Daily Discussion: WVU in 2012?

It's been funny to hear fans of our new-found Big 12 rivals complain that it's late January and the football schedule hasn't come out yet. After all, in the MWC we were used to having to wait until March or even early April for the football schedule every year.

We're pretty sure now that TCU will be taking aggy's spot in the home/away rotation, meaning the Frogs will face Oklahoma, Kansas State, Iowa State and Texas Tech at home while traveling to Texas, Baylor, Oklahoma State and Kansas. The hold up in making any of this official is the precarious situation of West Virginia, who still does not know whether or not they'll be allowed to join the Big 12 next year. Read more about their scenario here and here. If they do end up joining at the same time as TCU, the prevailing thought is that the Frogs would venture up to Morgantown this fall.

So what do you think? Will the Mountaineers be able to muscle their way past the Big East lawyers in time to join the Big 12 this year? Or will rising senior Geno Smith torch that league for one more year before they make the switch?

Oh, and as a completely-unrelated bonus item for this post- I know you all hate Wisconsin, so here's a funny video of some drunk female Packers fan crying about their loss to the Giants.

I first thought that WVU would make it out, but I'm having doubts now.

I think there is no stopping WVU from joining the Big 12. There may be some legal reward for the Big East eventually, but I don't think it's going to amount to anything.

My only concern is that TCU plays Oklahoma in September instead of November. A/M always played Oklahoma in November -- and if TCU takes over A/M's schedule for the most part then I will be able to attend. If it's September, I won't be able to go to the game. And, I agree with an earlier entry, TCU will play OU tougher if the game is later in the season.

Just hurry with those schedules! Plane fares are RISING!

The good news of the Big 12, though, is that TCU fans will have to buy fewer plane tickets this year. Austin, Waco and Stillwater are ridiculously easy drives- and Lawrence is completely drivable.

I just think it's kind of funny how next year's schedule is working out because of the conference changes. OU is no longer OOC and, if I remember correctly, WVU went from coming to Fort Worth next year to getting the game at home (provided they're allowed to enter) without a shady conference vote.

I'm guessing WVU sorts it out and plays in B12 in 2012. It will cost them some serious $$ though.
