Had the same thought. This is basically coming straight out of the political playbook used in the same region. If you can’t compete, change the rules.I think this is basic disinformation by the schools about NIL. The way to think about NIL is like the last 5 years of the NBA. The players have the power, and they decide where they play, not the league. Durant, Harden and Irving can make Brooklyn into a super-team, while Giannis can make Milwaukee into a champion.
The value of school brands in the future will not be nearly what they were in the past unless the power schools figure out a way to eliminate the competition now. This round of realignment is defensive, not offensive.
The best thing about conference realignment is that WVU always has nothing to fear.M H ver 3@M H ver 3
I’m hearing that WVU would have 12 yes votes from member schools to join the ACC if a vote were to occur. Gee has been in a constant contact loop with Clements at Clemson who has been our mouthpiece to other administrations.

WVU will ride out the next few days to see what officially happens with TX/OU before acting in any formal capacity seeking membership.
