The SEC needs to reconsider some facts. As a journalist myself, looking at television sets is old school.They should be looking at total viewership around the nation and world on not only televisions but internet sites, streamers, satellite radio and all video and audio sources. In this way, WVU brings SEC football to the whole nation.Because there are no jobs in the state, WVU has a unique national following and a great fan base in many, many states. Again, please look at not where WVU beings, which may place it low in academics, but look where it ends and you will find it is much closer to a Vandy than you may first think. WVU is one of the best engineering schools in the nation and has a number unique majors. WVU is certainly misunderstood by the SEC but with a little homework and a new outlook, that will change. We do appreciate Tennessee and Alabama sticking up for us. Remember, and again, it is like bringing in another Arkansas. So come on SEC, Bring on the Mountaineers!!!
This morning, the presidents and chancellors of the SEC got together for a meeting. According to a league statement, there were no expansion votes or action taken:
“The Presidents and Chancellors of the Southeastern Conference met on Monday for its regularly-scheduled fall meeting. While they discussed a wide range of issues dealing with the changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics, no actions were taken with regards to expansion.”
Now, lets see if any leaks are sprung with regards to how many administrators would OK a Missouri application for membership… should Mizzou apply.
