So yesterday West Virginia announced that they will be coughing up an additional $350,000 to back out of a home and home series with Florida State. We can now add the Seminoles to the list of teams ticked off at WVU for this selfish and bassackwards way of handling the conference mix up.
Jurich has been able to pull a home and home series with them before and who can forget the many metro conference battles we had with them in the past. Our athletic programs are familiar with each other, and Florida State is looking to get a schedule boost to go with their mediocre ACC schedule while still adding a "winnable" game. Both schools will be in desperate need for a quick fix to the schedule if the Mountaineers dip out in the fashion that they and the Big 12* are expecting. Any chance U of L gets to play in the state of Florida we need to take advantage of. That is like a free recruiting trip for CCS and company. It is something I hope we at least make an attempt at and would be amazing if Tom could pull this off. Your thoughts??
