Joe Manchin Thought West Virginia Was Supposed To Be SEC

Here's your fun, albeit meaningless at this point, story of the day. It involves Senator Joe Manchin, from West Virginia, and conference realignment. West Virginia native Nick Saban makes a guest appearance along the way, and the SEC is the focal point.

Important to note that West Virginia ended up accepting a Big 12 invitation and is in the midst of wrangling its way out of the Big East. But the SEC rumors and the quote from Saban floated by Manchin in retrospect are a bit interesting.

Conference expansion is just the best.
