Big East Considers Adding TCU

Having survived the most recent wave of expansion intact, the Big East Conference is studying ways to bolster its position and has targeted TCU as very attractive candidate to help strengthen its football league, The Post has learned.

“We are in a situation that requires us to evaluate and analyze all our options including expansion and television," said a source close to the league who requested anonymity. “There are a dozen or so schools that we’re looking at."

Two sources said the TCU discussion developed recently. The school’s tradition, academics and recent success have lifted the university’s profile. TCU (4-0) is ranked fifth in the polls and many believe it is currently the best team in Texas.

One source stressed that there have been no meetings among Big East presidents or ADs to discuss membership. But that source also said expansion has altered the way conferences think. The fact that TCU hardly matches the Big East footprint is a tertiary concern.

Does anybody know the Big East headquarters' mailing address?  I'd like to send them a map.

I think TCU to the Big East makes sense. 

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

It is still hard for me to beleive that the BigTexasConference (formerly known as the Big12) did not ad TCU and Houston as replacements to keep the conference championship game. Maybe Texas did not want them in "it's" conference.
