"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. The school’s tradition, academics and recent success have lifted the university’s profile. TCU (4-0) is ranked fifth in the polls and many believe it is currently the best team in Texas.

There haven't even been any major formal discussions between the schools at this point, so it's hard to say this is significant. Still, the fact that the Big East is looking further west is a good sign that the conference is willing to look a little outside the box.
