West Virginia was all "Fuck you, Big East," and the Big East kept saying, "Not so fast, young man," but now WVU has agreed to pay $20 million to the Big East to be able to leave in time for football season, with the Big 12 agreeing to cover half of that in the form of a loan, part of which will be forgiven. The Big East has declared victory, but its football members must now find an additional game to play this fall.
