Now TCU makes sense, but WV does all.
I was fully expecting super conferences to be born with OU, OKState, Texas and say Texas Tech moving to the Pac12, other teams moving to the SEC, etc and the Big12 becoming extinct.
To me though, this is sort of bad because it creates too many teams in a conference to fully have a good solid OOC schedule along with interconference.
You talk about West Virginia not making sense? Colorado should be the ABSOLUTE easternmost school, in the Pac 12, and even THAT is pushing the limits of a regional conference...
