Strange that TCU would move. Annual Boise vs TCU games would not occur (Probably be Regularly Nationally Televises Games). The Records of TCU, Boise, Nevada, probably surpass the records of the Top 3 Big East Teams and also Rival the top 3 in the ACC as well. Thus, they probably would receive an automatic BCS Berth if they had stayed together as the BCS is supposed to re-evaluate the conferences for Automatic berths in 2011. And TCU would have kept their travel distance to much less than it is now.
Also, I would think the location of most of the Big East to TCU
will be a severe strain on a school in Texas. They will probably be the most traveled team (In all their sports, let alone football) on the continental U.S. Even Notre Dame probably won't travel as many miles as TCU will. Also, Notre Dame will probably not join the Big East with TCU entering it, as Notre Dame can get into a BCS with Just 9 wins as an independent already. Now if Notre Dame enters they are even less guaranteed of dominating the Big East conference. Anyways Boise, Nevada, San Diego State and Air Force can probably draw in SMU and Houston to make it 12 teams. Then TCU would have had two in state rivals. Believe me (There is a reason why the conferences are geographic). Its not like you have in the SEC FLorida, Georgia ,Tennesse and Oregon State. Or, in the Pac-10 you have Arizona, Cal, Washington, and then Boston Collge. It because there is a huge cost (for all the university's sports to compete across several states each week. (Jet lag... Constantly!) What player athletes would look forward to that.
