It's finally here. After months of waiting and a few tense moments, West Virginia University will play on Saturday in its first game in the Big 12 conference.

This is a truly momentous occasion for WVU and our entire state.

The future is bright at our school and with our proud tradition and history to build on, the sky is the limit.

Athletic Director Oliver Luck and School President Jim Clements, have set a bold course and showed tremendous leadership. With the entire sports world listening loud and clear, we can all say "Let's Go Mountaineers."
