The Big East is looking to strengthen their profile as a football conference and have targeted TCU. ?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. ?It?s a good program in a good market,?? said the source. ?That?s what you look for.?? TCU is a member of the Mountain West Conference, which recently lost Utah to the Pac 10. There was intense speculation that TCU would move to the Big XII when that conference lost Nebraska to the Big Ten and Colorado to the Pac 10, which also almost lured Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
