I may be in the minority here but I'm with Rick on this one. The logistics of the Big 12, coupled with schools that have very little in common with Louisville make the lure of it all not enough to sway me. I was against this move from the get-go, and think West Virginia very quickly is going to find itself in a position less favorable (at least geographically speaking...which is a nightmare...with no real rivals to speak of) than they had with border rivals and fairly reasonable commutes for its fans. I'll take the scraps of the Big 12 in the Big East, but I don't want to be scraps for another league, especially one that is geographically located in Texas for the most part no less--unless it's the ACC or the SEC, and even then I have trepidation about being in the SEC. Sorry, but I'll take the basketball powerhouses...the tradition of MSG, the great geographical travel options (yes, I know Texas is no further than Tampa, if not closer...but still...who wants to go to Oklahoma?), and being a big fish in a smaller pond. I'm either holding out for an ACC bid or no dice. I would've liked to have seen Temple and Memphis get added to the Big East and think Marinatto would be foolish for not bringing them aboard. Anyhow, I guess we'll all see what happens in the coming months, but as it stands, I am vehemently against a Big 12 merger, and am perfectly content on staying put until we get a reasonable offer elsewhere. In the meantime, beat West Virginia. Go CARDS!
