Thanks in part to UT, the Big 12 was a very strong conference with solid regional representation - that's a good thing. But now you've ended up with an abortion in regional terms with somebody from the EST zone like WV in the conference and a very watered-down group of teams compared to the previous membership. And that joke of a TV network UT has is the laughing stock of sports media - "ladies" volleyball all day long: gimme a break !
