As you probably have heard, TCU announced Monday that it would be joining the Big East in all sports starting with the 2012 season. This will make nine football teams in the division and seventeen teams in all other sports. With Utah and BYU, arguably the best football programs in the current Mountain West along with TCU, leaving the conference, it was inevitable TCU would look to move. The only real competition for TCU would be newcomer Boise State. The Big East offers the Horned Frogs better competition and a shot at automatically qualifying for a BCS bowl. Comparing what TCU has done and what the Big East has done in football this year, TCU should be one of the best football programs in the Big East, if not the best in the years to come. The present Big East benefits from moving into the fertile recruiting grounds of Texas and gaining exposure in the Dallas-Fort Worth television market.
