ESPN is now reporting that the Big XII has told WVU that they're in a holding pattern. Allegedly, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and others interceded to urge the Big XII to invite Louisville instead. This of course has the WV Senators up in arms. Great comment right at the top: http://espn.go.com/community/conversations?id=http://espn.go.com/ECHO/item/1319649883-932-388 "Accept both WVU and Louisville. If Mizzou somehow comes back, then you're at 12. If they leave, then add BYU or Cincy. It's not that hard Big 12."
