FOX Sports and ESPN have announced TCU will join the Big East in all sports. This is the fourth former Conference USA to team to join the Big East (Louisville, South Florida and Cincinatti) and yet again dwarfs any hopes of the MWC becoming an A-Q. Big East now gets the Dallas-Fort Worth market to add to the Philadelphia, New York and Tampa markets for the Big East network.
This will create the new TCU v. W. Virginia rivialry and like ressurect the old C-USA TCU v. Louisville rivarly. Also, this makes the Big East is a 17 team basketball conference. Room is still left for UCF to possibly get an invitation.
