NCAA Conference Realignment: Big East Confirms West Virginia To Big 12

For the last week we've heard a lot of speculation and a ton of "sources say" about West Virginia leaving for the Big 12, but we got a pretty good report this morning, and now, confirmation that is as official as it gets.

Big East confirms West Virginia is joining the Big 12.

And with that, West Virginia is officially out the door. What the Conference does now to replace them or possibly extend further remains to be seen, but this is not a good day for the Conference.

As for West Virginia, they have been thrown a life preserver from the Big East, and even though the Big 12 isn't the most stable situation, it sure is a lot better than the Big East.
