Heck yeah! Personally the only place I would like to be would be more is the SEC.You say you miss rivalries, just wait to that patch work conference that is the ACC, gets robbed of a few more schools by the B1G and the SEC in the next round of expansion. We will have our pick of the others as it goes down the drain, and with that comes more regional schools, and an even better Big 12 Conference. Patience my friend, Patience. We are in a great position and I love it!
Hello! I can give you roughly 42 million reasons for my yes. WVU has shown they will spend the cash on facilities. We will get players to compete and we have coaches to win. I can only think of selfish reasons, those that are not good for the school, to not join the Big12. The Big12 was the only move.

Defintely yes. Especially for the monetary reasons alone we could not have done better by going anywhere else. Also the BE is dead now. The ACC is likely next and the Big XII will find itself in an even more favorable position by adding from that conference and giving us the more reagional rivalries some would like to see. I find it refreshing we acted proactively instead of reactively and did not find ourselves going down with a sinking ship. As for our 2 big sports we are going through a transition and we're going to have growing pains. We're playing elite competition with big time athletes on a day in and day out basis compared to what we faced in the BE. Doing that will also help us in recruiting so yes we win all the way around and I am ecstatic that we are in the Big XII.

Yes. If anyone thinks staying in the big east would have been better for wvu athletics than they are losing it.
Short answer: Yes.
Long answer: Hell, yes.
Absolutely ! A lot of other factors contributed to our downfall this year besides the conference change.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional !
I miss the A-10!
Problem is, we didn’t know what we were doing either. But when we didn’t know what we were doing, we were pretty good at it…..
Those failing to prepare are preparing to fail!
Yes. For those who don't I believe it will only get better. Give it time!
