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.

Question by Samian Quazi: Would the cable networks have a dull night if Obama swept all the swing states on the Eastern Seaboard?
Since the East Coast’s polls close first, and obviously we get those states’ results first, wouldn’t CNN and FOX News have to wrap things up early if Obama swept Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina?
Romney would have to give his concession speech by 8 PM and the cable networks would have a VERY dull night after 10 PM.
Answer by MIKE L Chris Matthews would get a very big tingle in his leg if that happened.

Question by sinkohiosink: Once Obama has won the prerequisite Eastern and Midwest states, will the networks call the election for him?
Once Obama has won all of John Kerry’s states from 2004, plus Iowa and Virginia, will the cable news networks call the election in his favor knowing that he will inevitably win Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii?
Answer by Chipmonk I wish you would understand that the talking heads are not running the country. Television is a form of mind control! Use your own head and review the issues. The news media has been very unfair to McCain. Obama spent millions of dollars to buy this election. Vote McCain
