Just when you thought the college football conference realignment talk was about to die down for at least a little while, it has officially started to heat up once again with the news that the Big 12 has invited TCU to join the conference.
The Horned Frogs were expected to become a member of the Big East before the start of the 2012 season. But now that all has changed, and it’s set up another domino effect that is surely set to change the college football landscape.
Once again, we’re left with a ton of unanswered questions concerning the future structure of major college athletics.
Will the Big East survive?
Will the Big 12 be satisfied with just adding TCU?
Is Missouri headed to the SEC?
What role will the ACC play in all of this?
While the talk of full blown college superconferences has subsided, that hasn’t changed the fact that there are still substantial shifts shaking up the foundation of college athletics right now.
TCU is expected to announce that the school has accepted the Big 12’s offer to join, and after that, we’re going to have to just take it from there.
It should be interesting to see which dominoes actually fall in this whole big realignment game, so make sure you stay tuned into Bleacher Report for all of the latest realignment news.
