West Virginia, Big East Talking $20M Buyout According To Report

Here we go, Orangeladies and Orangegentlemen. According to Brett McMurphy, who is rarely ever wrong about these things, West Virginia and the Big East have finally sat down to talk about a buyout in the range of $20M, ending their legal battles and allowed the Mounties to leave for the Big 12 in 2012.

West Virginia and the Big East Conference are nearing agreement on a settlement worth at least $20 million that would resolve all issues between both parties, college football industry sources told CBSSports.com.

The Mountaineers will join the Big 12 for the 2012-13 school year. However, in a bizarre twist, sources told CBSSports.com that West Virginia officials have contacted future Big East members to see if one could join in 2012 instead of 2013.

Here's how f***ed Syracuse and the rest of the Big East schools will be in 2012 if we wither don't find a replacement or move to the ACC....

Syracuse has already put a FCS school on its schedule (Stony Brook) and still has an open slot to fill. The pool of available schools is pretty meh. Without West Virginia, not only would Syracuse have to fill ANOTHER spot on the schedule, but they'd be left with six conference games. Half of Syracuse's schedule will be non-con games and the chances that two of them will be against FCS schools is high.

In other words, assemble Voltron and let's jump ship RIGHT NOW. It's every school for themselves at this point and we've got a lifeboat sitting there waiting for us.

DOC Gross, call whoever you need to call to get $20M ready, walk it over to Marinatto's door, dump it on the floor, ring the doorbell, RUN and don't stop until you're in Greensboro.

More to come, I'm sure...
