This is obviously a much better geographic fit for them. And as for the Big East, this means come 2014, they would be down to 5 football schools: Rutgers, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Louisville, and South Florida. It's probably time for those 5 schools to figure out where their next football home is going to be.

This makes a lot of sense. Before I really started following College Football, I always just kind of assumed that TCU was in the Big XII. I just hope for their sake, they got some sort of reassurance that the conference was going to actually stay together, so we don't get a TCU to (insert conference here) in the next 6-12 months.

it gives TCU in state and close geographic rivals. Helps with revenue stream and recruiting. Assume that Mizzou is bolting and the Big 12 will need at least one more team for 10. I would guess there goal is to be able to have a conference championship game even if the coaches wouldn't.

TCU to the Big East never made the least bit of sense. The only question I have over this move is what took the Big 12 so long to extend the invitation. Now go out and start chasing BYU, Boise, SMU and Houston before the SEC gives Missouri a chance to leave.
