MORGANTOWN, West Virginia – With conference realignment talks heating up and with Arizona to hold a Board of Regents meeting on Tuesday, fans of WVU give their opinions on if WVU were to leave the Big 12, which conference they would like to see them in.
Spoiler: WVU isn’t going anywhere as they are in a good position with the Big 12.
Below are the fan’s response.

Stay put. If we went to the sec, our best teams would go 8-4 max. Similar with the Big10 (east). We’d win more in the ACC but that ship has sailed, Big12 is in a much better position moving forward

100% the ACC bc they’d be closer too home and have half of their rival games back
All old big east rivalries

It blows my mind how this fan base continues to grossly inflate the value of WVU and its athletics programs compared to these other conferences. WVU hasn’t exactly positioned itself very well and the leadership is in question to interest the ACC/SEC.
Be happy to be in the Big12!

If we get to pick, it has to be the SEC. Now that fantasy world is over, stay in the Big 12, It's extremely foolish and negligent to go to the ACC now.

Big Ten would be great then SEC. but truthfully the Big12 shoe is finally starting to fit and if added a few more Eastern teams it would be even better.

SEC or stay put!

The only answer is the ACC. All the good rivalries. Good in football and basketball and we would always be near the top of the division.

I would love to see us play B1G schools

SEC is the only destination that makes sense IF we leave.
I'm fine with staying. The Big 12 is full of good folks.

Stay put. Eventually Clemson FSU and others from the ACC will bolt then we can add in regional rivals. Long term staying is the best bet

As a Nole I would dig them in the ACC. I have always liked the Mountaineers, would be fun to play them. And I would really did going to a game in W. Virginia. Such beautiful country.

ACC. Bring back the old rivalries from the Big East:
Pitt, VT, Syracuse, Miami, BC. Plus, we could travel to A LOT of away games in the Carolinas.

The only places I would want WVU to go if they left the Big 12 would be the Big Ten or SEC. Anything else is a step down and a step into uncertainty. As much as I’d love the old Big East rivalries back in the ACC, it doesn’t make sense when you look at how unstable the ACC is now

SEC is the only option.
