Politicians with back room dealings and arm twisting...what could possibly go wrong

WVU is in the Big 12...wait, now they're on hold. Louisville is in instead. Maybe. Of course both schools just two weeks ago said they would remain in the Big East and were committed to staying....supposedly. Hard to imagine anyone took their promises seriously.

Now allegations by US Senators from West Virginia accusing a US Senator from Kentucky
of being strong handed and manipulating the process. Shocking, simply shocking (tone of sarcasm clearly intended). As politicians are adept at doing, they've called for investigations into the matter. Don't be surprised if both schools are admitted into the Big 12.

Meanwhile, Rick Pitino apparently didn't get the memo from his AD or from Senator Mitch McConnell as he is lobbying hard for Memphis and Temple to be added to the Big East.
