Thread: WVU travel problems

    I hope the people pushing Gonzaga are reading this. The question to me, how does it get this far before realizing it is a problem? People in education sometimes need to be edjycated. Book smart isn't always smart.

    All about FB dollars. The rest be damned. And, this article is talking about BB, much less the other minor sports.

    They couldn't anticipate this before they moved?

    They see the dollar signs only.

    The distance was something talked about on most every message board I read during that whole conference shakeup period. Seemed all the WVU fans were concerned with was that the new conference money would offset the travel costs, never caring about the actual impact on students who had to do the traveling.

    A national conference for football is fine, when you play at most 6 road games and all on weekends. It is the other sports that play mid week that really suffer.

    This is why the WVU folks keep throwing around rumors that Cincy, Louisville, or anyone else more regionally appealing will be headed to the Big 12.

    The way they acted on the way out the door to the Big 12 doesn't have any Big East fans feeling sorry for them.

    Careful what you wish for - you made your bed, now sleep in it - you got what you deserved - etc.

    I love it. Absolutely love it.

    We have talked this to death in the football discussion, in the Gonzaga discussion, though it apparently never occurred to the people at West Virginia.

    I think you guys are exaggerating the problem. USF is further away from its conference members than WVU is theirs - they just want schedules that are more travel friendly. They still make this move knowing what they know now.

    USF is in the same time zone as most the Big East schools and the Big East schools, for the most part, are close to major airports. I'd imagine getting from Morgantown to places like Ames, Lubbock, Manhatten, Stillwater, Waco, Lawrence isn't the easiest.
