How is Kentucky in the South Eastern Conference in football but not VA Tech?

Question by Why Envy: How is Kentucky in the South Eastern Conference in football but not VA Tech?
Virginia is a southern state too and just as south as Kentucky!

Answer by JazzyJezz
Yeah, it doesn’t seem to make a lot of geographic sense for Kentucky, but it is not so much geographical. For example, Louisiana Tech is in the Western Athletic Conference, Colorado is in the Pac-12 despite being three states from the Pacific coast, and TCU will be in the Big East in 2012 despite being in Texas. They take factors like academic standards and overall athletic performance (not just football) into account, although there are instances when schools will be split into different conferences depending on the sport (Ex: Notre Dame and BYU). It is really up to the schools themselves when they get a conference invite and Virginia Tech decided to join the ACC in 2004 when the Big East blew up in 2003. Plus Virginia is on the Atlantic Coast, so a move to the ACC made sense. Kentucky has been in the SEC since its inception in 1932 and believe it or not, Kentucky was pretty good at football back in the day when they were coached by Bear Bryant. They were not always bottom dwellers in football, so it makes sense that they are in the SEC.

What has the Virginia Tech incident taught you?

Question by JDubb: What has the Virginia Tech incident taught you?
As one who had to experience the trauma of personal grief his freshman year with the September 11th attacks, I feel equally stunned and appalled with the incident at V. Tech. We can play the blame game all we want on V. Tech officials. But one thing is clear..we have to blame our country. Our country is full of materialism..who has the hottest gf, the best car, job, and nicest house..etc. We create circles and exclude many from our networks who do not fit our tastes. The materialism, television, video games, and lack of gun laws, have all contributed to the tragedy at V. tech. I hate to say it..but we have TOO much freedom. We want to be able to have freedom of speech, to carry a firearm, etc but not face the consequences when psycho’s go on shooting rampages. The key is to live each day the best you can, cherish those you love and be happy in everything you do..because in this crazy world, you never know when someone is going to steal your life right from under you.
Stop assuming I’m unhappy..I’m very happy..but I just think we need to treat everyone the same in regards to race, social status, etc and it’ll be a much better world. No country is perfect..we all have our troubles, but I think we need to unite as a nation and make changes within ourselves to keep stuff like this from happening again.
