    "Our conference attorney is in contact with West Virginia's attorney," Neinas stated. "We are monitoring it very closely and we have very good communication. I think things are going to go very smoothly in terms of West Virginia becoming a member of the Big 12".

    West Virginia Athletic Director Oliver Luck says that “there is no question” that the Mountaineers will play a Big 12 football schedule in 2012.
    In a conversation with WVIllustrated.com, Luck had the following to say regarding West Virginia’s imminent move to the Big 12:
    “There is no question that we will be playing a Big 12 schedule in all of our sports for the ’12-’13 academic year,” Luck stated. “We are telling our coaches to begin their non-conference scheduling based on the Big 12. We are committed to the Big 12 and I have no doubt that we are going to be in the Big 12 for the ’12-’13 academic year.”
    West Virginia is currently involved in a lawsuit with the Big East over the timing of their exit. The Mountaineers are hoping to avoid the Big East’s 27-month waiting period for teams that wish to leave the conference.
    Apparently, Oliver Luck and West Virginia believe they will eventually win their case and head to the Big 12 on July 1. They have already initiated discussions to alter their 2012 schedule in preparation for Big 12 play.
    Last week, the Tallahassee Democrat reported that West Virginia was seeking to cancel their 2012-13 home-and-home series with Florida State. The cancellation of this series would leave West Virginia with three non-conference games in 2012, which is necessary because the Big 12 plays a nine-game conference slate.
    But it will cost the Mountaineers buy this series out. The 2012 game will cost them $500,000 and the 2013 game would be an additional $350,000. WVIllustrated also mentions that the 2014-15 series with Michigan State could be in jeopardy due to the same scheduling issues.

    so question is. Do we get TCU and WVU both in Stillwater? If we do that is a HECK of a home schedule even without OU. So will Texas be the "Premium" game?

    Heck I think TCU and WVU both will be more "Premium" than the Longhorns.

    I think TCU and West Virginia will likely be better teams than Texas next year, but Texas should probably still be considered the "Premium" game based on the commercial appeal.

    With OSU looking to get the 3rd in a row, Texas having a lot of young talent, etc...

    All of the games should be great though

    I had a feeling that TCU would take the place of the A&M/texas game, if that is the true schedule.

    also looking back on it this is a MUCH tougher home schedule than last year. Even with K-State on the road in 2012. TCU WVU UT T-Tech ISU. Looks pretty salty to me.

    Hopefully that is the true schedule. It'll be nice getting Texas right after they play OU

    Wow. We might be the hardest game on their schedule next year if we're as good as I think we can be.

    I think OU beats them like a rented mule again, but yeah that non-conference...Of course I don't know what ours is so it may not be much better.

    I was meaning that more for us than a commentary on their schedule. Ours is probably going to be one of the easiest in the conference next year since we're getting all of those road tests from last year at home and playing nobody special in the non-con. Arizona will probably suck again.

    This is about as good of a schedule as you can reasonably ask for with the team we will have in 2012.

    Plus it should be an interesting enough schedule to keep season ticket sales up.
