WVU has a wrestling team, will be a tough move to the Big 12, but good for the conference. Loss of Neb didn't help them.
Would love to see Texas start sponsoring a varsity team.
Men's wrestling and soccer are Title IX casualties in the SEC - not sure what you meant by "SEC too weak to have wrestling", but you can't have it all. In the SEC, fans prefer good baseball (which actually generates revenue for some schools) over wrestling & soccer anyway - so there's that.
I hear they are going to align themselves with some other schools for wrestling. I am sure this was discussed with the SEC.
