Meant to post this here, posted on hoops board by mistake my thoughts

Lets be honest, since the illusion of this being about academics is over

WVU would be fine. Yes I live in WV, moving back to VA next spring, but lets be honest, the reputation of UVA being a great academic school is not going to be tainted no matter who joins, and in this new world we would have to leave the ACC and go to an ivy league type league to get that all academic schools feeling. No disrespect to any of the wonderful UVa alumni and folks who love their school, and academic credibility, I would too, but these moves are about sports. I love UVa too, obviously my connection is different, but I will not look down at WVU. Are they perfect? nope, but they certainly bring good athletics to the table, and regional rivalries and are FAR BETTER than Gtown, or UCONN , Navy or some others I have seen mentioned.

UCF, Cincy, Memphis...whoever, but if we are honest, and this is about sports, AND no "big boys" are coming then WVU makes perfect sense. I for 1 welcome it. We already have UL and we had Maryland for 50 years, so nobody will ever convince me that WVU is a worse option than those 2 (UL hoops obviously has more shine)

I could be wrong, but just my humble opinion. Something is going to happen, and I think UVa no matter what will maintain its stellar academic reputation, but I also want to see the sports program survive and thrive the shift going on in college athletics
