Same. The NCAA world wouldn't have missed something like that. Rumor mill has been going on all of last week.

I don't know what to say to the BIG 12. Maybe they can get NE back? Since they lost AAU status, BIG 10 may not mind?

Dunno what big 12 will do once SEC get it's own network. ACC will probably follow. PAC doesn't need them, big 12 needs them. Geographically, this whole WVU thing is a stretch.

He won't be able to produce it since it isn't true or even rumored.

Yep, other than the fact FSU and Clemson begged to get in there is nothing. Hell even the board of both schools said they should join, along with the couches, and the fans. Everyone knows they were on their knees willing to do anything and were rejected. Once they were rejected they pretended they never wanted in, it was very funny. At this point even you know it is true. I for one would have let them in, but unfortunately for FSU and Clemson I have no say in the Big 12.

The issue is the Big 12 doesnt want FSU and Clemson. These teams were on their knees begging to be accepted into the Big 12, and the Big 12 turned them away. Not sure what has changed.
