Remember when West Virginia reportedly wanted to join the SEC or ACC, but was shot down by both? Now that they're in the Big 12, they're in a demonstrably better place then they would've been if the ACC had taken them, so one can expect a little bit of chortling.
And chortling there is! As shared by the Smoking Musket:
President [James] Clements was also at the event and during his remarks mentioned that the ACC "should be pretty nervous right about now." Those were public remarks to an exclusively WVU crowd, so take them for what they're worth.
That's a remark made to boosters and alumni, so of course it's a little bit more assertive than you'd hear if it came from an official statement. But it's got to feel pretty good to be WVU and see Pitt heading to the ACC with conference realignment rumors sure to keep quaking for at least the next month, right?
