WVU is relevant where it counts-TV ratings(which is why the Big 12 got to keep the same money even though it lost Aggies, mizzou, nebraska and colo.). had the big 12 added louisville like it wanted to, it would have lost a great deal of money.

If anybody found it difficult to look away from the TV during the Big 12 Tournament championship game, you weren’t alone.
The Kansas basketball team’s 81-70 victory over West Virginia at Sprint Center was the most-watched Big 12 championship game in 16 seasons, according to an ESPN press release. It drew the third-highest ratings on ESPN’s networks during conference tournament week, producing a 24 percent rating increase from last year’s Big 12 Tournament title game.
The Big 12 title game delivered 2.85 million viewers, according to Nielsen. The game even outdrew Duke-North Carolina’s matchup in the ACC Tournament semifinals (2.82 million).

The A&E series drew a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, putting it 0.2 ahead of a primetime college basketball game (Kentucky vs. West Virginia) on ESPN. College hoops and related programming took up six spots in the top 25.

ESPN's College GameDay Covered by State Farm is headed to Morgantown, W.Va., on Saturday, Jan. 27, for ahead of the Big 12/SEC Challenge matchup featuring No. 18 Kentucky and No. 6 West Virginia

espn gameday has been to morgantown twice in hoops since it joined Big 12 and 3 times in football since it joined Big 12. How many times has gameday been to Stillwater since WVU joined?

the problem with this is that you can't account for the number of people who watched for instance the Kansas Big12 championship game in hopes that Kansas lost not because West Virginia was playing. and the same thing goes for the Kentucky game you can't allot for the fact of just a bunch of people that wanted to see Kentucky lose not because they just wanted to watch West Virginia play.

I could not find the post claiming that WVU had a richer basketball history than OSU ...... but Henry Iba alone (and his coaching tree) renders that argument completely ridiculous!!

I'm sure the fact that Kansas and Kentucky have nothing to do with those ratings for the basketball games...As far as gameday to Stillwater 3 times since WVU has joined and 6 total. WVU getting a gameday appears to be because they joined the Big 12... WVU first gameday was in 2011 because they were playing LSU where they got their asses handed to them.

This would be exciting, but with WVU having 20 players including 7 walkons that will all be NBA lottery picks.............oh well.
