latest news.
