"The Big East Football Conference's survival as a league with BCS automatic-qualifier status is about to take a serious hit because the Big 12 has lined up West Virginia to replace Missouri, The Post has learned.
The Big 12 held a board of directors meeting yesterday, and a source said the league's plan is to hold on to Missouri, which wants to leave for the SEC, for one more year then replace it with West Virginia.
That would mean the Big East is losing a fourth FBS-playing member, leaving the league with five schools that play FBS football: Cincinnati, Connecticut, Louisville, Rutgers and South Florida."

Without the Big East's(RIP) AQ status, I hesitate to see why Notre Dame would bother any further with this? Notre Dame has to make the decision: football independence or a conference for all of the other sports?

That's it for the Big East as a Football Conference. Even with Boise State, no bid is possible. Now, will the ACC take UConn knowing it's possible that we're over after Calhoun? Time will tell.

Just heard on sports news radio that there was a hold on WVU entering the Big 12.
