NCAA Conference Realignment: West Virginia Move To Big 12 Reportedly 'Hits Snag'

At this time on Wednesday, we thought that West Virginia's move to the Big 12 was all but a done deal. We even had a story with that headline. But now there seems to be a "snag" in that plan, and according to the Metro News of West Virginia, that snag could be a late push by Louisville to take West Virginia's place as the Big 12's replacement for Louisville.

The Dominion Post's Drew Rubenstein reports that there was a "late push" by the University of Louisville to be considered instead of WVU. "Sources used terms like ‘volatile' and ‘internal battle' to describe the conference realignment with the Big 12," Rubenstein reported. Last night, WVU called off preliminary plans for a press conference today. 

This whole thing is starting to become a little ridiculous. West Virginia was all but in the Big 12, now the Conference may choose to take Louisville instead. Honestly, when will the wheels just stop turning on all of this realignment stuff and we can get back to the games themselves?
