The Big East Presidents and Athletic Directors are meeting tomorrow to discuss conference expansion and according to the NY Post TCU is still in the mix. The timing here is interesting as currently the Big East doesn't have a team ranked in the top 25 and TCU is #3 and about to play in the biggest college football game of the week.
In what several sources around the Big East described as a pivotal meeting, Big East presidents and athletic directors will meet tomorrow in Philadelphia to discuss probable expansion plans, The Post has learned. Several sources confirmed a Post report last month that TCU is a strong candidate. Houston, Central Florida, Temple and/or Villanova, which is in the midst of evaluating a move up from FCS, are other lead candidates. Two sources said if the presidents give their blessing to explore expansion, invitations could be issued before the end of the college football season. TCU is said to be very interested, as is Central Florida.
