BlueGoldNews Reporting Possible Early Exit Terms

Sources confirmed to BlueGoldNews.com that Pittsburgh -- which announced in late September that it will leave the Big East for the ACC -- was told it could avoid the Big East’s 27-month waiting period to exit by paying a sum of approximately $21 million. It is believed Syracuse, which is also making the Big East-to-ACC move, was given the same opportunity. Sources could not confirm the same opportunity had been extended to WVU by Friday morning, but they expected a similar offer would allow the school to move to the Big 12 as quickly as the 2012-13 athletic year.
