West Virginia wants out of its deal with the Big East and that amuses Rich Rodriguez
West Virginia doesn't want to wait 27 months to leave the Big East Conference for the Big 12. So the university filed suit Monday against the Big East.
Former Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez, now an analyst for CBS Sports, found that amusing when the subject came up on "Inside College Football." Rodriguez, of course, paid a portion of the $4 million buyout of his West Virginia contract when he left the Mountaineers to go to Michigan. He fought the buyout, but lost.
"I seem to remember about 3 and half years ago, I think there was a coach that wanted out of a contract and the situation had changed, and they said, 'A contract is a contract!" Rodriguez said.
"Oh, it's changed! Oh, OK. Now I understand. The 'landscape' has changed."
