My first hope after the breakup was always that we get UConn back too.

With all the buzz down here in SEC country about Texas and Oklahoma applying to get in the SEC, my first thought was whether West Virginia will still want to be a part of whatever is left of the Big 12 with the two big teams gone.

I wouldn't mind a 12-team Big East with WVU tradition going back to Jerry West, but that's one vote in 2025.

No one enters the BEAST without dropping football.

West Virginia still has a football program correct?  I can't imagine they'd want to go independent i.e. UCONN.

No-the conference should stay as it is...It is a strong national brand, basketball centric, and geographically aligned. The ONLY program that I would want back in the Big East if they went back to independent in football is Notre Dame.

Why settle for West Virgina? Maybe Kansas gives up on football  ;D

The courage to change the things I can,

Notre Dame is independent in football.

I think you meant "independent".

I think they have to play 7 games a year vs ACC teams.

I believe it's a minimum of five, but more can be scheduled. This year it's five.

There's not a snowball's chance in Hell that WVU is coming back to the BE.

 I think of the football conference realignments as athletic soap operas. I cannot see how anything coming out of all this that would somehow negatively affect the BE. Keep plenty of popcorn on hand to watch the show.

It’s just nice to have a stable conference and not worry about this nonsense anymore.

No thanks to any new teams. Considering the fact that we play Illinois, UCLA, UW, KState, Ole Miss, etc in the non conference, we don’t need any more teams. They always have a few good opponents year anyway and new teams just adds drama if they have football.

No.  Any school with P5 football aspirations is verboten.

Weird to think schools like Baylor, TCU. Texas Tech and West Virginia being excluded from the national scene.

I guess it's good for Texas and Oklahoma but is it good for the sport? NIL money will be concentrated to a few.

Oh well,  the BE is strong.

If UT and OU do leave, maybe a program like North Dakota State moves up to the Big12. They certainly are football ready.  And, if Houston were to leave the AAC, Big12 is ok…and ‘Bama  will have two new programs in the SEC to a-kick. Meanwhile, the BE will be just fine as MU moves forward to hoops glory. Yeah!

Not a chance NDSU moves up, let alone straight to the Big 12. That’s a major financial investment (current athletics budget is $25 million, K State’s is $83 million, Iowa State’s $86 million), and the Fargodome isn’t nearly large enough for Big 12 play. They’ve said they’re happy at the FCS level.

Cincy, BYU, Colorado State, Houston, SMU, Boise State, Memphis will all be prime candidates to join.

TCU, by far the smallest school(smaller than MU) in the Big XII spends $100 million on athletics.

There's no way WVU comes back to the Big East.  Should Texas and OU actually jump ship, I could see the B12 actually adding 4 new schools to get back up to 12 and cushion he loss of their two monster programs.  Cincy, Houston, CSU, BYU, Boise State, and SMU are all good guesses.  It'd still be a good conference from both a football and bball perspective.

Comparing FCS Georgetown football to FBS West Virginia football is pretty funny though.
